Plum Spooky , the First Full Length Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers Novel from #1 Bestselling Author Janet Evanovich.

Turn on all the lights and check under your bed. Things are about to get spooky in Trenton, New Jersey.

According to legend, the Jersey Devil prowls the Pine Barrens and soars above the treetops in the dark of night. As eerie as this might seem, there are things in the Barrens that are even more frightening and dangerous. And there are monkeys. Lots of monkeys.

Wulf Grimoire is a world wanderer and an opportunist who can kill without remorse and disappear like smoke. He's chosen Martin Munch, boy genius, as his new business partner, and he's chosen the Barrens as his new playground.

Munch received his doctorate degree in quantum physics when he was twenty-two. He's now twenty-four, and while his brain is large, his body hasn't made it out of the boys' department at Macy's. Anyone who says good things come in small packages hasn't met Munch. Wulf Grimoire is looking for world domination. Martin Munch would be happy if he could just get a woman naked and tied to a tree.

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has Munch on her most-wanted list for failure to appear in court. Plum is the all-American girl stuck in an uncomfortable job, succeeding on luck and tenacity. Usually she gets her man. This time she gets a monkey. She also gets a big guy named Diesel.

Diesel pops in and out of Plum's life like birthday cake - delicious to look at and taste, not especially healthy as a steady diet, gone by the end of the week if not sooner. He's an über bounty hunter with special skills when it comes to tracking men and pleasing women. He's after Grimoire, and now he's also after Munch. And if truth were told, he wouldn't mind setting Stephanie Plum in his crosshairs.

Diesel and Plum hunt down Munch and Grimoire, following them into the Barrens, surviving cranberry bogs, the Jersey Devil, a hair-raising experience, sand in their underwear, and, of course . . . monkeys.

This was action-packed and had more substance than the other between the numbers novels. It was a hoot to have Carl the Monkey come back and star with some other nameless monkeys. Diesel is starting to bore me, though. Have a feeling he won't be back anytime soon. Lulu is going strong. Her adventures with Stephanie are some of my favorite passages. I've said it before: they remind me of Lucy and Ethel.

Better than some of the more recent formulaic Plum titles, I enjoy the extra characters in the between the numbers books.

I enjoyed this book for the second time. It is a shame that it's also the last of the in between the number books.

If you have read and liked the other Stephanie Plum books, this one will not disappoint. It is Stephanie at her best as usual and you really gotta love Lula. This book is one to keep the cravings at bay until the next numbered book comes out.

My grandmother had a name for work like Evanovich's; toothache books. They aren't going change your life or even make you htink too deeply, but you will chuckle an occasionally guffaw.

This "in-between the numbers" book finds Diesel reappearing in Stephanie's life, this time after a man named Wulf who is working with one of Stephanie's FTAs. Only problem, Wulf seems to be able to shoot electricity out of his hands and dissappear at will. Stephanie reluctantly agrees to work with the hunky Diesel, if only to get his help out capturing the missing FTA . . . and get him out of her apartment.

Much better than Finger Licking Fifteen, as Evanovich has be judicious in her use of Lula. Just enough for thehumour, but not so much as to be annoying. This is a great way to spend unwind when you are stressed and just need some brain candy, but nothing more.
