5.0 out of 5 stars A Plum Full of Fun! 7 Jan. 2009
By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
In the past, Between-the-Numbers Plums have been somewhat disappointing . . . with lots of Diesel (the now-you-see-him, now-you-don't spook who seems to be connected to The Men in Black), but little or no Morelli and Ranger. Well, Ms. Evanovich has solved that problem in Plum Spooky by putting in decent amounts of Morelli and Ranger to season the minor chemistry between Diesel and Stephanie. As a result, this is a full-fledged Plum . . . just as though it had its own number . . . you know, something like Frightening Fifteen.

As usual, Diesel appears out of nowhere with no warning. Stephanie has three accused who have missed their court dates, and none of them seem to be particularly challenging. There's Gordo Bella who ran over his ex-wife's new husband twice and is otherwise law-abiding. Denny Guzzi shot himself in the foot while robbing a convenience story, so he probably isn't going to run very fast. The other is Martin Munch, a skinny, five-foot two-inch scientist who looks like a kid in a SpongeBob T-shirt.

Now all that would seem pretty straightforward, but there's a complication. Susan Stitch has left her pet monkey, Carl, for Stephanie to baby sit while Susan is away on her honeymoon. You guessed it. Carl's part of the investigation team. Now, Carl's not your usual monkey. You'll have to read the book to understand what I mean, but it's all very funny.

The story has one other complication. Have you ever read any of the Carl Hiaasen novels about cleaning up the creeps who are ruining the environment? Well, Carl Hiaasen could have been a coauthor for parts of this story as we read about the Pine Barrens in southern New Jersey and the mythical men and beasts of that area (including the Jersey Devil who flies noisily above the trees at night).

3.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the usual Between The Numbers 19 Jun. 2009
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
The Between the Numbers series do exactly what they say on the tin, provide instalments of the Stephanie Plum stories between the numbered novels. This latest fitting between numbers 14 and 15 in the series.

Previously the between the numbers books have been slim volumes, more like short stories. They're tied together by the appearance of a semi super natural hero called Diesel and all revolve around festivals such as Christmas and Easter. This one is slightly different in that although it is called 'spooky' it is not about Halloween and is also a much meatier book in terms of number of pages. Stephanie gets entangled with a vampiric character called Wulf, a crazy scientist called Martin Munch and the latest bunch of oddball skips on her regular bounty hunting routines.

This is, in my opinion, a distinct improvement. I have enjoyed the others in the series but was beginning to think that the price for such slender fare was one I was no longer willing to pay. This is much more the thing.

As with the numbered series the material is the same, Stephanie encounters freakish characters, bizarre pets and exploding cars whilst wrestling with the complications of a love life trapped between men she wants to sleep with but can't commit to. Rex is now the oldest hamster in the world and Grandma Mazur is older than God.

The ending to this book is slightly rushed and too neat, but other than that an enjoyable read.

Having said this, if you enjoy Evanovich's sense of humour and her writing and are willing to suspend all belief and any hope that the mainframe plotting will ever move forward you will enjoy yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a laugh 29 July 2011
Format:Paperback
As the book is between the numbers, the character relationships do not develop but apart from that, the story is pure Plum, hillariously ridiculous and highly entertaining to the point where I had a fit of the giggles every few pages, much to the curiosity of my fellow travellers. One of my companions removed the book from my hands the minute I had turned the last page, to see what I was laughing at and ended up reading it! If you have enjoyed all the Stephanie Plum novels so far then get this one and have a good laugh but don't expect to 'find out' what happens in the Steph/Morelli/Ranger triangle.

3.0 out of 5 stars very average 1 Jan. 2013
By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Plum Spooky is the fourth novel in the Stephanie Plum Between the Numbers books by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie's main FTA in this instalment is the diminutive Martin Munch, a quantum physics whiz, who has, inconveniently, been targeted by the Unmentionable Gerwulf Grimoire (Wulf) to help with a scheme to control the world's weather. Enter Diesel, coincidentally cousin to the evil Wulf, and cosmic bounty hunter. Apart from a good deal of murder, kidnapping, and thievery, there are mythical entities (Easter Bunny, Jersey Devil, Sasquatch, Fire Farter), the use of a nail gun on the human body and the destruction of at least one of Stephanie's vehicles. Stephanie babysits a monkey (or seven), is kidnapped for use as a sex slave, gets lost in the Pine Barrens without bars on her cell phone, gets into a fruit fight, steals a van and some rockets, rides in a helicopter, blows up a fuel depot and a mine and gets stuck in a cranberry bog. Readers don't come to Plum for depth: "What do you think about death?" I asked Diesel. "I like the buffet. After that it's not my favourite thing". Lula is still engaged to Tank but consulting with Miss Gloria and things are looking shaky. Best exchange is probably: "How's it going?" Morelli wanted to know. "It's average. Stole a truck. Blew up a house. Brought home seven monkeys. And now there's a naked man in my shower." "Yeah, same ol', same ol'." Morelli said. Evanovich should lose Carl the very irritating monkey before proceeding. Some laugh-out-loud moments, but this one is average.
