Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's The Heist.

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum’s life is set to blow sky high when international murder hits dangerously close to home, in this dynamite novel by Janet Evanovich.
 
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
 
Only one other person has seen the missing photo—Stephanie Plum. Now she’s the target, and she doesn’t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she’ll need to watch her back.
 
Over at the bail bonds agency things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie’s temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie’s wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie’s apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii?
 
Morelli, Trenton’s hottest cop, isn’t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn’t talking about Hawaii.  And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It’s complicated.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 12, 2012 – Life is never dull for Stephanie Plum, but now she's got an assassin and the FBI on her tail in Evanovich's less than stellar 18th entry in her main sequence featuring the New Jersey bounty hunter (after Smokin' Seventeen). Back in Trenton after a disastrous trip to Hawaii that involved both Ranger and Joe Morelli (don't ask, she won't talk), Stephanie tries to go about life in the bond business, accompanied as always by her sidekick, Lula. But Hawaii won't stay buried, especially when news that her seatmate turned up murdered and his killers are convinced that Stephanie now has a photograph he was carrying. With Stephanie's luck, the photograph did end up in her luggage, but she threw it away, thinking it was junk. But try telling that to the FBI and the shady men masquerading agents or the hit man who goes by Razzle Dazzle and wants to kill her and take the photograph, not necessarily in that order. There are still bond jumpers to catch like Buggy, who repeatedly steals Stephanie's car and the perpetual Morelli versus Ranger question to answer. In the end, there's little to distinguish this installment from its recent predecessors.

Customer Reviews

what is happening to Evanovich?

Seventeen was a major disappointment.... I thought since Eighteen came out so soon after Seventeen it was going to be better. Unfortunately Evanovich hasn't developed these characters... I hate to say it.... Evanovich either needs to get back to writting the Plum series by herself or she needs to end this series... I'm getting tired of rushing out excited to read the next novel and be so incredibly disappointed. If you can get it from the library do it.... don't waste your money!!! Maybe with low sales Evanovich will get the hint and get back in touch with Stephanie...

Disappointing

Her books used to be twice this long, and she's still getting just as much for these books. Her daughter is now writing the stories and they're just not as good. Don't waste your money.

Ugh

Nothing new, after 18 books you'd think something would change. Stories are different but characters don't go anywhere. Been loyal since first book, and now just sick of it. Cookie cutter book.
