HARPERCOLL
The latest "entertaining," "tangy," and "hilarious" Jack Daniels mystery from Anthony, Macavity, and Gumshoe Award finalist J.A. Konrath

In Whiskey Sour, Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels hunted down a killer dubbed "The Gingerbread Man." In Bloody Mary, she busted a psychopath with a penchant for dismemberment. In Rusty Nail, it was a serial killer with a doozy of a family tree. And now, in Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who's poisoning the city's food supply. Can she catch him -- and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal -- without destroying both her reputation and her sanity

Her dead father may not be dead after all. And a brilliant sociopath known as the Chemist is poisoning Chicago's food supply, killing hundreds of people.

But how do you catch someone who is always in disguise, who ingeniously spreads toxins in restaurants, grocery stores, and fast-food places without leaving any clues? Time is running out. The Chemist has something big planned - something really big - and Jack has to push herself to the limits of her capabilities, or else everyone she knows and everything she holds dear will be destroyed. In Dirty Martini, Jack faces her toughest adversary yet: a sicko who wants to murder an entire city. Can she catch him - and decide whether to accept boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal - without destroying both her reputation and her sanity?

A man in disguise has been visiting restaurants, grocery stores, and fast food places, ingeniously spreading a deadly toxin. Chicago's newest criminal calls himself The Chemist, and he has murder on his mind. When Jack finds Latham unconscious on the floor of their apartment withtoxin-laced takeout on the counter, it looks like someone has plans for her. Add to that her dead father who actually isn't dead, her favorite partner, Herb Benedict, contemplating a transfer out of the police station, and a plot to poison all the cops in Chicago, and Jack is in for a scary ride.--From publisher description.
Lieutenant Jacqueline Daniels faces her most challenging adversary in the form of a deranged perpetrator who is poisoning Chicago's food supply, a case that is complicated by her boyfriend Latham's surprise proposal.

This is #4. Fast. Action packed. Fun read. Move over Mr. Woods. I believe you have some competition in this genre.

I love this series by J.A. Konrath!! It has great characters especially Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels, the protagonist/main character. This book is filled with humor and believable, interesting villians. Highly recommend if you like a great mystery with fun/funny moments.

This is a good series that is easy to read. I will have to warn others that the content can sometimes be a bit graphic so if you have a soft stomach it may be hard to take at times.
