Summary

Summary

At the end of Fuzzy Navel , J. A. Konrath surprised listeners with an agonizing cliff-hanger: One of Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels's loved ones is dead. But who? Listeners were left clamoring to know more.

Cherry Bomb , the sixth Jack Daniels mystery, opens at the funeral. While Jack stands graveside, tears in her eyes, her cell phone rings. It's the killer, escaped maniac Alex Kork, taunting Jack, drawing her ever further into a twisted game of cat and mouse. Because while Alex is more than willing to kill random victims, Jack is her true prey. But which woman wants revenge more?

Cherry Bomb is J. A. Konrath's most gripping novel of suspense yet--filled with twists and turns that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

"One part murder, two parts mayhem, with a generous splash of humor and garnished with some of the most interesting characters in current fiction." -Bookreporter.com

Booklist Review

*Starred Review* Fans of the Jacqueline Jack Daniels series who thought the last book was a shocker are in for some major thrills. This one opens with Daniels, the Chicago police detective, reeling from a recent personal tragedy. But she doesn't have much time to put herself together before she receives a phone call from escaped psychopath Alexandra Kork (Fuzzy Navel, 2008), who tells Daniels she has a mere 12 hours to save the life of an innocent man if she can find him, that is. What follows comprises an elaborate game of cat and mouse, as Alex Kork revels in her own fiendishness while Jack Daniels discovers just what she is willing to risk to stop this killer, once and for all. Hands down, this is the best of the Daniels series, which is no small feat, since the previous entries have been uniformly outstanding. Like Jeffery Deaver and Ridley Pearson, Konrath is a master of suspense, playing with the reader as his villains play with their victims. Readers will finish this book utterly exhausted, gasping for breath, and wondering, after this, what can possibly be next for Jack Daniels?--Pitt, David Copyright 2009 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

At the start of Konrath's brisk and breezy sixth Jack Daniels mystery, the guilt-ridden Chicago cop, who's attending the funeral of a loved one, takes a call from Alexandra Kork, the sadistic psychopath who did in the loved one at the end of 2008's Fuzzy Navel ("I checked the Weather Channel.... It's raining in Chicago. That's appropriate, don't you think? Funerals on sunny days seem so wrong"). Barred from the official hunt for Kork because she's personally involved in the case, Daniels soon finds herself on the wrong side of the law with few of the usual resources to call on. Meanwhile, the wily Kork, who's stopped counting her victims (after 50 they blur), strews bodies over a wide area as part of a scheme to lead Daniels to a slow and painful death. Konrath leavens the violence with offbeat humor, including a feces-throwing monkey in love with a cashmere sweater. The slam-bang ending is sure to satisfy series fans.
