Diesel stops in at Stephanie's apartment in the middle of the night. It just so happens that he is on the trail of Oswald Wednesday, a computer hacker who skipped bail. So, Diesel and Stephanie decide to join forces. Seems that OW has plans for a huge hack and ransom, but a group of younger hackers, the Baked Potaoes, hacked their hacker hero OW. Now the Baked Potatoes are ending up dead. And, Lulu's moon is out of alignment, so she is having the bad luck which is normally reserved for Stephanie. This was a fun fast read. Evanovich never fails to entertain me! ( )

This 28th installment in the series didn’t quite hit the bull’s-eye for me, but it was still a pretty good tale. Not nearly enough Ranger and Morelli, it featured instead Diesel, another strange guy from Stephanie’s past. Steph and Diesel are both after a notorious computer hacker, who, naturally, turns out to be a deadly psycho. There are some darker moments, and not enough of the humor readers have come to expect. At least, Lula is still prominent, in more ways than one, and she really saves the book. Not Ms. Evanovich’s best effort, but still worth reading. ( )

This book is actually between 3.5 and 4 stars for me but closer to the 4 than the 3.5.

I'm not sure I like the new naming of the books where the number isn't a major part of the title--I guess I got used to the numbers. I didn't quite understand how "game on" fit with the plot.

I thought this book had a bit of the humor from the early books in the series. I thought that having the bad luck switch to Lula (from Stephanie) for part of the book was something different that hadn't been written for these characters multiple times. I do think someone in the Evanovich camp needs to research ways to destroy cars and come up with some more interesting ones because the ways it occurred in this book were mediocre and recycled.

I actually liked Melvin and Charlotte and hope that they end up as a couple and that we will see them in future books in the series.

I thought it a bit odd that at the beginning of the book Stephanie is very worried about being able to collect her body receipt for OW before Diesel spirits him away (partly because she wants the money and partly because she doesn't want Vinnie grousing at her about the bond he lost) but then at the end of the book, she makes no protest when Diesel and Wulf airlift the body. (We don't see Vinnie after that so we don't get his reaction to losing the bond or know whether he too has heard that OW left town. And does Morelli hearing that mean that Vinnie isn't on the hook for OW's bond any longer? (I don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure on how bonds work if the person dies and can't show up for trial.)

Who’s tramping through Stephanie Plum’s apartment in the middle of the night? Why, oh why, is the gun in the kitchen in the cookie jar?

Surprise of surprises, it turns out to be Diesel, reappearing after a more-than-two-year absence. It seems that both Stephanie and Diesel are after the same fugitive: the malevolent international computer hacker Oswald Wednesday.

And what brings Wednesday to Trenton? Someone has discovered the mysterious big project he is involved in, and he’s not about to let anyone get in the way of his biggest and best project yet.

Will Diesel be a help or a hindrance? Will Stephanie manage to find Wednesday before disaster befalls everyone? And how many cars will meet their demise while Stephanie’s tracking down those bail jumpers?

=========

Yes, Stephanie will do in at least one car; yes, Grandma Mazur will find a funeral home viewing to attend; yes, there will be at least one family dinner; yes, Lula, with her outrageous hair and questionable wardrobe, will be on the hunt for doughnuts and fried chicken. Yes, it’s quirky and often downright silly; yes, there are outrageous moments, and yes, there’s plenty of laugh-out-loud humor.

There’s something extremely comforting about knowing exactly what kinds of things will happen in the unfolding of a brand-new story in a long-running series. Predictability takes nothing away from the pleasure of spending time with old friends [although many readers are sure to wish that Stephanie would decide on which guy is the one meant for her].

The narrative for this, Stephanie Plum's twenty-eighth adventure, plays out much as readers assume it will, with a couple of unforeseen plot twists [and Wednesday’s humdinger of a big plan] to build some suspense. The lack of big surprises doesn’t hinder the telling of the tale; the characters readers have come to know and love are here, behaving exactly as expected. The story is fun, the visit with old friends, delightful.

Highly recommended. ( )
