Book review: Shot of Tequila by J. A. Konrath

Shot of Tequila is the novel where Jack Daniels the Chicago detective makes her first appearance but she is not the star of this book.  This one is all about Tequila.

This is one of Konrath first novels and it’s only available on the internet because he was never able to get it published. I find that to be a little surprising because it was a pretty good read and it would make a very scary movie. Bub, the devil, the villan of the book was […]

Book review: The List by J.A. Konrath, Jack Kilborn

This book brought tears to my eyes, I was laughing so hard at the characters and the situations […]
