Publisher's Summary

Homicide Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels is in some serious trouble. Her boyfriend wants to get married. Her partner wants to transfer to another department. Her dead father may not be dead after all. And a brilliant sociopath known as the Chemist is poisoning Chicago's food supply, killing hundreds of people.

Jack is put in charge of the case. But how do you catch someone who is always in disguise, who ingeniously spreads toxins in restaurants, grocery stores, and fast-food places without leaving any clues?

Time is running out. The Chemist has something big planned - something really big - and Jack has to push herself to the limits of her capabilities, or else everyone she knows and everything she holds dear will be destroyed.

In Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who wants to murder an entire city. Can she catch him - and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal - without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?

Crack another case with Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels.

    "Fabulously Refreshing"

    I admit to having listened to only half of this book at the time of writing this review, but I'm enjoying it so much that I feel compelled to hopefully turn other people on to this writer.

    The main character is a policewoman who is completely believeable. She's not overly tough and cynical, and she's not shy and retiring, either. She's a real person with real feelings, and she's darned good at her job.

    The narrators afre both fabulous, too.

    The writer has a great sense of humor, too, and the book flits nicely between being funny, and tension-filled. I'll listen to many more of this author's books.

    Now if I could just teach her that Martinis are far better when made with gin instaed of vodka . . .

    "Great listen"

    Another fun read from Konrath. Jack just keeps getting tougher all the time & has the competition to match. This case was interesting & scary. It could happen all too easily. I look forward to the next!

    "J.A. Konrath fan!"

    I am absolutely in LOVE with this series!!! I do find the stories a little predictable at times but I'm so connected to the characters that can't stop listening. The killers are the creepiest I've ever come across but the cops are also the funniest and most honestly depicted people in any thriller I've heard or read. The couple that performs the reading are AMAZING and I'm going to be sad when I reach book 9.

    "More laughs in this one - consistently enjoyable"

    I enjoyed this book - it is pretty consistent with the rest of the books so far except ...

    It got a little silly and cinematic at the conclusion. Helicopter was over the top. I laughed out loud more during this book than during previous books. I didn't mind the bit of jumping the shark that happened during this book because I am still hooked on following Jack and her friends through their personal growth.

    Narration remains the same as in earlier books - a good fit for the characters and the writing style.

    This far into the series with as many books as are in it ... it is worth the time and I've enjoyed it - but glad for the option of kindle unlimited/whyspersync for reduced pricing. Not 100% that I'd be spending credits at this point.

    "Not beliveable, Die Hard 3 fans might like"

    No sympathetic characters and a ridiculous story. I was very disappointed. I was expecting a fun romp with clever dialog. Didn't find it here. The performers were good, however.

    "Good Story but..."

    Feels like this is a Carl Hiaasen wannabe, there are others out there too. More grit than wit.
