Publisher's Write-Up

In her most explosive adventure yet, bombshell bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is dropped into a smorgasbord of murder, kidnapping and extortion - a magnificent buffet of mud wrestling, motorcycles, fast cars, fast food and fast men.

Stephanie Plum thinks she's going after an easy FTA: a senior citizen charged with smuggling contraband cigarettes. But when she and Lula show up at his house, they get more than they bargained for - a corpse in the woodshed and an old man who's learned a lot of tricks during his years in the mob, and isn't afraid to use his gun. Then there's his involvement with Walter 'MoonMan' Dunphy and Dougie 'The Dealer' Kruper (Stephanie's former high-school classmates). They've been sucked into an operation that is much more than simple smuggling, one that holds risks far greater than anyone could have imagined. And when they disappear, Stephanie goes into high-octane search mode.

But Stephanie's mind is on other matters as well, because she has two proposals to consider: vice cop Joe Morelli is proposing marriage, and fellow bounty hunter Ranger is proposing a single perfect night...

All in all, a typical dilemma in the world of Plum.

I am reliably informed that I was giggling as I read this last night.

Stephanie is having a rather tough time at the moment, she and Joe Morelli are kind of discussing getting married, and in a moment of complete madness she tells her mother, because she keeps breaking crockery and seems to be heading for a nervous breakdown, especially after Stephanie's perfect sister returns home with her marriage in shreds.

Stephanie is still the bounty hunter from hell, and is given an assignment to bring in an old man who had been smuggling cigarettes. Sounds simple, but when Stephanie tries to find him, she finds a dead woman instead. Things get more surreal, with the local retired mobsters club becoming so accustomed to breaking into her home that they even wash up for her.

Stephanie's friends remain one of the brightest strands of any Plum story, and they do not disappoint. Picture, if you will, weed heads dressed up as superheroes, and female mud wrestlers being taken apart by Lula, as she rescues Stephanie, and you will appreciate some of the high points.

Another particularly rich source of amusement is Bob the dog, still eating everything in sight and with a slightly delicate stomach, guess where Stephanie takes him to relieve himself? I am sure that I am not the only one who has had experience of a large dog with a dicey tummy, and I just appreciated that it wasn't me who had to clear it up this time...
