There's nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, cole slaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that's been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it's a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they'd better figure out what's going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.

What used to be fresh and fun is totally formulaic. Same lines used again and again. Lula is ridiculous, Stephanie has no backbone. Time to find a new series.

Beautiful and brilliant, Kendra Donovan is a rising star at the FBI. Yet her path to professional success hits a speed bump during a disastrous raid where half her team is murdered, a mole in the FBI is uncovered and she herself is severely wounded.

I actually retuned this book because I couldn’t listen to the horrible Mary Poppins accent, then made the mistake of buying it again because the story sounds intriguing, but I’ll never know because I can’t listen to it.
