In this book, female-sleuth Stephanie Plum has been asked to find Moses Bedemier, AKA Uncle Mo. Uncle Mo is a fixture in the burg because he runs a popular candy store and has done so since 1958. And his store has never been closed, not even for one day.
Unfortunately Uncle Mo was busted by a rookie cop for speeding. Low and behold, the cop noticed Uncle Mo carrying a concealed weapon - a big no-no in Trenton, New Jersey. So bond was posted with the court but Uncle Mo failed to appear for his court date. Now Stephanie must try to find him.
This book is full of all the things we've come to expect from Stephanie: comic banter, attraction to Joe Morelli, help from Ranger, mayhem from sidekick Lula and crazy antics from Grandma Mazur. I liked this book and thought it was well written.

I have read 10 of Janet's books and plan to read the rest. Her characters are so much fun.

I am reading the entire Stephanie Plum series (1-14, so far) and am currently on #7. Three to Get Deadly is one of my favorites in the series (though they're all exceptional). The characters are richly developed, easy to relate to, and Janet Evanovich writes with so much humor and style that you just can't help getting drawn into this book---and this whole series. I already have 8, 9, and 10 on order and will certainlly go after the others! I've never had so much FUN reading and, so, if you're in the market for a truly great "ride' of a book, try this one - then go back and read the first 2. You'll be hooked just as I am but you'll be happy about it!
Publishers Weekly, 1996-11-25 Trenton, N.J., bounty hunter and former lingerie buyer Stephanie Plum (last seen in Two for the Dough) becomes persona non grata when she tracks down a neighborhood saint who has failed to show up for his court appearance. No one wants to help Stephanie, who works for her bail-bondsman cousin, Vinnie. While questioning admirers of the man nicknamed Uncle Mo, Stephanie is attacked and knocked out as she cases his candy store. She comes to next to the dead body of her attacker, who turns out to be a well-known drug dealer. Suddenly, she can't avoid stumbling across the bodies of dead drug dealers: one in a dumpster, one in a closet and four in the candy store basement. Stephanie suspects that mild-mannered Mo has become a vigilante and is cleaning up the streets in a one-man killing spree. But when she's repeatedly threatened by men wearing ski masks, she wonders if Mo has company and just might be in over his head. Despite her new clownish orange hair job, Stephanie muddles through another case full of snappy one-liners as well as corpses. By turns buttressed and hobbled by her charmingly clueless family and various cohorts (including streetwise co-worker Lulu, detective and heartthrob Morelli and professional bounty hunter Ranger), the redoubtable Stephanie is a character crying out for a screen debut.
