From Goodreads: Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down. Then someone finished Moogey off, Kenny can’t be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there’s some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets.

NOTE: I am know I am one of the last people ever to start reading this series but better late than never right? It is as fun (so far) as people said. Stephanie Plum is one hot mess 🙂
Audio Review: C.J. Critt actually did a wonderful job with the narration. My problem was with the long pauses between chapters. I am guessing that it is because the book may have been recorded for cassette tape rendering.
Quick Review: Since most people have read the Stephanie Plum series there isn’t much I can add about what a joy the stories are. In the 2nd book there still isn’t a whole lot of the choose Team Morelli or Team Ranger stuff. Right now I am Team Grandma Mazur—that woman is a hoot. Since most of this book took place in and around a funeral home (one of her favorite pasttimes is to attend funerals), she was in the story a lot. Stephanie, Ranger, and Morelli were also fantastic though Ranger’s role was a bit limited. Overall, if you are looking for a fun mystery series with great characters then I would highly recommend reading these books.
