Assisted by her equally wacky family, two sizzling hot love interests, and her hamster, Stephanie Plum is, as always, showing the world exactly how not to be a bounty hunter. Mobster Salvatore "Uncle Sunny" Sunucchi is on the lam, and it's up to Stephanie to find him. Plus, security specialist Ranger asks her to help to investigate the death of one of Stephanie's grandmother's bingo buddies.
VERDICT Unfortunately, this once-excellent and deservedly best-selling humorous crime series is showing its age. The unresolved love triangle is getting tiresome, the incidental characters ever more eccentric, and the plots…. Even the author's superb tongue-in-cheek writing can't save this retread. Lorelei King has voiced several previous Evanovich books and delivers her usual outstanding performance. Recommended for Stephanie Plum fans.
