In Whiskey Sour, Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels hunted down a killer dubbed "The Gingerbread Man."

In Bloody Mary, she busted a psychopath with a penchant for dismemberment.

In Rusty Nail, it was a serial killer with a doozy of a family tree.

And now, in Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who's poisoning the city's food supply. But that's just the start of what he has planned, because he's aiming to kill fifty thousand people in the single biggest act of terrorism the US has ever seen. Can she stop him—and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal—without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?

Join Jack, her partner Herb, and her nemesis Harry McGlade, for her fourth, and greatest, case so far.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Like Jeffrey Deaver, Konrath ratchets up the suspense until readers don’t dare stop flipping the pages; the characters are sharply drawn; and the dialogue sounds like real (though funny) people talking…Also like Deaver, Konrath clearly understands the importance of creating a believable, interesting villain. A solid success for those who like to mix comedy and grit.”

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/10/2014

    " this book was eh to me. I couldn't get into it at all like I did with the three previous books in this series. I'm just not really into botulism, so this book wasn't for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy Cashner | 2/2/2014

    " It doesn't seem that Jack can catch a break. She goes from one villian to another and Dirty Marini is no exception. As with most of Konrath's books, Dirty Martini will keep you reading. It is pure escapism. It is brutual and vivid, while being humorous. The characters are interesting and never seem to do the expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 1/23/2014

    " Serious but laugh out loud funny, I love this series. "

    " I was reading this last night at bedtime and then couldn't sleep because it was too creepy. I think this is the scariest of the series. I hate bioterror. Finished the book in the light of day and now I'm ready for something less squeamishy. "

    " This is the novel I have read by J.A. Konrath with Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels as the Chicago detective. This is a very fast read and is very entertaining. The final scene is a little far fetched but the book ends with a bang. If you don't take life too seriously, I recommend this book. "
