About the Author

Janet Evanovich now lives in New Hampshire but, like Stephanie Plum, grew up in New Jersey. She has won major crime fiction awards for her Stephanie Plum novels: ONE FOR THE MONEY was presented with the Crime Writers' Association John Creasey Award and the Dilys Award, TWO FOR THE DOUGH won the CWA Last Laugh Award and THREE TO GET DEADLY was awarded the CWA Silver Dagger for 1997.

In her I Love Lucy way, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is at it again. Singh has jumped ship, abandoning his fianc?e, stealing her dog, and owing his landlord back rent. Through their sleuthing, Stephanie and Ranger track him down in Vegas. Unfortunately, owing to a previous problem with the law, Ranger isn't allowed to go to Vegas. This leaves Stephanie with Lulu and Connie as her traveling companions. Even though Evanovich is in her storytelling prime, and readers get a lot of laughs at Stephanie's expense, this ninth story is definitely not as strong or as funny as earlier titles in the series. Part of the problem is the lack of exciting and colorful characters. Grandma Mazur has little more than a brief cameo, and we both need and want to see more of her. In addition, taking Stephanie out of New Jersey for half of the novel diminishes the enjoyment of seeing her in her element. But despite such slight weaknesses, this is still a decent installment in the series. Readers will be clamoring for their Stephanie fix. Recommended for all libraries.-Marianne Fitzgerald, Charlotte Mecklenburg Sch. Dist., NC Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Narrator King somehow makes the crazy, comic antics of Evanovich's irresistible bond agent, Stephanie Plum, seem almost rational in this fine audio adaptation. The story opens with the outrageous apprehension of a nude, Vaseline-coated fugitive by Stephanie and her plus-sized, ex-hooker, "sometimes partner" Lula. Soon after, Stephanie sets off on the trail of Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant who apparently fled a Visa bond and his fianc?e. With plenty of prior experience narrating Evanovich titles (Hard Eight, etc.), King has no trouble highlighting the eccentricities of the author's invariably quirky cast of characters, as well as the ongoing romantic triangle between Stephanie, her sexy partner Ranger and Joe, a Trenton cop with whom she shares a "long, strange history." Evanovich's quick-witted, sarcastic and often raunchy dialogue takes the edge off the story's suspense, but King's chameleon voice and ease with accents make this a lively listening experience. Simultaneous release with the St. Martin's hardcover (Forecasts, June 23). (July) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
