This award winning 6000 word short story, originally published in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, features Konrath's stalwart Homicide cop Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels (Whiskey Sour, Shaken) in a puzzler of a mystery.

A body is found in a man's living room, the doors all locked from the inside. The victim had apparently been dropped from a great height.

How did he die? Who killed him?

Daniels and her partner, Herb Benedict, follow a trail of ingenious clues to solve this classic whodunnit. Are you clever enough to solve it first?

REVIEW:
What an interesting little story!
I love this series and the main character, Jacqueline Daniels. Following her on the cases she works on is really something. She is sharp and doesn't miss much at all. It's never more apparent as it is in this one.
This case she is on is quite unique too. One I won't forget any time soon. It had me turning the page like a madwoman. I had to know how it ended.
Can't wait to read more from this series. As you can see, I have read them out of whack a bit, but that doesn't really matter. Each story is different, being a different case for her to work on. So they can be read any way you want to.
Definitely one of my favorite authors now!


5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
