Not her best but an enjoyable read.

The Plum series is a victim of its own success and I know it must be hard for an author to come up with something new whilst satisfying her readers with the zany situations and clever dialogue that have made Stephanie Plum so successful. That's why smart authors stop when they are on top, but Janet Evanovich has her whole family employed by Evanovich Inc, so I guess she has to keep churning out these books even if they aren't very good any more.

The editing in the latest Plum books is pitiful, and, while recycling might be good for the planet, with novels it should be restricted to the paper and not the plot and dialogue. Janet Evanovich is contracted through to Book No 16, so I hope 15 and 16 will be a substantial improvement on 14.

Fearless Fourteen is not a terrible book, but it is definitely no better than okay. There are some laughs, but it relies too much on old lines and situations which we've heard again and again. Everyone has become silly caricatures.

This book has a plot with totally ridiculous situations, but I'm used to that with the Plum series. I suspend belief and just go with the flow, enjoying Stephanie et al using clever devices and sheer luck to triumph, but it is very contrived this time. In 14 there's a bank robbery, missing millions, kidnapping, search for the millions by the ex-con and others, but the ending was very poor and I felt cheated. It was wrapped up in such a stupid way that if I hadn't borrowed the book from the library, I would have thrown it into the rubbish bin on the train in total disgust.

Stephanie is becoming more self centred, rude and much more difficult to like and Morellie was a total wuss which was so disappoiting.

After the first twelve books (which I found varied between very good and excellent, culminating in the brilliant Twelve Sharp) I was disappointed by the formulaic Lean Mean Thirteen. In a triumph of optimism over experience, I decided that this must be a blip and was really looking forward to Fearless Fourteen. It breaks my heart to write this, but it was almost a pastiche - really just a Plum-by-numbers - ironic, eh? . Even the dialogue wasn't anywhere near the usual pithy, witty, spot-on writing I'd come to love. Having been so involved with the characters and their foibles in 1 through 12,and even to some extent in 13, I found that I was on the outside looking in and the protagonists somehow came over as shallow and not that credible. Instead of being black comedy crime novels, we have been fobbed off with chick-lit with merely a veneer of evil. Not that it's bad chick-lit but I have always felt that this series was so much more - well-written, wry, observant. The menace that was present in previous novels has disappeared - there is no Ramirez or Abruzzi or Scrogs here, although we must be thankful for small mercies in that there is no Kloughn either And what is Ranger's big dark secret or is the secret that he has no secret? Is there any Batcave proper? And as for the relationship with Ranger, the procrastination is just becoming silly. Stephanie needs to get it together with him big time. Perhaps it's also time she changed her job description slightly - a celebrity columnist picking up on some political scandal endangering body and soul for instance. I so hope that "15" is a return to form by Ms Evanovich and that she shows something of the Plum moral fibre in taking the time to write a really good threatening plot for Sixteen-to-One or whatever it's going to be called.Read more ›

I used to really enjoy reading the Stephanie Plum novels. They were wacky and fun and a great way to escape from real life for a few hours. Unfortunately, they have become stale and Fearless Fourteen was a disappointment. The plot was the same as the previous novels. The action was the same and the jokes seemed somehow not as funny. I read it as quickly as the earlier novels but I think that was because the typeface was much larger, rather than because I couldn't put the book down. Maybe it is time for Stephanie to retire gracefully from Bonds Enforcement?

If you are a fan of the series then I am sure you will buy it anyway (as I did). But this was my last purchase in this series until I read some good reviews here to tell me that Stephanie is back on form again with a totally new story and back with rib-cracking humour.

I thought I'd give this book a try. Hmmm. It's always a bad sign when you read a `comic' book without laughing once. It's even worse when you can see where it was intended to be funny, and just wasn't. I believe the point of the books is to combine wit with a pacy storyline. Sadly, no sign of one of those, either. The whole thing stutters forward, in the same way that a drunk will often move forwards for a while. It has no direction, or drama, or real purpose.

It seems to be to be neither one thing nor the other. I see from other reviews that previous Stephanie Plum books were better. Maybe so, but that's a bit like being the smartest bloke in Westlife, isn't it? It's an achievement, but not much of one.

Sadly, I won't be trying another Evanovich. If you want a genuinely funny thriller, try Carl Hiaasen.
