It’s the last race of the season, the wheels are smoking, and the temperature is rising at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Alexandra Barnaby is NASCAR driver Sam Hooker’s race-day spotter, his eye-in-the-sky, telling Hooker when to pass and when to get off the gas. From her vantage point high above the grandstand she’s also seeing things going on in the infield that will change her life. Things that will lead to a stolen racecar hauler, a kidnapped Saint Bernard, a bizarre murder, some restless nights under the covers with Hooker, and a reunion with super cigar roller Rosa Florez and the queen of wholesale fruit Felicia Ibarra.

From Miami, Florida, to Concord, North Carolina, and back again this is an action-packed multi–car crash of shady dealings, stolen technology, drive-thru windows, and destruction of personal property—everything you always wanted to know about righteous indignation, stealing an eighteen-wheeler, stashing a dead body, and sex in the fast lane.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] cool comedy thriller from bestseller Evanovich…The pages fly by as the racy tension between Hooker and Barney adds heat to the fun. Action on the menu includes destruction of valuable race cars, a dognapping, and a kidnapping.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Evanovich, of Stephanie Plum fame, appears to have another winner on her hands: this one is every bit as lively as Metro Girl, the first in the Barney series.”

    Booklist

  • “Fans of Evanovich’s Plum novels…will be more than satisfied with the equally endearing heroine Alexandra Barnaby. Powered by Evanovich’s uproarious sense of humor and masterful knack for eccentric characterization…readers who enjoy humorous mysteries (and especially those who are also auto racing fans) will thoroughly relish this wildly entertaining romp through the heart of NASCAR country.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Moore | 2/15/2014

    " much better than the first one. When you get to know an author's main character like Stephanie Plum, her others can seem like pale imitations. that's what Alex seemed like at first. But i think i am getting to like her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annamarie | 2/14/2014

    " Liked it - not as good as the first one though (Metro Girl). Can't wait for the third to come out this summer (Trouble Maker)! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill M. | 1/29/2014

    " Interesting story line. I'm not really into NASCAR, but I would imagine this would be great for a female fan. Interesting characters but I think I like Stephanie Plum better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Layne | 1/27/2014

    " Not as good as the Stephanie Plum series but a pretty good story overall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alissa | 1/16/2014

    " The second extension into this series, very entertaining. The situations are even crazier and the humor is still just as funny. "

    " Janet what more can I say "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patsy | 12/23/2013

    " quick, fun, light.... read it in a day on vacation. good beach read if there is nothing else around "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Weebly | 12/20/2013

    " This was a fun light hearted romp, with many of the same elements as the Stephanie Plum novels, a sassy woman, a sexy man (I agree not as sexy as Ranger) and a large dog who poops and smells! Not quite as good as the Plum novels, but an excellent substitute while waiting for the next installments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Honor | 12/12/2013

    " SUPER cheesy. All about NASCAR, which I had no idea when I started it...yet strangely compelling...I feel dirty...A good fast read. Candy for the brain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adrianne Credo | 12/8/2013

    " thus was my first evanovich novel and it was GREAT! it had me laughing, scared and everything but cry. I recommend this book! "

    " Not as good as the Plum novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 10/10/2013

    " Funny book, I laughed out loud at times. The 2nd in the series, I hope JE writes more in this series. She let her son do a "grahic novel" (comic book for adults) for the 3rd installment, we'll see how good it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janay | 8/15/2013

    " This was a good book and I would read it again!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brooklyn | 12/10/2012

    " I got about half way through before I was too bored to keep going. I loved the first book (metro girl) but this was difficult to get through... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christi | 11/29/2012

    " A great read...I don't know where Janet E. comes up with some of her ideas but wow! are they great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 10/1/2012

    " Not quite as good as the first book in the series, but a good fix of Janet Evanovich fun nevertheless! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 7/30/2012

    " Just as always Evanovich weaves a terrific story full of loveable, entertaining, and fun characters. It was exciting to see Hooker and Barney back in action with the addition of Beans the dog. It was a fun read full of great twists and turns, and in true Evanovich story telling, humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie S. | 7/10/2012

    " It took me longer get into this one but it was good. I prefer her Stephanie Plum series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith Galman | 4/18/2012

    " Likeable, but not as laugh-out-loud funny as the early Stephanie Plum books. At least when Evanovich writes about NASCAR, she's got something more interesting to talk about than track decking and how many races Dale Earnhardt won (see St. Dale; better yet, don't). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 2/15/2012

    " Listening to the audio book. "

    " Janet Evanovich just makes me laugh out loud. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DH | 8/5/2011

    " A light and refreshing read. Nothing too serious with a little fun and humor mixed in. Definitely looking forward to reading the Stephanie Plum series. Not sure why it took me so long to actually read an Evanovich book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindi | 5/23/2011

    " Missed Sally but enjoyed the added little dude. I love how imperfect Stephanie is. And I really really really like Ranger more and more... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 5/10/2011

    " Novels one through four were 5star reads but High Five had an extra kick to it! Loving this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 5/7/2011

    " Really cool book. Like the others :) just one thing to say... I really, really hope Ranger gets the black dress dressed Steph (; "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 5/6/2011

    " Another exciting read. Morelli is boring go for Ranger. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 4/27/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 4/22/2011

    " Listening to the book on cd while I drive. The narrator is fantastic!

    Verdict: Very entertaining- suspenseful, funny AND sexy. I know that listening to these books cuts into my valuable NPR time, but I just have to request #6. I can't wait to find out what's coming next for Stephanie! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosalind | 4/19/2011

    " Excellent! My favourite so far. "
