    With his much-anticipated wedding to White House Deputy Director of Communications, Sally Kennedy, only weeks away, the last thing Mac McRyan needs is a complicated, drawn-out case. I mean, it’s “get me to the church on time,” right?

I mean, it’s “get me to the church on time,” right? McRyan, a former St. Paul detective who moved to Washington, D.C. when his girlfriend took the job in the new administration, is no longer employed as a full-time cop. He’s independently wealthy, thanks to the sale of a business and also a recently published book with his FBI partner, Dara Wire. Mac and Dara first worked together on a political case and collaborated with a writer to tell their story. Now they take on special cases at the request of the FBI. When a serial killer known as “Ruben” re-emerges after a three-year hiatus, this becomes one of those times when their expertise is required. A Rubenesque, otherwise called a “plus-sized” woman, is found strangled and carefully displayed à la a Ruben’s famous painting, along with a ticking clock and a clue as to who will be the next victim in Next Girl On The List. Police investigators in Boston, Chicago, and Los Angeles have failed to solve the clues, although in one instance they came within minutes of being on time. Mac actually becomes involved when Ruben personally calls him and basically invites him to play his “game”. That’s what it is to him – a game of “taunt and haunt.” Now that Mac and Dara have become renowned crime stoppers, the killer knows he is up against the best. Not only is Mac a highly intelligent law school graduate and former attorney, but he is also an experienced street cop and detective. Dara Wire, a former FBI agent, is as tough and as professional as they come. The two special agents complement each other and are sure to give this elusive serial killer a run for his money. Besides that, they have the resources of the D.C. police and the FBI on their side. I’ve read each of the previous books in Stelljes’ McRyan series, and this one had me feeling reluctant to do anything else but read. As serial killer thrillers go, this was fairly tame; the crime scenes are not grisly and gory. There is no torture. I’m not even sure there’s blood, or at least not much. But it had me riveted. The cat-and-mouse game between the killer called Ruben and Mac McRyan kept me thoroughly engaged. This killer was patient, meticulous, and followed a plan. Could Mac sort it all out before more women died? Then. The unexpected twist. Oh my! Well done, Mr. Stelljes. There were a few details in that scenario that didn’t quite add up for me, but I chalked it up to artistic license, since we’re dealing with art here. The Next Girl on the List is my favorite book in the series so far. One side note – it wouldn’t be a McRyan book without a local reference. This time the one I caught (there may be more) was the indy book store, Once Upon A Crime, on Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis. I know that many readers have probably never heard of Roger Stelljes; I only discovered his books a couple years ago. What caught my eye was that he is a Minnesota author. What keeps me reading, however, is his writing. I love his characters and his stories. It’s as simple as that. And in my opinion, the stories are getting better all the time. 4.5 stars

The protagonist is very well developed, dynamic and likable character, whose investigative skills are far superior to his peers. Four, not five stars because of a major faux pas on Mac's part for identifying himself too soon and allowing killer to escape (that was so lame and just stupid). Also, I strongly suspected who was another "bad guy" following a car fatality.....and Mac should have, too. Therefore, the denouement was a bit disappointing and very anti- climactic. Exciting series for those who enjoy police procedural thrillers! I always look forward to the next installment! FANTASTIC yet not well known series! Start at the beginning if you like police procedural thrillers! Fast paced, character driven, electrifying! Cheap or free on Amazon!

    This is the author's best book yet in the series even though I've enjoyed all of them. While the others were suspenseful, this one was a real nail biter for me. I couldn't put it down. Even took it with me on trips to the bathroom! Mac McRyan is once again teamed with Dara Wire in what I think is their most interesting case yet. They have a serial killer on their hands who, for some reason unbeknownst to them, is posing his bodies to resemble paintings by well known artist Peter Paul Rubens. The This is the author's best book yet in the series even though I've enjoyed all of them. While the others were suspenseful, this one was a real nail biter for me. I couldn't put it down. Even took it with me on trips to the bathroom! Mac McRyan is once again teamed with Dara Wire in what I think is their most interesting case yet. They have a serial killer on their hands who, for some reason unbeknownst to them, is posing his bodies to resemble paintings by well known artist Peter Paul Rubens. The killer, himself, refers to himself as Rubens. Not only does he take his time staging the bodies elaborately but at the scene of each crime he leaves McRyan and Wire a clue and a timer. Its up to them to find the clue, which happens to be the name of the killer's next victim, decipher it, and race to find the woman before Rubens can complete his dastardly deed. As they dig into the investigation, they are amazed at Ruben's diligence in choosing the women he kills. Each one is what is referred to as being Rubenesque in stature. In all of the artist's paintings the women are plus sized so this is the type of woman the killer stalks. McRyan discovers Rubens has spent weeks, sometimes months, following his next victim, learning her likes and dislikes, her circle of friends if she has any, where she shops, what she reads, if she visits art galleries, museums, libraries. Mac learns the killer is well educated and can presumably relate to the women's interests which is what helps to attract them to him. The women are always loners with no family and few friends so there's little chance of anyone remembering Rubens later. His plotting of their demise is meticulous, leaving no room for error. As Mac and Dara ferret out the clues, which is like finding a needle in a haystack, the clock is ticking. As their team works to find the identity of the next victim, Mac tries to get into the guy's head, to figure out what motivates him, how his mind works, and why he's chosen Rubens over all the other great artists. Mac also has to consider the phone calls he gets from the killer, taunting him, challenging him at every turn. I was hooked from the start with this one and the ending was a total surprise. I did not see it coming. The sad part is waiting for the next book to come out to see where Mac and Dara go from here. Judging from the author's previous work, its bound to be good.

