Reviews

In her sixth hilarious adventure (following High Five), Stephanie Plum, Jersey Girl and bounty hunter extraordinaire, is on the hunt for Ranger, her mysterious and sexy co-worker, who has been implicated in a murder. At the same time, she is tracked by thugs Habib and Mitchell, who threaten bodily harm if she doesn't find Ranger for them. Warns Habib, "We will spread your entrails across an entire parking space of my cousin Muhammad's 7-Eleven parking lot." If that isn't stressful enough, Stephanie must cope with the destruction of several cars (her Honda Civic is torched accidentally, and an irate bail jumper rams her borrowed Rollswagen, an ancient VW Bug with the hood of a Rolls Royce). Worst of all, Stephanie's eccentric Grandma Mazur decides to move in with her, putting a definite crimp in her affair with vice cop Joe Morelli. While the mystery is not particularly interesting, Evanovich's wisecracking, feisty heroine and the bizarre characters she meets will leave readers wanting more.

Sexy, smart-talking New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum returns for her sixth wildly amusing mystery (after 1999's High Five). Determination and contacts (she's grown up with half the cops and crooks in Trenton) compensate for Steph's poor aim with a gun, bad luck with cars and soft-hearted approach to her job (one bail jumper evades her four times). The police are after her mentor, the mysterious Ranger, wanted for killing drug and gun dealer Homer Ramos. Claiming he's innocent, Ranger persuades Steph to help him keep an eye on the Ramos clan. Steph teams up with her lover, vice cop Joe Morelli, then strikes out on her own when she realizes neither Joe nor Ranger will share information with her. When Mafia thugs get involved, she barely avoids kidnapping and torture. Meanwhile, there's her love life to deal with. Can she be physically attracted to Ranger and be in love with Joe? Evanovich spins all these threads, plus more, into a lunatic tapestry of nonstop action peopled by wacky characters straight out of a 1930s screwball comedy: Steph's Grandma Mazur, 80 years old, with the world view of a teenage punk; Mooner and Dougie, two lovable but zonked-out stolen goods dealers who have a closeout sale before going to jail; Habib and Mitchell, mobsters who follow Steph when Mitchell's wife doesn't need the car for kids' soccer games; and Steph's co-worker and pal, Lula, a gun-toting ex-prostitute always ready for an adventure. Evanovich just keeps getting better. (June) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
