Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college - and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks.
As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard, it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case; security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken; and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.

Stephanie is back -- A great installment
I started to smile five minutes into this short six hour novel and didn't stop smiling till the end. Lula is especially funny in her conversations with Stephanie. Also, the relationship triangle has a twist and turn that adds a little spice. This story certainly breathes life back into the series. There are times, at the beginning, where Stephanie refers to Moreli as her 'recent boyfriend' and you think, 'Yeah for the last 17 books,' and you roll your eyes. Yet, on the whole, the storyline is an engaging listen. I am actually grateful for it being a shorter listen because the story move faster. Evanovich populates the story with hilarious offshoots of characters as she often does and it it works. The first offshoot is pretty funny.
Lorelei King shows up with the voice we have all grown to associate with Ms. Plum. It is a seamless performance.
This novel gives me hope that the Evanovich has again found a chord to keep us engaged as she winds her way towards something-something 23. I give it a thumbs up.
