Shot of Tequila


Shot of Tequila by J. A. Konrath

Sometime you choose a book from the way the cover looks, sometimes it’s the title.  In this case, the title caught my attention.  In addition, the mystery genre added to it.

Mobsters, crime bosses, loan sharks-the type of people you don’t double cross.  Tequila worked for them, collecting monies due.  Super Bowl is always a big pay day.  Who would dare to rob the boss of the biggest take of the year?  The butterfly tattoo on Tequila’s hand would make one think it’s Tequila, but he was somewhere else, or was he?

Detective Jacqueline Daniels, or Jack for short, has caught the case of a robbery gone wrong.  Quite a few dead bodies add to the case.  Work with Jack to determine who did what and why.  Is it Tequila or not?

Quite the cast of characters and a bit on the descriptive side when it comes to the detail in the violence, but overall a very good read.  This is part of the “Jack Daniels” series.
