Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure.

But hey, she's from Jersey.

Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. In To the Nines, her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word hunter.

In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life. The unforgettable characters, nonstop action, high-stakes suspense, and sheer entertainment of To the Nines define Janet Evanovich as unique among today's writers.

Don't forget to download the rest of the Stephanie Plum series.

    "The Best Since"

    This was absolutely the funniest book I have ever listened to. I am sitting at work and everyone in the other cubes hear this giggling coming from mine. I couldn't help myself. Lula is one of the best characters ever in a book. When the dogs were chasing her to the office, I thought I would fall out of my chair laughing. Lula is my favorite, but it is all good. The funny parts are the funniest and the dramatic parts are right on, too. I love the way Stephanie started going through Ranger's men like his cars. The girl has bad karma to get into the fixes she does. And as Steph would say, "it's not my fault".

    "Getting Ridiculous!"

    Better than sugarplums but still silly. I love Stephanie Plum and wouldn't think of missing a book in the series, so its worth hearing. I have to warn you however, the charaters are silly and the storyline is cartoon-ish. The sexual tension with Ranger and Morelli make up for its weaknesses!

    "Fun listening, as always"

    For just plain fun, it's hard to beat Stephanie Plum. Great naration, good story, hard to turn it off. She will have you sitting in the parking lot listening.

    "Better & Better!"

    I enjoyed this thoroughly! Janet Evanovich, the author and Lorlei King, the narrator, just keep getting better and better! Stephanie Plum is a fantastic protagonist; she says things that many of us don't dare! Everyone is so likeable, even most of the thugs. Keep them coming!

    "To the Nines deserves a Ten!"

    Wow! This was my first Stephanie Plum book and I was just blown away. Warning, though, the humor is adult -- the kind you'd find on HBO. I laughed out loud so many times - I even had to stop the recording once so I could finish laughing! The scene that was the most memorable was Lula being chased by the dog for the bacon that was in her purse, skirt up to her hips and...well, you'll just have to listen.

    Stephanie is one of those people that makes things happen. Bad things, funny things, but it is always dramatic. Bodyguards keep winding up incapacitated, her partner Lula keeps getting chased, people she's having lunch with even get shot. She inspires the worst insults from clients and the best loyalty from her crazy family. The emotional tension between her boyfriend Joe and her ex Ranger is worthy of a bald head from tearing hair out.

    In fact, I liked this book so much I can't wait to hear more. If you like Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone, you'll love Janet Evanvich's Stephanie Plum.

    "Good - but could be much better"

    I enjoyed my first Evanovich book enough to purchase this one, but just after the reading started I remembered what drove me up a wall with the first book. There are too many 'he said', 'Lulu said','I said', 'Ranger said's placed in the conversations. It would be hard enough to read this but to have them read to you is just about unbearable. The voice changes are enough to cue you on who said what and there are other ways in books to signal who is talking without all the 'so&so saids'. Evanovich could do better on this aspect.

    BUT that aside, I laughed until I cried over all of Plum's episodes and that more than made up for the overkill on 'I said'. Stephanie MUST be a blonde because this book strikes me as the epitome of the blonde joke, only funnier. I could just see Lulu sitting on the captured man. Stephanie being comic relief for Ranger's men and what she puts his guards thru is hilarious. I walk thru the grocery store listening while shopping and people MUST think I'm nuts. When Stephanie asked to see the stun gun you can just visualize what is going to happen. The men in the control room will laugh about that one for years.

    The description of Ranger makes the book worth listening to. He sounds so delicious and then there is Joe... what a delightful mess to be between. I'd root for one and then the other.

    "To The Nines"

    Janet Evanovich continues to write wonderful stories of Stephanie Plum that keep you entertained from start to finish. Her often times comical adventures come with modern day sleuth tales.

    To the Nines is wonderful

    "Great Entertainment"

    This Author has an absolutely wonderful sense of humor! That aside, it also has some depth, but not too much. It is just an easy, enjoyable listen, perfect to escape from a stressful day.

    "Funny and entertaining"

    I could not believe how much I liked this book! I had never heard of the author before, but am now a big fan. And the narrator is amazing. I'll be looking for audio books read by her, too. The story was engrossing, and hilarious. I cannot recommend it enough.
