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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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. **
