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

*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—“My poor bambinos”. Cracked me up.

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!
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...
