Publisher's Summary

In Whiskey Sour, Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels hunted down a killer dubbed "The Gingerbread Man."

In Bloody Mary, she busted a psychopath with a penchant for dismemberment.

In Rusty Nail, it was a serial killer with a doozy of a family tree.

And now, in Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who's poisoning the city's food supply. But that's just the start of what he has planned, because he's aiming to kill fifty thousand people in the single biggest act of terrorism the US has ever seen. Can she stop him—and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal—without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?

Join Jack, her partner Herb, and her nemesis Harry McGlade, for her fourth, and greatest, case so far.

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 . . .

    I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.

    "still loving it"

    I'm still in love with this series! The author is so clever and the narrators, husband and wife, are sooooooooo good at what they do. Each book has been so entertaining, like the old radio stories. I can't get enough. The story lines are intriguing and developing too, next please!

    "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.

    "Excessive violence"

    The story is very good yet too violent for my taste. I enjoy the comedy which is balanced against the violent aspects. I enjoy the development of the main character through the series. Her inner dialogue is also a highlight of the series. The character of her former partner is unnecessarily crude.

    "Great Detective Series"

    I highly recommend this detective series. I am looking forward to reading the extra books you can get based on the characters in this series. After reading a lot of reviews there were a lot of complaints concerning the amount of violence. I actually think it makes for a more exciting book in this series but I don't always think that way. I do like that the books are not based around sex or sex scenes. Although they all have some romance and personal relationships and friendships. I really like that all the characters stay true to their intended personalities throughout the series of books. I highly recommend reading in order although it is not necessary but I feel it does make for more enjoyable experience. It is interesting that I feel the writer trying new things and growing in his writing as the series develop. Also you must try the audible version! The same actors play the characters throughout the series, keeping to the same voices for each character doing a incredibly good job for a audiobook. Some audiobooks I end up not listening to because of the bad job some readers do along with fake accents, forgetting which character has which voice, mispronounciation, awful sound affects, loud music, etc. I do notice audible (and the audio on kindle books) does a good job(so far). I like that they don't try to add "sound effects" and music etc. throughout books. Especially as someone who has noise deafness because that make it hard to listen to books.
