    Konrath has a style all his own, mixing humor with horror and all the elements of a good suspense or thriller novel into a police procedural. The horror (just as with his Joe Kilborn pen name) isn't in-your-face. It's subtle, often implied leaving a lot to your imagination, yet no less horrific. If you've read and liked any of the previous books in the Jack Daniels series you'll like Shaken.

    One of the things I especially liked was seeing Jack, Herb (her current partner) and Harry (her first partner) change over time. Much of the earliest story line gives a glimpse into the how and why for many of the qualities the characters had for the majority of the series.

    Loved It!

    Konrath uses a different format for the seventh book in his Jack Daniels series. Instead of a linear story, he gives us glimpses of the present, weaving that in with two separate timelines from Jack Daniels' past. I have to say that I am not normally a fan of this type of out of sequence writing but Konrath handles it masterfully. He ties the events together perfectly, giving a seamless transition from past to present.

    This is Konrath at his best. Shaken had me riveted from beginning to end!

    ** I was fortunate to receive an advanced read from Mr. Konrath, though that had no bearing on my review. **