He's hit 4 major cities in 10 years, he kills 4 women in each city and then lies low until he re-surfaces a few years later. Now he's in Washington and the game begins again. At each scene he leaves a timer and a clue about who the next victim will be. The clues are so obscure as to be useless. He also taunts the police. This time he has picked on Mac McRyan and Dara Wires. Has he met his match in these two? Mac decides to play the game a bit differently and focus on the killer instead of the victims. Progress is slow but steady. They nearly catch him a couple of times but are no closer to knowing who he is. Then a breakthrough! And from there it gets really interesting. The stakes are high as they desperately race to save the life of the latest victim and catch the killer before he disappears again. The clock is ticking. There is a shocking twist at the end (although I had my suspicions) that is a fitting finale to a very gripping book.

    Great installment in the Mac McRyan series. A serial killer who has killed in three cities and never been caught comes to D.C. To go against Mac and Wire in his little game. He puts them on the clock to catch him before he commits four murders and disappears. The pace of the novel is quick, and Stelljes does a great job keeping readers on edge.

    This book was quite interesting. Interesting characters, interesting plot and overall a really good whodunit?? I really enjoyed the police procedures and the profile work. The ending was very unexpected and I liked it a lot. Looking forward to the follow up. I read a lot of these kind of books so it takes A LOT to wow me to a 5. This one was close to a 4.5 I would recommend it for a mystery with a bunch of police, fbi and profiler stuff.

Only an honest one. A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written murder mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of.

This fast paced, involved and exciting thriller is both cleverly written and equally excellently read by Johnny Peppers who breathes extra life into the characters and constantly holds the listeners attention with his well paced and modulated narration. Whilst the identity of the perpetrator might be guessed at by the listener, it is not until the very ending that all is revealed A really enjoyable thriller, complete with police procedurals to give pleasure to all who enjoy the genre. When I requested a copy of Next Girl on the list, I was unfamiliar with the earlier books in the series but this stood well as a standalone. My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me a complimentary copy. I will now be looking out for the other books in this series.

    All of the McRyan mysteries by Stelljes are good stories, well told. They're real page-turners that any mystery reader will love.

I strongly recommend Stelljes and McRyan books. Really good stuff, and I think you'll enjoy them. On the plus side, the stories are well-constructed and compelling. The characters are well drawn and varied, as well as sometimes being complex. The plots will pull you into the stories and keep your interest. The pace is fast and as your move toward the conclusion, you won't be able to stop reading. If I have any criticism, it's that McRyan is a little too perfect--a little too good to be true. It's also a little hard to accept the ease with which McRyan moved from Saint Paul, MN police detective to Presidential savior and part-time FBI Special Agent. The plots could have just as easily been written with more believable settings. Still, none of that criticism has kept me from enjoying every book in the series, and I eagerly await the next book. Sadly, I've read them all. Bummer.

    I have really enjoyed the McRyan series so far. This is the 7th in the series and the 7th that I have listened to. I find the stories to be quick, engaging, and interesting. This book was no exception. I flew through this book in one weekend, listening while doing chores or driving. The case had enough details that I didn't feel bored, and enough twists and differences that it didn't seem like a copy of the last books.

One note on the narration - Although I enjoyed this narrator, I did find that I needed to speed up the narration to feel like it was at the correct pace. I find many of the audiobooks on audible to be reaaaalllly slow. To fully enjoy this and feel like the reading was at the same fast pace as the story, I listened at 1.6x speed. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left my honest review. The free copy did not influence my review in any way.

    The Stroyline is fine and interesting, the plot a bit thin. And detective wise allot of mistakes were made. Not the kind you would expect from the detective Alpha male that is mcRyan. Schoolboy errors. But why in every single book a recap of McRyan his merrits, things he did, why he became a cop..and every single book had a chapter on him doing three rounds with his lady.

    This is the seventh book in the McRyan series and Roger Stelljes is still writing a superior mystery thriller. This was a fantastic novel that had me hooked fm the beginning. I've read all the books in the series and Mac and Dara just keep getting better. I thought I had it figured out, but was a little off in my choices. Great storyline and even greater ending. It intentionally leaves things open for a future novel. Superb writing and full of suspense. Looking forward to another in the series.

    Wow factor on almost every page Mac and Wire rocket this serial killer episode with full on suspense. The action and intrigue abound as the full extent of the puzzle continues to the very end. In between, Mac prepares for a wedding as Wire backs up her partner in the action and mystery. The author is a master story teller who spins interest on every page. Five stars all over this yarn.

    Great Read It seemed a little slow going at first (either that, or I was just tired at the time) It definitely picked up and took hold of you. I won't bother with a recitation of the book description (as obviously you can read). I will say that there is a twist at the end that will keep you guessing. This is the third book I've read by this author, and greatly enjoyed. If you like suspense and surprises, you will be satisfied reading this series.

    Awesome book. Once I started this book I was captivated And unable to stop reading. The characters were believable and fascinating. The pace was a steady gallop. Alice played her role remarkably, and I am looking forward to reacquainting when she decides to reappear

    More!! I like this guy more with each book by him I read. This has a great plot line, if a little thin on believability now and again, but maybe that's just me looking for something to pick at. Good, tight writing.. Keep 'em comin'! More!! I like this guy more with each book by him I read.

    Roger Stelljes is one of the very best mystery writers! I love Roger Stelljes books. This one was hard to put down. Mac McRyan and Dara make such a great team. I love the way there’s always a surprise ending, and this one was no exception. A very good read!
