Publisher's Summary

Deep in Kentucky lake country, Wire hid behind an empty cabin in the pitch black night. She quickly realized she wasn't the only person carefully observing the secret late night meeting with night vision goggles when gun shots rang out... Ruthless killers...grizzly deaths...escalating stakes... A clandestine late night meeting in Kentucky, a murder in a seedy St. Paul motel, a mysterious investigator operating in the shadows and dueling political masterminds all collide to provide Mac McRyan with the ultimate test in Electing To Murder.

NYT and USA Today best-selling author, Roger Stelljes, delivers an action packed story that is the 4th book in the McRyan Mystery Series. Stelljes' vivid characters, his gift for gritty and real behind the scenes dialog as well as his uncanny sense of place and time, will put you in the middle of the action allowing you to feel the desperation of Mac McRyan and his fellow detectives.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Why bring partisan politics into the story?"

    This novel, like the others in this marvelous crime thriller series, probably deserves 5 stars, but the author unnecessarily decided to bring partisan politics into the story in a "preachy manner". I down rated the novel one star due to the political angle.

    I am not listening to the 5th and most recent book in the McRyan mystery series and the partisan politics are not there, This is a wonderful series and the narration is also outstanding.

    Story
    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Electing To Murder again? Why?

    I don't generally read or listen to books more than once. This one was very good though so I might consider it.


    What other book might you compare Electing To Murder to and why?

    Might be a mix between a Dan Brown book where there is a lot of action and a Grisham book for the story.


    What does Johnny Peppers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Peppers does excellent voices for the characters. He has a calming, smooth voice as the narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I spent hours at a time listening and waiting for the time I could listen again.


    Any additional comments?

    Stelljes is a very good writer and Peppers bring his characters to life. A great partnership and I can't wait for the next one.

    Story
    "Good story but too politically biased"

    The plot was good and the storyline was equal to the other books in the series. The negatives were a few completely unnecessary diatribes on the Citizens United Supreme Court decision and the Left's/Hollywood's typical and easily anticipated boogie man. It was laughable how the author proclaims the main character, Mac, to be an independent, apolitical thinker, but the only reasonable politicians were those who share viewpoints with democrats. Disappointing.

    "Great story - feels 'Real'"

    I like the mcRyan series. It somehow feels more like a ridealong with real cops working out a case rather than some superhero. Great book!

    "Another Winner in This Series"

    I'm reading this series in order with several others in-between. I continue to like Mac and the other characters in his life. Nice, comfortable love story without a lot of graphic sex scenes. Lots of murders, again no gratuitous violent descriptions.

    This plot was far-fetched (St Paul cop and fired FBI agent involved in a presidential race). But still a fun read.

    Look forward to the next in a few months.

    Narration was fine, although I had difficulty remembering what voice went with which character.

    Story
    "Fun Story, but come on..."

    I read fiction to get away from the divisive politics that dominates news programs. I'm quite educated & have my own views on Campaign Super PACs, etc. This story was fun, but I tired of the preaching by 3/4 of the way through the story.
