Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is not having a good time. It is only a few days before Christmas and she hasn't sent out any cards, doesn't have a tree, and has yet to go shopping for gifts. She has had no luck in finding Sandy Claws, a senior citizen who failed to appear in court on a burglary charge. If all that wasn't bad enough, a man materializes in her kitchen who goes by the name of Piersel and says he was “sent” to her.

She can't lock him out of her apartment because he can magically unlock any door and the more time she spends with him, the more she believes there is something mystical about him. While Stephanie is running around town trying to find Sandy, Diesel is trying to find Ring who is Sandy's mortal enemy. Little does Stephanie know that Ring is somehow connected to her and if he's not stopped he will ruin the Plum Christmas.

Fans of the Stephanie Plum mystery series will definitely want to add this book to their collection. It makes a great gift, captures the holiday spirit, and is a fun reading experience. Diesel is a unique, one of a kind superhero who would be a perfect foil for Joe Morelli in future Plum mysteries.
