Top Secret Twenty-One: A Stephanie Plum Novel, Book 21 | [Janet Evanovich]

Top Secret Twenty-One: A Stephanie Plum Novel, Book 21

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A fun story badly read"

    The 21st installment of the misadventures of Stephanie Plum is another piece of mind candy.
    Very unfortunate that the narrator and her attempt at voices is as annoying as a back up on the NJTP, and as refreshing as a deep breath on the Pulaski Skyway. Time to return to a previous narrator.

    "Time to decide and move up"

    After the girt books then nothing changes. She uses Ranger and her friends to help her but yet she puts them down. Their Is a racist overtone. Morelia is not a great cop but he us Italian because on more than one occasion Ranger has saved him. She only uses Ranger but Morelia is her boyfriend but it's Ranger that takes care of her. I love Lula but how many times does she keep referring to her as a big black ex whore. She is a nympho and Morelli is an ass. Ranger saves her but she runs to Morelli. It's time for Ranger to have an interest that will make her make a decision. How bad is that she gives Morelli information to solve his cases. She is a user she is the bounty agent no gun and an idiot. Let Moreli save her he says are you hurt and nothing Ranger needs yo let Morelli save her if he can. Not. Please let the series grow and keep Lorelei she us the best for ranger, Lula and grandma love her so out there.

    "Another Good Installment in the Series"

    Janet Evanovich does not disappoint with another fun story line. And, Lorelei King does an amazing job in keeping us entertained and brings each of the characters come alive.

    "ranger"

    I love this whole series but love the ones focused on ranger even more. He facinates and frustrates me all at the same time.

    "Instant Deja Vu."

    I have read all of the Stephanie Plum books. They are funny, if a bit predictable - there will be donuts, pizza, Ranger Looking Hot, Morelli Looking Hot, Grandma will at some point be packing a 45 in her big handbag - but still a fun read. But this time I swear I thought I'd read this book before - wait, wasn't the annoying Briggs guy blown up in earlier books? Didn't a group of old men start getting bumped off one by one in another book? It felt like the author put all her earlier characters and plot elements into a bag, pulled out a random handful, and arranged them into a story. The characters are all caught in a time warp. I hate to say I'm done with this series, but I think I'm done. It was definitely not worth spending a credit.
