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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kip | 2/20/2014

    " DECENT BOOK - A LITTLE UNREAL, BUT DECENT "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/10/2014

    " Cute, funny and are these two ever going to get out of trouble? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 2/9/2014

    " I think I liked this one better than the first one. The plot flowed from one crazy event to another very smoothly, so it didn't feel like just a random collection of stupid things. Yes, they were still stupid and random, but it made sense in a way, so it was good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Otto | 2/7/2014

    " I'm not generally opposed to chick lit as a matter of principle. I read and enjoyed several of Janet Evanovich's early books, the Stephanie Plum detective series. But, this book is terrible. The plot has no plausibility; the characters are caricatures; there is nothing good about the writing. If the infinite monkey theorem (a monkey hitting random keys on a typewriter will eventually produce the complete works of Shakespeare,)has any validity, this novel must have been produced by a gorilla with a stick in five minutes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 2/6/2014

    " It was fantastic and you know it rocks when the leading lady gets way more hits in on the bad guys than the leading man. It's a great series so far. "

    " Story line is around NASCAR life. So for starters, I wasn't interested in that. So would have to say this wasn't one of the best of Evanovich. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 12/29/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy Neal | 6/5/2011

    " I enjoy Janet Evanovich. NASCAR is the theme of this book with a female spotter and male driver trying to solve a murder in which they are implicated. Complete with sparks between the two, a St. Bernard puppy and some great friends from the barrio. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lori | 5/15/2011

    " This book was a refreshing change from what I have been reading. It is more of a murder mystery but with some wacky sense of humor in it. There is some cussing in the book that can be offensive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nneutz | 5/8/2011

    " Up to this point I had only read the Stephanie Plum serious. The story line is very similar with a different character. Once again very easy reads. If you the love the Plum series you will like this one too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/28/2011

    " Glad to know I am not the only one with horrible luck!! Although, they have worse luck than me :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 2/7/2011

    " It's the first chick lit novel where the chick dazzles the stud with her engineering prowess. It's also funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 2/5/2011

    " Having already read Metro Girl, I was looking forward to the sequel. It was disappointing. The plot was contrived and seemed to drag on endlessly. There was no real tension between the lead characters. While parts were humorous, the entirety was somewhat bland. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janine | 1/29/2011

    " As always a cute little mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 1/20/2011

    " Another entertaining series by Janet Evanovich. This book was a little more grisly than her others, but still in a sort of comic book way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hwendt | 1/8/2011

    " I laughed the whole time! I love racing! And the story line is crazy! One thing after another never a dull moment. "
