Descriptions du produit

From AudioFile

Dual voices add considerable interest to this debut novel about a female Chicago cop's efforts to track down a serial killer while trying to develop a social life of her own. Susie Breck's take on Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels shows her determination, energy, and self-deprecating humor. Dick Hill does the twisted "Gingerbread Man"; Daniel's partner, who always has his mouth full; and the bumbling FBI agents who insist on helping. 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, with BLOODY MARY and RUSTY NAIL to follow within the year. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

Très bon roman. Ça reste classique quand même, l'enquêtrice qui pourchasse un sérial killer qui a le béguin pour elle. Mais c'est bien équilibré avec la bonne dose d'humour qu'il faut. Pour les fans des romans d'Harlan Coben consacrés à Myron Bolitar, je ne peux que conseiller Whisky Sour.
J'aime bien l'ironie qui fait le sel de la relation professionnel Jack/Benedict : ils se connaissent bien, ils bossent ensemble depuis longtemps et c'est un sacré duo. Ils se balancent des vannes régulièrement mais ça reste pas bien méchant. Ce qui est marrant aussi, comme dans Dxeter de Jeff Lindsay, c'est l'humour de la voix off, du narrateur, de l'héroine pour ce cas là.
<<- Disons simplement que pour des vacances dans les îles, je choisirais une autre personne pour m'accompagner.>>
Je venais sans doute de pulvériser mon record personnel de production d'euphémismes.
Ce genre de petites phrases me fait bien rire. La galerie des personnages secondaires est tout aussi riche et interressante. Ça promet une suite et une série particulièrement interressante à développer et à suivre pour nous !

Jaqueline "Jack" Daniels a suivi les traces de sa mère en devenant policier et réussissant dans un milieu majoritairement masculin. Pour cela, elle a donné; tellement que sa vie sociale en pâti ce qui ne l'empêche pas de continuer à se donner dans son boulot d'autant plus que son adversaire dans ce volume est un tueur en série très difficile à cerner. Dans ce livre, on peut suivre à la fois les pensées de l'héroïne mais aussi celles du tueur. Chaque chapitre relatant les pensées du tueur augmentent les sensations dérangeantes qu'il inspire,(ce gars est totalement malade "tcharbé"), avoir son point de vue ajoute à l'histoire en nous donnant envie de savoir comment il va se faire prendre ou comment Jack va réussir à le débusquer.
Parsemés dans l'histoire sont des moments hilarants sur les échanges de Jack avec son partenaire (au ventre sans fin), les membres du FBI "qu'on lui a coller", son ancien coéquipier (crado) et le service de rendez vous où elle s'est, bien malgré elle, inscrite.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Read with only Minor Issues 7 juin 2006
Par Lisa Shea - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
First, I promise to do this review without any sly references to drinks or mixology. Whiskey Sour is about a 40-some average height, average weight woman who is in a decidedly unaverage profession - she's a lieutenant in homicide. Her mom was a cop, and she knows what she's in for - but it doesn't make it any easier. She has a divorce behind her and promptly has her current relationship ruined. In many ways her life sucks, but the sense that she's making a difference has her plugging onward.

This is good, because she and her hefty partner just landed a pretty nasty case - a serial murderer who is rather perverted. I love mysteries but I'm not really one for the graphic gore - there was one point in the story that I contemplated putting it down based on where the story was going. I did stick with it, though, and was rewarded by a toning down through the rest of the novel.

What made it worth going on was the writing style. There were many times I laughed out loud at the descriptions and sly comments. Yes, there are a lot of in-your-face ones like joking about having a "hunch" when they are discussing someone with a stooped back. There are a lot of other pokes, though, that are far more subtle and a few of these were gems.

I'm a female, and I found it refreshing to read about a mature, capable woman who was stuck in the ups and downs of love. Yes, they had the obligatory few comments about her wardrobe, but compared to most "female detective" stories I've read, this was *incredibly* tame by comparison. She does reasonably well in a bar fight against three opponents. She shoots well. Heck, I know some women who are excellent brawlers and who are incredibly good shots. It's not unknown - but it's amazing how people think it's "too bizarre" to put that kind of character into a book. I found it quite refreshing.

She gets scared, she has doubts. She knows she has failings. And yet she goes in to work, deals with her insomnia and hopes to find someone half worth dating. She's not a wonderwoman, but she does her job and in fact she does it well.

Now, about the flaws. This is a first novel about Jack Daniels, and I suppose it's inevitable that it is FULL of stereotypes. The pair of FBI guys annoyed me every time they showed up because they were just so obviously "target practice", there only to laugh at. There was no depth at all. They were in fact joked about as being cookie cutter people. Several of the other characters, who really could have done incredibly well with a bit more depth, came across as quite shallow. It was a real shame, because the writing style was so crisp and solid. The main character was well done, but the same care wasn't really given to the surrounding characters.

