Chicago cop Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels has chased and caught dozens of dangerous criminals over the course of her career. But she’s about to meet her match.
When Jack wakes up in a storage locker, bound and gagged, she knows with chilling certainty who her abductor is.
He’s called “Mr. K”, and more than 200 homicides have been attributed to him. His victims have died in the most horrible ways imaginable; he is the essence of evil. Some think he’s just an urban legend, but he’s very, very real. Jack has tangled with him twice in the past, and both times he managed to slip away.
Now Jack will finally have the chance to confront the maniac she’s been hunting for over 25 years. Unfortunately, it won’t be on her terms. In less than two hours, Mr. K is going to do to Jack what he’s done to countless others. And Jack is going to learn that sometimes the good guys don’t win....
Crack another case with Jack.

I started listening to this and couldn't get very far into the book so it's not fair for me to rate the story...although it did seem very gory....but what I couldn't stand was the male narrator. He slurred his words and sounded like he was drunk and it was so distracting I couldn't get past it. The female narrator was fine but I just couldn't stick with the story because of the male.
I just got this because it was narrated by Dick Hill, but in all honesty it was too gorey for me, at time's it was interesting, but too graphic. I did finish listening to it, just because I wanted to know the ending....I guess you can say it was worth the price, if you like book's like that....
for 5 years has driven 180 miles round trip daily. That is a ton of listening time!
Yes only to continue the series. This book is unlike the rest of the JD books for me. Constant jumping around made it hard to keep up with. First you are in her rookie year, to present day, to 10 years ago. Too much jumping.
unexpected ending but disappointing story
Like all the others, this Jack Daniels mystery has equal parts of intrigue and humor. More than once I had to back up the story because I'd been laughing too loud to hear.
Love Dick Hill's Chicago accents.
To me, this was like half of a book, a setup for the next one, I hope that it is good because there will have to be a lot of raving reviews to get me to give up a credit for it.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
This is truly a gem...There were moments of laughter, suspense, terror and tears. This book I immediately wanted to listen to again. Three stories full of action, suspense and gutwrenching fear told by 2 fabulous narrators. Dick Hill deserves an Oscar and Angela Dawe is not so shabby herself. As a reader of books I would never have even looked this books way but as a member of audible I have easy access to so much more and I am so glad I chose this book.
I would not say time well-spent. The story line was good. However, bouncing back and forth in time nearly drove me insane. I would rather have read the background and moved into the present. Had I realized how violent it was I probably would not have started it.
I will try one but if it is bouncing like a ball it is going down.
Angela sounded really sincere. Dick did well considering he had so many characters to deal with.
Good Lord No! Watching that kind of violence would absolutely terrorize me. This is a book of horrors.
