Decent story but not the correct narrator.

I am a big fan of the Jack Daniels mysteries but this one was just ok. The plot was pretty good but the narrator was not a good fit for this series. He was unable to create a midwestern accent (which all previous narrators were able to do), and he was unable to pull off the tough guy persona of Finn.

Entertaining from beginning to end.

This is a case where a brilliantly plotted mystery, combining 3 narratives is equally matched with the voice talents of the narrator. Each of the characters were fun to follow and I never got bored. Konrath knows right where to place his quick wit , and stays respectful when the story goes dark. Chris seemed to know who these people were and what they’d sound like. I’ll definitely be re-visiting this series.

Not with my last breath

Not enough insight from the criminals, and way too much insight from Harry. If this was the first book I discovered from this author, it would’ve also been the last. Harry is meant to be funny but comes off as pointless, childish, and goofy. Made the book unbearable!

First but not the last!

What an entertaining listen! My first JA Konrath book but certainly not the last. In fact I’ve already bought my next one.
This is a clever thriller, threaded through with black humour and enjoyable craziness. A Clever and detailed story. Not too much about the nasty villains but lots about our hero’s lives and characters. Hopefully there will be more stories with them leading the action.
