I don't see how anyone familiar with Konrath's style could NOT love this one! The character of Chief Cole was new to me, but he fit into this story perfectly. As for the title.....pick this one up and read for yourselves.... ;)

This was a very short story. The Jack Daniels series has been one of my favorites, but this book did not even begin to match the quality of the books by JA Konrath. Skip this one.

Bernard Schaffer and Joe Konrath team up for a winning combination in this short novella, a richly told, tightly constructed thriller that is both witty and wry and edge-of-your seat exciting. Police Chief Cole Clayton from Small Town, PA heads to Chicago to find the daughter of a friend who has been kidnapped and sold by the Russian Mafia. Homicide Detective, Lt. Jack Daniels knows the territory and gets more than she bargained for when she assists the out-of-towner whom she mistakenly thinks i ...more

Cheese Wrestling was kind of entertaining, but there's a point in the middle where it felt like a scene was deleted or maybe the story line was changed and someone forgot to fix some things. Also, it's pretty obvious this one wasn't written by Konrath. Jack's voice is completely different. She vacillates between acting like a hormonal teenager and acting like a copy of a copy of Jack Daniels. If you're a fan of Jack's, you're probably not going to like this story very much.

This was an interesting short story. I never thought I'd read a book with a main character named Poop, and now I have. I've also learned something truly disgusting that is apparently true. You'll have to read the story yourself to find out what that is. It's a good short story. I didn't love it; I mean I would never read it a second time. Since it's short, the story's investigation moves quickly. Check it out.

Seems sacrilegious to give Jack less than 5

Loved the cheese out if this book! I always love Jack Daniels. The problem was it was so short. To stretch it out they added two alternate versions. Those sucked. They sucked cheese.

Another hardboiled detective collaboration teaming Daniels and Cole to solve an inter-jurisdictional crime. No dead bodies but good teamwork and incompetent criminals.

Jack Daniels stories are always interesting. This one was interesting, weird and short. Next time I will check number of pages before I buy.

Fairly humorous story.
As always, I love these books; long or short, I don't care.
