Cherry Bomb by J.A. Konrath



Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey is satisfying, not my favorite but satisfying.   Jack Daniels the book character is a hard nosed female detective tracking a psychopathic serial killer out to destroy all who Jack loves.

Apparently in a previous book, Jack had incarcerated and disfigured Alex while killing her only love.  Alex took this amiss and that is her rationale for her demented behavior.

I have only read one other Konrath book and this one was even more violent than the last one.   This too had some humor mixed with the incessant violence.  The action was continuous with soul searching by the protagonist and introspection by the villain.   The viewpoint of the villain is often overlooked and that added an interesting dimension to this book.  

The plot was not too complex, revenge, horrific revenge was the theme.  It was well done and a compelling read.

I highly recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
