Publisher's Summary

Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels has seen humanity at its most depraved and terrifying. She's lost loved ones. Come close to death countless times. But she always manages to triumph over evil. Luther Kite is humanity at its most depraved and terrifying. He's committed unthinkable acts. Taken human life for the sheer pleasure of it. He is a monster among monsters, and no one has ever caught him. Each is the best at what they do. Peerless. Unmatched.
Until now...
In Luther's experience, people are weak. Even the strong and fearless break too easily. He wants a challenge, and sets his depraved sights on Jack. But with a baby on the way, Jack is at her most vulnerable. She's always been a fighter, but she's never had so much to fight for. So he's built something especially for Jack. His own, private ninth circle of hell—a nightmare world in a forgotten place, from which no one has ever escaped.
It's J.A. Konrath's greatest heroine versus Blake Crouch's greatest villain in Stirred, the stunning conclusion to both Konrath's Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels thriller series and Crouch's Andrew Z. Thomas series.
Only one can survive. And it won't be whom you think.

A good ending to the series

If you've already reached this book, then you have been reading the Jack Daniels book series for a while and finally, eventually, reached the end. If so, then just do it, buy the book. You want to know what happens, where it ends and who survives. This is a brutal thriller that finalizes all the characters and their stories.

If you're new to the series you don't want to start at the end, I don't think. The book assumes knowledge of the rest of series. Also, this book continues where Shaken leaves off. It's rough to read, very graphic and violent. But this series needs to end with a villain worthy of Jack and the rest of the killers she's come up against.

If you've made it here, then buy it, it's a good (but not spectacular) end to a very fun series. If you're new to the series, it starts with Whiskey Sour and is a very good collection of books. I loved them. Get involved and have fun!

Dante's Hell Visited in Excruciating Details

If you could sum up Stirred in three words, what would they be?

Bloody.
Cold.
Intense.


What other book might you compare Stirred to and why?

Dante's Inferno


What does Angela Dawe and Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I waded through all the blood because they made it easy enough to do so. Had I been reading rather than listening, I probably wouldn't have picked it up after the first break I took.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Why not take a bloody romp through Dante's Inferno?


Any additional comments?

Calling all sadists. This is the book for you.

The antagonists were drawn with a finer brush than the protagonists...more 'fleshed out' and complete. More motivated. I tired of all the heroine's pregnancy problems, especially since she didn't seem to have an iota of common sense.

There were a few clever/humorous lines I enjoyed.

Mostly I'm just glad the book is over, even if the story isn't.
