Things That Go Jack In The Night

September 11-15, 2023 Virtual Book Tour
In the English language, there are a few, very special words that can function as nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. One word goes further, creating new words from old.
That word is JACK.
The brandy distilled from hard cider was the first applejack, the word now synonymous with a children’s cereal. There is the nefarious one-eyed jack of playing card fame. Animals from the jackdaw to the jackrabbit to the elusive jackalope roam all the ranges. There are the ever growing number of people named Jack, birth named or nicknamed, heroes to villains. The way the word “jack” is used in the English language is truly unique, inventive, and too numerous for us to count.
For your puzzle solving pleasure, Mysteries to Die For presents: Things That Go Jack in the Night.
Pepper jack cheese. Lumberjack. Wolfman Jack. Jack be Nimble. One-eyed Jack. Jackass. Jacking Off. Jackalope. Jack-in-the-box. Jackknife. Jackpot. Audio jack.
Twelve stories arranged for you to deduce the truth. Twelve “jacks” that should definitely not be taken at face value. It’s a race between you and the detective to find the killer amid the jack in the night.
What a kick. I have enjoyed listening to this podcast on my daily walk. While a variety of content is offered, I have really enjoyed the Jack stories. Each one is written by a different author so I was introduced to some I had not known before. It's a live recording and about half way through the short story, TG and her son Jack discuss solving the mystery. It was fun to think of my own ideas and compare them to what I was hearing. Near the end of the podcast, TG shares some information about the particular Jack the short story featured. I heard some interesting facts about pepper jack cheese and rhymes about Jack, for example.
This is a fun podcast and I recommend it. You'll hear stories from a variety of authors and have a chance to solve the mystery too.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
