Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and Trenton vice cop Joe Morelli join forces to find the madman killer who shot and barbecued the youngest son of international black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos.

Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, is caught on video just minutes before the crime occurs. He's at the scene, he's with the victim, and he's the number-one suspect. Ranger is former special forces turned soldier of fortune. He has a blue-chip stock portfolio and no known address. He moves in mysterious circles. He's Stephanie's mentor--the man who taught her everything she knows about fugitive apprehension. And he's more than her friend.

Now he's the hunted and Stephanie's the hunter, and it's time for her to test her skills against the master. But if she does catch him...what then? Can she bring herself to turn him in?

Plus there are other things keeping Stephanie awake at night. Her maternal grandmother has set up housekeeping in Stephanie's apartment, a homicidal maniac has selected Stephanie as his next victim, her love life is in the toilet, she's adopted a dog with an eating disorder, and she can't button the top snap on her Levi's.

Experience the world of Plum--in Janet Evanovich's new thriller. It's surreal, it's frenetic, it's incendiary. Hot Six . It's the best yet.

BOTTOM-LINE:
Plum vs. Ranger…talk about a mismatch
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Plum's got her latest assignment, no problem. She just has to bring in Ranger, a suspect in the death of a wanna-be gangster, the son of an arms dealer.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
As with most things Plum, there's a lot going on … Grandma has moved in, she gets stuck babysitting a wild dog, and there's a killer running around who likes Stephanie. Plus we get to see an old high school pal, Moon Man, who is frequently fun since the elevator doesn't all the way to the top floors.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The whole sub-story with gun-runners and missing money, and Ranger being "wanted" gets a little ridiculous after awhile.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

This is the 6th book in the series. I think each book just gets funnier!

Janet Evanovich is a brilliant writer. I love her fascinating characters in the Stephanie Plum series. They are filled with humor, unexpected twists. I laugh so hard and out loud at times it makes my stomach muscles hurt - which is great. I can relate to the quirks and craziness of Stephanie and Lula and their rational for doing the crazy take downs of FTA (Failure to Appear) criminals. I highly recommend the series - they are true treasures.

Just started reading this series, and this one was the funniest so far. I laughed out loud, so hard, I was crying! This was the best one yet!

Stephanie does it again - love the family drama as much as the plot.
