Janet Evanovich's #1 New York Times-bestselling sensation Stephanie Plum returns in her twenty-fourth captivating thriller, where corpses litter the streets of New Jersey.
Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semiprofessional loon Simon Diggery won't let her take him in until she agrees to care for his boa constrictor, Ethel. Stephanie's main qualification for babysitting an extremely large snake is that she owns a taser--whether that's for use on the wandering serpent or the petrified neighbors remains to be seen.
Events take a dark turn when headless bodies start appearing across town. At first it's just corpses from a funeral home and the morgue that have had the heads removed. But when a homeless man is murdered and dumped behind a church, Stephanie knows that she's the only one with a prayer of catching this killer.
If all that's not enough, Diesel's back in town. The six-foot-tall, blond-haired hunk is a man who accepts no limits--that includes locked doors, closed windows, and underwear. Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, isn't pleased at this unexpected arrival, nor is Ranger, the high-powered security consultant who has his own plans for Stephanie.
As usual, Jersey's favorite bounty hunter is stuck in the middle, with more questions than answers. What's the deal with Grandma Mazur's latest online paramour? Who is behind the startling epidemic of mutilated corpses? And is the enigmatic Diesel's sudden appearance a coincidence or the cause of recent deadly events?

“The best way to experience Evanovich is by having narrator Lorelei King bring to life Stephanie, Lula, Morelli, Ranger, Diesel, Grandma Mazur, and all the other lovable and sometimes despicable secondary characters. King’s skill in consistently projecting timbre, tone, intonation, and accent allows the listener to know immediately which character is speaking. She’s a master narrator who expertly conveys sexy males (and there are three in this book), females of different ethnicities, the young, and the very old. While Stephanie’s life remains frustratingly static, King’s performance of Lula and Grandma Mazur will still make listeners laugh out loud. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
