When Stephanie Plum is woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of footsteps in her apartment, she wishes she didn’t keep her gun in the cookie jar in her kitchen. And when she finds out the intruder is fellow apprehension agent Diesel, six feet of hard muscle and bad attitude who she hasn’t seen in more than two years, she still thinks the gun might come in handy.
Turns out Diesel and Stephanie are on the trail of the same fugitive: Oswald Wednesday, an international computer hacker as brilliant as he is ruthless. Stephanie may not be the most technologically savvy sleuth, but she more than makes up for that with her dogged determination, her understanding of human nature, and her willingness to do just about anything to bring a fugitive to justice. Unsure if Diesel is her partner or her competition in this case, she’ll need to watch her back every step of the way as she sets the stage to draw Wednesday out from behind his computer and into the real world.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from Netgalley. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
I read the first couple Stephanie Plum books a long time ago and really enjoyed them so when I got the chance to read number 28, I was excited to read it. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. It didn’t seem as witty or as funny as I remembered. What really struck me is that the dialogue seemed flat.
Game On is okay, but nothing to write home about. I don’t think I’ll be going back to read more of this series.
