Stephanie Plum faces the toughest puzzle of her career in the twenty-fifth entry in Janet Evanovich's #1 New York Times-bestselling series.
There's nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, cole slaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that's been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it's a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they'd better figure out what's going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.

Great series! 45
Crazy, funny, suspenseful...I loved it! I try to picture the characters from the movie for #1, I've started adding faces and changing a few as I read more. It would be fabulous to see a movie series of these books! Please keep writing more?!?!!! 55
Very disappointing. Lacked th trademark humor of the series. 25
I know that these books make a lot of money and they are enjoyable but they are just fluff now. After 25 books her characters have not moved or grown at all. I know so many that have given up. I keep hoping the next book will be the one. Do you just want to make money or do you care about your books and their characters. Do something Each book gets more boring and more frustrating. She's ruining a good thing. 25
I loved it very much never disappoints 55
It’s Groundhogs Day with this tiresome book. After 25, enough bouncing back and forth between Ranger and Morelli. How about a new man who will commit in 26? Improbable story and not enough Grandma! 25
I have loved the series until the last few editions. More extreme vulgarity that supersedes the humor. It use to be funny when referencing a man’s Willy wonka was worded for humor, not double X shock talk. The plots are more smorgasbord rerun than new growth. Can the story be switched up- Let Stephanie own the bonds business and become Vinnie’s boss and LuLu and Connie do takedown. Let Stephanie rescue Ranger and Morelli. 35
Did Janet Evanovich even write this book? I have been a long time fan and wear my “babe” t-shirt while reading my newest book in this series. It’s going to be retired, and I won’t waste my time or money on this series again. So sad. Stephanie and Lula will just have to live on in my imagination. What just happened?... 15
No surprises, no decisions, and no action. 25
