Audio Review: Whiskey Sour (Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Series) by J.A. Konrath

“I was overworked, underpaid, and socially retarded. I discovered J. A. Konrath over Christmas break, and in devouring all of his thrillers I came across a mystery series. Whiskey Sour is the first book in Konrath’s Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels Mysteries. This book is a big departure from his techno-thrillers. Though Jack investigates heinous crimes, the novel is written with […]

Book Review: Disturb by J.A. Konrath

The last J.A. Konrath book I read during my reading frenzy during Christmas was Disturb. This is the eighth book in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective, and wasn’t one of my favorite. Not only did I figure out the deal with the killer early on, but the main characters weren’t particularly sympathetic, and the plot began to veer toward […]

Book Review: Webcam by Jack Kilborn

Webcam by Jack Kilborn brings the return of Chicago Homicide Detective Tom Mankowski. Tom has appeared in a couple other books in the Konrath/Kilborn Collective, and has become one of my favorite characters. This time around, Tom is investigating the case of women being murdered by a webcam stalker. This book was a fast-paced techno thriller […]

Book Review: The Final Winter by Iain Rob Wright

In my determination to read all of author J.A. Konrath’s books, I stumbled upon another writer who collaborated with him on one of his novels, Holes in the Ground, the sequel to Konrath’s Origin. For that novel, author Iain Rob Wright integrated a couple of his characters from his book The Final Winter, which is about a group of people trapped […]

Book Review: Haunted House (Afraid) by Jack Kilborn

Book Review: Haunted House (Afraid) by Jack Kilborn

“Looks like you invited the wrong goddamn dominatrix to your little party, bitch!” Jack Kilborn brings together eight of his surviving characters from previous five books in the Konrath/Kilborn collective. Most of these characters I was familiar with, except for one from a short story I never read, but it was still pretty cool to […]

Book Review: Endurance (Afraid) by Jack Kilborn

Book Review: Endurance (Afraid) by Jack Kilborn

Endurance is the 3rd book in Jack Kilborn’s Afraid series of books, and I’m glad I read another book in between it and Trapped. While it’s not as gross as Trapped, it comes a very close second. In this novel, people happen upon the Rushmore Inn, a bed and breakfast hidden in the West Virginian hills. However, once they check in, they […]

Book Review: Origin by J. A. Konrath

Book Review: Origin by J. A. Konrath

“We don’t know the Devil’s side of the story, because God wrote all the books.”  The second book in the J.A. Konrath/ Jack Kilborn collective is Origin, which is a big departure from the action-thriller, The List. In Origin, workers discover something monstrous while digging the Panama Canal. Whatever it is, President Theodore Roosevelt believe it to be so important […]
