Book Description


See all titles by Janet Evanovich.

"The menace is more personal for Trenton's favorite bounty hunter and the energy more manic in this latest outing than in last year's Seven Up. As a favor to her mother's next-door neighbor, Mabel Markowitz, Stephanie agrees to check up on the lady's granddaughter, Evelyn Soder, who has suddenly taken off with her little girl, Annie, leaving behind a child custody bond against Mabel's house. The son-in-law is a bad guy who lost his bar to Eddie Abruzzi, a very nasty character who owns Evelyn's building.

Soon someone in a bunny suit is trailing Stephanie, her car is blown up, her apartment infiltrated and a dead body appears on her couch. She calls in her associate, Ranger, the gorgeous and mysterious Cuban bond agent, while her sometime boyfriend, Morelli the cop, also gets on the case - a real doozy for which she's not getting paid.

On the home front, ever-raunchy Grandma Mazur is eager to assist. Sister Valerie and kids have moved back in as well, so there's nowhere but the couch for Stephanie and one bathroom for all. Valerie is inexplicably attracted to Evelyn's goofy lawyer, who's been tagging along with Stephanie and the ever-outrageous file clerk and ex-hooker Lula, further complicating this twisted case.

5 of 5 Hard Eight / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
This is one of the zaniest books in the Stephanie Plum series. As a favor to her Mom's next-door-neighbor, Mabel Markowitz, Stephanie agrees to find the lady's granddaughter, Evelyn Soder,  who has disappeared with her daughter Annie. This left a child custody bond against Mabel's house. The no-good son-in-law lost his bar to Eddie Abruzzi who just happens to own Evelyn's building. Abruzzi is a nasty character and soon someone in a bunny suit is blows up Steph's car. In addition, a dead body is planted in Steph's apartment. Steph asks for Ranger's help and goes to stay with her parents already overflowing house, requiring her to sleep on the couch. Valerie is attracted to Evelyn's lawyer. Steph is working pro bono on this case. One of the craziest books in the series. A fantastic read.  You will laugh out loud.
