2nd book into the Jack Daniels, first one being "Whiskey Sour". Jackeline Daniels is a Detective, together with her Partner Herb must solve a murder case which starts with two arms being found in the Police Morgue, extra arms that is...one with Jack Daniels cuffs still on. Jack and Herb must piece together the bits and find whom is responsible. Jack not only has to deal with her Partner Herb, who is having a midlife crisis, her mother becoming frail, her boyfriend wanting more but her X Hubby turns up, just to complicate matters...as well as solve the case and bang up the the Psychopath involved. No guessing who it is, as I guessed early on, its not the catching part that was fascinating, but the banter between her trying to keep a lid on everything that is going on around her I found intriguing.
The author just keeps adding things into this book to keep the reader glued to each page, for example, the demonic cat who hates and claws and bites everything! Jack somehow manages to juggle them in a variety of ways. I liked the way the author ties up the missing pieces at the end of the book, leaving a fresh page for book 3. 4 Stars again! ty nice read, well balanced out. (Contains Gore Scenes....its not all roses!)

This is the first Jack Daniels mystery that I read and I loved it.

The dialogue between Jack Daniels and her partner Herb is a scream. Herb and Jack are great friends and never let Herb's incessant supplier of donuts and mexican food get between them. This is a rollicking ride as they hunt a twisted killer and finally nab the bad guy. Lots of fun and a darn good read.

A fun read with a bit of twisted psychopathy thrown in. Fans of Jack Kerley and Janet Evanovich will love this murder mystery

I love Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels, our main character, not some feeble flighty indecisive woman or over-the-top male wannabe with a miserable life, but a strong woman without being masculine, and smart too. Along with her partner Herb with whom they bicker regularly creating priceless dialogue throughout the story, they try to solve a murder case where there are more body parts than there should be, in particular the two 'spare' arms complete with handcuffs on the wrists; handcuffs that actually belong to Jack. How could that be? This serial killer is twisted and targeting Jack in the most alarming way. Worst still, he's a rogue policeman so he always seems to be one step ahead, knowing the ropes and how not to get caught. It's a race against time to try and catch him....but once he's caught, that's not the end of the tale not by a long chalk.

This is superb writing, humorous in places, and definitely the proverbial page-turner, hard to put down, and disappointing to finish. I'm madly looking for my next fix from J A Konrath, this being so very enjoyable and loving the fact that there are more in the series. I started off inadvertently with Book 2 and I'll happily read everything this author wrote given the writing style, the suspense and the twists. I loved the way the despised cat Mr Friskers became an integral part of the story so smoothly. I also appreciated the way the characters were developed with background, relatives, friends and their quirks and habits (Jack's mother's lover was on good form I have to say ...for a senior citizen. (Sorry I didn't mean that as a spoiler but a hint at certain shennanigans that will also amuse) that made the reading all the more enjoyable while keeping you practically biting your nails till the last page, and the way I read it I would have sworn the author was a woman. J A Konrath is my new favourite writer and a very accomplished author.

The very high body count in this book drops it from a 5 star to a 4 star. I did wonder halfway through whether the story was about to end early, with a substantial chunk of the next book being included, but there is a twist to give the story another lease of life.

I am not a great fan of mixing humour with thrillers, but the cat was a star, and watch out for the insatiable Mr Griffin.

Pretty fast paced and good plot. Perhaps a bit more violence than some will like and some very graphic descriptions. Would have been better if the 'free taster' had been the first book in the series; each might be fine as a standalone read, but characters do develop over the course of a series.

Book 2, in the Jack Daniels Mysteries

No denying J.A. Konrath produces gruesome material, even if he may say otherwise in his introduction. This second installment is a mystery with a creepy take and a view on the dark side of funeral homes. Relying on subtlety and imagination this latest concerns a mysterious killer who murders women to suppress his recurring headaches and hatches plans to pin the murders on a Chicago cop.

This sequel has a great story line and starts during a sweltering Chicago summer, a pair of arms is discovered at the morgue and the rest of the body is missing… this little problem brings Jack and her partner Herb on the scene to investigate.

It is pleasantly nice to see the recurring characters first introduced in “Whiskey Sour” returning in tip-top shape even if we find them in the midst of personal struggles this time. It is fun to follow Jack as each crime scene seems to be connected to her in some way….I found the plot line quite suspenseful even if we know fairly early the identity of the killer but what make this deferent is not the who did it but the uncertainty of how or when he will strike again. This quick read has a lot of action and gratuitous gore and managed to have kept my attention till the last page. Although, it may be the standard style found in most thriller of this genre I nevertheless like the wits and the snappy dialogue that peppered the pages. Mr. Friskers’ antics give us some really good laughs along the way I couldn't help but to giggle….Quite entertaining, I am looking forward to the sequel.
