review 1: I'm not sure how often this concept of writing has been done before, although I have seen it several times in TV series, but this is a final book for two series written by different authors. I thought it was a great story but I was pretty invested in the storyline before I even knew this book existed. I'm not sure if someone picking this up with no knowledge of either series would like it at all or if they would in fact love it. Knowing what I know now, I would read both series before picking up this one. I came to this book by way of Blake Crouch's Andrew Thomas/Luther Kite series. It was explained that this book can be read as a stand alone so you didn't have to read either series to understand what was going on. Here's where that theory fell through for me. As I... more hadn't read Konrath's series beforehand, I had no emotional attachment to those characters. The protagonist is Jack (Jacqueline) Daniels and I was easily half way through the book before I started to sympathize with her. Prior to that, she just seemed like a self-centered nasty person who I would have been glad to see Luther (the antagonist) kill. I would highly recommend this to readers of either series but I'm hesitant to recommend it as a stand alone. I just don't think you would enjoy it quite as much.
review 2: I loved the way this book was written, with the links to what books the characters had previously been in. It is a great way to take advantage of technology, to get the authors other books out there and to provide the reader with a full background on the characters.Sadly, this was the end of the Jack Daniels series, but what a great ending it was. This book was action packed from the start, although quite unbelievable for the most part. It was the killers and their creativity that was unbelievable, as horrible as that sounds. It was that Jack could go through all she did while almost nine months pregnant. That was the thought that continually niggled at my brain while reading this.Overall, I enjoyed reading this entire series. And thanks to this book I now have several other books to add to my to-read list. less

lol Sam Adams... and great ending to the Jack Daniels Series.
Too random! Where did these characters come from?
Had to move on to the follow up book, lol.
Irritatingly extreme; formulaic X 10.
Going to miss Jack Daniels
