Twenty years ago a young cop named Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels arrested one of the most sadistic killers she'd ever encountered. She has since retired from the Chicago Police Department in order to raise her toddler daughter.
But old grudges never die. They fester until the right opportunity comes along.
While on vacation in the Wisconsin North Woods, Jack learns - too late - that her old adversary is out of prison. He has revenge on his mind. And he's bringing an army with him.
Outnumbered, outgunned, and cut off from the outside world, Jack Daniels is about to learn the meaning of last stand.
This is the ninth Jack Daniels novel, after Stirred. More than one million Jack Daniels novels have been sold worldwide.
Rum Runner by JA Konrath
That which does not kill you keeps trying....

I love this series, but hated that he went with a male narrator for Jack. The previous narrators who have narrated the whole series until this point were the true voices of Jack, Herb & Harry that we've all come to love over the years. What a way to ruin a great audiblle series. I quit listening and just read the book, because it wasn't Jack
I was so excited to see a new Jack Daniels book! First just let me say Bob is a very good narrator but when you have a series of books read by the same narrators, changing narrators threw me off. I kept getting lost between who was talking, Fin or Jack. I also didn't get those creepy cringing belly laughing reactions that I got from the last eight books, not sure if it was due to to the change of narrators, the authors writing or a combination of the two.
......... a Konrath book has not rec'd an ask 5 star rating from me.
I've listened/read just about all Konrath books and was sorely disappointed in this and Last Call (as well as Webcam).
I've listened to many audio books over the years and to many different narrators.
In my opinion Bob Walkenhorst is one of my least liked narrators.
It is my opinion that he gave nothing to separate the different characters, I spent too much time trying to figure out who was "talking" threw out the book.
In my opinion, his voice did not give any emotion to the story. Mostly due to the narrator, I struggled to get thru this book.
Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed in the three books that he had narrated thus far.
As fir the story line, it was ok. I felt that it was rushed, it did not compare to the others that came before this. I was disappointed in the way that the Jack Daniel's character developed in this book. I do understand where Mr Konrath was trying to go with herbut to me, I think he missed the mark or maybe went to far.
Again this is only my opinion and I thank you for reading my comments.
I'm always waiting for another Jack Daniels story but the narration really threw me off on this one. I miss Jack and Herbs voices. As far as the plot I thought it was good I really enjoy Harry but he didn't come across the same with this narrator. Something was off.
Always Jack. She's cool.
No thank you.
It inspired me to start listening to audiobooks again
Please listen to your readers and get the really good voices back for Jack, Herb, and Harry. It makes a huge difference. Please keep the Jack Daniels novels I love them
could not put it down..... one of the best....... must read love love love.... thought could not top stirred but wow.
I've loved these stories from the first book! Unfortunately, after the sixth book, they really went downhill. The seventh book was so-so, but this last one was horrible! I'm so sorry this has happened, because these were so funny and enjoyable. The main character, Jack Daniels, has become so unlikable and ridiculous I just can't read them anymore. The narrator has been changed from the original books, and this guy is just terrible. When the books started going downhill, I thought that perhaps the author just had a misstep. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and kept trying, but I just can't read them anymore. Don't waste your money.
Less gruesome than others.I loved the book but hated the narrator he sucked..I had to read it and pissed I spent money to listen as he was so awful it almost wrecked the book..looked to see if next book is narrated as I like to listen while i clean or sew can't find it...humm
It was full of non-stop action and lots of humor.
Harry McClade. He's so crude and rude he's hysterically funny.
Good performance but bad with female voices. It was difficult to tell when Jack was talking and made it confusing. Liked the music and sound effects though.
It was the best Jack Daniels yet.
Great story. Great reading except the leading lady. Why oh why did you express her with a man's voice. Not only was it annoying but was quite distracting from the story line.
Rum Runner includes more dude humor than I prefer in my badass heroine novels, but it's good, and Bob Walkenhorst is a great narrator. I am SO tired of having Siri read to me. This is real, and W. is best when he's Jackie - that's the most important job. Hitchcock moment: Konrath is annoyingly believable in his part.
