A great collaboration between two hard-hitting writers of gritty thrillers featuring their iconic - and internally conflicted - heroes. Konrath's "Jack Daniels" and Lindsey's "Gavin English" make a fine team in this straightforward suspense story. A missing ring, a hostage situation, and humorous repartee all work together to provide some edge-of-your seat thrills typical of these Jack Daniels collaborations that are just now being released. Babysitting Money is a great addition to the series. ...more

Full of Humor

In this book, cowritten with Ken Lindsey, as usual when Jack is involved, nothing is ever simple. Even in a book of 49 pages (Kindle Unlimited is my best friend) stuff happens.

Funny. Love the dialogue between Gavin English and assistant, Kara. Jack Daniel's is called into this case. Shes a new mother and shouldn't be out there.
Three great characters in this short read. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because English smokes in a non smoke hotel room. I HATE cig smoke! He also trapped Kara in the smoke filled car. It was all funny, but yuck. I started with this book. Now I'm going to read Bk 1 and 2. Very entertaining!

A great novella! I love a Jack Daniels story and I'm really intrigued by the English character. I'll be picking up Ken Lindsey's work and having a peek in!

Great read!

A pretty good read.
I struggle to rate short stories. As much as I enjoy Jack Daniels books, I rated this one 4.4 stars instead of my usual 5 stars, simply because it was too short.
