From the Publisher
Cleverly combining humor with suspense, this entertaining debut novel--and the first in a new series--introduces Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels, whose train-wreck life is upset even more by the hunt for a serial killer

This is the debut novel of J. A. Konrath. It is a wonderful mystery with a twist of humour. Jacqueline (Jack) Daniels is a police lieutenant whose personal life is a mess. She is on the case of a sadistic torturer and murderer who has her in his sights. This murderer makes those who love 'sick shit' very happy. Jack, an insomniac is joined by her food loving partner, a PI and former partner out for the glory and 2 FBI agents who must be named Dweedle Dum and Dweedle Dee. How are all the murders connected? Can Jack stop them?

Konrath had me laughing out loud and then on the edge of my seat wondering if Jack would make it. I will be going straight to my wishlist to add some more books

Journal Entry 4 by HoserLauren from Burlington, Ontario Canada on Thursday, July 19, 2007
Never judge a book by its cover. Everything about this book is deceiving. The cover looks like it's going to be a cozy mystery or at the very least something very Janet Evanovich-like. The name of the quirky character (Jack Daniels) makes you think it's going to be a fun mystery. But when you start reading, it's some serious sick shit. The murderer rapes, kills, maims, stabs, shoots, and anything else gross you could possibly think of.
But still, there is a bit of a Stephanie Plum type feel to the book. The characters play off each other very well and there are quite a few funny moments in the book. Jack is an actual professional though so she knows what she is doing and doesn't blunder through life like Plum does.
Without the play on words and the chemistry between the characters, this book would be just average. But because there is that extra something, it turns out to be quite a good book.
There are three more books in this series. I'm quite interested to see where Lunch Mates (the dating service) takes Jack, as well as reading about her fun relationship with her partner on the force. Who knows, maybe she'll even get a promotion!

I don't envy Jack her life but it was an OK bit of police detective fiction, if quite far-fetched.
