Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels is having a bad week. Her live-in boyfriend has left her for his personal trainer, chronic insomnia has caused her to max out her credit cards with late-night home shopping purchases, and a frightening killer who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" is dumping mutilated bodies in her district.
While avoiding the FBI and its moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Jack and her binge-eating partner, Herb, must catch the maniac before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list.
Whiskey Sour is the first book in the bestselling Jack Daniels series, full of laugh-out-loud humor and edge-of-your-seat suspense.


What the Critics Say

Dual voices add considerable interest to this debut novel....The production's conversations sound more like those of a radio play than a reading, and one gets the feeling that both actors are having fun. This is a fine series opener." (AudioFile)

Like the book but GRAPHIC details

This is book one in a series about a detective named Jack Daniels (female) who works in the homicide unit of the Chicago Police Force. Some of the chapters are written from the point of view of Jack and then others from the point of view of the serial killer.

Jack has a partner named Herb who provides some comic relief. The two main characters are likable and I enjoyed the story but the details of the serial murders are VERY GRAPHIC. Before I downloaded the book I had read that in reviews and thought I had heard it all as I have watched shows like Criminal Minds, CSI etc and read some true crime novels but this truly tops those by far. I was listening to this in my car on the way home one night and found myself saying OMG more than once. When I got home I got freaked out just walking by my closet in the dark (if you have read the book you will understand this).
It makes me wonder what goes on in the mind of the author that he comes up with the murder details that he does - if I was his wife I might be concerned...
So if you are a little squeamish about some of the things you have seen on tv or movies you might want to think twice before downloading.

If you like Evonavich you will like this series.

This is the first book in the series and I am hooked! After listening to this book, I purchased the whole set.

I like that Jack(Jackie)Daniels is a little older and wiser. She is a 50 something cop with many years under her belt yet can get into some interesting situations.

The narrator dose a good job with the different voices and is easy to listen to.
