Publisher's Summary

At the end of Fuzzy Navel, J. A. Konrath surprised listeners with an agonizing cliff-hanger: One of Lieutenant Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels’s loved ones is dead. But who? Listeners were left clamoring to know more.

Cherry Bomb, the sixth Jack Daniels mystery, opens at the funeral. While Jack stands graveside, tears in her eyes, her cell phone rings. It’s the killer, escaped maniac Alex Kork, taunting Jack, drawing her ever further into a twisted game of cat and mouse. Because while Alex is more than willing to kill random victims, Jack is her true prey. But which woman wants revenge more?

Cherry Bomb is J. A. Konrath's most gripping novel of suspense yet—filled with twists and turns that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

"One part murder, two parts mayhem, with a generous splash of humor and garnished with some of the most interesting characters in current fiction." – eBookreporter.com

Crack another case with Jack.

    "Love the series"

    I think the entire Jack Daniels series is great. Good mix of mystery, thriller, and comedy. I don't think I could actually bring myself to read the book because the acting (not reading) of this series by Susie Breck and Dick Hill I think enhance the books tremendously. Their accents are spot on and Dick Hill's characters are hilarious. Good material is important (and Konrath delivers), but jokes delivered badly don't work. But Breck/Hill have impeccable comic timing and I often find myself laughing out loud (thus, I recommend you not listen to this in public, unless you want strange stares from people). If some graphic language and sex descriptions bother you, you might want to pass on this (i.e., not one to play in the car with the kids). I hope the editor whips Konrath to crank out the next in the series.

    "Not impressed"

    The Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels mystery series novels are highly variable in quality. Of the ones I have listened to so far Cherry Bomb is the worst. 2 stars is being very generous. The narration is outstanding.

    "TOO much sex..became unreal"
    Would you try another book from J. A. Konrath and/or Susie Breck and Dick Hill ?

    I would be hesitant to try another book...although Breck and Hill were very good.


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. A. Konrath? Why or why not?

    Again I would be hesitant I think the plot was lost with so many sex scenes.


    Which character – as performed by Susie Breck and Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Jack Daniels she was determined and in the end did a self-evaluation.


    Did Cherry Bomb inspire you to do anything?

    NO!


    Any additional comments?

    I'll wait for more reviews before I purchased another J.A. Konrath.

    "Narrators are terrific!"

    I like the Konrath books (all of them), but I especially like Dick Hill and Susie Breck as narrators. Don't read this book--LISTEN to it. And start with Whiskey Sour if you haven't read any yet.

    "Boy did I learn a lesson"
    What disappointed you about Cherry Bomb?

    First of all never get multiple titles by the same author you've never read before.<br/>I did this with Konrath, at sale price fortunately. As my buying history shows I'm not a prude with my listening. However this book was completely obsessed with sex to the point of total boredom. EVERYTHING was viewed with sex colored glasses. Of the hundreds of books I've listened to this was one of the 3 or 4 I just put down, it was just that boring and useless.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Konrath again?

    Not even the other two in my library.


    What didn’t you like about Susie Breck and Dick Hill ’s performance?

    I won't say anything negative about Breck's performance, I'm sure she does well with better material. Dick Hill doesn't need any critique, he is THE voice. Even with this piece his range and inflection was, as always, spot on.

    "Tons of fun as usual"

    Another great addition to the ‘Jack Daniels’ Series. This book as a ton a gratuitous violence, some great one liners and characters that make the story what it is. I was wrong on my guess of who was killed at the end of Fuzzy Navel which really turned the story. If you’re a fan of the other books in the series this will be a welcome addition to your library.

    The two narrators really make the story great to listen to!

    "this one missed for me"

    Maybe I wasn't in the mood, but this one missed for me. I've enjoyed the other books in this series but this one - not so much.

    Story
    "Horrific and Hilarious!"
    Would you listen to Cherry Bomb again? Why?

    The detailed descriptions of the executions were shocking and made my skin crawl..That's the horrific part. The antics of Harry and his pet monkey were hilarious. I am actually listening to the story for a second time now and am not quite so shocked about the executions but the funny parts (and there are many) are just as funny the second time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cherry Bomb?

    The description of Harry's crime-mobile. Unfortunately I didn't have the print version so I can only guess how to spell Crimabago.


    What does Susie Breck and Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have heard Dick Hill narrate a lot of Jack Reacher stories and he always seems to have a very matter of fact delivery. However in this story he seems more like an actor than a reader. Both Susie Breck and Dick Hill put a lot of emotion into their roles as narrators and this makes the story much more compelling. Great job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Keep your mouth shut and watch your step.

    Story
    "Living"
    Would you listen to Cherry Bomb again? Why?

    Yes. Interesting, non stop action. This psyco was clever and deadly. The story was riviting, the characters unique and the relationships unconventional.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. For all of the above reasons.


    Which character – as performed by Susie Breck and Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Jack and Finn.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually yes. Down with a cold and 11 hours was ok.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my third Jack Daniels read because it was so evil hard to say favorite, however it was.<br/>
