Annotation

Whether it's monkey business, funny business, or getting down to business, Janet Evanovich's Lizzy and Diesel series proves that there's no business like Wicked Business.

Publisher Description

Lizzy Tucker's once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences. On their way they'll leave behind a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and general mayhem. Diesel's black sheep cousin, Gerwulf Grimoire, also wants the Stone. His motives are far from pure, and what he plans on doing with the treasure, no one knows ...but Lizzy Tucker fears she's in his crosshairs. Never far and always watching, Grimoire has a growing, vested interest in the cupcake-baker-turned-finder-of-lost-things.
As does another dangerous and dark opponent in the hunt—a devotee of lawlessness and chaos, known only as Anarchy. Treasures will be sought, and the power of lust will be unmistakable as Lizzy and Diesel attempt to stay ahead of Anarchy, Grimoire, and his medieval minion, Hatchet, in this ancient game of twisted riddles and high-stakes hide-and-seek.

Review
'Reads like a screen-play for the 1930s screwball comedy: fast, funny and furious... The rollicking plot...keeps the reader breathless' — Publishers Weekly 'Non-stop laughs with plenty of high jinks' — USA Today 'Janet Evanovich's madcap comic mystery is pure, classic farce' — New York Times Book Review 'Stephanie Plum in ass-kicking form...utterly delightful' — Cosmopolitan 'Pithy, witty and fast-paced' — The Sunday Times 'Packed with her familiar wicked ear for dialogue, the latest Evanovich will delight her legion of fans - and with good reason. Plum is not just a smart private eye but a heroine with a sense of humour' — Daily Mail
