    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. 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, 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 emotionally charged 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.

    Thankfully, There Will Be More!

    Imagine that you've left behind a profession that could propel your future to unknown heights for a place in a family legacy of public service. Mac Ryan doesn't have to envision that possibility. He's living the reality.

    In a tight and matter of fact style, he approaches his first foray into murder. Ably accompanied by a seasoned veteran, he shows a deft technique enhanced by his tendency to map all of the facets, and finds the answer, gets the guilty party and manages to extract himself from a personal entanglement no longer worth his investment.

    As the beginning of a new series, this was a compelling tale that whets your appetite and has you glad that you know there will be more!

    Murder, mystery and intrigue

    Would you listen to First Case again? Why?

    A short twelve chapter story that is the start of the series. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of the books in the series.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mac McRyan was my favorite character. The book told the backstory and about his first case. A great way to dive into the books.

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

    Peppers brings the characters to life with multiple voices and an easy listening style. The books have a lot of characters so this is no easy feat and he seems to do it seamlessly and creates suspense.

    Save a credit, buy this on sale.

    First Case is a short story. The words to price ratio is VERY low. I did get it on sale and for that price, enjoyed it. Once again, Stelljes refreshingly takes us into a police procedural where none of the cops are Peter Principle promotions, but instead are decent, intelligent professionals who like and respect each other to work as a team. The tension here's created by bad guys on the street, not bad guys among the brass. How original huh?

    At the right price, grab this little thing for a good introduction to the McRyan series. However, you don't need to read this short story to jump right in and start with "The St. Paul Conspiracy". It'll tell you all you need.

    Johnny Pepper reads it good.

    Great prequel novella to a police thriller series

    I look forward to listening to the novels this series in order. Johnny peppers does a fine job of narration although I think of him as a romance novel narrator.

    Mac's First Case

    Would you listen to First Case again? Why?

    No, I very rarely listen to a book twice. I already know the ending.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, but it did hold my attention the whole time. I found parts of it to be amusing. He seems to be a nice guy, trying to make it out there. Yes???

    Have you listened to any of Johnny Peppers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I loved his performance. I think he was "perfect" as Mac, I REALLY hope they keep him on!!!!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    WATCH OUT FOR THE GUY IN THE TRENCH COAT, HE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR YOU!

    Any additional comments?

    Great start ROGER AND JOHNNY, (keep them coming!) 🏃🏃😀

    Excellent

    Good beginning to the series, giving us the background of Mac, his intuition, and how he goes into the cases. Along with the ones who work with him. Peppers has a unique voice that gives you the voice of the different characters and added to the story. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

    Who done it?

    This book is about a good detective working a murder case. I found this story to be entertaining and a nice way to pass an afternoon.

    naive

    couldn't finish - barely got through two chapters. plot, characters and dialogue clichéd in extreme. poor writing - how can you have a 'long sip'????? one star for managing to get this published.

    Fair story, Poor reading

    What would have made First Case better?

    I thought I would check out a new series so I chose this author. While the story was mediocre, the reading was so poor I found it difficult to enjoy the story. The reader can make or break a story to me and this is not a series I will continue.

    Has First Case turned you off from other books in this genre?

    On the contrary, this is my favorite genre. This book was just a poor example.

    How could the performance have been better?

    While the reader was a good READER, his voice and voices for others was entirely inappropriate for the character and did not have the strength or integrity of tenor I felt was needed to bring this story to life.
