WHISKEY SOUR is an interesting mixture of suspense, thriller, and humor. It really works well and I will be reading the rest of this series and anything else Konrath writes.

What could be an eye rolling worthy appellation, actually works wonderfully.
Chicago Police Detective Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels comes by her name by marriage and she doesn't seem to mind so much. She has the task to bring in a serial killer by the unlikely name of The Gingerbread Man. He is torturing and killing women in Chicago and leaving taunting messages for Jack.
She is racing against time to capture him before he kills again.
The humor part is the wonderfully stereotyped FBI agents who, with their profiling computer, make moronic 'insights' into the serial killer's modus operandi. Along with this, poor Jack suffers from chronic insomnia, maxed out credit cards from purchases of late night infomercial merchandise, live in boyfriend leaving her for his personal trainer, and trying her hand with a dating service.
Sum total of this makes for a 4 bean rating.

If you can get this series on audiobooks, it is wonderful! The reader does a fantastic job reading it and really adds to the humor.
