Sassy bounty hunter Stephanie Plum joins a rich cast of characters, with feisty Grandma Mazur, who keeps her .38 in the cookie jar, the most endearing. Geriatric Eddie DeChooch didn't appear for his court date, which puts him on Plum’s list. Lorelei King delivers accents and a variety of ages with seamless credibility. She characterizes buffoonish potheads with appropriate hipster lingo and a slow, deliberate delivery. And her rendering of Grandma Mazur, with an elderly, breathless, sometimes crackling, voice is superb. Filled with several laugh-out-loud moments, the seventh in the Plum series, never disappoints. A bonus interview with the author is included. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
