Das Nonkussultra gegen schlechte Laune! Bevor Stephanie auch nur einen Fuß aus dem Flieger von Hawaii nach New Jersey setzen kann, steht sie schon wieder knietief im Morast. Nicht nur, dass sich der erhoffte Traum- zum Albtraumurlaub entwickelt hat, auf dem Heimflug musste sie auch noch stundenlang neben einem äußerst streng riechenden Sitznachbarn ausharren. Der ist mittlerweile tot. Ermordet. Die Leiche steckte in einer Mülltonne, und Stephanie steckt in der Klemme. Denn plötzlich sind das FBI sowie eine Menge zwielichtiger Gestalten hinter einem verschwundenen Foto her, das das Opfer bei sich trug. Und es gibt nur eine, die weiß, wo das Bild ist: Stephanie Plum. Unvermutet wird die Kopfgeldjägerin selbst zur Gejagten. Da können bloß noch Lula, Morelli und Ranger helfen – und natürlich Hamster Rex.

Based in part on her own family's journey, Ellen Van Vechten explains the science of addiction, the theory of treatment, and the twelve-step model of recovery, providing sensible information and tips for reasoned action in support of a loved one while fostering personal growth and recovery. Powerlessness over another's addiction has a caustic effect on the family. Too often parents and partners equate "letting go" with "giving up." While acceptance of a lack of control is essential to coping with the disease within the family system, there is nothing passive about supporting a partner or child in their journey to recovery. This concept is the foundation of Van Vechten's original approach to empower individuals with knowledge, which when coupled with acceptance allows any family dealing with active addiction to make thoughtful and reasoned decisions to facilitate the recovery of both their loved ones and themselves.
