"Trenton, New Jersey's favorite used car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he's out on bail and has missed his date in court--and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city's hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer's whereabouts. To top things off, Ranger--resident security expert and Stephanie's greatest temptation--has been the target of an assassination plot. He's dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he'll have to enlist Stephanie's help. Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins and Stark Street being overrun with a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day's work for Stephanie Plum"--

I've read every Stephanie Plum novel except the last one, which obviously was not written by Evanovich. All it took was reading the first paragraph of this book to recognize it also was not written by Evanovich. It appears she is using the same collaborator but keeping her name on the book to draw sales. It may draw sales, but it has lost this reader. The language lacks the rhythm of the old books. No matter how hard he tries, the ghostwriter can't capture the tone and voice of Stephanie Plum. And in his efforts to adopt Evanovich's writing style, the whole thing falls flat.


The death knoll for Stephanie Plum's books rang long ago. 

It's time to put them to rest and give an elegy.
