Janet Evanovich is one of the world's biggest-selling authors. Her last book in the Stephanie Plum series, Smokin' Seventeen, reached No 1 on the New York Times hardcover beseller fiction list, as did the previous eleven books
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is used to danger and adventure; they follow her at every turn. But when international murder hits dangerously close to home, this could be more explosive than exciting...Once Stephanie steps on the plane from Hawaii to Newark, she hopes to put her hellish holiday behind her. But when her seatmate mysteriously disappears during the stopover in LA - to be found later in a garbage can - things are only going to get worse. Only one other person has seen the missing photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying - and it just so happens to be Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't want to end up in a garbage can...More to the point, she still has to deal with the fallout from Hawaii. Both the men in her life refuse to talk about it and all Stephanie will say is...It's complicated.
'Evanovich's series of New Jersey comedy thrillers are among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction...' — GQ Magazine 'Packed with her familiar wicked ear for dialogue...Plum is not just a smart private eye but a heroine with a sense of humour' — Daily Mail 'The mere fact that Evanovich has stuck at this formula for 18 books is extraordinary. All feature the hair-brained adventures of the inept but charming NY bounty hunter Stephanie Plum; a New Jersey gal with lots of pluck' — Manly Daily
