Publisher's Summary

JA Konrath is the author of the Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels mysteries, Whiskey Sour, Bloody Mary, Rusty Nail, Dirty Martini, Fuzzy Navel, and Cherry Bomb. Daniels is a Chicago homicide cop with a wicked sense of humor, and the novels fluctuate between funny business and serious suspense.

Tom Schreck is the author of the Duffy Dombrowski mysteries, On the Ropes, TKO, and Out Cold. Duffy is a social worker by day and a semi-pro boxer by night, and he's quick with a left hook as he is with his wit.

Planter's Punch is a 7500 word novella that features both Jack Daniels and Duffy Dombrowski.

Both Schreck and Konrath write funny, laugh out-loud mysteries without skimping on the action and suspense.

Kirkus calls Duffy, "Warmhearted, tough, and funny" and Crimespree Magazine raves, "In the boxing match of life I want Duffy Dombrowski as my ring man."

Booklist calls the Jack Daniels series, "A solid success for those who like to mix comedy and grit" and Library Journal calls Konrath, "Not to be missed."

Great story that is read well.

Would you consider the audio edition of Planter's Punch to be better than the print version?

Not better than the print version, but well read to capture the way the story was written with two distinctive voices of the two character narrators. I don't often like audio books, because the reader doesn't always capture the voice of the character the way I hear it in my head when I have read the story. But these two readers did an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the characters in their reading interpretations. They should be used for all Duffy and Jack Daniels books in their respective series.

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

Yes, it is an interesting and fun story. It captures the unique spirit of each of the two series based on these two rich and appealing characters.

Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe and Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

It's a toss-up because they each did well at their interpretations of characters during their narratives.

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

yes, since it is a short story.

Any additional comments?

I am very pleased and impressed with this version of one of my favorite stories that contains two of my favorite characters.
