Janet Evanovich’s #1 New York Times bestselling sensation Stephanie Plum returns in her twenty-forth thriller as mutilated corpses litter the streets of New Jersey... 

Trouble comes in bunches for Stephanie Plum. First, professional grave robber and semi-professional 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 stun gun—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 6-foot-tall, blonde-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?  


  • Great Laughs

    By Readalot2
    Some of the book seemed tired but any book that can make me laugh out loud is one I will buy and I do every time I read one of these.
  • Not one of the best

    By Travelingirl09
    I love the Stephanie plumb series. That being said this one did not have an interesting plot line or as many funny lines. If you are tired of zombie story lines I'd skip this one.
  • So much fun

    By Patmonych
    Can’t stop laughing. Couldn’t put the book down. Love this series and this story. Have to read it again immediately and bet it will be exciting and as funny the second time. Truly a book you literally can’t put down.

    I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan, but this book was not my favorite. Great ending but I had a hard time staying with it.
  • Not quite Hardcore

    By kukabearis#1
    So disappointed and hard to write this review, but... This book is not near the quality that Janet adheres too. I wish I had waited for reviews to come out before buying it. It seemed like someone else wrote the book for Janet and there was a deadline to meet.
  • Needs to end

    By Cagle520
    All these books are just alike but I put this one down & didn’t pick it up again. 😕 If you like books that aren’t predictable don’t read these.
  • Fun, but done?

    By Bookbitch 101
    Very enjoyable as always. It just seemed to wrap up really easily and quickly yet it didn’t really feel complete.
  • Disappointed

    By La Gato13
    I waited with great expectations for this book, yet I not even 1/3 done, the title page reads Stephanie Plum book, so what is diesel doing in this book? And where is the humor?
  • Great romp!
