I know I had promised to review Afraid by Killborn but I thought it only right to finish the Jack Daniels series since I have kind of jumped around in this series.

So I am reviewing Dirty Martini by J.A. Konrath.
In this book jack finds herself dealing with an unknown killer who prefers to dose food with deadly diseases and chemicals.
She gets the first call just as her boyfriend has popped the question. Talk about bad timing on the killers part.
Also she finds out the her partners transfer she hadn’t known about went through. To top it off while in a cleaning rage she finds a letter meant for her when her mother thought she was going to die. Jack finds out her father isn’t really dead and that he up and left her mom and her.
We have some pretty heavy personal stuff going on amongst this crazed killer with a jet injector armed with some of the deadliest chemicals knows to man.
Just another day for Det. Jack Daniels.

That’s it for now. Be sure to check out this book and the whole series so far I am hooked.
Till next time when I will be reviewing Fuzzy Navel by J.A. Konrath.

Review for With A Twist by J.A. Knorath

Posted in Book Reviews, reviews with tags , , , on January 8, 2013 by firequeen3

This particular book by J.A. Konrath is a short story but still follows one of his most beloved heroines. Jack Daniels.
What made this short story stand out to me is that Mr. Konrath wastes no time pulling his readers into this puzzler of a story.
The basis is that Lt. Daniels and her partner herb have come to the scene of an apparent suicide?murder? The victim apparently took a fall from great heights but he is face down in his living room.
The scene is consistent with a fall from great heights except for the fact that the victim is in his own living room. Begging the question did he commit suicide and have help or was he murdered and was the scene in the house staged?

I highly recommend this book to anyone even if you are not an avid Konrath reader.
Will be back soon with another book I have read while I have been away.
