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!

If you could sum up Stirred in three words, what would they be?
What other book might you compare Stirred to and why?
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.

I did enjoy this book. I have teenage kids myself and adolescent humour can be quite engaging. Crouch and Konrath must have had a hell of a laugh writing this. It's a horror comedy and certainly not the quality genre that Crouch has developed in recent books such as Dark Matter. It's stupid, ridiculous , laughable, sickly gory , not worthy of pulp. Has this actually made it into print? The pace of the stupidity is unrelenting and I frequently thought whilst reading on kindle / listening on audible that I need a break from crime altogether and return to gentle warm classics. There's even a Skooby-Doo moment "if it wasn't for you blasted kids ...." I believe Crouch collaboration books are detrimental to his career and he shouldn't advertise them in his solo Ebooks. They might have got him started but now leave them firmly in the past. He's no longer an adolescent so he needs to stop writing like one. Read the book enjoy it for what it was. You'll laugh out loud.
