Miami is still freakin' humid. The nights are even hotter. And there's a body on ice. And that's just the beginning of this adrenaline-rush of a hot-wired ride from phenomenal number one New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

A woman with a taste for speed and a talent for breaking the rules, Barney also knows a little too much about cheating. First there was Hooker and that salesclerk. Now she's convinced one of the competitors is up to no good on the track. Snooping to find evidence, Hooker and Barney "borrow" a NASCAR hauler. Turns out, the hauler is carrying two race cars and a dead guy. It looks like Barney and Hooker are facing multiple counts of grand theft auto and homicide.

So buckle up as Barney, Hooker, a 150-pound bundle of Saint Bernard love named Beans, and the Super Cigar Ladies Felicia and Rosa shift into gear on a wild race around South Florida and Concord, North Carolina.

Everything you always wanted to know about righteous indignation, stealing an eighteen-wheeler, and sex in the fast lane.

Topics: Florida, Miami, North Carolina, Series, Suspenseful, Funny, Adventurous, Murder, Crime, Kidnapping, Female Protagonist, and Women Detectives

Ok, so maybe the situations are a bit implausible, but I do adore Evanovich's style and crazy characters. Barney (Alex) and NASCAR guy (Sam) are at it again. Barney is a spotter for Sam's team. They're not together because he was doing a sales clerk, but she's still working with him. Another spotter (Gobbles) gets in a tight spot and then, well, in typical Evanovich fashion - everything falls apart. Barney and Sam hijack a car hauler of a competitor, rescue Gobbles, chop up two cars, find something suspicious and possibly illegal and find a dead body which Sam's St. Bernard, Beans, takes a bite. In the process of dumping the truck, Beans gets left behind and the bad guys are on to Barney and Sam. Of course they end up in Miami and Rosa and Felicia make an appearance. When a bad guy kidnaps a person, especially a foreign bad guy, I don't think they just threaten to chop off their fingers. I don't think henchmen get multilple chances to get it right, but to make the story more interesting - these guys do. This book besides being funny has enough suspense to make me worry that something bad is going to happen and someone is going to die. I highly recommend the Alex Barnaby series.read more

Metro Girl sequel and not as good as Evanovich's numeric series. Setting is the NASCAR circuit with a stolen microchip in the gear handle that leads to discovered dead bodies. Overly long section on feeding the dog prunes to have him "poop" the swallowed microchip out.read more

Lustig, spielt im US-Rennfahrermilieu. Keine hochgeistige Literatur, aber unterhaltsame Story mit sympathisch überzeichneten Charakteren.

I think I'm about done with Janet Evanovich. I like the humorous bits but those, and the discontinuities, are getting "old" for me.

Sequel to Metro Girl this is a fun read, nothing major and nothing amazing but an entertaining read.
