Review 1: Whiskey Sour – Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries Book 1 audiobook by Kari

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.

Review 2: Whiskey Sour – Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries Book 1 audiobook by Ruth B.

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.

Review 3: Whiskey Sour – Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries Book 1 audiobook by Pam W

Fun group of characters (the ‘good guys’ that is)

I first listened to “Shaken” which keeps flashing back in Jack Daniels life. It really sparked an interest to know more about these characters and their history, so I went back to this book and started the series. Jack and company are an interesting and colorful lot, with many little humorous quirks that makes the story so interesting.
The Gingerbread man is a creepy soul that really puts the suspense into the story and catching him is the whole plot, but the character development from the supporting cast is why I will go forward with these books.
