Description 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.

A good well written story. A very bad baddie and a good detective on his trail. Amusing bits to laugh at with the not very clever profilers for the FBI. All in all a good read

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 !
Fredo ;)

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.

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...

Like someone who orders a new cocktail and takes a couple of small sips to be sure it tastes good before gulping it down, I first encountered J.A. Konrath's series heroine Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels in a few short stories, often paired up with other authors' series characters, before deciding to read the first Daniels novel, "Whiskey Sour." When I finished "Whiskey Sour," I found it was quite strong, like the main character's namesake, but also smooth and enjoyable.

"Jack" Daniels is a 40-something Chicago police detective with a virtually non-existent personal life, a messy love life, a very large partner, and an even larger case. She's on the trail of the Gingerbread Man, a clever, organized serial killer with a set agenda who kidnaps, tortures, mutilates, and murders women. The case rapidly becomes a media sensation, and she's got to figure out why he's targeting specific women and put an end to his spree. Her interest isn't merely professional, though. The Gingerbread Man takes an interest in Jack as well and starts to terrorize her, first by hiring some goons to do her harm and then by going after her personally.

"Whiskey Sour," like some mixed drinks, is a combination of two separate kinds of mysteries. In part, it's a police procedural, as Jack and her overweight partner Herb put the pieces together and follow the trail of the killer. Other parts are a mano-a-mano (or more precisely womano-a-mano) suspense thriller when the killer targets Jack (and she later tracks him down). Konrath's language is quite descriptive, and the novel is a fast paced read, with good action sequences and a particularly exciting ending in some underground sewers.

"Whiskey Sour" isn't just a hard nosed thriller however. Konrath (and Jack as well) have quite a sense of humor, and there's plenty of lively banter in the book. This rather breezy, light language at times is reminiscent of some comic mysteries, and, to keep it from clashing too much with the at times gruesome tone of the primary storyline, Konrath adopts a rather effective narrative convention. Most of the chapters are written in the first person and narrated by Jack. However, some chapters, those in which the killings and torture are described, are written in the third person, from the viewpoint of the killer. This allows Konrath to credibly shift the narration from light to heavy and give insight into the killer's extremely twisted psyche.

The only aspect of the book that really doesn't work is the introduction of two FBI agents who are complete morons, even by the standards of mystery novels that typically portray FBI agents as bureaucratic, self-important meddlers who always get things wrong. These two, who construct a completely ridiculous computer profile of the killer (after one killing, they "deduce" that he likes line dancing and wearing his mother's underwear) and devote all their resources to tracking down this mythical countrified Norman Bates, make Inspector Clouseau look like Sherlock Holmes. Although Konrath was able to credibly shift between Jack's bantering tone and the rather hard edged description of some of the sadism in the book, the buffoonish FBI agents went a bit too far over the line. Similarly, another character in the book, a private detective who has some knowledge of one of the murder victims, is also way over the top and annoying as well.

"Whiskey Sour" isn't for everyone's tastes. The violence, torture, and sadism are described in sometimes brutal, graphic terms. For those who are not offended by such language, however, it's a fast paced, thrilling read. Konrath describes Jack's personal life in just enough detail to give readers an idea of who she is and what she does while leaving plenty of room for future novels to fill in some of the details. His main story, though, is quite well plotted, and the eventual revelation of the killer's motive is rather surprising and even more appropriate now than it was a decade ago when Konrath originally wrote the novel. "Whiskey Sour" is the first chance I've had to spend a fair amount of time bellied up to the bar with Jack Daniels, but it won't be the last.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Characters but Can Be Graphic 29 avril 2016
Par Hope - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm usually not into serial-killer mysteries, but I enjoyed the author's blog, so I figured I might as well give it a try. I'm still not into serial killers (especially not scenes written from the serial killer POV) but whatevez, I still enjoyed this book!

The plot is pretty straight forward- someone has been killing young women and dumping their bodies in trash cans, so Lt. Jack Daniels is on the case! (and yes, Jack is a woman, thanks for noticing!) I loved Jack. She's a 40-something year old no-nonsense detective, WITHOUT a chip on her shoulder. Yeah, she's working in a male-dominated industry, but so what? She's worked her way up, she's good at what she does, and she's gotten over herself. (I can't tell you how many female MCs I wanted to slap silly because all they do is whine about how unfair life is.)

There's even a fun bromance- I love the banter between Jack and her partner Herb. No sexual tension (thank goodness b/c nothing ruins a fun f/m platonic friendship faster than having them get into a relationship), just partners who are comfortable with/enjoy ribbing each other, but always has the other's back. There's also fun interaction between Jack and the TSTL FBI. (If the FBI really are this stupid, I'd be worried, but they were hilarious- reminded me of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern from Hamlet, so I didn't mind how completely incompetent they were.) Oh- the cops can be TSTL at times, too. (At one point Jack and Herb find a bag of candy an unknown person left in Jack's car. Should they have the candy checked out for poison/razor blades? Nah. Who does that? EAT ALL THE CANDIEZ!)

Anyway. Some stupidity on their parts aside, I loved the book for the fun characters. The serial killer plot wasn't my thing, but a good character can make any plot great, so I still enjoyed the book. Just be warned- some of the scenes especially from the serial killer POV can be graphic/disturbing, so this book isn't for everyone. But if you enjoy buddy humor and are OK with some gore, or love serial killers (*backs away slowly*) then go for it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun and fast paced 7 septembre 2016

"Whiskey Sour" by J.A. Konrath is the first in a series of books about a female detective named Jack Daniels. I very much enjoyed it and am halfway through the second in the series already. It was very well written, fast paced, and had moments of laugh out loud humor. This book is a quick read that I didn't want to put down and I'm glad I found them. If you like the Stephanie Plum novels, these are similar, but quite a bit darker. The author does not go into detail with the violence, which I appreciate. I am not one for torture porn in either books or movies. You are dealing with serial killers and the horrible things they do, but detailing every excruciating minute of the victim's death is not necessary to make a good book.
This is a fun book, not one that is going to provoke philosophical thoughts, and that's just what I needed when I found it. Recommended.

This was my April Reading Challenge selection for “a book I’ve already read”. This is one of my favorite series but I had not read them in over a decade and was excited to revisit Jack and the gang.
I love a good series and even more a female detective lead who’s no pushover or man hungry floozy. Jack Daniels is smart, sarcastic, tough and amazing at her job but does have some dating issues. She loves her job and working nearly 24/7 does not make dating/relationships easy. Her partner, Herb, and some of the other secondary characters are rude, oddball and hilarious as well. You cannot read these books without being amused!
Funny aside, there is a very psychotic serial killer on the loose here and once he sees Jack investigating him, the fixation with her begins. This is not a cozy mystery! If violence bothers you it would be best to skip these books altogether. This is a great thriller series with amazing, funny characters but they are also violent (not extreme gore but still bloody) Stephen King-esque stories and crimes.
