Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Narrator King somehow makes the crazy, comic antics of Evanovich's irresistible bond agent, Stephanie Plum, seem almost rational in this fine audio adaptation. The story opens with the outrageous apprehension of a nude, Vaseline-coated fugitive by Stephanie and her plus-sized, ex-hooker, "sometimes partner" Lula. Soon after, Stephanie sets off on the trail of Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant who apparently fled a Visa bond and his fiancee. With plenty of prior experience narrating Evanovich titles (Hard Eight, etc.), King has no trouble highlighting the eccentricities of the author's invariably quirky cast of characters, as well as the ongoing romantic triangle between Stephanie, her sexy partner Ranger and Joe, a Trenton cop with whom she shares a "long, strange history." Evanovich's quick-witted, sarcastic and often raunchy dialogue takes the edge off the story's suspense, but King's chameleon voice and ease with accents make this a lively listening experience

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Stephanie Plum is a Jersey Girl, a bounty hunter, and a resident of a part of Trenton where you can still go to Mom's for dinner and your cop boyfriend Morelli's grandmother has visions that include you in a coffin. Stephanie is on the trail of an Indian contract worker named Singh who disappeared when his visa was up. When she interviews a McDonald's employee who knew him, he's shot as she stands there. Then rose-and-carnation bouquets with very sinister notes start appearing in Stephanie's apartment and in her e-mail, and a few more bodies turn up with bullet holes. Meanwhile, Stephanie's sister, Valerie, is about to give birth; her sidekick, Lula, goes on the loudest diet ever written; and a trip to Vegas--yes, it's business--involves both Elvis and Tom Jones impersonators. Evanovich, and Stephanie, are at the top of their form here: laugh-out loud moments jostle with sticky, visceral terror; Stephanie's mentor, Ranger, and Morelli don't so much vie for her favors as bestow them in turn. Ever smarter, funnier, sexier, scarier. GraceAnne DeCandido

Stephanie Plum always gets her man. Well usually. Nearly always anyway. And sometimes she even knows why she has him.
I've enjoyed every book in this series, despite the fact that it has a gimmicky naming convention I would usually find off-putting. The protagonist is Stephanie Plum, a Jersey girl and bounty hunter employed by her cousin Vinnie. Her main job skill is persistence, and an uncanny ability to attract the attention of wackos and murderers wherever she goes. To The Nines is no exception, as what starts off as a simple hunt for a foreign computer geek who skipped out on his visa bond evolves into a cat and mouse game between Stephanie and an unknown assailant determined to do something unknown to her.
One of the endearing characteristics of these books is that Stephanie very rarely understands what her real problem is until it's solved, and sometimes not even then. The plot here twists back and forth, and sometimes pauses while Ranger and Morelli, the two very macho love interests, duel for position in Stephanie's heart and bed. The resolution is entertaining as always, even if hard core fans of the series will be slightly disappointed by the survival of Stephanie's car through the entire book. Highly recommended!

This book would be on the one top of the best Stephanie Plum books I read so far and all of them are GOOD. This book had me rolling on some parts. And Lula had to be her funniest with her diets.
Stephanie is on very important bond case where she is working with Ranger as her partner, she is bounder hunter, as you may know. There is sort of a stoker after her who calls them self Webmaster who wants Stephanie dead. Almost the whole book Stephanie is living with Joe Morelli. And Grandma Bella keeps having vision of Stephanie dead. Lula goal is to become a super model & Stephanie goal is pretty mush to live to see the next day with a nuts-o on her trail. Stephanie suspects Morelli to be cheating on her is it true? And Vinnie is in big trouble. Valire is finally haves her baby but isn't sure if she wants to marry Kloughn. And Stephanie stops wrecking her cars it some thing new can you guess what is now? They even go to Las Vegas in this book where in Las Vegas where there is thong throwing, fake Elvis, gambling, danger, shopping, airplanes, death, and marriages? But now in this book the table are turned and Stephanie, she is the one hunted...

It always starts out simple, but never stays that way long. When cousin Vinnie branches out to include visa bonds in his bail bonds business, it looked like good pr, until the resident alien in question skipped out on the bond, leaving Plum Bonds out a fee and with egg on its face. One meeting with his future mother in law is enough to reveal why he might have skipped, but even with such a good reason, Stephanie still has to find and bring him and the dog he kidnapped home. Her search is rather fruitless until she gets a tip that sends her, Connie, and the now dieting Lula to Vegas where the trail literally dead ends with the skip found shot. They do find the dog alive. That does not end the case though. Someone targets Stephanie as the next prize in a deadly game, prompting Ranger and Joe to set aside their rivalry to protect the woman they both care about. In the middle of all this, Steph's sister gives birth, which proves very messy for one of the bodyguards.
**** With the perfect mix of laughs and chills, readers once again get to share the fun of a Plum mystery. If you want a good time, then picking up To the Nines is a no brainer. ****

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Any mystery series writer has to walk a very fine line, continuing to work the formula that made the series a success, while adding enough novelty with each volume to keep it from reading like a formula re-run.
The problem with "To the Nines" is that it's too long on formula, too short on novelty. After nine books, Stephanie hasn't grown as a character at all. She still can't remember her bullets, still can't get a skip into cuffs and down to the station. The joke's getting old.
Don't get me wrong. I love -- repeat, ***LOVE!!!*** -- Stephanie and her entourage, especially Grandma Mazur. And the scene in "Hot Six" when the guys take off with the dog in the black Lincoln is one of ten funniest things I've ever read. But I keep waiting for Stephanie to **move**, to learn how to use cuffs and charge a stun gun and move on to bigger, more complicated, more subtle mistakes (or car explosions).
I'll continue to read Stephanie novels, regardless. But here's hoping that "Ten Big Ones" breaks some new ground. Steph, I'm rootin' for ya!!!

What a tour de force from Janet Evanovich! To the Nines is so deftly executed. This series just keeps getting stronger and this installment has lots to recommend it.
In To the Nines Stephanie, Lula, and Connie fly to Las Vegas to kick some fugitive butt. The best part about the Vegas trip is that it doesn't forestall Stephanie's significant relationships, but is a mini-break in the book and gives Lula a chance to live large(r than usual.) Morelli and Ranger are present through at least three-fourths of the book to watch Stephanie's back in Jersey, engage her in wittily suggestive and affectionate repartee, loan cars, and provide bodyguard service. Rounding out the cast of characters are Morelli's mother and Grandma Bella, who more then compensate for a lack of funerals. Also included are healthy servings of Stephanie's family (with the expectant Valerie, kids, and Albert Kloughn) during dinnertimes.
Clean writing, setting-appropriate dialogue, not to mention Stephanie's quality time with Morelli and some with Ranger make this book one of the best of the series. Five stars!
