Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Things are going well for Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels of the Chicago Police Department. She has solved some of the city's toughest and most high-profile homicides. Her personal life is finally in order. Her friends and family are safe and happy. And she just got a call that eased her mind like nothing else could: Alex Kork, one of the most dangerous criminals Jack ever arrested, killed herself while in jail.
But things sour quickly when a group of vigilantes on a murderous spree decide to take down a cop and the people she cares about ... and they turn downright awful when Jack discovers that Kork may not be dead after all.
The next eight hours will be the worst of Jack's life. And that's saying something.
Fuzzy Navel is perfect for readers who like their mysteries with a shot of humor. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié.

What a rollicking, fun adventure this series has turned out to be. I love protagonist Jack Daniels and she got to show a side of herself in this offering that wasn't quite as stoic as in some of the other books. I also love the other main characters in the series - her partner, her fiance, her mother, her cat, her friend and pool partner, her past police partner (surprises there).
Antagonist Alex Kork is back in this book and she is one nasty psycho of a woman.
And, after the blood, guts, humor and more humor, author Konrath leaves us with one helluva cliffhanger. Not nice at all. I'm starting to read Cherry Bomb immediately so I can find out what happened.
It sounds like an impossible challenge, if only because you'd think the laughs would relieve the tension. Well, they don't. In much the same way that fresh strawberries enhance a dry champagne, JA Konrath's tremendous sense of humor only serves to strengthen the sense that his characters are likable people to whom you can relate, not super-tough action figure automatons. They laugh at their own foibles, they don't take themselves too seriously, they trip over their feet and their motivations are sometimes ridiculous.
At times, the humor is broad and on other occasions it's subtle, but it always serves to make the dark moments even scarier, as Konrath whiplashes you between laughter and fear. Fuzzy Navel, Konrath's latest roller coaster of a novel, is a ride with higher-highs, lower-lows, and bigger stakes than ever.
By containing most of Fuzzy Navel to one setting over a short period of time, Konrath ramps up the suspense to a level beyond any of his previous works. The villains are colorful, plentiful and bloodthirsty. Jack and her posse find themselves besieged on every side, and its unimaginable how they'll get out of this one. It's a dull cliche to warn someone that they won't be able to put a book down, but, sorry, it's true. I'm just glad that I started reading Fuzzy Navel in the morning; otherwise, I might have been up all night.
The worst part of finishing a Jack Daniels mystery is the sad realization that Konrath can't turn them out on a weekly basis. Jack is one of my favorite literary heroines - she's smart, tough and funny, a strong and sexy mix of Rosalind Russell, Sigourney Weaver and, just because I like her, Holly Hunter. I can't wait till the next time we get to spend a day together.
