Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is set to blow sky high when international murder hits dangerously close to home, in this dynamite novel by Janet Evanovich.
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, she's flying back to New Jersey solo, and someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
Only one other person has seen the missing photograph -- Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she'll need to watch her back.
Over at the Bail Bonds Agency it's business as usual -- until the bonds bus serving as Vinnie's temporary HQ goes up in smoke, Stephanie's wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their “largest” FTA yet, lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie's apartment, and everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii?!
Morelli, Trenton's hottest cop, isn't talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn't talking about Hawaii. And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It's complicated.

The Stephanie Plum series used to be so much fun to read, but it has been going downhill for quie some time now. I really haven't enjoyed the last four or five books at all. This book is a marginally better read then the previous ones, but it still is tough to get through at times. The book begins with Stephanie getting off a plane in New Jersey, on her way back from a disastrous vacation in Hawaii. She finds a strange envelope in her bag with a picture of a man on it. Stephanie doesn't know how she got the picture and she throws it away, and then the mayhem starts. All of a sudden she's got a whole bunch of people after her with guns, knives and other paraphanalia. We have the usual with these books. Cars being stolen, skips getting away and buildings and trailers blowing up. I really don't know why I keep reading these books, but at least I don't buy them. I borrow them from the library, so nothing is really lost, just a bit of time.
