Review: Shaken

Shaken by J.A. Konrath

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lend this with Amazon Prime for free, as I needed a short break from [b:You're Next|10148340|You're Next|Gregg Hurwitz||15046649]. Gripping beginning.
And it is a short read.
A few different timelines are chapter wise swapped and tangled. As it is obvious from the beginning, that Jack (not Daniels the whole time) is alive till the last timeline (2010), not all of it is very suspenseful. But great writing. Be aware, quite a lot of detailed torture.
A few different serial killers pop up in the book, some playing major parts.
As with some of the other books by Konrath I read, a few unbelievable escape scenarios.
So 4 stars might be a bit much, but I recommend it, and read it out of order, which, given the different timelines was ok, I do not think it would have helped a lot read all Jack Daniels books in order to understand this one.
