Overview

Reckoning is the third book in the Detective Bobby Mac Thriller series, returning Detective Bobby Mac to the streets of Denver. It’s been ten years since facing the loss of his brother, Jax, but Mac has a new life now with his wife and daughters.

When a series of murders grips the city in terror, Mac joins an inter-agency task force charged with bringing the Judas Killer to justice.

After eight murders over the course of a year and the task force being no closer than when they began, events take a brutally personal turn. Detective Mac will come face-to-face with a past he’s been running from for over a decade.

Once again in a gritty cop-drama twisted with a bit of the paranormal, the storytelling that has been compared to a mixture of Dennis Lehane, James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly, and Dean Koontz, R.S. Guthrie brings you his best Bobby Mac book yet. Reckoning will bring the trilogy of books together for a finale that will have you riding the edge of your seat and your jaw on the floor.

Meet the Author

R.S. Guthrie grew up in Iowa and Wyoming. He has been writing fiction, essays, short stories, and lyrics since college.

"Black Beast: A Clan of MacAulay Novel" marked Guthrie's first major release and it heralded the first in a series of Detective Bobby Macaulay (Bobby Mac) books. The second in the series (Lost) hit the Kindle shelves December of 2011.

Guthrie's "Blood Land" is the first in the Sheriff James Pruett Mystery/Thriller series and represents a project that is close to his heart: it is set in a fictional town in the same county where he spent much of his childhood and still visits.

Guthrie lives in Colorado with his wife, Amy, three young Australian Shepherds, and a Chihuahua who thinks she is a 40-pound Aussie!

    For Some There Is A Reckoning. Today I Was Served Mine: Just whe

    For Some There Is A Reckoning. Today I Was Served Mine: Just when I think I can recognize the writing of R.S. Guthrie, he surprises me once again. He has become a chameleon in styles of writing. Each time finding a new way to entrance me with his story. I have read all of his books, most recent of his releases: Blood Land and Money Land. His writing in that series is melodious, deep, driving you ever forward within the pages of his imagination. Then along comes Reckoning, the third and last in the Clan of Macaulay trilogy.

    I have no other word than "mesmerizing" to describe his writing style in Reckoning. Denver Detective Bobby "Mac" Macaulay has been thrust into a battle between the forces of Good and Evil, not by his choosing but a path that has been preordained by his lineage. Black Beast where it all began, LOST where the unthinkable happened, and now Reckoning where, as Bobby Mac declares, "this is where it all ends." R.S. Guthrie writes with an edge and stays close to the police officer's vest in telling it from a detective's point-of-view in this easy-to-believe, could-really-happen, tale.

    I'm sure from the male reader's perspective, Bobby Mac comes off as a man's man: hard, walking that sometimes obscure line between justice and fairness, dishing out better than he gets; I can tell you with certainty that from the female reader's perspective, Bobby Mac comes off as not only that true man's man, with bravado, intelligence, tenderness, and loyalty, but also with a healthy dose of sexissimo.

    From the first page you are placed into a scene filled with tension and fear, a place none of us want to ever be; you are led into a maze filled with twists and turns, a behind the scenes look at how a serial killer is profiled, hunted down, or...is the serial killer the one doing the hunting? R.S. Guthrie kept me guessing, never allowing me to figure out completely what was coming next - perhaps, you think, you have a suspicion - but you'll never be right. That is one consistency with this author, he NEVER lets you see what's beyond the bend in the curve until he's ready. 

    The ending is brilliant and, contrary to a great number of books, the Epilogue wraps it all up and leaves you breathless with the last line. You can't imagine it turning out any better or being told in a more masterful way.

    From Reckoning: "A reckoning is nothing less than a demand for the balancing of the scales of truth." Today, as I turned the last page, I found I had a payment of truth of my own due: That I sincerely hope R.S. Guthrie decides to continue to write more books with the Bobby Mac character. Life just wouldn't be the same without Bobby Mac in it, or the hope that someone like him could exist.

    !

    Only one review and its a plot spoiler. Come on bn. Please do something to these plot sploilers who persist on ruining books for readers . Before someone says dont read them, i dont, but they are so long, when the basically tell everything that happens that you have to scroll forever to get past them, you usually end up seeing something that spoils the story. It is rude and inconsiderate to do that. These ppl should be banned from posting.

    After 126 Nook books, this is without a doubt the worst thing ever written. No development of characters, a plot that rambles without a reasonable explanation of the purpose of the story. Amaturish and idiotic. Fuggedabowdit.
