My first Mac McRyan mystery was book four. From there I went to book five, and then discovered book six. Fortunately I found books 1 to 3.
Obviously it would have been better to read them in sequence. As in every series there is a necessity to repeat some pertinent information in each book. I found that they included mystery, humor, romance, and intrigue. I found it difficult to put them down. I will wait anxiously for book 7 to appear. For anyone who enjoys mystery, this is a really pleasant read.
This book catch me! I couldn't stop listening.
Narration is excellent, the histories are full of surprises and it is not easily predictive.
I will buy the rest of the series.
I am retired and my enjoyment is listening to books and crocheting.
Yes. McRyan is a neat guy and a good cop. The story lines are interesting and believable.
Roger Stelljes is a good author.
The stories are just so good. I read them all but couldn't resist when I saw this deal on audible.
Not the best narration but it didn't ruin the story for me.
Not one moment in particular. Just love the way Mac thinks his way through the crimes.
Loved the 3 books together. Mac is a great main character with Dick Lick his off sider who makes you laugh - I cringe at the descriptions of his 'Brown" suits.
The stories are easy reading with enough intrigue to keep you going and turning the pages. They are great classic police procedurals and I enjoyed them so much I have wish listed the next two instalments.
I especially enjoy historical mysteries. I don't like to know how things end before I begin.
I envied the first story I read enough to get the box set. However if great dialogue is important to you forget this series. The language is often trite and the relationships are as hackneyed as the conversations
