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.
