Dickie Orr. Stephanie was married to him for about fifteen minutes before she caught him cheating on her with her arch-nemesis Joyce Barnhardt. Another fifteen minutes after that Stephanie filed for divorce, hoping to never see either one of them again.
Doing favors for super bounty hunter Carlos Manoso (a.k.a. Ranger). Ranger needs her to meet with Dickie and find out if he's doing something shady. Turns out, he is. Turns out, he's also back to doing Joyce Barnhardt. And it turns out Ranger's favors always come with a price...
Going completely nutso while doing the favor for Ranger, and trying to apply bodily injury to Dickie in front of the entire office. Now Dickie has disappeared and Stephanie is the natural suspect in his disappearance. Is Dickie dead? Can he be found? And can she stay one step ahead in this new, dangerous game? Joe Morelli, the hottest cop in Trenton, NJ is also keeping Stephanie on her toes--and he may know more than lets on about her…It's a cat-and-mouse game for Stephanie Plum, where the ultimate prize might be her life.

It's the same general routi...
As usual it’s a fun romp through the streets of Trenton with Stephanie Plum and crew. As I’ve said in other reviews of this series these are fun mind candy reads. They are formulaic, but for me they still work because I think the characters are hilarious.
This one was a dud for me - I was annoyed by the continuing Morelli/Ranger indecision and it really stalled the rest of the forward momentum of the series. The crime story line in this book was certainly forgettable and I didn't laugh as much thru this one. On to 14.
Yay....the Stephanie Plum books are getting good again. Ten and Eleven were kind of dry but Thirteen was right on track again. Can't wait to read the rest.
