Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Plum is back, and she's having a bad hair day - for the whole month of January. She's got to find Mo Bedemier, a beloved neighborhood guy who was caught carrying a concealed weapon. Joe Morelli, homicide cop and local hunk, is keeping his distance; last time he got social with Stephanie he ended up naked in the middle of the street. But Steph's not one to say no to a challenge, whether she's after a Mo or a Morelli. With the help of her bounty hunter coach, Ranger, and a former "ho" turned file clerk, Stephanie takes off in hot pursuit.

Critic Reviews

"Here's Stephanie Plum, a bail-bond agent from Trenton, N.J., clumping onto the P.I. scene in Doc Martens, with a sassy lip that would stop Philip Marlowe...Stephanie cracks with '90s 'tude." (People magazine)

Love the Stephanie Plum series!

I started with "To the Nines" and then went to "Hard Eight" .. when I realized I loved these books and had to have more I started at the begining and am now on "Four to Score". The only problem I had with the first three was Lori Petty who read the books.. I'm glad there is a new narrator. You have to try reading these books.. they are GREAT!

An original series that has its own style

What does Lori Petty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She bring more fun to the characters

until I discovered Lori Petty doesn't narrate any of the remaining Stephanie Plum books. Lori Petty is great and made the audio books for me. I love her Jersey accent and quirky voice.

I'm not hip on any of the other narrators except maybe Debi Mazar so after listening to those, I'll finish the rest of the books by reading not listening. I think this is a great series and really enjoy Janet's style of writing.

Another Great Story!

She's done it again! Another "Stephanie Plum" book that's sure to please. The characters just get crazier, sexier, and more hilarious with each book! Gotta have it... Once again the Stephanie we all love...

Abridged version seems rushed

I enjoy the Stephanie Plum stories and this one is no exception. My only complaint is that there are only abridged versions available on audible for the early books and this one in particular seems rushed and lacking in the areas that give life to the characters.

Love the series!

This is the first time I have read this author and have fallen in love with the Stephanie Plum series. I downloaded all 13 books and listened to them all within a week. I couldn’t wait to hear what adventures (and mishaps!) that Stephanie, Joe, Ranger, Lula and the rest of the gang would get into. I’ve read some of the previous reviews. I agree with some and disagree with others. I disagree that it gets old and complacent that Stephanie finds herself in the same situations in every book. It appears to me that Stephanie’s character is just one of those people that trouble and mayhem seem to find. I do agree that narrator Lori Petty is the voice of Stephanie. Narrator Debi Mazar’s accent is a bit heavy for audio books and then after all this Lorilei King takes over as narrator for the rest of the series. While Ms. King’s character voices are awesome (she has such a range!) her Stephanie voice has no Jersey accent at all and sound just a little too “blue blood”. Otherwise Ms. King is a joy to listen to. You will fall in love with Ranger and Joe! Both are too hot to handle……no wonder Stephanie can’t choose between the two!

Don’t let the narrator changes deter you from listening to this funny charming, and at times mysterious series. You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for something light hearted to listen to.

Narrator Kills the Murder Mystery

Three to Get Deadly could possibly be another enjoyable, easy listen--except I can't get past the child-like voice of the narrator used on this edition. The narrator on the first two books was excellent.

Stephanie Plum does it again

Another easy apprehension or so it seemed. Stephanie gets down and dirty when bodies start turning up at every turn. The case turns into drugs and porn with a chase thru a mall along with a bad hair day.
The humor and plot twists in this chapter of Stephanie's life kept this book interesting all the way thru.
And it would not be complete without something getting blown up in the process.
It took me awhile to get use to the raspy monotone voice of Lori Petty, but over all the book was great.
