SEVEN UP by Janet Evanovich - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Janet Evanovich.
Semi-retired mob guy, Eddie DeChooch, is caught trafficking
contraband cigarettes through Trenton, New Jersey. When DeChooch fails
to show for a court appearance, bond enforcement agent Stephanie Plum
is assigned the task of finding him and dragging his decrepit ass back
to jail. Not such an easy job, it turns out, since DeChooch has learned
a lot of tricks over the years and isn't afraid to use his gun. He's
already shot Loretta Ricci and left her for worm food in his shed. He
wouldn't mind shooting Stephanie next.
Likeable losers (and
former high school classmates) Walter "MoonMan" Dunphy and Dougie "The
Dealer" Kruper have inadvertently become involved with DeChooch.
They've gotten sucked into an operation which is much more than simple
cigarette smuggling and holds risks far greater than anyone could have
When Dougie disappears, Steph goes into search mode. When Mooner
disappears, she calls in the heavy artillery and asks master bounty
hunter Ranger for help. Ranger's price for the job? One night with
Stephanie, dusk to dawn. Not information she'd want to share with her
some-time live in roommate, vice cop Joe Morelli.
A typical dilemma in the world of Plum.
And on the homefront, Stephanie's "perfect" sister Valerie has decided
to move back to Trenton, bringing her two kids from hell. Grandma Mazur
is asking questions about being a lesbian, and Bob, the bulimic dog, is
eating everything in sight - including the furniture.
Mud wrestling, motorcycles, fast cars, fast food, and fast men. It's Seven Up. Absolutely Janet Evanovich at her very best.
