What I Read #59
Whiskey Sour by J A Konrath: The first in the Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels mystery series. Jack is a lieutenant with the Chicago Police Department. She is in her mid forties and feels like she is missing the best part of her life being "married" to her job. Her ex-husband left her years ago because she spent too much time on the job, not in the home.
There is someone stalking and murdering women on the streets of Chicago. It is up to Jack and her partner, the always noshing Herb Benedict. Together they begin to put the pieces together that are needed to catch this psycho.
Told in plain language, with generous helpings of humor, even the most serious reader will find moments when he or she laughs out loud.
This is one series that I think I will enjoy. In fact, I have begun reading the next in the series. They are all names after bar drinks, which in itself his humorous.
