Product Description

Book Description

Stephanie Plum is back in an all-new adventure from No. 1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Product Description

Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn't take him down, he may take her out.

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore "Uncle Sunny" Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it's up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in - not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because - just Stephanie's luck - the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.

It's not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client's mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie's Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she's working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior centre, trying to catch a killer on the loose - and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favour.

With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost it's spark 26 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the Stephanie Plum series and look forward to reading every book that comes out but this one I found really disappointing. My favourite things in the book have always been the humour and the interaction between Stephanie, Joe and Ranger. In this book I found it all really boring and was very disappointed. The newer books haven't been as good as the earlier ones but with this book I struggled to even read it through. There wasn't enough interaction between Stephanie and the men in her life and the comedy just wasn't there. Even the mystery of Sunny seemed forced and the ending felt as though it had just been slotted in to end the book rather than worked in to the plot. Kevin felt like he was forced in to the story to add comedy but he seemed pointless and the comedy just wasn't there. Hopefully the next book will be better but this was the worst one I've read from the series. I would still recommend that people read the Stephanie plum series but this one didn't hold my interest.

1.0 out of 5 stars shockingly bad 5 Jan 2014
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Every year I vow to give up reading the Stephanie Plum series, and every year I read the next one to find myself hugely disappointed. My teenage daughter loves the series and requested the book for Christmas. She loved it. I didn't.

I think this is the weakest book of the whole series. The crime element was very poorly written. It seemed very hasty and ill conceived. Even the love triangle element fizzled out in this volume. The incidental characters were all bland and cartoonish, which leaves nothing much of anything left to say. Evanovich has written herself into a corner. The characters are nothing but caricatures, nothing happens to move them on in terms of plot or growth and in trying to maintain the status quo the books have lost all their spark, all their charm and anything that made them a delight to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars same old, same old 7 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, think it might be time to move on the storyline. How long can one cheap date keep stringing along two guys and stuffing her face with bad food? Not even the presence of a giraffe could lift this tale out of the doldrums.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like It But Not a Lot 15 Jan 2014
By I
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have read all the books in this series and am beginning to wonder how much loner they can go on. I suppose for as long as people like me will go on buying them but they are starting to seem a bit tired.
Regular readers like me will buy it and I would encourage anyone who hasn't read anything by this author to read the first few in the series.
Whether I will buy number 21 when it comes along well, I just don't know.

2.0 out of 5 stars TIME UP! 26 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover
I've been a huge fan of Janet Evanovich and Stephanie Plum but I think that the time is up on how far or how long the series can continue on for. Although the book makes fairly entertaining reading it didn't come across as anything special and was just another series of mishaps, rescues and who is going to be chosen by Stephanie. Usually I am the first to buy the new book but this time I asked for it for a Christmas present which shows that I am not as enthusiastic to read them as I used to be.
Read the earlier ones in the series they are laugh out loud funny and have a good storyline, unfortunately this is now lacking in the recent ones.

2.0 out of 5 stars Again... 2 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a devoted fan of these books for a long time now. They are funny, easy to read and even sexy at times but enough is enough. After twenty books with basically exactly the same storyline I am starting to resent having to pay ten pounds a pop for the latest instalment. The scenes between Stephanie and Ranger or Stephanie and Morelli have lost all magic replaced instead by totally exhaustive soliloquies about misplaced religious guilt over how she is living her life. While this was interesting for maybe two books, I'm starting to wonder why Stephanie doesn't just man up and pick. Evanovich has left me with the overwhelming feeling that she has no idea how to end this series but end it she must. Because right now she is pushing it into the grave. No one cares about the crimes or the bounties anymore, all I want to now is WHICH ONE?!

Not nearly as good as I had hoped. Stephanie seems tired and not much fun anymore. What a great shame.

This is the first Stephanie Plum book I didn't enjoy. It was just too silly for words for me. Maybe Stephanie Plum has run out of cars to blow up, and Morelli needs a promotion
