NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The irrepressibly charming duo of Emerson Knight and Riley Moon returns in another gripping mystery by #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Buddhist monk Wayan Bagus lost his island of solitude and wants to get it back. The island was about two hundred miles northeast of Samoa. It had a mountain, beaches, a rain forest, and a volcano. And now it’s gone. Poof! Vanished without a trace.

Brilliant and boyishly charming Emerson Knight likes nothing better than solving an unsolvable, improbable mystery. And finding a missing island is better than Christmas morning in the Knight household. When clues lead to a dark and sinister secret that is being guarded by the National Park Service, Emerson will need to assemble a crack team for help. Since a crack team isn’t available, he enlists Riley Moon and his cousin Vernon. Riley Moon has a Harvard business degree and can shoot the eyes out of a grasshopper at fifty feet, but she can’t figure out how to escape the vortex of Emerson Knight’s odd life. Vernon has been Emerson’s loyal and enthusiastic partner in crime since childhood. He now lives in an RV behind Emerson’s house.

Together, this ragtag, mismatched trio will embark on a worldwide investigation that will expose a conspiracy one hundred years in the making.


  • Too Ridiculous

    By Voratious Reader
    The firs few Stephanie Plum books were fun, but this book is just too ridiculous
  • Fun

    As with all of Evanovich’s books it was a fun mindless read.
  • Ridiculous

    By Belmar65
    This book is terrible. It just rambles and it seems as if author is attempting to be more comedic than trying to develop a good plot.
  • Hard to Finish

    By catieh42
    As a Stephanie Plum fan, I’m familiar with the formula for a Janet Evanovich book. There’s not much variation — a cute and quirky heroine and a smart and sexy (yet always somehow dysfunctional) hero have a mutual attraction that is constantly referenced but never settled, and they encounter a bizarre villain. It usually produces an enjoyable, if shallow, story that you can read straight through. Not this time. It has taken me a month to get through this book. Why? Because I couldn’t make myself care. I couldn’t make myself pay attention. I couldn’t remember anything I’d already read when I picked it back up. Ugh. I just finished it and I feel like I’m leaving a dental exam... slight sense of accomplishment for not cancelling it, but mostly thankful it’s over.
  • Good book

    By La Gato13
    Good book + well written, did anyone catch the tribute they paid to Buffy the vampire musical? (Once more with feeling)It was "Showtime"and I'll let Buffy fans find the other one.

    Classic Evanovich!
  • Pretty lame

    By MarkWhiteLotus
    Interesting premise but ruined by cartoon characters and silly dialogue. Anyone who calls a magazine a clip shouldn't write action novels. Save your money.
  • Not The Best

    By Bmchass
    Story didn't flow very well - I usually finish her books in a day or two. I've been reading this one for a week and can't bring myself to finish it. Super disappointed.

    Not up to her usual standards. Way too out there.
