To The Nines by Janet Evanovich
Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty damn good at turning situations her way...and she always gets her man.
Her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, who mysteriously disappears just as his work visa is running out. and Stephanie is on the case to ensure the elusive Mr Singh doesn't make his disappearance more permanent. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give a whole new meaning to the word hunter. In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.
The last time I read a Stephanie Plum book was in May. To the Nines is the 9th book in the series. It's quite considerate of the author to title the series this way. Easy for readers to keep track of them. However, I really do not know how does the title To The Nines relates to the storyline.
Stephanie was tasked by Vinnie to look for Samuel Singh. Naturally, Singh wasn't easy to find and Ranger was assigned to work with Stephanie in looking for Singh. The search took Stephanie to Vegas and both Lola and Connie tagged alone. Ranger also assigned his 'Merry Men' to keep an eye on Stephanie as she as become a prize in a killing game. What else is new you might say? Nothing much actually but if you have read this series and enjoyed the other books, you will enjoy this one too.
Grandma Mazur wasn't really featured much in this book. However, Stephanie kept getting reports of visions about her from Grandma Bella (Joe Morelli's grandmother) from her having babies to her dying.
And for once, Stephanie didn't blew up her car. That, was new.
