The ninth dazzling and fast-paced adventure in the Stephanie Plum series from bestseller JANET EVANOVICH. For fans of SMOKIN' SEVENTEEN. Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week. An ordinary person would cave under the pressure. But hey, she's from Jersey. She may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but Stephanie's pretty damn good at turning situations her way...and she always gets her man. Her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, who mysteriously disappears just as his work visa is running out. And Stephanie is on the case to ensure the elusive Mr Singh doesn't make his disappearance more permanent. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give a whole new meaning to the word ' hunter'. Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.
Love all the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich. Highly recommend them. Especially if you like some humor mixed in.

I started this series in the middle, got hooked and came to Alibris for other books in the series. This series is fantastic. Actually almost stupid it is so fun. Evanovich really knows how to draw your interest and keep you laughing. So far I have read all thirteen books and can't wait for the next one in June. Every book sends you to the next and you can't wait to see what will happen next.

Nine is not enough
Each of Janet Evanovich's series of novels about Stephanie Plum leaves me craving to read the next! They are well written and laugh out loud funny. The books are just hard to put down...I NEED to find out what happens next to Stephanie and the entire cast of characters.
Publishers Weekly, 2003-06-23 "My same is Stephanie Plum and I was born and raised in the Chambersburg section of Trenton, where the top male activities are scarfing pastries and pork rinds and growing ass hair." Within pages of this elegant introduction to the latest installment in Evanovich's bestselling numbered series, the less-than-stellar bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has managed to haul in a fat, naked and, yes, furry "skip" who has greased himself up with Vaseline to literally give her the slip. In the midst of taking him to the police station, however, Plum drops everything to help her beloved Grandma Mazur, who calls to say that Stephanie's mom locked herself in the bathroom to escape the craziness of the Plum family. Finally, Plum checks in at the office, where her employer and cousin, the bailbondsman Vinnie, assigns her back-up duty on the thorny case of a missing Indian man, Samuel Singh. Vinnie previously wrote a bond ensuring that Singh would leave the country when his visa expired, so the latter's disappearance drives Vinnie to call in the devastatingly attractive Ranger, his star enforcer, and assign Stephanie to help him. As fans know, the mysterious Ranger has long competed with the equally sexy Morelli to be the object of Plum's desire, so his presence-just as Plum has temporarily moved in with Morelli-keeps the sexual tension high. An awkward plot that takes Plum to Vegas is the weakest course in this meal. Yet Evanovich's many fans will be more than happy with their latest serving of Stephanie Plum-that cute, bumbling, irresistibly average Jersey girl-who just happens to have more laughs, more sizzling sexual tension, and more nonstop, zany adventure than anybody else around.

Publishers Weekly, 2003-10-06 Narrator King somehow makes the crazy, comic antics of Evanovich's irresistible bond agent, Stephanie Plum, seem almost rational in this fine audio adaptation. The story opens with the outrageous apprehension of a nude, Vaseline-coated fugitive by Stephanie and her plus-sized, ex-hooker, "sometimes partner" Lula. Soon after, Stephanie sets off on the trail of Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant who apparently fled a Visa bond and his fianc?e. With plenty of prior experience narrating Evanovich titles (Hard Eight, etc.), King has no trouble highlighting the eccentricities of the author's invariably quirky cast of characters, as well as the ongoing romantic triangle between Stephanie, her sexy partner Ranger and Joe, a Trenton cop with whom she shares a "long, strange history." Evanovich's quick-witted, sarcastic and often raunchy dialogue takes the edge off the story's suspense, but King's chameleon voice and ease with accents make this a lively listening experience.
