Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck….
Stephanie's cousin Vinnie of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds has run up a $786,000 gambling debt with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash is paid. Since Vinnie is on the outs with his wife and father-in-law, no one will pay leaving it up to Stephanie along with office manager Connie and Lula to raise the money in order to save Vinnie and more importantly their jobs. As they are in the business of tracking down people they decide to find out where Vinnie is being stashed so they can free him and hopefully buy some extra time. Of course, things don't go quite to plan and the interest on the debt continues to rise to over a million. The bottle mentioned in the teaser does play a part in all this.
Walter “Moon Man” Dunphy’ makes a welcome return to the supporting cast and his attempt to organise a Hobbit-Con is one of the highly amusing sub-plots for this instalment of the popular series. I am very fond of the books and they are proving very entertaining listens.