Still, the writing sang and the descriptions of the locations and people were quite vivid. The storyline, if a bit gory, made sense. I found the final summation a bit of a Poirot situation, sort of a "OK we tie up THIS end, then THIS end, then THIS end" almost as if they were running out of paper and had to get it all done quickly before there were no pages left.

I'll definitely read the subsequent books, and we'll see how the writing style evolves over time!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 WHISKEY SOUR IS A SCARY COCKTAIL 14 juin 2004
Par Gail Cooke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
J.A.. Konrath's debut novel is one more entry in the burgeoning chick-thriller arena. And, it's a stunner. We have a fair share of tough female cops but few are on a par with Lt. Jacqueline Daniels - Jack, to her friends. Assigned to Violent Crimes, she's tougher than nails and gives no quarter.
There's currently room for improvement in Jack's life. Her first and only marriage ended in divorce when she put job above home and hearth. She's 46 and her "last sound sleep was sometime during the Reagan administration." Her auburn hair is streaked with too much gray, and the lines on her face are "about age rather than character."
Not a pretty picture, eh? Neither is the mutilated body of a young woman found in a dumpster behind a convenience store. There's a note stapled to her chest, reading, "You can't catch me. I'm the Gingerbread Man." Thus, the chase begins.
Jack's partner portly Detective First Class, Herb Benedict, has never seen a crumb of fast food he didn't like. Theirs is a good camaraderie born of experience and hours spent together. But, Herb has a wife, a family, another life. Jack does not. Since her recent live-in has dumped her for his personal trainer she goes home to an empty apartment and a whiskey sour or three.
It doesn't take a second girl's dismembered body to be discovered in another dumpster for the Chicago police to realize that there's a psychotic killer out there toying with and torturing his victims before they die. If you enjoyed "Silence of the Lambs," this book's for you. The Gingerbread Man kills not for revenge or in anger but for pure pleasure and gratification. He video tapes his grim doings so that he can enjoy rerunning the scenes over and over again.
Most puzzling to Jack is the fact that there seems to be no pattern - no thread linking the victims. Muddying the waters even further is the appearance of two FBI agent's who've been assigned to the case. In her mind they're fric and frac - automatons who are devoted to doing up profiles of known perpetrators and printouts of cases that might be related. She believes they were put on earth to bother her.
When the Gingerbread Man learns that the detective assigned to his case is a woman, Jack, she becomes his next intended victim. It's easy to find out where she lives, and that she lives alone. When hiring two thugs to break her legs only results in a bar brawl and Jack spending one night in the hospital. The Gingerbread Man takes over.
What follows is non-stop action and suspense until a final bloody confrontation in a rat infested sewer.
"Whiskey Sour" isn't for the weak of heart or weak of stomach. Several of the characters, such as Jack's mother and the police chief seem sketched rather than fully realized. It's not easy to craft a tough female protagonist about whom readers care. Some may not feel an affinity for Jack Daniels but many will look forward to meeting her again in the second of this planned series, "Bloody Mary," which is due next year.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 We Need More Female Detectives 9 décembre 2004
Par John P Bernat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
And Konrath has delivered. This deathless genre takes another twist into humor with this wonderful debut effort.

Kinsey Milhone has gotten us to a place of frustration with her Nancy Drew-ish plot devices and artificial descent into lawbreaking. "Ten Big Ones" did not sparkle like Janet E's other stuff, which might telegraph that she might be Plum out of new ideas.

So we need more female detectives. Konrath walks where angels fear to tread too: he's a male writer creating a hard-bioled female character. I think he did a fine job, creating a lively, amusing and smart woman who has problems just like everyone else. He does convey, though, the sheer delight in the chase and the capture which any good cop must have in abundance.

Looking forward to the next one...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining 12 mai 2013
Par Leo Little - Publié sur Amazon.com

I enjoyed reading this story. There were a lot of things that seemed impossible or unreal, but the story flowed well. It kept my interest peaked enough that I was able suspend my disbelief over the lack of suspicion with a box of candy that was just left in her car....Her supervisor letting her return to active duty without being cleared by a doctor...Overly stupid FBI agents(I think this was put in for comic relief so I just laughed when the FBI got in the way).....her being clear headed enough to solve crimes with no sleep and excruciating pain...I deal with both and a person will lose focus when these are combined or prolonged as the story suggests.

The main thing for me is entertainment value and Whisky Sour scores high in that department...I wanted to keep on reading and was not disappointed at the end....I give this story four ****stars...

Reading is my favorite pastime but my favorite authors can't keep up with my voracious reading appetite. So, I am always looking for new authors. I read the blog about this book and assumed it would be light, funny and a good mystery. Wrong on all counts! The characters are not developed, the book doesn't have one funny line in the whole thing and the murders are beyond grisly! I am three quarters through and not one to put down a book until the end so I will muddle through, but the second book in this series, Bloody Mary is going to the used book store.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read!
