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.

    "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.

    "What can I say? A stupid book!"

    Grating voice of the reader, poorly read and written.

    "Mediocre at best."

    predictable, somewhat funny at times. I'd keep looking.

    "stereotyping, weak plotting, caricaturish reading"

    Aspiring writers are often advised to write about what they know. Assuming the author took this advice, everything she knows about New Jersey, Italian-Americans, Las Vegas, manufacturing, police work and officers, criminals, and psychopathology came from Hollywood and TV. Next time, some research away from the screen would be wise.

    Although part of the stereotyping may come from the narrator-- who overacts each of the different voices-- the author does not miss an opportunity to make a person's ethnicity stand in for their personality. From the Italian grandmother who sees visions to the pushy Indian mother trying to marry off her daughter to the overweight black sidekick, you will get no more sense of who these people are from the book than you did in this sentence. Oh, and New Jersey is tough and gritty, a place where a 'minor mob boss' can coexist peacefully with the authorities. Puh-lease.

    The plot is there, but just barely. Our hero gets mixed up in some bad business, chases a few dead ends, suspects (for no good reason) the wrong person, and survives in the end. No spoilers there, I hope! I'd say 60% of the text is filler describing the characters going to the mall, doing random tasks (locking the car with the remote control-- no kidding? Wow!), being sexually aroused, or going about their jobs until it's dark enough to fit the next plot point.

    The book is apparently part of series about the main character. The author does provide enough history and context to the unitiated. I did somehow care about her a bit, too.

    There is some sex and (ooh!) orgasms. If that is what you are looking for, you don't need to suffer through the rest of the book to get it. If you want a mystery, you _really_ don't want this. If you want good writing, no luck here.

    "Enough Already!!"

    I tried listening to this mess, but the exaggerated voices were just too much! The false accents and high-pitched squeally voices were annoying and detracted from the story. I've been a member of Audible for over two years, and this book was by far the worse book that I've ever listened to. Maybe if it had been read by a better narrator, I could have finished the book, but enough was enough!!
