Not the best in the series, but still imminently enjoyable.

Perfect to read a sunny spring weekend. A little laughter, some vehicles destroyed, complicated relationships..
Review by wyvernfriend
There were a couple of genuine laugh-out-loud moments in this but I don't understand Ranger's patience, nor Morelli's. Really Stephanie is spoilt rotten having both of them rescuing her on a regular basis! This time Stephanie has to visit her ex, Dickie Orr to plant some tracers for Ranger on him. This was a mistake, Dickie brings out the worst in Stephanie and she attacks him, which leads to her being a prime suspect when he disappears leaving a trail of blood!Dickie's partners start turning up dead and now Joyce, Dickie's new squeeze is looking to find Dickie and possibly to kill Stephanie, and as usual Stephanie is bungingling her way to solving the crime.It's pure mind candy, entertaining stuff but nothing serious.
