All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight--and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants . . .
As if things weren't complicated enough, Stephanie's just discovered her Grandma Mazur's own unmentionable alliance with Eddie. Add a series of unnerving break-ins, not to mention the bombshell revelation leveled by Stephanie's estranged sister, and Stephanie's ready for some good news. Unfortunately, a marriage proposal from Joe Morelli, the love of her life, isn't quite cutting it. And now--murder, a randy paramour, a wily mobster, death threats, extortion, and a triplie kidnapping aside--Stephanie's really got the urge to run for her life . . .

Stephanie had to pick up Eddie DeChooch, an old man who missed his court date. Simple enough since he’s an old guy, but apparently not for Stephanie and Lula. I lost count of ...
Coraz więcej abstrakcyjnych przygód Śliwki. Wszystko kręci się wokół niej i wszyscy ją uwielbiają. Trochę za bardzo robi się to przesłodzone. Nawet Komandos staje się podobny do Morellego, zamiast się od niego różnić. Wolałabym, żeby więcej było skupiania się na wątku kryminalnym, bo ten zostaje już...
I really enjoyed this book. It was probably my favorite of the series so far. I liked finally getting to meet Stephanie's sister, Valerie, and hope that she continues to be included in the rest of the series. I don't know if it is just me but it felt like Stephanie grew up a little towards the end. ...
