Stephanie Plum's romantic vacation was a disaster, and she's not talking about it. And neither are Ranger or Morelli. As if that wasn't enough, the moment she gets back to New Jersey, she finds herself in a whole mountain of trouble and for once it isn't her fault. The guy next to her on the plane never got back on after the layover, and now Stephanie finds out that the reason was because he's dead. The dead man had a lot of people interested in him because of a photo he was carrying. Turns out, only one other person saw that photo, and that was Stephanie Plum. Unfortunately, Stephanie swears it was a photo of Tom Cruise and all those interested parties don't believe her.
As if that wasn't enough, the bus that has been the new bonds office got blown up, Lula is under a potion and falls in love with a skip, and Stephanie's enemy Joyce Barnhardt forces Stephanie to let her move in her apartment and help her solve a case.
In this novel, Stephanie learns what it's like to be on the other end of a chase, and she doesn't like it one bit.
