Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet.

The Crime: Armed robbery to the tune of nine million dollars

Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one.

The Cousin: Joe Morelli

Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

The Complications: Murder, kidnapping, destruction of personal property, and acid reflux

Less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Joe Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house and dying in his basement. He's getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped, and Dom is missing.

The Catastrophe: Moonman

Morelli hires Walter "Mooner" Dunphy, stoner and "inventor" turned crime fighter, to protect his house. Morelli can't afford a lot on a cop's salary, and Mooner will work for potatoes.

The Cupcake: Stephanie Plum

Stephanie and Morelli have a long-standing relationship that involves sex, affection, and driving each other nuts. She's a bond enforcement agent with more luck than talent, and she's involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one.

The Crisis: A favor for Ranger

Security expert Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, has a job for Stephanie that will involve night work. Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie's evening activities.

The Conclusion: Only the fearless should listen to Fourteen.

Thrills, chills, and incontinence may result.

Quotes & Awards

  • Evanovich's series is as addictive as Fritos...Evanovich serves up consistently craveable goodies. People

  • Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter with a great sense of humor that balances out her attitude and worse luck...like Dorothy Parker with a lousy job and a Jersey accent. Time
  • “Lorelei King gives a fantastic performance of Janet Evanovich's latest comedic mystery caper involving New Jersey bail bondswoman Stephanie Plum and her compatriots…. relax and enjoy Evanovich's tight writing and King's amazing reading of everyone from Stephanie to tough cops to adolescent boys to a Big Black Mama of a woman. Add spot-on conversations, real-life phrasing, such as breathlessness when Stephanie's chasing a con, and an end-of-book interview of Evanovich by King, and you have the perfect listen.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty | 2/9/2014

    " Definitely not the highlight of the series. Not enough Ranger, the laugh moments were more forced silliness than the usual zaniness, the mystery was even less fleshed out than usual, and seriously, not much happened at all. It was, however, a very quick read. But given the reasons for that, that's not really a good thing. And Not.Enough.Ranger. Morelli is plenty hot too, but he's clearly made hotter by Ranger's hotness. Take Ranger away or only dole him in small doses, and Morelli's hotness gets toned down too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abra | 2/5/2014

    " Wow, I'm not sure why this got so many terrible reviews. I thought it was very funny and is possibly one of my favorites since back in the beginning of this series. I liked how Mooner was back for this book too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb Kapinus | 2/4/2014

    " I love Janet Evanovich. I have read all except the latest in the series and I just checked that one out of the library. Her series with Motor Mouth in it is hysterical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 2/3/2014

    " This has been the best and funniest of the Stephanie Plum books I have read in a while. I love the series but over time, like anything else, things tend to get tired and run the same course over and over. Janet Evanovich added a couple quirky characters, brought back a couple more and you have pure slapstick comedy which I love. The best part Stephanie ends up looking like a smurf. This is not great literature, just plain fun and while I am a serious reader, I love to laugh and Stephanie, Lula, Joe and Ranger, and the rest of the gang that make up their world are guaranteed to entertain you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Helms | 2/1/2014

    " This has to be the most madcap book. It has a very different feel to it, and there are a LOT of characters in this one (including the return of Moondog! Yay!) Story one involves Stephanie Plum working security with Ranger for an older, egotistical musician, Brenda. Story 2 starts when Stephanie tries to bring in a distant cousin of Joe Morelli's - and winds up having to babysit the woman's teenage son. The babysitting arrangement winds up lasting much longer after the woman, Loretta, disappears. Stephanie and Joe realize it's connected to $9 million that was robbed from a bank and never recovered. Another Morelli cousin, Dom, was jailed for the robbery and Dom hates Joe with a passion. There are strangers digging in Morelli's yard looking for the money at all hours, the son, Mooner and another guy working security detail with a variety of produce, and Lula making wedding plans for her marriage to Tank (who is completely confused and unsettled by the whole engagement thing). Like I said, it's madcap! "

    " Not a fan of Zook. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill | 1/19/2014

    " I "read" it as an audio book on a car trip. It is funny and served to keep me awake while driving several hundred miles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JackieB | 1/10/2014

    " This had me laughing out loud. I loved the over the top characters she created for this novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phaedra | 1/6/2014

    " Maybe after 14 books in a row I should take a break. The predictability is soothing, but this morning I woke up totally unable to remember whether or not I finished the book! Looking for the next junk food series to read. (Hey, I'm not knocking junk food, but it is what it is!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 12/23/2013

    " Could have given up after a few chapters but kept going. Had a good laugh and finished it. wouldn't read another one of her books though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janis Barry | 12/18/2013

    " Very enjoyable with laughing out loud. This series of books is just fun to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherri | 11/11/2013

    " I get a kick out of the whole Plum series, however, this one was REALLY entertaining. I think I laughed out loud the most with #14. It was a lot of fun!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Eisenmenger | 11/9/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 marymurtz | 10/17/2013

    " Always entertaining and a fast read, this was some (I thought) well-deserved brain candy in the middle of some more serious books. As usual, several laugh out loud moments (think Monkeys and bouffant hairdos) and great characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 10/11/2013

    " I have read all of the Stephanie Plum novels. Light easy reading when you just want some entertainment. "

    " Time for something light hearted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda (LoveofJoe11) | 9/1/2013

    " Quite a nice refreshing new mystery in the Stephanie Plum Series. Rather than Stephanie chasing after a random skip, the mystery involved family members. It was a nice way to learn more about Morelli and his family and I felt strengthened the main characters. As always, I love grandma Mazur! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenda L | 5/3/2013

    " Murder, Mayham and Silliness ... this is the theme for Janet Evanovich's books ... but how fun they are to read. I like them very much when I don't want to "think." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia Thomason | 1/2/2013

    " Not my fav of the Stephanie Plum books but still pretty darned good. Very entertaining. As usual the recurring characters make me laugh. "

    " This funny "numbers" series follows Stephanie Plum, Pacifist bountyhunter, and her dilemmas, trials and relationships. Each book is light and fluffy, not meant for seriousness, but not meant for the overly serious either. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanne | 4/22/2011

    " A good one. Seems like the last several have been a little lackluster but I thought 13 and 14 were great. I'd like to see more of Zook and Moose and Gary the stalker. They were fun. "
