Kurzbeschreibung

Chicago cop Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels has chased, and caught, dozens of dangerous criminals over the course of her career. But she's about to meet her match.

When Jack wakes up in a storage locker, bound and gagged, she knows with chilling certainty who her abductor is.

He's called "Mr. K." More than two hundred homicides have been attributed to him. His victims have died in the most horrible ways imaginable. He's the essence of evil. Some think he's just an urban legend. But he's real. Jack has tangled with him twice in the past, and both times he managed to slip away.

Now Jack will finally have a chance to confront the maniac she's been hunting for over twenty-five years. Unfortunately, it won't be on her terms. In less than two hours, Mr. K is going to do to Jack what he's done to countless others. And Jack is going to learn that sometimes the good guys don't win...

Autorenkommentar

When I wrote Shaken, I wanted to take Jack Daniels back to the very beginning of her career, to show how she started out. Though this is the seventh book in the series, Shaken actually comes first chronologically. It isn't necessary to read any of my prior books to enjoy Shaken, and if readers haven't tried any of my thrillers before, this is a great place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First time Konrath Reader 27. Oktober 2010
Von travis pierce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent mystery/suspense/thriller! This book is great. I've never read a Konrath book before; I'm not a fan responding to everything he writes as `best ever'. It's really that good of a novel. It's fast paced, suspenseful and funny.
Yeah, it's part of a series. Not having read the rest of the series didn't impact my enjoyment at all (though I will likely be reading the rest at some future point!).

There are a couple of caveats. 1) Murder by torture is a significant part of the book. If this bothers you then you should read something else. 2) The main version of the story purposefully jumps between 3 separate (though interrelated) events that occur in distinct time periods. This is very well done and builds suspense on multiple levels as well as showing the character's development over decades of `story time'. The digital versions come with a chronological version as well. I strongly recommend reading the author's main version. If you find it confusing or just can't stand the non-linear narrative then go to the alternate. 3) Some of the reviews contain spoilers. STOP READING REVIEWS! BUY THE BOOK NOW!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The penultimate Jack Daniels Story Novel is well worth your time 26. Oktober 2010
Von Larry Zieminski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an exciting, suspenseful story from J.A. Konrath. Winding down his Jack Daniels series, this book puts the female heroine in some very painful, dangerous spots. I really enjoyed the way it was told, shifting back and forth through 3 different time periods, telling 3 stories that may (or may not) be connected.

This is only the second Jack Daniels book I've read (the other was Fuzzy Navel), so I can't speak towards whether or not it stays to the Jack Daniels formula, but I found the humor to be less outrageous than Fuzzy Navel, but more realistic. For example, in Fuzzy Navel there were life and death scenes with characters cracking jokes...that doesn't happy here. The humor comes more from the characters and how they interact.

The ending may strike some as a letdown, as it seems to sacrifice the end of this story in order to set up the next (and last) book in the series. I was first unhappy with it, but the more I thought about it and the way the story was told, I decided that it worked for me. I'm eagerly awaiting the final volume. In the mean time, I'm going to go back through the earlier books and catch up on what I've missed.

Full Disclaimer - I received an advance review copy of the book for free, in exchange for promising to review the book. I did not promise a favorable review, nor was my opinion of the book slanted because I received it for free. I would have gladly paid for the book (indeed, I had it pre-ordered on Amazon before I received my free copy....that money is now going towards buying the earlier volumes in the series).

2.0 von 5 Sternen I feel cheated! 4. November 2010
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read all of the Jack Daniels series. I have also read the other books written by this author, including his books by Jack Kilborn. I have enjoyed all of his books to date... except Shaken! I enjoyed it until it ended at 50% of the book and then it made a sales pitch for an author I have not read. Apparently the conclusion to this book with be written with this unknown author to finish this series. That might have been ok, if this book hadn't been what I consider a cheat. The content of the book only goes to 50% of the kindle book... the last 50% of the book is the same material in chronological order. But it's the SAME material. I feel that this approach really cheapened the whole experience of this anticipated new addition to the Jack series. I appreciate 'cliff hangers' as well as the next. However, I have never felt like a book left in a cliff hanger was done solely to get me to buy another author's books. This is a pitiful arrangement between two authors that leaves a bad taste in my mouth about Shaken and the series author, whom I had great interest in before this stunt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A three-pronged Jack Daniels thriller; Konrath creates another winner 27. Oktober 2010
Von S. Alexander Hicks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The 7th, and next-to-last, Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels novel is an excellent read filled with action, suspense, and heart-felt emotion. It takes place in three time periods, and Jack is the focus in all of them: present day, three years ago, and twenty-one years ago. I read the book in its intentional out-of-sequence composition, and it was clearly understandable that way. No need to read the chronological version unless you want to do so.

While there is certainly no need to have read the previous Jack Daniels books or stories before reading this one, there are some delightful references that give an extra bump to the enjoyment factor if you have. Again, not important, just additional hints or explanations that ring bells for those of us who have read the entire series.

I've been reading Konrath's works (both under his name and his pseudonyms) for years now, and while I have enjoyed all of them, SHAKEN shows how much he has grown as a skilled writer over the years. His action is even more vividly described. His descriptions are taught and revealing without extra wording. His pacing is more deliberate and swift. His characters' emotions ring even truer than they already did.

I plan to also purchase the paperback when it is published. I actually wish there was going to be a hardcover, too, since I have all the Jack Daniels novels in hardcover. Regardless, it's an excellent book in any format, and that certainly includes this Kindle edition.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good until you reach the end 2. Januar 2011
Von Mike Hale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm glad I bought the Kindle edition of this book because had I bought the hardcover I would now be repairing the hole in my wall made when I threw this book against the wall in disgust at reading the "ending".

I had not read a J.A. Konrath book before this one. I liked the characters and overall thought it was well written, despite what I felt was some forced and awkward dialog.

It all fell apart for me at the very end though. I won't spoil it for you, but it was one of those WTF Out-of-left-field endings that leaves you just shaking your head. It was done just to set up the next Jack Daniels book and for me, ruined the entire read.
