Catch a professional assassin: top priority. Find a failure-to-appear and collect big bucks: top score. How she’ll pull it all off: top secret.
Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’ dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.
To top things off, Ranger - resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation - has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.
Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list - but that’s top secret.

I liked some of earlier books but this was a boring and silly re-hash of old stuff
all of it
I felt sorry for her having to read this
I don't really care
I love the book!! I have read all of them I'm just starting to listen to them...... I thought the narrator did a great job. She added to the enjoyment of the book. I highly recommend this book.
If you are going to read this series, read from the first novel. Don't listen to the audio until Lorelei King becomes the narrator.
This was a good addition to the series, it didn't add much to the characters development but wound up being an amusing, suspenseful novel. As in the last few novels we are learning a bit more about Ranger's past and how it comes to haunt him. Stephanie gets caught up and everyone else winds up taking prat-falls all over the book. I really enjoyed it, and found a few places where I had to catch my breath from laughing so hard.
As I have listened to all the others this one is a fun romp.
Same formula as her other Stephanie Plum numbers series
Love the ability to know which character is by her voice.
I did as I drove to BC from Portland Oregon
Yes. All the books thus far were pleasant stories.
Lorelei has these character down pat.
It filled the day with a mellow easy listening story.
The stories themselves seem to follow the same lines. Stephanie screws up, Ranger saves her, Morelli is just waiting and Lula shots someone. Different day, same scenarios. Its basically a soap opera.
The narration was mediocre for Plum and really poor for all male parts. Enough so that I almost did not listen and was going to just buy the book to read. There was almost no Jersey accent and the men all sounded whiney or sick. Did not make me think of Ranger at all!
Love this series!! It's hard to wait for the next installment. Perfection in the story, narrator, and humor! More please!
