Dirty Martini - Jack Daniels, Bk 4 - Unabridged - Audio Cassette Author:J. A. Konrath, Dick Hill (Narrator), Susie Breck (Narrator) Homicide Lieutenant Jacqueline 'Jack' Daniels is in some serious trouble. Her boyfriend wants to get married. Her partner wants to transfer to another department. Her dead father may not be dead after all. And a brilliant sociopath known as the Chemist is poisoning Chicago's food supply, killing hundreds of people. — Jack is put in ch... more »arge of the case. But how do you catch someone who is always in disguise, who ingeniously spreads toxins in restaurants, grocery stores, and fast-food places without leaving any clues?
Time is running out. The Chemist has something big planned - something really big - and Jack has to push herself to the limits of her capabilities, or else everyone she knows and everything she holds dear will be destroyed.
In Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who wants to murder an entire city. Can she catch him - and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal - without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?
Homicide detective Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels tangles with a psycno bent on poisoning Chicago. A good, engrossing story, but with few holes...the killer's knowledge to use the smorgasboard of poisons he employs is never fully explained. He seems to have extensive knowledge of horticulture, animal breeding (especially snails), poison extraction and synthesis, and bomb making on the order of Timothy McVeigh. If you are a reader of cozy mysteries, be warned that this police procedural includes graphic descriptions of the perpetrator's crimes, even though the book is laced with humor.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book on audio version. I liked that there were male and female readers. It was well read. It kept my attention. I had not read any of the previous books but I am now seeking those to order on PBS.
