Lt. Jacqueline “Jack” Daniels of the Chicago Police Department is back, and once again she’s up to her Armani in murder. Someone is sending Jack snuff videos. The victims are people she knows, and they share a common trait—all were involved in one of Jack’s previous cases. With her stalwart partner, Herb, hospitalized and unable to help, Jack follows a trail of death throughout the Midwest, on a collision course with the smartest and deadliest adversary she has ever known.

During the chase, Jack jeopardizes her career, her love life, and her closest friends. She also comes to a startling realization—serial killers have families, and blood runs thick.

Rusty Nail features more of the laugh-out-loud humor and crazy characters that saturated Whiskey Sour and Bloody Mary, without sacrificing the nail-biting thrills. This is Lt. Jack Daniels’ third, and most exciting, adventure yet.

“Konrath creates the perfect blend of pulse-pounding thrills, side-splitting humor.”— David Ellis,author of In the Company of Liars

“Jack Daniels is a detective for the new millennium: sharply witty, deftly wry, and unabashedly cleve." —James Rollins, author of Black Order

    " A quick two day read... As always creepy bad guys and a few black humor chuckles along the way... As always the chapters in the killer's voice are balanced by the crazy chaos that Lt Jack Daniels always finds herself in! "

A video tape of the doctor who analysed the handwriting on the note being skinned. finally, an attractive young lady becoming engaged to Harry McGlade and when Harry convinces Jack to act as his best man and gets Jack to persuade Phin to give away Harry's bride. The bride actually befriends Jack and for the first time in twenty years, Jack has a friend. Things really start to come apart when Bud's common-law wife takes out the team who escort her from twelve years in prison to show where bodies are buried and then breaks out Bud Kork from the hospital. Their involvement with the wedding complicates Harry and Jack's Life to an entirely new level. Follow the twists in the plot and the heroic actions of all the principle players for the exciting turn from failure to success for Jack and some friends. A breath taking read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kim Epps Frederickson | 1/15/2014

    " too much detail with the killing part. Too graphic for my taste. Rest of the book was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derk | 1/14/2014

    " Well done. Be warned, though; lot of torture and killing. Within its own confines the plot held up well. One odd note: two of the series characters seemed to think a colonoscopy is only for men. Not true. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/6/2014

    " The third installment in the Jack Daniels series was a little graphic for my taste. However, I still enjoyed it and it definitely held some moments which made the book worthwhile. A must read for a fan of the series or someone looking for an excellent mystery/thriller novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Paulson | 12/29/2013

    " Pretty gory and somewhat predictable. However, the protagonist was fun and apparently the villain pops up again in later books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kriscrowe | 12/20/2013

    " I think I'll need to go back and read the first two in this series--I thought it would be fluffier, but it was a pretty meaty mystery , but a lot of death. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 11/18/2013

    " The third book in the Jack Daniels series really delivers! A great, thrilling ride- I'm looking forward to the next one. "

    " Hideous and diabolical - not your grannies thriller! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Ballance | 5/24/2012

    " Fun, easy cop-drama but with humor too. Good for killing time on a rainy day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luanne | 5/23/2012

    " Another great Jack Daniels book. I loved the wedding scene. Definitely a series I will continue with. Mr. Whiskers is quite a character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 4/27/2012

    " Pretty graphic book - not for anyone who doesn't like violent books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/22/2011

    " I liked it, but it wasn't as good as the first two. I had a feeling who Alex was fairly early on but I still read it very quickly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 10/6/2011

    " Rusty Nail was just...not great, but not bad. But I love the series as a whole and will most definately read the next one. "

    " Edge of your seat, nail bitting right to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kellylynn | 5/17/2011

    " Just an okay story. Very quick and easy read. None of the characters were too annoying, but there wasn't really any strong development either. And it was rather easy to predict the who did it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. The Ginger Bread man's whole family comes after Jack. The mom, dad, brother and sister are all after Jack. All of them but the mastermind sister die. She marries Harry McGlade and dopes Jack, Harry and Finn at the reception so she can kidn "

    " Blood, guts and belly laughs! This is the most real woman I've read and to think it's written by a dude. Go figure! All the secondary characters are all so well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 2/3/2011

    " Ah, my favorite genre. Cheesy fun serial-killer books. Gloriously cheesy, laugh out loud funny and totally over the top grossness. These may be my new Sookie replacement, except there is no hot Vampire Eric character. "

    " At last, a book that is fun to read, interesting characters that you care about, interesting plot developments and a book that is hard to put down. It is simply fun to read----no prizes for this book or for the series, just entertaining reading. At times, a little bloody and gruesome but fun. "
