Personal vendettas, hidden treasure and a monkey named Carl send Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet. Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the cash and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. Dom's sister, Loretta, is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. Loretta's cousin is Joe Morelli - the cop. They're the all-American family. Less than a week after Dom's release from prison, Morelli has shadowy figures breaking into his house - and dying in his basement. He's getting threatening messages, Loretta is kidnapped and Dom is missing. Stephanie Plum - Morelli's long-standing partner - has been involved in this bank-robbery-gone-bad disaster from day one. She's been asked to do a favour for Ranger, a job that will involve night work. But Morelli has his own ideas regarding Stephanie's evening activities.
