J.A. Konrath is brutal. He can dream up some of the sickest, most twisted things I’ve ever seen in print (maybe a little bit of influence from Albert Fish here?). Yet it’s not overwhelming, tempered by Jack’s competency and sense of humor. These books keep me engaged, and there was a twist at the end of this one that I didn’t see coming until it was upon me.
- “I’d recommend Rusty Nail to fans of the genre but I myself will not be reading more of Konrath’s work unless he scales back on the horror.” — Bibliophile’s Corner
- “Rusty Nail continues Konrath’s display of deeply dedicated and well-documented research.” — Horrorview
- “Jack Daniels proves almost as good company as her namesake, and if you stay up all night with her, you can still go to work in the morning and there is no hangover.” — Mystery*File
