Either I've read way too many Stephanie Plum novels lately or "Lean Mean Thirteen" by Janet Evanovich is one of the weaker books in the series. Probably a little of both.
Despite having some amusing side stories about grave digging and exploding taxidermy, my heart just wasn't in this installment of Stephanie Plum's adventures as a New Jersey bounty hunter. The ending did help salvage the book a little. I have two more books to go in the series and then I can just read the new novels yearly instead of several throughout the year. Recommended if you're reading the series in order or a huge fan, otherwise skip it if this is your first experience with Evanovich's heroine Stephanie Plum.
Quote: Ranger to Stephanie: “Babe, you’ve destroyed a car, burned down two buildings, stapled a guy’s nuts, and you have sixteen stitches in your leg. Take a night off. Have a glass of wine, watch some television, and go to bed early.”
Car deaths: 1 (What's up with that? Though Stephanie did kill many buildings in this installment).
