Janet Evanovich is the hottest author in America, and her Stephanie Plum novels have taken the nation by storm!

She's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. Her mother's convinced she'll end up dead . . . or worse, without a man. She's Stephanie Plum, and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thinks it sounds good to put it that way. . . .).

It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum, except that she becomes the target of a gang---and of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger acting more mysteriously than ever (and the tension with vice cop Joe Morelli getting hotter), she finds herself with a decision to make: how to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as the Junkman. There's only one safe place, and it has Ranger's name all over it---if she can find it. And if the Junkman doesn't find her first. With Lula riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock in her most suspenseful novel yet. Ten Big Ones is page-turning entertainment, and Janet Evanovich is the best there is.

Quotes & Awards

  • Narrator King somehow makes the crazy, comic antics of Evanovich's irresistible bond agent, Stephanie Plum, seem almost rational in this fine audio adaptation....With plenty of prior experience narrating Evanovich titles, King has no trouble highlighting the eccentricities of the author's invariably quirky cast of characters....King's chameleon voice and ease with accents make this a lively listening experience. Publishers Weekly on To the Nines
  • Narrator King steps neatly into Stephanie's shoes, her agile voice conveying not only Stephanie's fear and frustration, but her plaintive, why-does-this-always-happen-to-me attitude. King also nails the manly, mysterious voice of gorgeous bounty hunter Ranger, Stephanie's sometime superhero...her vocal stylings are generally as superb as Evanovich's zany characterization. Publishers Weekly on To the Nines

  • “Narrator Lorelei King does a fabulous job, as each character is assigned a distinctive voice, thus milking the humor for every drop. The Boston Globe on To the Nines

Listener Opinions

    " I've read every one of the Stephanie Plum books, and hands down, this is my favorite of them all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/16/2014

    " I have enjoyed all of the Stephanie Plum novels, but for some reason the character really annoyed me in this one. She seemed extra whiney and indecisive. "

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

    " Probably the series that is the most fun to read. Quick too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 2/13/2014

    " "The guy at your window is saying something, what's he saying?" "How would I know," Lula said. "It's gangsta talk shit. Something about kill the bitches. And now he's licking the glass. You're gonna have to Clorox this car if we ever get out of here." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/3/2014

    " okay, i know five stars is crazy for one of these kinds of books, but i had never read one by her and it was just hysterical. That said, i read another one and only give it 2 stars, because it's a style that seems original, fun, exciting, hilarious, and everything THE FIRST TIME, but I get the feeling that all the other books have the same jokes and it's used up, to me. But I'm trying not to be ashamed to give it all those stars, based on just pure enjoyment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 1/28/2014

    " I think this is the last of the Stephanie Plum Novels I listened to. Moderately entertaining, even amusing at times, an easy listen while working. I was disappointed when they changed readers after 3 or 4 books, the new one is more annoying, but that might be on purpose, enhance the Jersey girl feeling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 1/28/2014

    " Janet Evanovich is my measuring stick for great reading entertainment. Simply put.....I sit down with one of her tales about Stephanie and say, "Janet, tell me a story"......then I get up a few hours later and begin the wait for her next book. Janet...you're so cool! "
