    I finished this a couple of days ago and am just now getting around to reviewing it In many ways I d like to give the book than 3 stars I like the writing overall and the characters are easy to get to know and have a real folks feel that I think can sell a book or series.Unfortunately there are a few problems with the book that bug me personally The biggest and worst for me of these are the extremely graphic murder scenes from the point of view of the killer I don t believe this is a spoiler as [...]

    Whisky Sour by J.A Konrath is the first in the series For Lieutenant Jack Daniels AKA Jacqueline I really enjoyed this read Jack is a really well written character, loved her spunk but she is married to her job the series is set in Chicago Her partner Detective Herb Benedict was also well written had a bit of a quirky humour about him, but is dedicated to his job.The plot had me from the get go The Gingerbread Man was a well crafted villain who I liked even though he was one evil sadistic SOB Mr [...]

    This book was just okay I liked the slightly humorous dialogue between Jack and her partner, Herb I liked that Herb seemed to care about Jack I liked Jack shooting pool with Phin, and her experience with Lunch Mates There are descriptive violent crimes that might bother some readers, but the killer was truly despicable Unless a woman is built like Brienne in Game of Thrones, there s no way she continues on after beatings like Jack took I didn t like that Herb was pushed into the background as th [...]

    I can t believe I waited so long to start this series This was my kind of book I loved the character of Jack, being both flawed and funny The book was fast paced and easy to read The chapters had an alternating POV which I like and the sections written from the Gingerbread Man were tense and suspenseful I can t wait to read the next book in the series.

    Five Stars for what it is A fine, fast reading hard boiled pulp detective novel starring a tough female cop Jacqueline Jack Daniels is a 40 something Detective Lieutanant in Chicago s Violent Crimes unit She has a hard time with relationships, can t sleep, holds her own in a bar fight, and works herself to the bone Fans of Kinsey Milhone and her compatriots will recognize Jack The supporting cast are a bit cardboard, but that s to be expected You have the goofy FBI agents, the overweight partner [...]

    I gave this 4 stars, although it s probably only a 3 star book It s an entertaining thriller serial killer tracked by Lt Jack Daniels, a cop She s as tough gritty as any I ve read about The action scenes are well done, dialogue is good the plot is ample I gave this book an extra star because I got it for free from Konrath s site jakonrathI think that s a great way to introduce a series I ve already bought the next 2 books they re on their way, so the freebie got the author 2 sales Also, since it [...]

    Book Club Selection for the J.D Robb group.Another wonderful new to me detective discovery I very much like Jack Daniels She s got a great attitude and sense of humor It was an interesting format going back and forth from Jack s to the killer s POV At one point, it was gritty and dark and violent, and, then, we re back to Jack s pov which is at turns detecting and police procedural and then also action and comedy.I can t wait to move on in the books.

    Okay, it was ok The story was pretty good but what bothered me to no end was how, in the last chapters, all the loose ends were so obviously tied up Nothing clever, no back end passes, nothing but straight answers to the questions that lingered And that was too bad because the storyline was just fine, nothing to write home about but much better than what I ve read from nationally known authors The dialog was great, no complaints there at all I m continuing the series based first on the dialog an [...]

    aPriL does feral sometimes
    This is a muscular mystery, Book One in a series There is a huge current of cynical dark humor, and it is omnipresent in most of the characters In my opinion, while it asserts a common tone and is entertaining to read, too many characters possess this single voice The exceptions, the psychopath serial killer and the FBI, have extreme voices as well, so it would be fair to say this writer is not nuanced However, it is not overly graphic, but hello, this is about a crazy sadistic killer of women, [...]

    This is a review of the audiobook Nicely narrated by Susie Breck female voices and Dick Hill male voices I liked this method, as it worked well with the book, since we get the female detective s first person POV and the villain s thoughts The psycho was a little too sick for me, so I skim read some of those chapters instead of listening however, I ll continue with the series Fast listen and well paced It kept me up until the wee hours reading and listening.

    I had shifted the focus from thrillers and after a stuttering start with experimenting with Fantasy books, I came to the conclusion that maybe I should halve my reading time and do other things I mean if the biggest names in the genre were not doing much for me, maybe thrillers or Fantasy are simply not my cup of tea Despite all this, I had a hunch that Whiskey Sour would be a good enough read See, I ve been a visitor to J.A Konrath s blog, and I thought, if he could devote his lampooning and mi [...]

