TWELVE SHARP by Janet Evanovich - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Janet Evanovich.
The 12th installment of Janet Evanovich's wildly popular mystery
saga featuring the feisty and ever-endearing lingerie buyer turned
bounty hunter Stephanie Plum pits the New Jersey bond enforcement agent
against her most formidable foe yet: a completely deranged psycho
obsessed with one of Plum's two longtime love interests.
Twelve Sharp begins with Plum faced with the usual unsavory
duties of a bounty hunter -- tracking down a bevy of criminals who have
skipped out on their bail. Targets on her "skip" list include the aptly
named Melvin Pickle, a self-proclaimed pervert who is eerily
reminiscent of Pee-wee Herman; Mary Lee Truk, a menopausal housewife
who stabbed her husband where the sun don't shine; and Caroline
Scarzolli, a 72-year-old porn peddler.
But Plum's hunt for wayward
criminals is rudely interrupted by a crazed, gun-toting woman claiming
to be the wife of Ricardo "Ranger" Manoso, the tall, dark, and handsome
Cuban-American bounty hunter who, along with Trenton cop Joseph
Morelli, make up Plum's love triangle -- one as steamy as it is
After Ranger's alleged wife turns up dead and his
estranged daughter is kidnapped, Plum discovers that someone has stolen
Ranger's identity and is slowly and systematically taking over his
life. Next on the unhinged impostor's list is Ranger's hot girlfriend
- Plum herself.
In Twelve Sharp
Evanovich delivers the goods in a big way. Riotously entertaining and
laugh-out-loud funny, Evanovich's novel is, to steal a particularly
perverse line from its pages, "hours of pleasure guaranteed."
