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 )
I have listened to all of the Stephanie Plum books that are narrated by Loreli King. She's a great narrator! I have been waiting for the unabridged version of the first few in this hilarious series and was intrigued by CJ Critt. It took some getting used to, but it wasn't bad. She doesn't have the variety and range of voices that King does, but I'll buy the next one.
the narrator is excellent. I'm from New Jersey and her voice for Stephanie's mother is so spot on. she only changes her voice a little for the characters, it's very subtle.
some narrators try too hard and it's jarring.
I've read most of the series, so i knew i'd like the book, but this narrator really, truly makes it perfect.
this is a light, funny mystery series. great for cleaning or long drives, but not appropriate for children.
This was better than the 1st book! Fun characters! Reader does a superb job with all of the characters, especially with the grandmother! Authors descriptive writing takes you to where you can mentally see all that is going on and so much of it makes you laugh. The plot of the book was most certainly not a 'same ol', it was different and entertaining. I recommend this book to all mystery crime fans!
These books are humorous and fun! I'm a fan because of the great characters who are well written. I can see them in my head.
I read these books years ago and loved them so was happy to find them on Audible, but this narrator is terrible! She only reads the first 4 books though, so I'll be pushing through to book 5! Don't give up on the Series due to narrator.
Yes, C.J. Critt really brings the story to life with her seamless reading and voices.
Grandma - there's nobody like grandma. She a feisty old version of Stephanie.
Grandma shoots off her .45 and then does a Clint Eastwood impersonation asking the bad guys if they feel lucky.
I thought the story was hilarious.
