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 )
CJ Critt is a great narrator for this series! She really makes each personality come to life. I enjoy having some of the same characters surface again in this second book of the Stephanie Plum series.
It has to be Stephanie Plum. She just plays such a dunder-head of a personality. In the part she plays as a Bounty Hunter, it is just so darn funny the way she plays the part. In reality I would think someone who would be as dense a part as she plays ,would surely get knocked off, but she always comes out on top with the help of all of her awesomely funny friends. I love it!
Like I said earlier. She has a knack for creating the characters in a way that they really come to life in your mind.s eye
Yes. If I had the time to do that, I certainly would. great read!!
I really like this series. Janet Evanovich has a winning combination of characters in this series. I like her style of writing. Unlike some other authors that I read, she does not use a lot of minutia to clutter up the story. It is always quite straight forward.
I have read all of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books and enjoy listening to them again. They are funny and entertaining. Worth listening to or reading. You'll find some of the characters hysterically funny and Ranger and Morelli are hunks who love Stephanie and are willing to put up with her antics and pull her out of trouble when needed. There's also funeral loving Grandma and ex-prostitue, Lulu.
Witty, romantic, comedic
A light, fun book...not going to win any major book awards, but keeps you entertained!
I tried listening while on the beach on vacation and it was way too slow. I will try again, but it was far too boring.
I don't know
Didn't. Just slow book.
I never finished it so I don't know.
Stephanie Plum is a funny character. These books are easy to listen to.
Stephanie falling in the dog poop.
I've read the book and listened to it and listening to the different characters just makes me retain more of it.
fun, humorous, silly
It moved along quickly
nothing extreme but I did laugh at times
Although I enjoy the Plum series, I don't know if I can read or listen to 19 of them. For me, although I love the sarcasm, she can be too silly.
This is the worst I ever heard of the autio books by Janet Evanovich. It was verey hard to figure out who was talking in this book. C J Critt does not change her voice at all, makes it hard to determind who is talking.
Good Question, it would have been better with a different reader.
This story has some very entertaining characters; however, the profanity destroys what could have been a great book.
Retired Teacher Love reading and love listening to audio books in my car.
I knew this book would be a funny romp in the continued life of our favorite bounty hunter. Unfortunately, I'll have to read all about it, because after just a couple of chapters, I simply could not continue with the horrible narration. How could you take a classic series like this one and destroy the humor, the prosody, the timing? Do I sound disappointing? You bet I am. I seldom toss an audio title, even if the narration is suspect. But this one? The only direction I'll take here will be towards my Nook where I know I'll enjoy the tale. Shame on you. I paid for this title. Shame on me.
The sexual tension between Stephani and Moreli. All the characters that make up Stephanies' family.
When Stephanie finds a cat in Rex's cage. Thank goodness for the soupcan!
So funny how she does the mother. And yet kinda tuns me on when she does Moreli and Ranger. Very confusing, but brilliant.
Laugh and laugh and laugh.
I am planning on listening to the entire series.
