Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich, 307 pages, read by Leslie, on 01/12/2014


New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in–not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because “just Stephanie’s luck” the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.

I love the way her books make me laugh, I get disappointed if Stephanie Plum doesn’t blow up or mangle at least one vehicle.  This is one of her typical Plum books, full of missteps and bungling, not to mention Joe and Ranger.  I don’t know if this is the last in the series, it ended in such a way to make that a possibility.
