Publisher's Summary

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 two hundred 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 twenty-five 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.

    "Enjoyed the way this book was read"

    I liked the story but the narration is what sold the book. Why companies do not have all books narrated in this manner is beyond me. I am running out of books to listen to.

    Story
    "Killer vs Cop"
    Where does Shaken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good.


    What other book might you compare Shaken to and why?

    None that I have listened. It is a serial killer story with some unique twists. The cop and killer are followed through her life and career. Although we see the killer off and on or at least his handy work, but it is the very end before we get the real picture. No more without spoiling the book.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe and Dick Hill ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I have only listened to a couple of multi narrator books. My usual complaint, if I have one, is that the narrator--male or female--has problems expressing the opposite sex. This time with a male and female that was not an issue. I did enjoy the dual roles.


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

    Real evil.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent story. It was often dark and vicious, however the cops managed to remain professional and often snarky to keep the demons at bay. There were times I really liked the bouncing back and forth between time lines, and others I wish the story had been straight beginning to end. The deepest characterization was for Jac Daniels, however we see the loyalty and deep seeded feelings for all the men in her life between her and them for her.

    I would strongly recommend this for people who enjoy really vicious serial killers. NOT for the feint of heart.

    I liked the storyline, but the new narrator threw me off a bit in the beginning.

    Story
    "Confusing, repeated content and narration change"

    This book was an uphill battle for me from the beginning. (If I could give half stars it'd be a 2 1/2 - didn't *hate* it - it's better than a 2, but not really on the fence about it either ... it is less than a 3 for me.)

    First - it is never easy to adjust to a new narrator well into an established series. It helped to have Dick Hill continuing with many of the established supporting characters. Angela Dawe did a great job, but having Susie Breck's voice firmly established in my head as the voice of Jack made it quite difficult to adjust to Angela Dawe's somewhat softer voiced approach to the character.

    Second - I was hopeful about seeing some of Jack's progress and "redemption" after the ending of Cherry Bomb. While this book does technically take place after Cherry Bomb, the format of jumping around within Jack's timeline makes it less than satisfying in this regard. It jumps around A LOT and at least in audio book format it is quite confusing to keep track of when and where we are in the story.

    In addition, it feels like ever serial killer in the Konrath world is a mash-up of every real world serial killer out there. First with the Cork family and now with Mr K. Right off the bat in this book I was seeing echoes of the same horrifying bits of violence and MO as has been used previously in the series. No unique signatures or obsessions from killer to killer - just a grab bag of what things seem the scariest and most horrifying thrown into each story.

    It also felt like this book was a way to polish up/revise some of Jack's back story and history, perhaps with the intention of redirecting her for future stories. Between the polishing, the jumps in time and the change in narrator, it didn't really feel like I was reading a JD book.

    In reading other reviews it seems that folks new to Konrath and Jack Daniels seemed to enjoy it, but fans of the series not so much.

    Story
    "Must Have a Strong Stomach"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This was a good story and I liked the past and present day descriptions. These gave this 6 hr listen some depth to the characters without having to have listened to the entire series. Read reviews before purchasing just because you like the readers. I have the A.D. read, Chandler series which was excellent and not goring as this character/series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Harry as he knows no bounds of "it can't get done". I love his revenge in the prison! Bring IT!


    Have you listened to any of Angela Dawe and Dick Hill ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love A.D. and D. H. both are great readers which was why I purchased this book. Too bad this lacked the humor the other reviewers listed.


    Was Shaken worth the listening time?

    No more of this author for me even if I love the readers! My stomach is too weak


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to buy Tequila story, but the reviews say too gory!

    Story
    "JACK DANIELS MEETS MR. K"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shaken to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it was entertaining and easy to follow.


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

    Yes, it was engrossing.


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

    Yes. They did a great job of bringing the story to life.


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

    Yes, but unfortunately I didn't have the time.
