Takedown Twenty

Takedown Twenty Summary


Powerhouse author Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels are “as entertaining as ever” (Entertainment Weekly), “brilliantly evocative” (The Denver Post), and “making trouble and winning hearts” (USA Today).

Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.
It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor. 
With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Janet Evanovich'sTop Secret Twenty-One.

I have read the series and have enjoyed it up until the last few books. It's the same old thing...and on this particular book, I'm on page 81 after a week ( usually finish in a day ).It isn't a page turner and I'm not certain I will even bother to read until the end. Unfortunately I don't think I will be reading any future books in this series...very disappointed. I wonder, is Janet Evanovich even writing these and if so, what happened?15

$7.00 increase??1 star

I just went to purchase this book as I have read the rest. Seeing the poor reviews I felt that $6.99 was reasonable. I hit purchase and it wouldn't let me buy saying it was being modified. I hit purchase again and it was $13.99. Rude iBooks, rude.15


Disappointed1 star

I love this series but this book was boring! Giraffe was just silly.15


Not even worth a 1/4 Star.1 star

Really, really disappointed. All the same characters stuck in time. The silly things that made me like them before now just annoy me because they fail to learn or grow. And the retuning to be a 'ho' again especially ticked me off. I viewed her a someone not ashamed of her past, but having grown. She'd grown and now went back in time? Freakin' annoying! I can understand wanting to avoid the "Moonlighting" phenomenon, but the supporting characters could at least move on with life. Tank and Lulu with kids could be funny.15

Could have gone minus stars! Have loved this series but this one was beyond boring. Lula is just plain annoying and I would have her shot. Stephanie has gone from perky to pathetic! So disappointed. Glad I didn't actually waste money on this book....15


SeriesNeeds to End3 star

Agree with others, seems like the same stuff, book after book. Very lame idea about the giraffe, etc. Stephanie needs to make a choice. Losing interest quickly. Move on already.35


Author is slipping?2 star

Not sure what to think of the latest installment in the series that I so enjoyed in the past. I’ve read of of Janet’s “Stephanie Plum Novels” And have like all of them. But a few books back, noticed that the writing was lacking any real developments in the plot. After you insert the part’s where the author put’s in who the character’s are, descriptions of, etc. There is so little there. Just disappointed.25
