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.

    "Lightweight entertainment"

    I found this book to be amusing, and the plot to be somewhat obvious. Perhaps I'm spoiled by my enjoyment of Michael Connelly and Tom Clancy - suspenseful, detailed plots that catch you up and drag you along. I found Janet Evanovich's work to be uninspired and cute. The characters are more caricatures.

    "Come on guys -- it was just for fun!"

    I stumbled upon this book in Audible and the Trenton, NJ locale caught my eye. Trenton is about 30 miles from our house (though I have hardly ever been there) so I thought, "Sounds like fun!"

    It was! Original characters? Clever plot? Fine writing? Not really (sorry, Janet). Nevertheless, the book was fun. The fun came, in no small part I think, from the narration of Lorelei King. I've read the criticism of her elsewhere in these reviews but I have to strongly disagree. I thought Lorelei sounded like she was having fun -- so was I. I wish this book had been available in an unabridged format.

    "To the Twos?"

    Early on in the book, I was thinking a one star rating, but the witty humor bumped it up one star - actually one and a half a stars - but no half star ratings are available, so I rounded down. The plot was not very elaborate, and in some places had me saying - "wait a minute - what about........." or "I'm not quite buying that - to far fetched......", but most importantly, I thought there was little character development. We 'saw' and 'heard' what the characters did and said, but little about who they really were or maybe why. The dialogue was mostly guarded - rhetorical, with little insight into only one or two minds. There was ample opportunity to do that, but for whatever reason, the author chose not to. In some respects, I felt like I was reading a screenplay - a movie script - rather than a novel. On the other hand, I just finished Ender's Game - a brilliant novel, so maybe my standards were set quite high. Retrospectively however, I'm still not going above 2 1/2 stars on this one.

    "Too cute for its own good"

    An 'action-mystery-romance' novel, it's way too cute for its own good. Downright silly sometimes, and the action gets a bit slapstick. The characters are also more stereotypical than real. I kept wondering why the heroine couldn't figure out who the bad guy was (it was pretty obvious) and why I was still listening.

    "Low brow farce"

    This is classified as comic thriller mystery. Unfortunately, it's actually farce, yet rarely funny. The mystery is more of a side element to the ridiculous characters and "episodes." I'd call it a waste of time, considering all the better titles that are available.

    "To the Trash"

    I've never written a review before, but in this case, I must warn my fellow listeners! If an entire book can be written without any research, then I think this is it. I found the storyline boring and unimaginative. It lacks any interesting dialogue. In addition, this narrator suffers through the characters as if she is saying the same thing over and over (which happens when the narrator has not read before narrating). I'm sorry if this sounds so harsh, but, of course, it is only my opinion.

    "To The Nines"

    I listened to this book mainly because of the NJ connection. At one point, I accidently skipped an entire section. When I realized, I didn't bother going back because it really didn't matter. Predictable, annoying dialoge, and uninteresting characters make this an easily forgetable listen.
