Format: Hardcover
this is the third novel in the jack daniels series. things are not good for our jack since we left her. mother in a coma, no boyfriend and her job may be on shaky ground. an old case comes back to haunt jack and this time she needs to put it to rest, lots of red herrings and when it finally is all revealed it feels like all the clues were there to see. kinda had a feeling who the killer was but it still came as a surprise.

great energy, kept me turning those pages, some gory moments not for the faint hearted. loving jack as i feel she has grown as a person since whiskey sour.

This is his third book in the series of "Jack (Jackeline) Daniels and her side kick Herb as they try to find another gruesome killer. It reflects back to "The Gingerbread Man" killings, so reading the first two books would add flesh to bones so to speak. JA Kowrath leaves enough clues throughout the book to keep anyone engaged, its punchy with hilarious dialect and the way he describes scenes are bloody gruesome in areas. Jack is sent a video in the post, a rather disturbing one, add to that a jar of pickled toes and the first scene is painted for you.
The clues throught the book keeps the reader guessing, add to that the crackerjack ending hence it has 4 stars. Would recommend this to friends, (ones with iron stomachs, as when he writes dark, he writes Dark, so be warned). Will be reading his other works as I want to follow more of Jack Daniels! Shes not an indestructable hero type,she gets her backside kicked quite a few times, its her bulldog tenacity that keeps her ticking along. Add to that the rather dark gruesome murders (fishing hooks...ohh why fishing hooks!) keeps even the most macarbe reader hooked....(could not resist the pun)

Book 3, in the Jack Daniels Mystery

This is a direct sequel to “Bloody Mary” it starts where the plots left off with the investigation into a cult that practices mutilation and posts them as snuff films.

It is evident right from the start that this would have a gory story with plenty of graphic details and enough creepiness to let our imagination do its work. There is enough horror described here to turn our stomach but thank goodness for the cleverness in the way Mr. Konrath has melded humor into the gore. The style is by far not for everyone the author has no fear of detailing death and torture and showing how sick murderers are and how they enjoy what they doing. This story seems to want to outdo the previous one in its depravity. As in the previous books, the story alternates between the first person narrative by Jack and the third person present tense from the view of the killer. There is a lot of action and much happens with the various characters in just a few pages. Konrath found his true formula with a strong no nonsense female lead character, clever narration, short scenes and fast-paced story…….and a wacko cat….

Jack's personal life continues to be a mess. Her mother is still in a coma. Latham and Jack have split up. Mr. Friskers the cat is still psychotic.

If you in the right mood you will appreciate this novel for what it is.…..entertainment..

One in a series featuring Jack Daniels, hard bitten Chicago cop. This one has her pursuing a family of serial killers. The police procedure and the human insights are all very believable - you could be reading an erudite cop's personal thoughts. The crime of the book though, not so much. Lots of twists and turns, and frankly not very credible. If there really was such a family, they would have been killing each other rather than teaming up to torture strangers to death. The author apologises for the gore in the foreword, but presumably there is a market for this.

If You like Your Heroines tough and Your drinks stiff, mix Yourself a triple Rusty Nail - A Thriller (Jack Daniels Mysteries) - ( or take the threesome: Jack Daniels Series - Three Thriller Novels (Whiskey Sour #1, Bloody Mary #2, Rusty Nail #3) ) - recipe always at the beginning of the thriller - and start with a new series.

And yet better if You like Jack Daniels - because that's the name of our more than tough, forty-something protagonist, Lieutenant in the Chicago Homicide Squad.
Had been there, seen it all, caught a lot more...

And this is the third thriller of a series that reached his (momentary) height with Stirred (Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels/Luther Kite Thriller) where a Super Serial Killer meets our - quasi - indistructable and beloved Detective...
But that's an entirely different story...
This time Our Lieutenant has to hunt not only one - no, a whole bunch of some nice human (?) beings who hunt, torture, and kill everyone that has to do with the death of the "Gingerbread Man". That infamous serial killer of young women from the first Whiskey Sour - A Thriller (Jack Daniels Mysteries) stopped by our Jack...
