Kind of ashamed to say that I've had this particular Roswell book on my shelf since I was 14 and I just now read it for the first time. I know, I'm in the minority there, but I didn't like how he treated the humans most of the time. In terms of plot, this was really good!

This is written by Dean Wesley Smith, who wrote this book with his wife Kristen Kathryn Rusch whom I know has written for Star Wars while Lucas still owned Star Wars. Her Star Wars book was good. They wrote at least two Roswell books together. Their Roswell book "Little Green Men" is the reason I purchased most of the other Roswell books; Roswell high (the original series), and the ones based on the show. This one and the other one I mentioned is based on the series. I hope that helps.

Written by well-known science fiction authors, this book tells of the consequences of Max healing the sick children in the Phoenix hospital at Christmas. Michael is kidnapped by a father whose child wasn't healed that night. On top of that, two men are trying to capitalize on the healings by selling fake medicine to desperate parents. And a reporter may be hot on the trail of the teenagers. Well-written.

I really like it when authors who write novelizations related to TV shows decide to base their story on possible consequences of actions taken by the characters in the show. This book does that, playing on the idea of unintended effects resulting from Max's decision to heal the children in the hospital in the episode "Roswell Christmas Carol". Now, a Father wants his daughter healed, too, and kidnaps Michael because he thinks the young man holds the answer. At the same time, criminals are using Max's unexplained good dead to make money off of unsuspecting victims by selling them a cure that they say was used on the kids Max healed. The group goes looking for Michael when he turns up missing, while at the same time dogding a reporter who suspects Max had something to do with the so called "Christmas Miracle". All in all, the story was a good one, but did kind of drag at times. Also, the author really spent too much time exploring the thoughts of the reporter and the criminals hiding out and selling their elixer over the internet. Ultimately, the Roswell fan reading this book probably doesn't care what the one criminal thinks about the other criminal he's working with, or how he doesn't like the way he is talked to sometimes by his partner. It was still a well constructed story with a great premise working behind it.

oh this book is just too good for any true roswell fans. this
one picks up the story of the christmas miracle and takes an
angle the tv series could have but never did. on christmas eve
when max and michael drove to phoenix to save sydney, it became
national news. so when a couple of con artist decide to take credit for it and offer up a phoney serum to desperate parents
for $15,000 one desperate father jumps at it. little does everyone know, but he was in the ward that night and saw michael
standing lookout outside the ward. so he decides to kidnap michael in hopes of finding a cure for his daughter. meanwhile
back in roswell, a snoopy reporter has also been on this story.
she saw security video tapes of the night and saw max and michael
in the hospital ward. when she spots max at the crashdown she
knows that she has a hot story and is desperate to do anything
for the scoop. this is must read for all roswell fans. i applaud
the authors of the first 2 new books that they are picking up
strands from the tv show and giving them so interesting twists.
i hope they keep up the good work and i cant wait for the next one to arrive.

Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch have always excelled at writing books based on an exisiting television series, and making it seem like the real deal. Their characterization and plot creation have always been in sync. with the universe that the fans know and love, and their foray into the world of "Roswell", 'No Good Deed', is no exception.
The book carries on the action from the second season epsiode 'A Roswell Christmas Carol', and so it is helpful to your understanding of the book as a whole if you have seen this episode and others in the season. But Smith and Rusch do such a wonderful job of describing past events (without sounding patronizing) that it is possible to read the novel as a stand-alone book.
Unlike the first book in this new "Roswell" series, all the characters are utilized well, and the scenarios fit into the lexicon of the "Roswell" we all know and love. If you are a die-hard "Roswellian", then this book is for you. But even if you're just an occasional alien lover, but you enjoy a wonderful, heart-wrenching story and writing that makes you feel as if you are a part of the action, then 'No Good Deed' is for you. I highly recommend it.

If you are a fan of Roswell then this is a book to read. I've read the 1st book "Loose Ends" by Greg Cox and didn't like it that much because it didn't follow true to character. You could tell that the author never watched Roswell. But this book "No Good Deed" was awesome. It followed along with the show. I couldn't put it down. =)The authors Smith and Rusch knew what they were talking about and inculded everybody from the show, and I hope they continue to write more for this series.

I liked this book... I thought the authors really understood the characters and displayed them well... This story picked up from the Christmas episode where Maxwell heals all but one little girl.... Although you don't need to see that television episode this book speaks well for itself.. It was an exciting adventure that included alien teenagers on a quest to protect their identity while they had to go incognito as normal human teens in a society that would see them as a threat if their true identity was ever revealed... A well written story that shows that human and alien spirit are more alike than anyone would dare think..
I really liked No Good Deed. It kept my interest throughout the whole book! I thought the writing was good and the plot was even better. The one thing that bothered me was that they kept mentioning Michael's parents. Michael, as many Roswell fans know, was an orphan and never had parents. Maybe in the book Michael did have parents though. I'm not sure. Other than that the book was wonderful! I would definately recommend it to anyone who is thinking of reading it!
