Another mystery within a mystery. Who is responsible for the deaths? Is Kenny guilty? Will Stephanie and Morelli get together? I would have liked this better if they had spent less time inside a funeral home, although I agree with other reviewers that Grandma Mazur is a real star in this one. Still, more gruesome than the first book. ( )

Stephanie is after another bail jumper and half racing, half teaming up with Morelli to the see who can solve the mystery and catch Kenny first. But when Kenny threatens Grandma Mazur, all bets are off...

I really enjoyed this installment and after 2 books I have to say..... Stephanie really needs to invest in some home security equipment, and I just love her Grandma! ( )

2nd book in the Stephanie Plum mystery series. In this one she's doing her normal job of a bounty hunter and also takes on a side job looking for some missing caskets. Fun easy read like most of the Evanovich books I've read. This one starts to flesh out some of the side characters more. Lula makes a brief appearance. And Grandma Mazur is just about a driving force through this one with her going to funeral visitations for socializing. ( )

Book description
Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues in the knee and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down.

Then someone finishes Moogey off, Kenny can't be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there's some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets. And Joe Morelli - the cop with more than a professional interest in her every move - is tailing Stephanie.

With a healthy disregard for the law, and an unhealthy dependence on marshmallow hot chocolate, Stephanie's a match for anyone - even Morelli. That is, until her eccentric grandmother goes AWOL and little pieces of corpses start to disappear...
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312948964, Mass Market Paperback)

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is still learning the ropes at her cousin Vinnie's bail bond office, so when she sets out on the trail of Kenny Mancuso--a suspiciously wealthy, working class Trenton boy who has just shot his best friend--the stakes are higher than ever. That Mancuso is distantly related to vice cop Joe Morelli--who is trying to beat Stephanie to the punch--only makes the hunt more thrilling….
Taking pointers from her bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and using her pistol-packing Granda Mazur as a decoy, Stephanie is soon closing in on her mark. But Morelli and his libido are worthy foes. And a more sinister kind of enemy has made his first move…and his next move might be Stephanie's last.
