Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one.
The Cousin: Joe Morelli
Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.
The Complications: Murder, kidnapping, destruction of personal property, and acid reflux
Less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He's getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.
The Catastrophe: Moonman
Morelli hires Walter "Mooner" Dunphy, stoner and "inventor" turned crime fighter, to protect his house. Morelli can't afford a lot on a cop's salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.
The Cupcake: Stephanie Plum
Stephanie and Morelli have a long-standing relationship that involves sex, affection, and driving each other nuts. She's a bond enforcement agent with more luck than talent, and she's involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one.
The Crisis: A favor for Ranger
Security expert Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, has a job for Stephanie that will involve night work. Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie's evening activities.
The Conclusion: Only the fearless should listen to Fourteen.
Thrills, chills, and incontinence may result.
"Evanovich's series is as addictive as Fritos...Evanovich serves up consistently craveable goodies." ( People)

I have to admit that I took a long break from the Stephanie Plum series. Somewhere around 8 or 9 I felt that the stories were getting to be too far-fetched, and the characters just too silly. It was like Evanovich was trying too hard to be funny, just for the sake of being funny. So for the last year or two I've been enjoying a couple of other series. However, when I saw that she was getting ready to release #18, I thought I might want to get caught up. I picked it back up at #13, and am delighted to report that I am enthusiastically on #16 in about one month's time! (Atlanta has a lot of traffic) Look out, boys and girls, Stephanie is BACK!
Lorelei King's performances have never faltered. She is as animated as ever with her endless store of voices and characters. Expect to see a few new ones, and don't be surprised when a few of our old time favorites pop back up!
