Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

"The first must-read of the new year." (Kirkus Reviews )
Great author, amazing story, super talented story teller.
Hilarious, entertaining and keeps you interested.
Love her series.

This started out for me as a series to read simply as research for my own work. I am only two books in, but I am a fan. This is just simple, plain old fun. Stephanie is at it again, and this time, her grandma is the co-star, but she steals the scene every time she shows up. Easily my favorite character.
Summer is coming, and if you want some mindless entertainment with wit and charm, this is the book series to grab.
Critt has me hooked with her Grandma voice!
I LOVED listening to Lori Petty narrate the first book... but unfortunately she doesn't read the unabridged versions, which I prefer. C.J. just doesn't do it, like Lori does the Brooklyn accent! I could have really gotten hooked on this series after listening to the first book with Lori Narrating. But if C.J. does all the unabridged, then I'll probably not continue the series. The Abridged versions are way too short and cut too much out.
Makes me laugh when the Grandmother gets involved in sluthing
Stephanie Plum and her adventures in recovery agent, then using her grandmother to help. Too funny how it all ends up.
The NJ accent in the characters are believable.
When the grandmother looks through Stephany Plum's pocket book.
Almost makes me want to try to be a recovery agent for the money.
My first Evanivich series was Fox and O'Hare, which I loved. I thought I would try the Plum series. This book was meh!
