Publisher's Summary

Number-one best-selling author Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels are: "irresistible" (Houston Chronicle), "stunning" (Booklist), "outrageous" (Publishers Weekly), "brilliantly evocative" (The Denver Post), and "making trouble and winning hearts" (USA Today).

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don't just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don't do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

Since the hospital staff's lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it's hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie's Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money - or maybe just desperate - Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again - a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid's dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone.... Or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she'll have to remember: No guts, no glory.

Stale story.

Evanovich has run her course wth Stephanie Plum. None of the Plum books get very far with the storylines. They are overshadowed by cute vignettes chained together by the stories. However, there are only so many vignettes that one can draw from the finite relationships in her life. I thought I was rereading her first book.

Keeps getting better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is funny and the narrator did a wonderful job of separating the characters.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Not precisely but a lot was going on, and as the different criminals and plots started to unroll I got more and more interested in listening it until the end.

Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

Stephanie Plum for sure.

Notorious Nineteen

All of the books are formula books, same story, similar jokes, definitely not rocket science but Lorelei King is terrific as a reader and the only saving grace in the series. I love to listen to her read. Okie Reading Specialist
