Mack's Bar is one of those nice, friendly places where everybody knows your name. That's great when someone's buying you a round, but not so hot when you find yourself atop a list of murder suspects--with your fingerprints on the bloody knife!

Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton is a Milwaukee bar owner with a nose for trouble--literally. A neurological glitch has left her with extra perceptive senses. So when she stumbles upon a dead body in the alley behind the bar--the same spot where her own father was shot eight months earlier--she can tell right away there's something fishy in the air. The lead detective thinks there's a link between the two deaths, and he'll need Mack's help to sniff out the murderer amid the crowd of eccentric regulars. But when all the evidence points to her as the most likely culprit, it could be an early last call for Mack--and celebratory cocktails for a killer.

Includes drink recipes

5.0 von 5 Sternen This new series packs a fantastic punch! 6. August 2013
Von Cozy Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Murder on the Rocks is the first book in the new series, Mack's Bar Mysteries, by Allyson K. Abbott. Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton is still recovering from the shock of her father "Big Mack" being murdered ten months previously. She's taken over her father's bar, Mack's Bar. Early one morning she comes across the dead body of Ginny, her father's girlfriend. With Mack looking like the prime suspect in a murder investigation, she (along with her friends at the Bar) set about trying to solve the mystery before she (or one of them) ends up behind prison bars.

New series alert! The publishers seem to be releasing more and more new series, and it can be kind of daunting for readers to know which one of them is worth their time. There are six new series being published in the month of August in the cozy mystery genre, by publishers Penguin and Kensington. So where should you start? With the Mack's Bar Mysteries of course!

Murder on the Rocks literally had everything I like in a new series - interesting location (Mack's Bar is certainly not a boring place with both regulars and newcomers visiting every day), intriguing characters (brothers Frank and Joe Signiorello were my personal favorites, along with nerdy, computer hacker, looking-for-a-man Cora), a tantalizing mystery (not one but two deaths!) and a likeable heroine.

Let me tell you a little about Mack. She was raised by her father, as her mother died shortly after she was born. She has walked the rooms of Mack's Bar since a tot, and has a unique disorder. She has Synesthesia. This is a neurological condition where she can smell noises or taste and hear color. Mack tries to tap into her Synesthesia to discover who killed both her father and Ginny.

Along with the scrumptious Detective Duncan Albright this made for a fantastic first mystery. I'm was absolutely captivated by not just Mack's illness, which I'd never heard of before, but also by the mystery and the local history of Al Capone having stayed in Milwaukee at one time.

I highly recommend giving Murder on the Rocks a read. For a first book in a new series it sure packs a punch, and as a reward when you are finished there are some yummy drink recipes at the back!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting cozy mystery, loved the characters! 6. August 2013
Von Miranda Owen - Veröffentlicht auf
This is Book 1 in the "A Mack's Bar Mystery". The female main character - Mack - was easy to sympathize with and like right away. She has a condition called synesthesia. Apparently, this is it's a condition that affects the senses so that they don't respond normally. The person will taste or see sounds, hear or feel smells, etc. It was a little difficult to understand at first but I found it very interesting. The most useful aspects of her condition came into play with Mack being able to tell when something has been changed in a room or an object moved. Since she's able to tell if something's "off" when somebody's speaking, she's also a human lie detector. I also liked that there was a double mystery to solve - the death of Mack's father months before, and the more recent murder of Ginny. Technically there was a third mystery as well - the sabotage of Mack's bar. All the mysteries kept me interested up until the very end. I enjoyed Mack's regular bar patrons as secondary characters and suspects. I loved the relationship and potential love interest between Mack and Duncan Albright. So many times in mysteries with a female sleuth and male cop love interest, the cop will come off as very condescending. That was not the case in this mystery. Albright was a great guy and listened to Mack and took her and her abilities seriously. I hope their relationship continues and is able to progress. The ending and solution to the mystery was satisfying and believable. I found this book highly entertaining and look forward to the next book in the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Facinating Murder Investigation Tool 9. September 2013
Von L. Rigod - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When I began reading this debut novel in the series 'A Mack's Bar Mystery,' I did not realize it would be about a person with Synaesthesia, a type of tandem mixing of the five senses within the brain. Our sleuth, bar owner, Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton of Milwaukee, is challenged by having this condition. I had first learned of Synaesthesia, or Synesthesia (as the book spells it,) on a television news program. I found it fascinating and to see it put as a sleuthing tool on this murder case was capturing to my attention. This is the luck of having an Author who is an Emergency Nurse in life as well as a talented author!

