    " Slow to start, much better finish, but not one of his best. At the end you are thinking, please be done already. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Bannon | 2/6/2014

    " I have been totally impressed with Konrath's ability to promote his books and have become a follower of his blog, but had not read anything until this week. This is a pretty good "beach read," a special category of escapism that I like to read. If you like John Locke, you will probably like Konrath better because the characters have more depth and the plots more dimension. Yep, bottom-line, I'll read more of his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 2/1/2014

    " The first chapter blew me away. The rest of the book bored me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally Beaudean | 1/25/2014

    " Shot of Tequila was my first J.A. Konrath novel -- apparently I've missed several along the way. At first I was annoyed that the book didn't spend enough time with Jack Daniels -- the character I thought was to be the focus. Then, when I understood that Tequila was indeed the main character I became intrigued. It's not often that the criminal (not the detective) is the main character in a mystery. I liked the change. I came to like the character, and I definitely liked the story. I was intrigued by the author's sense of humor -- even in dire conditions. The language is a bit rough for me, but it seems to fit the situations and characters, so I'd recommend this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin | 1/21/2014

    " a bit too much fighting and killing for me on this one! Though I did like the main character, a hired killer with redeeming qualities. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey Bennett | 1/12/2014

    " I loved this book. So great to read it from the perspective of the criminal....couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/30/2013

    " Such fun! I'm a huge fan of J.A. Konrath but this is the first Jack Daniels book I've read. Believable characters and a fast pace made this quite an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/8/2013

    " My least favorite by Konrath. Too much details of action sequences and not enough storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kellie Harrington | 12/6/2013

    " very fast pace tequila was a pretty cool guy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carl Harsch | 11/23/2013

    " Another Jack Daniels adventure. Similar to the others. Lots of action, albeit far fetched. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debi | 11/11/2013

    " Seemed to lack a moral compass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Verdicchio | 10/24/2013

    " 3.5 fast reading,held my interest.very gory "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 liirogue | 7/31/2013

    " Quirky, pulpy action book with a good sense of humor. Over-the-top action that you'll need a dose of belief suspension for, but you'll never look at a back-flipping gymnast quite the same. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Deakin | 6/4/2013

    " A great book the authors notes at the back sum it up perfectly as pulp fiction. Lots of action and an anti-hero with a great back story "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deb Roy | 2/21/2013

    " A lot of violence, enough to make you squirm and flinch - just what you'd expect from J A Konrath. Good character development, however, which makes you keep reading because the author somehow makes you care about these people in his world. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Darcy | 2/13/2013

    " I have been so so on the Jack Daniels books and this one was beyond absurd. Tequila was a thug with some morals. Jack was ok, she was funny with Tequila was slightly towards the end. Most of the story was just people running around and killing each other, that got old fast. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gregory | 2/8/2013

    " Good, above average thriller at a great price. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc-Antoine | 2/14/2012

    " Tequila puts all other tough guys to shame, if you want to understand the term bad ass, read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 12/29/2011

    " Like the rest of the Jack Daniels series, this is a fun easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 11/14/2011

    " Quick read. A great prequel to the Jack Daniels' series. It would be great to see Tequila again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 7/12/2011

    " liked how jack was secondary in the intro of this book "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Darcy | 7/5/2011

    " I have been so so on the Jack Daniels books and this one was beyond absurd. Tequila was a thug with some morals. Jack was ok, she was funny with Tequila was slightly towards the end. Most of the story was just people running around and killing each other, that got old fast. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 2/11/2011

    " I found this book boring, and not at all like the other stories. I wouldn't suggest it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 9/2/2010

    " liked how jack was secondary in the intro of this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauralynn | 7/5/2010

    " As usual, Konrath kept me interested through the whole book. I've never read one of his that I didn't like and he didn't disappoint me this time. Tequila was really a bad guy, but you had to like him anyway. Action packed all the way through! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/21/2010

    " Very short book; but it took me awhile to finish because I forgot I hadn't finished it. I really like the character of Tequila. "
