Vince Flynn described Roger Stelljes as "A powerful new thriller voice."
Fans of John Sandford, David Baldacci and James Patterson will enjoy this fast-moving story of murder, mystery, and suspense; the cast of colorful characters, and its setting in and around Minnesota.

First Case provides an introduction and backstory to the lead character, "Mac" McRyan and his fellow detectives. Stelljes' knack for gritty and real dialogue (slang/jargon/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.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:
A prestigious job at a top law firm, a beautiful home, and a gorgeous wife all made for an ideal life. But then life gets in the way and changes the course you have selected. For "Mac" McRyan, a family tragedy meant forgoing a lucrative legal career for one in the "family business" - the St. Paul Police Department. After four years as a cop, the ruggedly handsome Mac crosses the crime scene tape for the first time as a homicide detective. The back alley murder of a young trial lawyer from a high profile law firm doesn't add up. In an emotional investigation full of unexpected twists and turns, Mac will need to follow a convoluted trail of evidence, secrets, and hidden agendas to help solve a murder mystery that is his FIRST CASE.

Tightly written prequel novella to the McRyan mystery series. Lots of action and character development and short enough to read at the beach or with a big box of chocolates.

I loved this style of writing and really enjoyed all the descriptive passages which made me feel like I was right there because I am familiar with the area he writes about....will look forward to reading more of his books.

Another good read. I originally found my first Roger Stelljes book in the free books, then when I found this and St Paul Conspiracy, I grabbed them. Really good reads!

As a police dispatcher with St Paul/Ramsey Co I found the characters to be likable and believable. I loved all of the references to St Paul's area. I've now started the St Paul Conspiracy and am well into that book also. I look forward to the future of Mac and Lich.

A great short story read. It gives the "backstory" for his characters developed in his later series' books. Hope he continues writing for years to come.
