Jack Daniels Stories is a treat if you are already a fan of the series of novels featuring Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels. Over several mystery novels, Konrath has established Jack and a coterie of supporting characters, including partner Herb, dying badass Phin Trout, and tacky detective Harry McGlade, in a tough world of Chicago crime and justice. Now, in these stories, Jack solves some more direct mysteries (including two locked room stories--old school!)that don't take a whole novel to unwind, and the supporting characters get to step to the front and become the main protagonist in several stories each. I enjoyed each and every one, and often found myself laughing out loud. I also appreciated the introduction to each story, in which Konrath laid out what inspired a story, what he was trying to do with it, and how he felt about the finished product.

If you are new to Konrath and the world of Jack Daniels, this is a very good jumping on place and a chance to sample Konraths style before jumping into the novels.

At the time I purchased it, this collection was selling as a Kindle download for just $2.99 and I found it to be quite a bargain. If you know you are going to love Konrath's short stories, an even better deal is 55 Proof for $4.99, which contains all of this book's stories, plus all those from 3 other collections by Konrath as well.

Feeling a bit cautious? Don't want to commit to a full length Jack Daniels novel quite yet?
This anthology is right up your alley. Nearly a dozen short stories from the world of Jack Daniels.
Have one or two for the road.

I'm sure we've all been in this position. You just finished a book you really enjoyed and now you're wondering

what to read next. You pick up a couple of different titles from your bookshelf,. start to read a chapter or

two and find that nothing really grabs you.

I had that problem a few weeks ago when a friend suggested that I read the first in the "Jack Daniels" series

of J A Konrath books,. for this suggestion I owe her a HUGE debt of thanks.

I began with Whiskey Sour which introduces the main character Det Jack Daniels and a supporting

group of wonderful characters. Well, here it is six weeks later,. and I have exhausted the entire series

available up to this point and am eagerly awaiting the next installment due out in October.

I am one of those readers who doesn't like to give too much away in discussing the books but let me

assure you that once you begin the series you will be caught up in the characters and plot of all the books

and wish you could read slower to savor the enjoyment longer.

My friend did me a huge favor in suggesting this author and I'm sure you will agree with both of us that this

is an author whose work is thoroughly fun, fast paced and a great read

I thought Jack Daniels was a guy. I found out Jack was a girl and the book was written by a guy. I have read 3 novels and plan on reading more of J.A. Konrath's books. Superb writing. Wish I had discovered Jack Daniels and J.A. Konrath earlier.

Enjoy Konrath' s writing and his crazy characters, Jack, Herb, Phin and McGlade. Just don't really care for short stories. Reader can not really get involved with the story or the characters. Kind of like a one night stand.

Any fan of Konrath should enjoy this collection with liberal doses of Jack, Phin and uber sleaze Harry McGlade. This is Konrath at his twisted best only in short form. Jack's mysteries weren't hard to crack but fun to read. Being exposed to Phin as a standalone character add more depth and darkness to an already troubled soul. McGlade is his usual sleazy funny self, though the depths he reaches here really outdoes himself. Leave your PC glasses at home they will do you no good here. If you are new to Konrath be warned these are not for the faint of heart or the chaste. Wahtever your pleasure tends, enjoy.

It'll save me the agony of knowing I paid for such junk. None of these short stories were of much value and they all had the same silliness structure - some worse than others. Bordering on perversion, they went past believability. Violent beyond gross. The attempt to make funny with the oddball characters got old quickly and never ended. Assuming this is typical, I'll pass on all those other books the author put out there.

I went into this thinking that the Jack Daniels character would be the star of all of the stories, but she isn't. However, She is the main character in, "On The Rocks," "With a Twist," "Body Shots," and "Overproof." I believe, 4 of the 12 stories, and is mentioned in most, and a supporting character in others. In "Whelp Wanted," it's Harry's obnoxious frenemy, Harry McGlade, who is the star, as he is in "Taken To The Cleaners," "School Daze," and "The Necro File." Phineas Troutt takes front and center in "Street Music," "Epitaph," "Suffer," "Bereavement," and "Last Request." Her partner, Herb Benedict, headlines "Pot Shot," and none of the main characters is featured in "The One That Got Away." Even the one series character it featured, The Gingerbread Man from "Whiskey Sour," isn't the lead character in that story, which is told from the viewpoint of his intended victim. So Phin wins the most stories lottery in this collection of shorts.

In general I enjoyed the stories. Certainly, a short story does not allow the depth of development that a novella or novel does, and that showed. While I wasn't fond of the picture the stories painted of Phineas Troutt, preferring what I know of him from the three series novels I've read, I tended to enjoy his stories the most. Of the stories featuring the Jack Daniels character, "Body Shots" was, to me, the best of the lot. I enjoyed the story featuring Herb Benedict, too, feeling that it gave me more insight into the character, which will come into play in reading the remaining series novels.
