Il lavoro scarseggia per Stephanie Plum, cacciatrice di taglie di Trenton, New Jersey. Ma in famiglia c'č un problema: lo zio Fred, detto il Tirchio, sembra sparito nel nulla. Unico indizio: problemi con l'azienda che si occupa della raccolta dei rifiuti. Non che zia Mabel sia particolarmente addolorata della scomparsa del marito, ma quello che potrebbe sembrare solo un fastidioso disguido amministrativo si trasforma ben presto in una faccenda piuttosto seria, almeno a giudicare dalle foto inquietanti che lo zio Fred nascondeva in un cassetto. Questa volta Steph č spalleggiata da Randy Briggs, nano programmatore di computer, e tallonata da un oscuro angelo custode, Bunchy, sedicente allibratore a caccia, pure lui, di Fred. Persino Joe Morelli, poliziotto e fidanzato storico della nostra eroina, sembra avere qualcosa da nascondere. Fra sparatorie, una serie di strani suicidi e un pugile maniaco che attenta alla sua vita, Stephanie deve affrontare, oltre ai consueti problemi di capelli, di linea e di automobili che non fanno il loro dovere, le spericolate iniziative dell'inossidabile nonna Mazur e le attenzioni sempre piů esplicite di Ranger, tenebroso e affascinante collega...

Book Review 4 out of 5 stars to High Five , the fifth book in the "Stephanie Plum" cozy mystery series, written in 1999 by Janet Evanovich . If you thought Stephanie was off-her-rocker, wait until you meet more of her family. Uncle Fred has disappeared and all they can find that might lead
*** 4.25 ***An outstanding monthly buddy read with the coolest gang in town, The BB&Bs!!! ""Problem is, you aren't living up to your earning potential," Lula said. "We only got chickenshit cases these days. What you need is to have a serial killer or a homicidal rapist jump bail. Those boys are wor
I think my last status update says it all: "These books are such a cocktease." I don't know why I keep checking these out from the library. Some supernatural force keeps pulling me down the Mystery aisle and forcing these books into my hands. I can't explain my fascination otherwise. I don't really
"I don't get it," the driver said. "I hardly scraped against your car. Why would it explode like that?""That's what her cars do," Lula said. "They explode." Stephanie is hell on wheels. Literally. Her crazy relationship with cars are some of the funniest parts of these books. She is singlehandedl
This is probably the twentieth time I've read the Stephanie Plum books. I love them, obviously. When I need a truly entertaining story to make the day better, these are always the books I turn to. Reread March 2018
Ah, Stephanie—what has happened to your uncle who seems to have gone missing? Who cares? It’s the journey and not the . . . well, you know the rest. If you are reading this series from the beginning then you will get the jokes i.e. when the fire alarm goes off in the funeral home everyone looks towa Leggi tutto
3.5 stars? So. I did not like this sequel at all. I enjoyed it, binged it, laughed with it, but did not like it. Because... A love triangle? Really, Janet? I found it cringy and most honestly hope you did not let Stephanie choose the other guy in that last, cliff hanging scene.
This is a humor/cozy mystery/chick-lit, and this is the 18th book in the Stephanie Plum series. I have listen to this whole series on audiobooks, and the narrator of the audiobooks does a great job on this book. All the books in this series will make you laugh so much, and I will say the way to read Leggi tutto
I’m not even through the first chapter and am already disappointed!! I love this series and C.J. Croft was an AMAZING narrator. I purchased this audio book excited to continue the Stephanie Plum story to find out the narrator has changed and she is absolutely AWFUL! She is monotoned with no pitch di Leggi tutto
I enjoy this series. I read these books when I need something light. Grandma Mazur can usually be counted on to make me laugh out loud! I'm glad the character of Ramirez is now out of the way. I didn't like him still being in the story. I look forward to the next segment.....
