Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college - and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks. As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.
I always say I'm going to quit reading these Stephanie Plum novels but I can't stop. Honestly.. this book was great so I'm glad I've kept going. These books are easy reads and just fun. If you read reviews about any of these books you'll learn that they all follow the same format.  Stephanie will never make any decisions regarding her love life.  Nothing.  But I guess I've settled with that now.  There is no character development with any of the characters.   If you are reading these books I'm here to let you know that this was way better then the last two books.  I almost gave up on this series because of those books.  But I am glad I didn't since this one was decent again.

For a minute there in this book Stephanie thought about a new career.  For about one minute.  She messes around with Ranger and Morelli, blows up some cars, goes to a wake, and all that same stuff. Honestly though people who are still reading this series at #22 should expect all this same stuff.  If you are reading this series still and thought this book was going to be different then the last 22 then I don't know what to tell you.  As I read through reviews all of us do want a little something different.  Something to mix up Stephanie's life.  Take her out of town on a big adventure chasing a bounty.  Add a third guy into her life.

Let's hope for some change in the next book... but at the same time not too much change right?
