In this book we find Lizzy enjoying a day off from work when Diesel appears in her house set to sweep her off onto their last adventure. He whisks her away to a murder scene where Diesel's pet money Carl finds the first clue setting them chase to track down the Luxuria stone (lust) before Wulf can get his hands on the stone. To find the stone they must unravel a set of magically set clues that can only be deciphered by someone one with a certain purity. The problem is that neither Diesel nor Lizzy have what it takes to decipher the clues. They are forced to enlist the help of Lizzy's co-worker Glo, who think she has wizard tendencies, since she can decipher the clues. Involving Glo makes matters more complicated with her spell casting that usually doesn't work out the way they are intended. If dealing with Glo's spell-casting and trying to stay ahead of Wulf and Hatchet wasn't enough now they have the mysterious Anarchy, another person with unmentionable powers, vying for the stone.
Anyone that enjoys mystery, romance, fiction or just a good humorous book will enjoy reading Wicked Business. You will find that once you pick up the book you will have a hard time putting it back down. The action is fast paced and the situations will keep you laughing. The only problem you may have with the book is that is over way too soon and leaving you wanting more.
Once again with this book Ms. Evanivich shows why her style of mixing mystery, romance, humor and eating has kept her at the top of the bestseller list.
Once the story actually unfolded it was entertaining enough, and one of the features I always like about Janet Evanovich is when there is a portion that can make me chuckle out loud. I was not disappointed on this point, in more than one location. I plan on keeping this and relistening to both the first book and this one, before donating them to my workplace library for others to enjoy. The true question would be whether I would put out the cash to purchase another in the sequel? I'm not really too sure of that. I truly enjoy Diesel but the stories need to have more substance to them to succeed.
This book in all of this glory is a good one and I don't really want to spoil anything on it since they are so good. Janet Evanovich is a good author and I love her books. I hope that everyone that gets to read this book and likes it as well. I love this book and I give it a five star as well.

Best part was the pictures at the end. I loved that! Happy to report that the Sphinx was described well enough that I pictured it almost perfect. I suppose this is what frustrates me about Janet's last five or six novels. She has the ability to really write good, readable material. And id love to read it. But these are all reading exactly the same.
But I just can't get excited about this particular group. I might even go so far as to say they are sort of stupid. I expected better things of Evanovich than to just get into the latest style by bringing in this type of silly fantasy.
I did not finish the book, which is very unusual for me.
