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.

While it's true that this series has become pretty repetitive, but I enjoyed this book more than the last few.
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.
Yes , dedicated followers will enjoy the series although it is getting a bit stale chose someone already Stephanie plum.
Typical Stephanie plum style. Grandma mazur breathes life into this editin.
Oh yes she is the voice of Stephanie plum. And the whole list of chracters.
It makes me laugh and want to eat cake, or what Stephanie is eating.

she has the best voices for all

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.
Ranger used the "M" word! While Joe was stuck doing things with his family, Stephanie got to go on an adventure with Ranger.
Stephanie is realizing that Joe is the white sheep of his family. If she has children with him, she will be raising Morelli boys that usually grow up to be, if not serial killers, drunken slobs. Life with Ranger would be more interesting. Of course on of Ranger's cars blew up while in her care. Predictable, but I would be disappointed if it did not happen.
She has all the character voices down. They all sound like different people who would live in Trenton New Jersey.
I did find myself sitting in parking lots waiting for a point in the story where if could bear to break off listening.
The first books in the series were darker, but I like things like Lula morphing from a tragic, abused street walker into a comic side kick. I am rooting for Stephanie to realize that she really does not want to be a house wife, and Ranger to realize that he needs and wants Stephanie for more than entertainment.
I enjoy mysteries, thrillers, fantasy mysteries with romance and of course toss in some laughs and what a listen!
Without a doubt! Lorelei King is a master narrator and her version of unique voices for each character is very enjoyable to listen to.
The story line with Stephanie and Briggs was down right laugh-out loud -funny and when the vibrating Chihuahuas were introduced it was hilarious. The story was excellent and very entertaining. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
Without a doubt! Lorelei King is a master narrator and her version of unique voices for each character is outstanding.
If it were possible I would have listened to this book all at once. I enjoy audible books so much that I've developed a habit of turning the TV off and listening to a book.
I found this audible book terrific with a good story and the characters very entertaining as usual. This book I have to admit is one of my new "favorites".
love this listen... huge plum fan .... ready for the next one..... lula your the best.....
No. I could have read the book faster.
This series is cute. It's a light book, I.e. Beach book
Took longer to listen than to read