    Whiskey Sour4 StarsLieutenant Jacqueline Jack Daniels yes, yes that s her name , is a seasoned Chicago detective investigating a series of horrific murders of young women committed by a killer calling himself the Gingerbread Man Once Jack takes over the case, the killer becomes obsessed with her and things become a lot personal Beware short rant ahead The only strike against this book is the derisive and dismissive attitude toward the FBI Whether the author likes it or not and he obviously does [...]

    Konrath delivers us a 40 something cop, Jacqueline Jack Daniels Daniels is a Lieutenant in Violent Crimes Unit in Chicago Konrath mentions Chicago landmarks but we never get much of a sense of the city itself Daniels is chasing a nasty serial killer that is into mutilating women and then leaving a present deep inside their bodies The plot inches along and while a few of the characters are interesting, Konrath keeps hitting the same notes and punchlines over and over again There is the overeating [...]

    Enjoyable read From the description, I was expecting something a little lighthearted but this is definitely a heavy murder mystery Fair amount of gore as well, which doesn t bother me in the least, but again, was surprising.I didn t enjoy the constant fat jokes I think we were supposed to take away that Jack was so close with her partner that she could say things like that and they were okay But really it just kind of made the author look like a jackass.Also the Profilers for the FBI were over [...]

    Fear and humor That s what this book mixes Basically, our heroine, Jacqueline Daniels, becomes the target of a sadistic killer after she begins investigating his crimes He goes by the name, The Gingerbread Man, because he leaves clues in the wounds of his victims It s a cat and mouse game but that s not what makes this book interesting Really, it s the witty and snappy dialogue that makes this book a page turner The book balances beautifully between disgusting descriptions and comedic moments wh [...]

    When an author comes up with Jacqueline Jack Daniels as a name for his heroine, your pretty sure your in for some laughs Our mid forties, dedicated cop with her sharp witty comments, down on her luck personal life, only adds to this fast entertaining debut Add in a psychopathic killer that has Jack in his sights, and you get a well mixed thriller.A blurb on the back of the book, states it well Konrath is Hiaasen with teeth I concur Will definitely continue on with this series.

    This is the first book of this series it was good but I ve read them out of order these books really need to be read in order due to the same character in them.

    So glad I read this This series had it all humor, suspenseful and mystery It was a quick read which I enjoy I can t wait to read .

    This is the first book in a series that began in 2004 about a tough female homicide detective You can t tell from the initials but the author is male If I had a choice I would pick a woman to write about a woman detective But I chose this because the cute I thought title has been on my list since I began reading mystery series several years ago and the new Kindle edition is available free on my new Kindle Paperwhite.So I thought I was getting into a fun and fluff summer read Wrong So wrong accor [...]

    I really wish I could give this book 4 stars instead of 3 because it isn t a 3 star book but there are so many items that bothered that I couldn t bring myself to rate it higher Most of this I think rests with the description that got me to want to read the book I felt kind of betrayed by the book This isn t light hearted at all and most of the humor is stupid jokes at the expense of overweight people The main character is my biggest issue and that doesn t bode well for me wanting to continue re [...]

    Jordan Anderson
    I m not usually a fan of the police detective novel Regardless of characters, or plot twists, or writing skills both good and bad , this genre seems to be the same Good cop, dealing with inner demons gets caught up in what seems an unsolvable case only to figure out the killer in the last few chapters of the book.Thankfully, Konrath s Jack Daniels is not your typical cop, nor is Whiskey Sour your typical crime detective novel.Sure there are a few of the aforementioned cliches Daniels has insomni [...]

    Connie (Ava Catherine)
    Although there are a few very graphic, violent scenes in this book, I managed to push past those The main detective, Jack Daniels, is the reason the book is so compelling I like that Jack is mature, independent, flawed, sassy, and stubborn Daniels s character is the reason this book is not just another serial killer detective novel.

    Ctgt
    I really debated between 3 or 4 stars here I loved the main character and the surrounding cast, but I am getting somewhat weary of the serial killer thing I went with four because I really liked the Jack Daniels character You see plenty of middle aged male characters in crime fiction, but not so many females At least, not too many that aren t in some branch of the medical field.
