    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    If you could sum up Notorious Nineteen in three words, what would they be?

    Just good fun.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Janet Evanovich? Why or why not?

    It is always good sometimes to just kick back, laugh and enjoy a Stephanie Plum novel. No stress, no fuss and you don't have to do a lot of heavy thinking. All you have to do is follow her from one burning car to the next and enjoy the witty dialog. Just keep them coming.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Lorelei King's performance is always hilarious. She adds so much to any book she reads. I sometimes wonder how she is able to be so on target with all the voices.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Lookout! Here comes Stephanie.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    The narration just made an exceptional story more exciting. I was so drawn into the characters with their own personnel issues that look so presentable on the outside. Nothing is what it seems.