Mack, to her dismay, goes out to the alley behind her bar and next to the dumpster finds a dead body. She rises the cardboard covering but can see only her mixed signals from the stress and shock. Just ten months earlier she had found her Father shot in the same place...could they be connected?

When the police arrive all is chaos and Detective Duncan Albright, handsome and sounding like melted sweet chocolate, at least to Mack that is, arrives at the same theory. Of course the most likely suspect is Mack, herself, and it behooves her to aid the on-going investigation.

Detective Duncan joins the bar staff to see if he can garner an insiders knowledge, using the theory that a perpetrator often tries to infiltrate the crime scene to see what the police know. Also, Duncan wants to see if he can use Mack's abilities to sort out the killer.

As I earlier wrote, this book kept my attention and I found myself fascinated by the possibilities. It was written in a way that a lay person could grow and learn about Synaesthesia and imagine how it would be useful and scary to have this condition.

The story was very well written and I grew invested not only in Mack and Duncan, but the many staff and customers 'regulars' of the bar as well. Especially bar patron Cora and her side interests...Oh my! The recipes for fascinating cocktails at the ending of the book were an added bonus. I hope the next book in the series has Mack changing the food offered to a gastro-pub. What fun that would be.

Do try out this book. Men, as well would be fascinated by the solid mystery. There is a fascinating ending that all will enjoy!

It was okay...had to keep reminding myself to finish it. I'm not real interested in how to make a cocktail, which seemed to be on every other page...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed, could have been better 11. Juli 2014
Von jspence - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really, really , really wanted to like this book. I love books that include uncommon 'disorders' and how they can be applied to real life but this was not it. First let me say that if you have ANY knowledge of criminal investigation (and no I am not talking CSI) then you know that a detective is going to procure a warrant to search anything if they have a true belief that the person is a viable suspect, otherwise just giving permission is not going to hold up in a court of law. i.e. "I didn't understand" blah blah blah. Second, the police do NOT have the power to shut down a business or threat of same because a Victim was found BEHIND said business, otherwise why did they not shut down all of the other businesses that shared the alley where victim was found? I realize that laws differ from state to state but in my state you are required to register if you are a bartender and that includes fingerprinting, so any of the 'bartenders' should have already had their fingers printed and in a data base. My last biggest complaint with this was a total betrayal on her part of a person whom her father hired and turned out to be an ex-con. She didn't even give him the benefit of the doubt, which when you have known someone for a year or more I think you should have, the author just used the usual platitudes of 'everyone in prison is innocent'. Apparently this author has not heard of 'The innocence project' trying to clear people who have spent years in prison for crimes they did in fact NOT commit. I think it would have made for a better story had she taken Gary's side and created more tension between her and the Detective. OVERALL, I think this author has really good potential but should really do more research into aspects that they know nothing about (convictions, police procedure, civlil rights, etc.) and what about the fact that her father hired him and later she says 'I know my father would never do that" (not the actual dialogue). I also think a better editor to catch contradictions would be in order. I'm disappointed.
Adding to...just fyi I knew who the bad guy was and what this was about from the time she found the book in her fathers nightstand and I think that anyone who spent a summer reading every Nancy Drew book there was in 1972 would have figured this out very early on, I think that is what bothered me most about her betrayal to Gary.
