Stephanie Plum meets the Soprano's with a little magic thrown in to make it even more interesting. I loved it. I wish the ending was a little different, but I think that Resnick is just creating some tension to lead you into the next book. Not that the ending was bad. I just didn't get my way. =) I hope I can find book 1 somewhere. It's supposed to be reprinted soon. I loved the mystery and the the mobsters. I'll definitely stick with the series.
