Publisher's Summary

JA Konrath, known for the Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels thrillers set in Chicago, offers this collection of short stories and novellas from the Jack Daniels universe.

Join Jack Daniels, her partner Herb Benedict, private eye Harry McGlade, and part-time criminal Phineas Troutt, in this omnibus of 15 stories.

These were previous published in magazines and anthologies, and many are long out of print.

On the Rocks - Suicide or murder? Lt. Jack Daniels solves a locked room mystery.

Whelp Wanted - P.I. Harry McGlade becomes a dognapper in order to stop a dognapper, or something like that.

Street Music - Phineas Troutt hunts a prostitute through the dangerous streets of Chicago. Are his intentions pure?

The One That Got Away - The Gingerbread Man (the villain from WHISKEY SOUR) hunts one final victim.

With a Twist - It looked like the man fell from a great height, but the body is in his living room. Jack Daniels solves another impossible crime.

Epitaph - Phin Troutt takes on a Chicago street gang with vengeance on his mind.

Taken to the Cleaners - Harry McGlade tries to solve a difficult mystery, but mostly just goofs off.

Body Shots - Jack Daniels faces her most challenging case yet; a school shooting. But does she know more about the perp than she realizes?

Suffer - Phineas Troutt has taken some questionable jobs, but will he murder a man's wife?

School Daze - P.I. Harry McGlade investigates a private school, but he's not entirely sure why.

Overproof - While shopping on the Gold Coast, Jack Daniels notices traffic has come to a stand-still. When she realizes what the problem is, she's confronted with her own mortality, and the possible deaths of hundreds.

Bereavement - How badly does Phineas Troutt need a fix? What is he willing to do?

Pot Shot - Detective Herb Benedict just wants a home cooked meal. But his plans get interrupted by a very determined sniper.

Last Request - Phineas Troutt picks up a hitchhiker, with deadly results.

The Necro File - Harry McGlade investigates some bizarre murders in this hilarious, gore-filled mini-epic. (Author's note: This is easily the funniest thing I've ever written, but it's also very offensive. Let the reader beware...)

Crack another case with Jack.

    "Love the J.D. series"

    If you enjoy gross but funny cop stories, listening to J.A. Konrath books read by Hill and Dawe are a must. I wonder where Konrath comes up with some of the gross detail and yet he can be so very witty. You will cringe and laugh at these short stories. It is a nice touch to have personal notes by Konrath attached to each story.

    "Fantastic"

    Love the gritty, dirty nature of these stories with the humanization of the characters. It's lovable and believable. Home run!

    "Love Jack Daniels stories"

    Love the humor in these stories. The narration makes them work at times, and the banter between Jack and Herb is well worth the listen. I've listened to or read all the Jack Daniels mysteries and if you like them, you won't want to miss this collection. These give us a better understanding of the character Phin, as there are several of his stories included.

    "Love JD but not a fan of these short stories"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Jack deserves more than a few short stories thrown together. I couldn't get focued on the short stories like I can with the full novels.


    Any additional comments?

    Previous short stories about Jack and her pals but the book could not hold my attention.
