Reviews

"I think of myself more as an entertainer than as a writer," Evanovich says in a bonus interview at the end of this audiobook, and indeed, her latest offering (following To The Nines) will leave listeners with little doubt that she is a master of screwball comedy. At the start of this adventure, bumbling New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and her sassy sidekick, Lula, witness a gang member known as the Red Devil rob a convenience store and attempt to bomb it with a Molotov cocktail, which hits Stephanie's car instead. Stephanie gets a good look at the Red Devil, making her a key witness and a target for a nasty gang called the Slayers. Her sometime boyfriend, vice cop Joe Morelli, insists she stay home and out of danger, but Stephanie would rather be bringing in two-bit criminals than lying low. Narrator King steps neatly into Stephanie's shoes, her agile voice conveying not only Stephanie's fear and frustration, but her plaintive, why-does-this-always-happen-to-me attitude. King also nails the manly, mysterious voice of gorgeous bounty hunter Ranger, Stephanie's sometime superhero. Although the high-pitched voice King gives Stephanie's adventure-loving grandmother may grate on some listeners nerves, her vocal stylings are generally as superb as Evanovich's zany characterizations. Simultaneous release with the St. Martin's hardcover (Forecasts, June 7). (June) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Hard to believe, but Evanovich's popular series is ten years old. In this outing, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the run from a vicious gang she ticked off. All the usual suspects are here: Grandma Mazur, plus-sized Lula, sexy cop Joe Morrelli, and the mysteriously cool Ranger. Too bad the slapstick, cartoonish humor overwhelms the slim plot. Only for fans who can't get enough. A Jersey girl no longer, Evanovich lives in New Hampshire. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/04.] Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
