Bloody Mary by J.A. Konrath
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Start with a tough but vulnerable Chicago cop. Add a hyperactive cat, an ailing mother, a jealous boyfriend, a high-maintenance ex-husband, and a partner in the throes of a mid-life crisis.
Stir in a psychopath littering the city with body parts. Mix with equal parts humor and suspense, and enjoy Bloody Mary--the second novel in the funny, frightening world of Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels.
Join Jack as she struggles to repair her train wreck of a personal life while tracking down and convicting one of the scariest serial killers in recent memory--a killer for whom getting caught is only the beginning...
I actually enjoyed this book more than the first. Although I figured out who the bad guy was early on it was still a great read. The gore factor was not quite as graphic in this book and there were several laugh out loud moments involving Mr. Friskers. Jack is a great main character and I can not wait to read about her next case.
