About the book, from the publisher:
In Whiskey Sour, Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels hunted down a killer dubbed “The Gingerbread Man.” In Bloody Mary, she busted a psychopath with a penchant for dismemberment. In Rusty Nail, it was a serial killer with a doozy of a family tree. And now, in Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who’s poisoning the city’s food supply. Can she catch him -- and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham’s surprise proposal -- without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?Among the early praise for Dirty Martini:
"Konrath's fourth drink-inspired mystery to feature Lt. Jacqueline Jack Daniels (after 2006's Rusty Nail) is a particularly potent mix of equal parts mirth and mayhem with a dash of sex and a twist (or two) of plot. His latest should be taken straight, no chaser needed."Read an excerpt from Dirty Martini and learn more about J.A. Konrath and his writing.
"Konrath ratchets up the suspense until readers don't dare stop flipping the pages. A solid success for those who like to mix comedy and grit."
"Mix witty repartee with edge-of-your-chair suspense, over-the-top killing devices, and action that never takes a breather, and you have Konrath's latest white-knuckle thriller. Not to be missed."
