Goodreads description--Catch a professional assassin: top priority. Find a failure-to-appear and collect big bucks: top score. How she’ll pull it all off: top secret.

Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures. So Stephanie is going to have to do something she really doesn’t want to do: protect former hospital security guard and general pain in her behind Randy Briggs. Briggs was picking up quick cash as Poletti’s bookkeeper and knows all his boss’s dirty secrets. Now Briggs is next on Poletti’s list of people to put six feet under.

To top things off, Ranger—resident security expert and Stephanie’s greatest temptation—has been the target of an assassination plot. He’s dodged the bullet this time, but if Ranger wants to survive the next attempt on his life, he’ll have to enlist Stephanie’s help and reveal a bit more of his mysterious past.

Death threats, highly trained assassins, highly untrained assassins, and Stark Street being overrun by a pack of feral Chihuahuas are all in a day’s work for Stephanie Plum. The real challenge is dealing with her Grandma Mazur’s wild bucket list. A boob job and getting revenge on Joe Morelli’s Grandma Bella can barely hold a candle to what’s number one on the list—but that’s top secret.

I never expect too much out of this series. Whatever I get is always a pleasant surprise. What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!


  1. It's on my list to start this series some day. I have friends that really enjoy it.

    My WoW:

  2. I am so out of the loop on this series. I have only read the first one, which I liked, and have the third and fourth to read. I had no idea the series was still going. Wow! I am more behind than I imagined.

    Our Waiting and Wishing

  3. What an exciting pick
    I hope you'll enjoy it a lot :)


  4. I also can't wait for Top Secret Twenty One. Sounds Like it's going to be the best book of the series yet.

  5. Oh yes. I don't expect much out of the series serious wise, but there's always humor. Some of the individual books are more humorous than others, but you can always count on these books to be entertaining. Thanks for stopping by Catherine!

  6. The good thing about these is that there's really no rush to read them all. Any single one of these books are entertaining. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The good thing is that these are quick reads for me. While there are a lot of them in the series, they're not really all that long. I mean they all basically equal two or three of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. :) HA! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Stephanie!

  8. I hope it'll be better than the last couple of books in the series. They've just felt like filler books. I hope some progress is made in the overall storyline of the series for this one! Thanks for stopping by Carissa!

  9. I can't wait for this one either... I love these books soooo much!

  10. That's the beauty of long-running series. It's like a visit with old friends and you know you will be entertained.

  11. I'm with you Angela. I always look forward to these. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

  12. I have only read three or four of these, so I need to get going! I do enjoy Stephanie and her cohorts. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine:
