Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels is having a bad week. Her live-in boyfriend has left her for his personal trainer, chronic insomnia has caused her to max out her credit cards with late-night home shopping purchases, and a frightening killer who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" is dumping mutilated bodies in her district. While avoiding the FBI and its moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Jack and her binge-eating partner, Herb, must catch the maniac before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list. Whiskey Sour is the first book in the bestselling Jack Daniels series, full of laugh-out-loud humor and edge-of-your-seat suspense.… (mehr)

Lieutenant Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels of the Chicago Police Department is called out when a body is found in a bin - the work of a serial killer. The killer calls himself the 'The Gingerbread Man'. Some interesting characters which add to the story though not the FBI agents.
Look forward to reading the next in the series ( )

Weak characters and plot - the writing just isn't enough to hold my attention. ( )

I stumbled across this series several months ago and decided to add it to my 'read when I'm in the right mood' list. I'm not sure why I like it so much so let's go through some of the aspects that I've noticed.

Lieutenant Jack Daniels is a rounded personality, she's got both a history and foibles. However the relevation of the events that shaped her is not dumped down in a lump but rather woven into the story where appropriate.

The killer has a history which is very nicely obscured (so as to not reveal his identity prematurely) while being placed precisely as Jack Daniels discovers more facts about the case. And this leads into one of the things I really love. The hard work which goes into investigation of the murders is evident. Things are not made too easy for the police (there are some instances in which people can be too lucky in having facts revealed), and similarly they are not 'too stupid for words.' I didn't really like the way the FBI profilers were presented as depending so much on their computer profiling but maybe it was supposed to be comedic relief to the tension. It didn't really impact on my enjoyment though

I really enjoyed this one ( )

This was an entertaining mystery which combined thriller level suspense and some humor, including some really bad puns, in an engaging mystery. Lieutenant "Jack" Daniels of the Chicago Police Department's Violent Crimes division is having a bad week. Besides her live-in boyfriend deciding to leave her for his personal trainer and raging insomnia, I serial killer who calls himself the Gingerbread Man is leaving bodies in 7-Elevens in her district.

Things go from bad to worse when two FBI Agents are assigned to help with the case and try to help by using profiling to identify the killer. Jack doesn't think it is likely that the killer is a Canadian bed-wetter who rides a horse and has scoliosis though. She and her partner Detective Benedict, who seems to be constantly eating, are busy following their own clues to the killer.

When the killer seems to develop a crush on Jack, things get even worse. And her partner's suggestion that she sign up with a dating agency to find someone to care for outside of the police force could have come at a better time.

I enjoyed the many quirky characters in this story and look forward to reading more of Jack's adventures. ( )
