Fuzzy Navel by JA Konrath

Having read the last four books in this series, I find myself completely addicted to this author and to Jack Daniels and her entourage. I thought the premise of handling the story line over the course of a day was an interesting way to give us more information about the characters. There never was a dull moment and the action scenes kept coming and coming.

As with all of the books by the author, the writing and editing were superb. My biggest complaint about this book was that the ending gave us just a little bit too much of a cliffhanger. While I typically like to have a good cliffhanger ending I cannot imagine reading this book as it first came out and having to wait an entire year. Having said that, it definitely ensured that I will read the next one.

This book is recommended for all fans of the Jack Daniels series. It is definitely one you will not want to miss. This series is recommended for readers who like a light mystery, something like Stephanie Plum, with a little less silliness (not all bad, Stephanie can be annoying!)

Description:
Anthony and Macavity Award finalist J.A. Konrath returns with the latest gripping–and hilarious–Jack Daniels mystery.

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.

Rating: ★★★★☆

    Thanks for the review. I haven’t read a lot of thrillers (though enjoy the Preston & Child books), but it’s so inspiring to see what Mr. Konrath is accomplishing as an ebook author. I’ll have to check out one of his Jack Daniels novels. 😉
