As readers of Janet Evanovich's two previous books about funny, feisty, family-tied bounty hunter Stephanie Plum already know, she operates in "the burg"--a "comfy residential chunk of Trenton, New Jersey, where houses and minds are proud to be narrow and hearts are generously wide open." On this turf, Plum fights for justice and fashion points--this time in pursuit of a beloved neighborhood candystore owner who seems to be moonlighting as an anti-drug vigilante. Evanovich now lives in New Hampshire, but authentic affection for Trenton energizes her prose. Plums in paperback include One for the Money and Hardcover edition.
a laugh out loud mystery, September 1, 2003 Reviewer: truthandjustice from USA This was a fun mystery. I found myself laughing out loud several times as I read the book. Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter and not one of the agency's top agents. She gets the mediocre assignments, only they don't always end up being mediocre to hunt down. She is assigned to hunt down Uncle Mo, the local ice-cream store owner, much beloved by the neighborhood. The people are mad because she is chasing him down and she says she's just doing her job. Through various antics that keep us all entertained, she does her job. A book that leaves you grinning when you finish just thinking about it. I would recommend it whole heartedly.
