Take an exit off the Jersey Turnpike to the irresistible world of Stephanie Plum, America's favorite bounty hunter, where she gets into more trouble than ever. This time, she faces a notorious gang in Trenton who wants her dead. Morelli warns that she's in too deep, and Stephanie more than agrees. But the gang won't let her bow out. With Ranger missing in action, Stephanie has to go into hiding, and stumbles on to the secret location of Ranger's "bat cave". Is it the perfect place to disappear? Or will she get into more trouble than she knows by delving into his private world? The tenth Stephanie Plum novel is filled with Evanovich's trademark high stakes, high adventure, high wit, and sly comedy.

Critic Reviews

"Evanovich is at her best in her 10th Stephanie Plum adventure, which reads like the screenplay for a 1930s screwball comedy: fast, funny, and furious....The rollicking plot, replete with car chases, family squabbles, massive doughnut consumption and a frantic, wacky finale, keeps the reader breathless. As usual, Evanovich's eccentric characters...are a treat." (Publishers Weekly)

Another great story

Enjoyed the perils of Stephanie again. All the characters are entertaining and each makes a little progress in their lives in this story. Especially enjoyed the surprise ending. The reader does a good job with the various voices. Some of the men sound a little conjested, but maybe they are - doesn't detract from the story though.

Lorelei King is Great

Reviewer "sharol" is right about Ms King as a narrator, but wrong about "To the Nines." King narrarated that book as well. "To the Nines" was the first Evanovich book I listened to or read. Ms King's characterizations made that book very entertaining and had me wanting more. Unfortunately, my second Evanovich book was narrated by Debbie Mazar, and while she is not bad, she doesn't hold a candle to Lorelei King. Evanovich's stories are solid. Listen to those narrated by King, read the others.

Well read, but too cutesy-poo

The author had been strongly recommended by a close friend, so I decided to try this one. I was VERY bored, very fast. I guess the story is the equivalent of a Road Runner cartoon for adults? Shallow, and I guess the only point is how very, very clever the author is verbally? I couldn't take it after the first three hours.

Ten Big Ones

This is the first book that I received from Audible that was TERRIBLE.
Very tackless in so many ways. I was very disappointed in the whole 5 chapters, as I could not go on with this book.

Children's Book?

I picked up this book because of the ratings. It has too many bad words to be a children's book. Possibly it could be a soap opera. It is not a bad book, but it doesn't quite seem that it was written for adults except for the bad language. The only thing that I can suppose on the ratings is that the author has a cult following. If you want something that could be the sound track from the 8pm time slot on NBC Friday night, this is it.

Disappointed

This was my first audio book by Janet Evanovich and I was very disappointed. The storyline was interesting and I liked listening to the author reading the story but I just could not finish because of the language throughout the story. There were only several words per chapter that made me wince but it was enough that I could not finish the book and I will not purchase another book from this author again.

Ten Big Ones

This book has too much foul language, uninspired sex, no story line, and is incredibly boring. It was an insult to my intelligence to read. I will not pick this author again.

What a waste

I realize I'm in the minority, but how can so many people like a book with:
- almost no plot or sense of movement
- a ridiculous ending with no resolution
- one-dimensional characters (two dimensions is what these characters aspire to)?

I'll agree that there were some funny scenes and about 90 seconds of suspense, but seven+ hours is a lot to invest for such little return.

The narrator was decent - a little overblown on some of the accents, but she did a nice job of nailing the accents on the main characters. (However, am I the only one who noticed that Ranger's and Junkman's accents were virtually identical? What are they - flip sides of the same coin?)

I wish I could return this book and get a refund from Audible.

Irritating Mindless dribble

Sometimes I like mindless dribble. This book, however, was so dumb that it was just plain annoying. I gave it a good hour of listening. Hey, I paid for it. But life is too short for bad books. This is a very bad book. I am dumbfounded at how many people praised this book and so I guess there is a group of people that like this kind of thing and they probably vote Republican, watch every episode of Jerry Springer, scratch their nuts in public (and that's the women) and stay in their mobile homes during hurricanes. If you have an IQ over 45, you will probably not be able to tolerate this one.
