Turbo Twenty-Three Book Summary


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the heart of Trenton, N.J., a killer is out to make sure someone gets his just desserts.
Larry Virgil skipped out on his latest 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 attempt almost the exact same crime again. Only this time he flees the scene, leaving behind a freezer truck loaded with Bogart ice cream and a dead body—frozen solid and covered in chocolate and chopped pecans.
As fate would have it, Stephanie’s mentor and occasional employer, Ranger, needs her to go undercover at the Bogart factory to find out who’s putting their employees on ice and sabotaging the business. It’s going to be hard for Stephanie to keep her hands off all that 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 is 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. Stephanie Plum has a lot on her plate, but for a girl who claims to have “virtually no marketable skills,” these are the kinds of sweet assignments she does best.

  • Disappointing

    By Chambersburg neighbor
    The Stephanie Plum series is all about characters and setting. Plot, not so much. So when a character changes significantly, it significantly impacts the series - negatively. Ranger is changed; he has become chatty and, in doing so, has lost the loner mystique of the former special forces soldier. The author's voice has changed as well, as if an unnamed ghostwriter has taken over. I think I'm done with this series.
  • This plum was a prune

    By Justaskbernice
    The title wasn't the snappy combo that we expect for a by the numbers book. Personally, I prefer 23 Skidoo. Maybe if is just me but these books are almost becoming a boilerplate. Stephanie/danger/Ranger/crazy lust / Morelli/comfortable lust/Lulu high jinx/crazy family/car kaput/funeral viewing/donuts/bacon. I think that covers it. If you love the series you'll read it. But Janet, seriously, pick up the pace.
  • Um......really?

    By Xcvxvxbdbbd
    Wow, what can I say other than what a disappointment. I have read the whole series and this book was horrible! I was bored with the same regurgitated plot and anti-climate ending. The laughs were few and far between and I feel as though Janet is trying to squeeze out far too many books in this series. If you read the first ten books, then save your time and money on this one.


  • There are so many racist tropes in this, I could spit.

    By MichJae
    Janet seems to have leaned into her hatred of Lula, and escalated her racist commentary about the character. She describes Black criminals in her book in such a demeaning, hateful way, but not the White criminals. I can’t believe I wasted money on this. I’d give it 0 stars if I could.
  • Another Winner!!!

    By Chrisf75067
    Once again , I loved it!! Many LOL moments!! Some people complain that they are the “same ole thing”!! That is what I like! That is why I have continued to read each book. Knowing it will be just another fun adventure with Stephanie and the gang! Keep them coming!!!!! Thanks, Chris 😀
  • Love these books

    By babs-43
    I've read every Stephanie Plum book, some twice, and I laugh and enjoy every one.
  • Always fun

    By Froginchinna
    This book follows in the path of the others. It's a fun and easy ride to remove yourself from the outside world.

    By Confused ctr
    This has got to be one of the worst Plum books written. Same O Same O . Except she out right cheats on Morelli and reasons it out. Go figure. Personally, Ranger isn't worth it. I was totally disappointed in the book. Now we are made to wait almost a year for the next one. That's bull. And if it is as bad as this one. I'm done.
  • Turbo 23

    By Perky too
    I also have read the whole series and I actually thought this was one of the better ones. At least there are no giraffes wondering around Trenton. I know people complain about the sameness of her books these days, but that's what attracts a lot of readers. After a while you begin to feel like you know these characters . These books are not the "great American novel" but they are usually entertaining. This one was pretty entertaining!!
