When her latest skip leads her to a stolen truck with a dead frozen mansicle inside, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum isn't sure she'll ever pick up a Bogart Bar on a hot day ever again. These things tend to scar you. Fortunately her skips have never the brightest and after all a girl has a hamster to feed. Stephanie almost always gets her man.
Ranger (all things dark, mysterious and irresistible) is employed to examine the security on the Bogart ice cream factory which seems rather lax if you can manage to kill a man, roll him in chocolate and nuts and then get him onto a delivery truck unseen. As a favour to her (sometimes!) love interest, Stephanie takes a small breather from working for her cousin Vinnie and joins the team of processing drones churning out the sweet sensations at Bogarts. It only takes a conversation on the first day of her new job for Stephanie to realize that some very disgruntled employees spend their days in this faux sweet world and that Bogarts is not the only ice cream factory in town. A long running feud between two Trenton ice cream families has escalated to the point of sabotage and murder.
