Whiskey Sour by JA Konrath

Title: Whiskey Sour

Author: JA Konrath

Genre: Mystery

Summary: Lt. Jack Daniels retains her sense of humor while having a bad week and working with her ex-partner, who is the key to unraveling the identity of the Gingerbread Man.

The Take-Away: I've been reading Joe's blog (see first half of author name) and occasionally visit his homepage (see second half of author name.) The information presented and the voice used in his blog postings make me think, "Damn, I need to add this man to my already growing reading list." Thank the fates that the Public Library was able to provide the first book for me quickly. The sharp, crisp sentences are exactly what I'd have expected after reading his blog. The characters are flawed, but good at their jobs. Even the name "Jack Daniels" is forgiveable once explained as to how it was acquired.

Plus it's a hell of a marketing technique.

Recommendation: Get it from the library, but expect straight forward detective work.

Bonus Note: Word Nerd has her review up too.
