Publisher's Summary

In Stephanie Plum's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in New Jersey. Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but figures she can learn what it takes to catch a crook. Her first assignment: nail a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one - who also happens to be the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age 16. This is the first in Evanovich's incredibly popular Stephanie Plum series.

Abridged......Left out so much!

This was recommended to me by my daughter who has the books. She was excited for me to get them on audio as we were taking a little trip. I could only find this in abridged version. Although it was rather enjoyable, she said so much was left out that was character development, she didn't even enjoy it. If I had not known a little about the book prior, this would have been the one and only "number" book I would have read. I plan to actually READ the first three or four books before I purchase any more of the abridged versions. I don't recommend the abridged versions AT ALL. Save your credits until Audible comes out with the Unabridged Version of these titles.

Introducing Stephanie Plum

This is a really fun book to listen to. I wish there was an unabridged version. I also wish they would reissue this with a different reader. Lorelei King who does many of the later books is much better.
