Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A pair of gifted, award-winning readers make the audio version of Konrath's fourth mystery to feature Lt. Jack Daniels a rare, funny and very exciting listening experience. While Jack (short for Jacqueline) copes with problems in her private life, a really scary terrorist who calls himself the Chemist is literally holding the city of Chicago for ransom, demanding a huge payoff to stop injecting deadly toxins into food, drugs, even children's sandals. Many people have already died, and the Chemist seems to have something even more vicious in mind. Dick Hill catches the slightly edgy but never over-the-top killer perfectly, the kind of ordinary lunatic who might go unnoticed on the street. Susie Breck creates a perfect Jack Daniels by mixing wry wit, drink recipes and growing apprehension to capture just the right taste for mystery connoisseurs.

From Booklist

Chicago homicide cop Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels returns in this hard-edged thriller. Someone who calls himself the Chemist is poisoning food in the city's grocery stores and restaurants. When the Chemist demands $2 million to stop the killings, the superintendent of detectives puts Jack in charge of the case—because fast-talking Jack has plenty of experience dealing with serial killers, having gone up against three of them already (most recently in Rusty Nail, 2006). Like Jeffrey Deaver, Konrath ratchets up the suspense until readers don't dare stop flipping the pages; the characters are sharply drawn; and the dialogue sounds like real (though funny) people talking (a decided improvement over some of the earlier volumes in the series). Also like Deaver, Konrath clearly understands the importance of creating a believable, interesting villain. A solid success for those who like to mix comedy and grit. Pitt, David

Have said it before and I'll say it again, If Whiskey Sour, Bloody Mary, and Rusty Nail are on your favorites list, add one more - Dirty Martini. The fourth in Konrath's series featuring Chicago policewoman J. A. "Jack" Daniels is another thriller laced with laughter and rich in outre characters.

No question that narrators Susie Breck and Dick Hill are on the favorites list of audio book listeners. They're among the best voice performers working today, and they enliven Dirty Martini with perceptive readings delivered with gusto just as they did with Rusty Nail.

Jack faces the toughest challenge of her career with a loony killer on the loose. He calls himself The Chemist. Crazy man? Yes, but smart ? indeed. He's spreading a deadly toxin throughout Chicago - 30 dead so far. And no one has a clue because he's in disguise.

He prepares well for his deadly errands - false moustache, phony shoulder length hair, clip-on body jewelry, even three inch lifts in his shoes. How does he spread his evil in grocery stores, restaurants? With the help of a tube hidden by his long sleeves.

Jack is assigned to the case. As if finding this sociopath isn't enough, her partner wants a transfer and pretty soon Latham, Jack's love interest, is found unconscious on the floor of their apartment after bringing home a sack of toxin loaded take-out. The Chemist is too close for comfort, and Jack knows that better than anyone else.

Now, how do you write a page turner with an ascending body count and work in healthy doses of humor? Whatever the trick is J.A. Konrath knows it well.

Topnotch tale and first-rate narration. Don't miss it!

I enjoyed the book, it moved along quickly. The story line was plausible. Some of the characters were a little too cheesy. Some parts could have been developed more while others left put. Not my favourite story.

While the book subject is not funny...everything else is. The dialogue is very funny...laughing out loud funny. Jack Daniels is once again at her best. Can't wait to continue the series.

Moves along quite well; maintains interest. Perhaps reaching the end of her saga. Fourteen

Book 4, in the “Jack” Daniels Mystery series

I am fast becoming a huge fan of this series. As in the previous novels, the story unfolds at a good clip, kept me on the edge of my seat with nail biting action, subtle suspense and a page turning thrill ride till the very last page. If you haven’t read the previous installments no need to worry, you will not get lost in the back story the little there is is well balanced to put everyone at easy and be comfortable with the characters and their interaction.

As far as I can see each story focuses on the moment rather than continuing in an episodic storytelling style. The pacing is fast, steady and never slows down. No breathing space between the hectic episodes. This is one heck of a story expertly plotted and wonderfully told. Jack’s story is told in the first person and glimpses into the villain through a third-person present tense narrative. Mr. Konrath writes the perfect bad guys, who are fun to hate and Jack is a perfect blend of tough and soft. Her partner Herb and her nemesis Harry McGlade join her in this fourth and greatest case….so far.

This is one freaky and shocking story and here is the synopsis:

Chicago homicide detective “Jack” Daniels faces her toughest adversary yet: someone who calls himself the Chemist is poisoning the city’s food supply. But that’s just the start of what he has planned, something big-really big aiming to kill fifty thousand people in the single biggest act of terrorism the US has ever seen. Can Jack stop him — and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham’s surprise proposal — without destroying her reputation, her sanity and everything she holds dear?”
