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 )
Even though this series has been around for quite awhile, it's new to me. I love women detective series so I'm not sure why it took me so long to start reading about Stephanie Plum but I'm glad I did. Fun and fast moving. I liked C J Critt as the reader and look forward to the entire series.
These books are a little predictable, but they are quite fun. I've read 4 of them now and only stopped because the 5th isn't on Audible (at least not the unabridged version.) CJ Critt is a great narrator.
As usual Shephanie gets the job done, with humor. The trio of women is a great mix of the unusual. I love this series. I started listening at the 15th or 16th book and had t o go back to the start of the series.
I was only able to download a partial recording of this book, very disapointed in the lackof concern in emails (unanswered) and phone calls. I don't regard this website as trustworthy.

I have just started this series but I am loving it. I have seen many negative comments about the narrator and I do agree she can't compare to Lorelei King. But if you start listening to Critt first you should be fine. I loved the story. I have been listening while I work out at the Y and I keep getting looks because I am laughing so hard. I am giving four stars due to the narrator. Like others have said, her voice doesn't fit the character.
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.
Why they thought a 50 year old smoker would be a good voice to portray a 30-year old learning the ropes at her new job is beyond me. To make matters worse, there is no passion behind her read. Just flat and lifeless. I don't know if the story is good, as I couldn't take it and switched to another book. Heard so much raving about how funny and great the Plum books are that I am really disappointed, as this is my first. Be sure to find a clip to listen to first if you can.
Easy and uncomplicated to listen to.
No! The characters were too much like those in a B movie, This book was a disappointment.
