Plot summary

Stephanie Plum has had enough. Enough of bounty hunting, enough of being constantly shot at, and enough of having her cars blown up on a semi-regular basis.

So, she retires.

But she's not done with the bounty-hunting business yet..

Someone is, once again, attempting to kill her. It's someone she knows, and someone who knows her too well.

In between short, ill-fated periods working at a button factory, the Kan-Kleen Dry-Cleaning Service, and serving chicken at Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Plum must survive the various attempts on her life while trying to discover who wants to kill her this time.

Adding to her troubles is a very protective on-and-off boyfriend, an only semi-functional family, and Lula, ex-prostitute-turned-bounty-hunter, who only barely has a grasp on the finer side of the job.

All in all, she thinks it's a fairly normal day.


  • Stephanie Plum - the protagonist, a fugitive apprehension agent who quits her job and works at a button factory, Kan Klean dry cleaner, and a fast food restaurant known as Cluck-in-a-Bucket. She is in a love triangle with Ranger and Joe Morelli, and is part of a somewhat-unorthodox family.
  • Valerie - Stephanie's sister, who is to be married.
  • Vinnie - Stephanie's cousin, the bail bondsman in a Trenton, NJ district called the Burg.
  • Ranger - a bounty hunter whom Stephanie ends up working for.
  • Joe Morelli - a tough Trenton cop who is Stephanie's on/off boyfriend.
  • Lula - Stephanie's foul-mouthed sidekick and former prostitute.
  • Grandma Mazur - Stephanie's grandmother.
  • Grandma Bella - Joe's grandma. Rumored to give the eye which enables her to curse people. She also has visions.
  • Mama Macaroni - Stephanie's former employer. She was the owner of Kan Klean until she blew up when she stole Stephanie's car.
  • Frank Plum - Stephanie's father
  • Constantine Stiva - Spiro's father and owner of the Burg's favorite funeral home
  • Rex - Stephanie's pet hamster.

This book makes mention of Spiro Stiva . It is the first time since book #2 that his name is mentioned or his whereabouts questioned.

Car death

  • Saturn that was blown up with Mama Macaroni in it.
  • Joe's SUV (make unmentioned). In garage that got bombed.
