Publisher's Summary

Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels of the Chicago Police Department is back, and once again she's up to her Armani in murder. Someone is sending Jack snuff videos. The victims are people she knows, and they share a common trait—all were involved in one of Jack's previous cases. With her stalwart partner, Herb, hospitalized and unable to help, Jack follows a trail of death throughout the Midwest, on a collision course with the smartest and deadliest adversary she has ever known.

During the chase, Jack jeopardizes her career, her love life, and her closest friends. She also comes to a startling realization—serial killers have families, and blood runs thick.

Rusty Nail features more of the laugh-out-loud humor and crazy characters that saturated Whiskey Sour and Bloody Mary, without sacrificing the nail-biting thrills. This is Lt. Jack Daniels' third, and most exciting, adventure yet.

Crack another case with Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels.

What the Critics Say

    "Not for the squeamish"

    This has to be the funnest and grossest book in the series. I was howling when the rat ate McGlade's favorite chopped off finger (middle one of course)! Do not buy the series if you are looking for a good mystery or true to life story line. These books are full of silly puns, unbelievable stories and will make you laugh and grossed out at the same time.
    Sample the narrators first,but I love the voices of Susie and Dick. I can't get enough of the series.

    "Gorey Fun"

    ‘Rusty Nail’ is another great addition to the Jack Daniels Series. The book is a good mix of action and plot development but isn’t for the faint of heart as it has a lot of gratuitous violence. The characters are interesting and fun and make for an interesting story (although I figured out who the killer was about half way through). The writing is good just make sure you don’t read it over your morning cereal!

    Having two narrators is great and really helps bring the story to life. Both narrators do a superb job!

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

    "Nasty Goodness!! The Series Just Gets Better!"
    Where does Rusty Nail rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Every book in the series is better than the last. The characters and their relationships continue to evolve. The plots keep you guessing until the end, I also like that Konrath doesn't add in too many new characters and I appreciate that. I find that some authors write too many new characters in and the book loses its cohesiveness. It can be confusing but Konrath keeps a laser focus on what matters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rusty Nail?

    The cat of course, so great!! Also, the killer. I can't say more, I don't want to spoil anything.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any of the cat scenes were great! The final fight scene was also awesome! Oh yeah the cat was there too.


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

    I hate this question. I'd rather let the author figure this out.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Book, Great Series!!! Highly Recommended!!

    "Not for those with a weak stomach"

    Gore ... If you enjoy a lot of gore, you will love this story. It is a good mystery, and the readers are fine. Just when you think it cannot get worse, you get hit with an even more gory sequence.

    "Too Graphic"

    I have enjoyed the other Jack Daniels books, but with each one they become more disturbingly graphic. The torture in this book is so disgusting that I couldn't listen to it. I finally gave up as the book was troubling me. I deleted it and I won't be buying anymore of Konrath's books.

    "Couldn't Get Past the Narration"

    I love this author and his work, but as a lifetime Chicagoan, the narration was unbearable! Why not just get somebody from Chicago to narrate, rather than put on a very incorrect and exaggerated "accent" to represent the characters? I had to download the printed version of the book onto my Nook, couldn't bear listening.

    "I absolutely love this series."

    J.A. Konrath is witty amd clever. The story line was thrilling andI love the characters. I have trouble turning off Konrath's audiobooks. The writing is fantastic but I'm thoroughly amused by the narrators, Susie and Dick. I love how they interact and turn the whole thing into a show. I can't get enough! I would say this series wouldn't be the same without them!

    "OK until end"

    Author performed silly monologue at the end which degraded an already mediocre book. Female narration was irritating at times.

    "Too gruesome"
    Any additional comments?

    There seems to be a competition to see who can write the most gruesome murder and torture scenes. It would have been better if it had been toned down a bit. Gruesome does not equal exciting.
