Publisher's Summary

It's the last race of the season, the wheels are smoking, and the temperature is rising at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Alexandra Barnaby is NASCAR-driver Sam Hooker's race-day spotter, his eye-in-the-sky, telling him when to pass and when to let off the gas. From her vantage point high above the grandstand, she's also seeing goings-on in the infield that will change her life: events that will lead to a stolen racecar hauler, a kidnapped Saint Bernard, a bizarre murder, some restless nights under the covers with Sam, and a reunion with super cigar roller Rosa Florez and the queen of wholesale fruit, Felicia Ibarra.
From Miami, Florida, to Concord, North Carolina, and back to Miami, this is an action-packed, multi-car pileup of shady dealings, stolen technology, drive-thru windows, and destruction of personal property. It offers everything you always wanted to know about righteous indignation, stealing an 18-wheeler, stashing a dead body, and sex in the fast lane.


Audible Editor Reviews

C.J. Critt gives a high-octane performance in this NASCAR-based mystery featuring Alexandra "Barney" Barnaby. The second in the series has Barney and her race-car-driving sweetie, Sam Hooker, dealing with cheating, murder, and the kidnapping of Hooker's Saint Bernard, Beans. Janet Evanovich's wisecracking dialogue is well served by Critt. She's comfortable with comic timing and never misses an opportunity to make Evanovich's outrageous characters larger than life. While Barney won't make fans forget Stephanie Plum, this light mystery set around the grease pits of the racing world, especially as delivered by Critt, is sure to please.

The narrator made the male characters sound like morons. They were but she made it worse. I ended up throwing it out after the first disc.

Not exactly a Plum...

A long long series of events leading to a cute but usual ending. Seems the Evanovich books that are not part of the Stephanie Plum series are just carved out methodically and lack any real lustre. Have always been disappointed by books that aren't real Plums.
