Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Plum is back in all-new adventure from #1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.


What the Critics Say

“What do the New Jersey Mob, bingo, and giraffes have in common? Stephanie Plum and crew. Narrator Lorelei King performs the latest zany antics of Stephanie, Lula, and Connie, along with some sizzling smooches from Morelli and the ever hot Ranger. As Plum goes after the bail-jumping Uncle Sunny, a mobster who is Morelli's godfather, King's performance kicks into high gear, switching accents from Jersey to Italian without a hitch. Sleuthing for Stephanie includes a little black dress, funerals, and bingo. And the giraffe? He's the comic relief in this silly mystery flawlessly delivered King with a different voice for each character--except the giraffe. Combine King's vocal acting with Stephanie's adventures, and you laugh through the whole audiobook.” (AudioFile)

An improvment over the last -- but not by much

This story opens with a giraffe and a tranquilizer dart in a thugs butt. Just when you thought you seen it all with Stephanie, you don't come close. This novel is a good improvement over the last. Lula is in fine form with some excellent one liners. All of the central characters are back and so is the love triangle between Ranger, Morelli and Stephanie.

This particular story opens up very slowly and even in the middle of the novel, there is not much life to it. The sad fact is that this series in long in the tooth for those of us who have read them all. Evanovich does a reasonable job making this novel stand-alone. That is, if you read book 20, you will at least follow all of the ins and outs of the story and appreciate the characters.

Evanovich needs to find a new way to breath life into this series and make some decisions for crying out loud. Or perhaps, a mega size novel to wrap it all up and start a new series with different characters. I am luke warm on this Takedown Twenty; an improvement over the last I admit; but not too much.

Still funny

Stephanie is the quirky friend I've loved for many years. But her stories seem to get shorter and the funny stuff is getting a bit worn. Let's ask Janet E. if she could take two years off and get us a great juicy plot that's a 12 hour read. New jokes, some old characters and some new characters mixed in. Who is with me?
