Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has a problem: 7-year-old Annie Soder and her mother, Evelyn, have disappeared. Evelyn's estranged husband, Steven, is not happy. He and Evelyn signed a child custody bond, and Steven wants the bond money to search for Annie. The money was secured by a mortgage on Evelyn's grandmother's house, and the True Blue Bonds Agency wants to take possession of it.

Finding a kidnapped child is not Stephanie's thing. But Evelyn's grandmother lives next door to Stephanie's parents, and they're not about to see their neighbor lose her house because of the abduction.

Stephanie follows Annie and Evelyn's trail - and finds a lot more than she bargained for. Steven is somehow linked with the very scary Eddie Abruzzi. Trenton cop and on-again, off-again fiancé Joe Morelli, and Stephanie's mentor, Ranger, enter the scene, and because Stephanie needs Ranger's expertise, she accepts his help - even though it might mean paying some past debts.

Stephanie, Ranger, Lula, and Evelyn's lawyer/laundromat manager set out to find Annie. The search becomes a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds' agent, and the Abruzzi crew. And did we mention there's a killer rabbit on the loose?

    " Fell in love with Ranger in this one!! <3 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marsha | 2/15/2014

    " Plum is getting a little old! Time to move on "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Polson | 2/12/2014

    " Good, but not as good as seven. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer S | 2/7/2014

    " Stephanie Plum is up to it again. Chasing FTA, stalked by someone wanting to kill her(Abruzzi), car getting blown up, torn between Morelli and Ranger. She sleeps with Ranger though finally! Which of course only leads to knowing the unknown and what she's missing. In the end she wraps everything up nicely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/3/2014

    " This one made me laugh out loud a few times... but then again, this whole series has done that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisarenee | 1/31/2014

    " Was so glad to finally get on with the series. The bunny cracked me up with not being able to be understood. The minute Stephanie said she liked rabbits I knew there would be trouble. Dissapointed with the Ranger turn of events. I was hoping there'd be more answers to his life. Still loving the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shareese | 1/30/2014

    " This is the 11th book in this series that I've read. I'm sort of tired of Stephanie Plum by this point. There's not enough difference in this book from the others to make it interesting. What's annoying about this series that essentially the same set of facts about each character are mentioned over and over. By book 11 you know all the basic facts about everyone, but what's new. Is that all that these people are? With 18 books, you'd think we'd know a lot more about these characters, their motivations, fears, how they think, who are the important people in their lives, their back story. Maybe I expect too much. This isn't supposed to be a novel to enlighten but rather mindless entertainment. If I'm to accept that, then Ms. Evanovich has done her job. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellie Palacios | 1/20/2014

    " I love the Stephanie Plum Novels.They are funny and always has twist and turns to keep you reading on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ally | 1/13/2014

    " plot was a bit boring, but love the Ranger scenes! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kamini | 1/11/2014

    " The perfect fluff and easy read was perfect for after 3 years of graduate school! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 12/30/2013

    " Fast fun and sexy is this continuation of the Stephanie Plum series. A few FTA's mixed in with a missing mother and child create a lot of fear for Stephanie and few dead bodies and blown up cars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian Alvarez | 12/25/2013

    " This is my favorite in the series so far. It's about time Ranger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Truitti | 12/15/2013

    " I am borrowing some paperbacks from friends and downloading the ebook when the friend is missing one from the series. Love this series. It still makes me laugh. Would love to have a Ranger or Morelli in my life. Hum, second thought, maybe not. LOL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill M. | 12/14/2013

    " Good quick one...fun with Ranger. But some rather gross parts with military gamer too...boo! Looking forward to more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy | 12/8/2013

    " Another fun Steph Plum book:) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Macomber | 8/10/2013

    " This book didn't contain as many laugh-out-loud moments as the others and some of the storylines weren't very realistic (especially those involving Stephanie's sister). It was just ok. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Ashley | 6/19/2013

    " Aww geez, Stephen did Ranger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Noel | 3/14/2013

    " Still hooked! I find myself laughing out loud a LOT while reading these books. Love them!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 1/30/2013

    " Laugh out loud funny. Hadn't read a Stephanie Plum book in a while (got a little bored with them before...)but going back to one made me remember that they are FUNNY! A very quick enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Tolleson | 11/30/2012

    " Despite the provocative title, this is merely the eighth entry in the Stephanie Plum series. In my opinion, it's better than number 7. This book is so breezy and exciting that it practically reads itself. It goes down easy, like a Tastycake. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mariah Busch | 9/23/2012

    " Team Morelli all the way. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CJ | 8/17/2012

    " Lots of Ranger, very little of Morelli. Please Stephanie, enough with the waffling, pick one and let it all ride. A couple of new characters in this one - as always they're brilliantly sketched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 7/4/2012

    " A wiley FTA, a threat Ranger collecting on a debt, and a menacing mystery man in a rabbit suit. Its life as Stephanie Plum knows it...and its hilariously funny at every turn! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amberlori | 12/3/2011

    " Gotta love feisty Stephanie Plum. All the books are just pure fluffy fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Simeonberesford | 11/4/2011

    " Suprisingly good, definately better than To The Nines. not as darkas a spoiler free summary might make you think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Bruchman | 5/25/2011

    " This was the best one yet! I was in tears from laughing so hard. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 5/23/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/12/2011

    " Another zany adventure with a few laughs concerning costumed characters! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 5/12/2011

    " Wow....Ranger and Steph consummated their relationship.....hot, but I'm a Team Morelli girl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 5/8/2011

    " Funny. and like the others. really good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Miranda | 5/8/2011

    " So.. Steph finally gets it going with Ranger.. Yummy. Too bad she got it going with Morelli too.

    Another awesome book, I think Valerie is going to be ridiculously surprising in the next books ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 5/4/2011

    " Not as good as some of the others - I felt like this one didn't focus enough on the crime...I did like the bunny suit and all it entailed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 4/27/2011

    " this book is one of my favorite plum series. very funny "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 4/27/2011

    " This funny "numbers" series follows Stephanie Plum, Pacifist bountyhunter, and her dilemmas, trials and relationships. Each book is light and fluffy, not meant for seriousness, but not meant for the overly serious either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esperanza | 4/18/2011

    " Fun, entertaining read. A few laugh out loud moments. "

    " Read review of "One for the Money". They're all basically the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steph | 4/5/2011

    " LOVED it, so witty and upbeat, even though it's about a girl learning to be a bounty hunter in NJ. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tatrd | 4/2/2011

    " Good but very abrupt ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 3/31/2011

    " what a fun book. I laughed out loud more than once :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 3/30/2011

    " Stephanie Plum is back on the case. Hunting down the bad guys and being hunted by them. But this time it hits too close to home with a dead people in her wake and a costumed bunny making her life a living hell this one may be too much for just Stephanie to handle. "
