Tricky Twenty-two

Tricky Twenty-Two (Stephanie Plum, #22)

Tricky Twenty-Two is the latest of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels.

Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute.

Stephanie Plum might not be the world's greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she's being played.  Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College.  Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding.  People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk.  Things aren't adding up, and Stephanie can't shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college- and it's not just Zeta fraternity pranks.

As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken.  When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it's good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long.  The only people who care about finding Linken's killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who has hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.

The Breakdown:
1. Evanovich's books are always good for a laugh.  The Stephanie Plum series is my favorite of hers.  Over the years, I have really come to love the characters and all their quirky craziness. These books never fail to keep me entertained.

2. I am amazed at the ways that Evanovich keeps coming up with to destroy Stephanie's cars. It is one the things I look forward to in these books. What will happen to Stephanie's car this time? It amazes that she is able to get insurance. ;)

3. I particularly liked this books FTA's Gobbles, the frat boy, and Billy "Bacon" who greased himself in bacon grease to get down an chimney.  Plus the Gobbles story line leads to some strange happenings at Kitlman College, which kept me very interested.
