Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head - literally. Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli. Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers. Stir the pot: Lula recruits bounty hunter Stephanie Plum to help her find the killers and collect the moolah. Add a secret ingredient: Stephanie's Grandma Mazur. Enough said. Bring to a boil: Can Stephanie hunt down two killers, a traitor, five skips, keep her grandmother out of the sauce, solve Ranger's problems and not jump his bones? Warning: Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen is habanero hot. So good you'll want seconds.

"The latest Evanovich crime caper involves barbecue, decapitation, fire bombs, and fiery temptation for bail bondsman Stephanie Plum. Lorelei King delivers this light fiction with gusto, missing none of the humor, whether broad or subtle. Her version of Stephanie's smoldering boss, Ranger, would tempt the most virtuous Nancy Drew, while former hooker Lula sneaks into our hearts with her passion for donuts. Gramma Mazur's elderly voice comes across as squeaky and over-performed, but it's the only flaw in an otherwise entertaining production. King's comic timing suits the story, as does the laugh that's almost audible in her performance. Who else could make us giggle at a headless body in a morgue? R.L.L.
