Dirty Martini - J.A. Konrath
Dirty Martini is the fourth Jack Daniels Mystery. It stands all by itself though. This book is $3.99 for the kindle, but free for Amazon prime members. Murder by poison may be less bloody, but you're just as dead. Chicago police Lieutenant Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels isn't having a good day. Her partner is transferring out of homicide and she gets called away in the middle of her boyfriend's proposal. Jack's day gets a lot worse before it gets better. The Chemist has started poisoning people at random, or so it seems. Jack is put in charge of the investigation and the Chemist takes that personal. Jack has to escape his attempts to killer her, and catch him before he wipes out most of Chicago's finest. This is a great detective story, with a heroine and villain who keep it interesting all the way to the end. Very highly recommended.
