Larry Virgil skipped out on his court date after he was arrested for hijacking an eighteen-wheeler full of premium bourbon. Fortunately for bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, Larry is just stupid enough to try same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with ice cream and a dead body — frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans. Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the ice cream factory to find out who’s putting employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off the ice cream, and even harder for her to keep her hands off Ranger. It’s also going to be hard to explain to Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, why she’s spending late nights with Ranger, late nights with Lula and Randy Briggs—who are naked and afraid—and late nights keeping tabs on Grandma Mazur and her new fella. Steph has a lot on her plate, but these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.
