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?

This program is produced for mature audiences.

    " Stephanie was particularly bumbling in this one but lots of laughs, which is good because Evanivich knows how to scare you to death in the endings of these books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ♥ Ashleigh ♥ contrary to popular belief im not actually mad! | 2/9/2014

    " loved the end, val and stephanie were totally awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LuAnn Frimmel | 2/4/2014

    " This is the book where Stephanie and Ranger finally get together. After all of the build up, I thought Ranger deserved a little more time than a page and a half. Their relationship is one of the major plot lines driving this series, yet in many of the books Ranger does not figure prominently. Stephanie always ends up with Morelli. But you really have to love that too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/29/2014

    " Another romp with Plum. Typically entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista Ashe | 1/24/2014

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Ashley | 1/24/2014

    " Aww geez, Stephen did Ranger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison Forde | 1/22/2014

    " Eight books in and I'm still enjoying this series. It's a guilty pleasure, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caro | 1/22/2014

    " Crazy and Dangerous. I loved this one too. The relations are still confused and hot. I liked the characters. This one seemed a little more serious than the others, due to no new kooky characters, although the bad guy took the 'medal' for craziness. I liked the chain and the 'clown' lawyer. The dryer was hilarious. He was goofy in a good way. I liked the door sensors and the subsequent solitary shoot-out. I would've felt better afterwards too. The chains and handcuffs were great too. I laughed and held my breath, and felt the many 'parakeet' moments. The cars are finally back on track, had to catch up for the slow month before. Another great kooky caper and still ready for more. The family rescues were unexpected and perfect. Go Momma! Enjoy! "

    " A quick, easy read that never disappoints. Love Stephanie! "

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

    " Stephanie is back! The plot was interesting...there was a new annoying character named Kloughn, but he wasn't SUPER annoying and luckily his presence was pretty scaled back. Limited Morelli, lots of Ranger. This makes me hungry for book 9. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Siera | 12/14/2013

    " Read my other reviews ... it's basically the same. I'm glad that her and Joe finally got back together ... they still are in need of editing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa Ricks | 12/10/2013

    " I really liked this one! The interactions between Stephanie and her guys are more interesting and the way they team up to take care of her really says a lot about them. I also actually laughed out loud several times. One of my favorites in the series so far! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judithe | 11/17/2013

    " I'm reading out of order, which is REALLY weird...but Stephanie Plum is growing on me! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Dannhardt | 11/11/2013

    " Another Evanovich hit! Poor Stephanie and her luck with cars... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mersina | 10/27/2013

    " This one is my fav so far!! Might be because Stephanie finally did the dirty with Ranger :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 colleen | 10/18/2013

    " so much fun. laugh out loud. scary villain. and lots of ranger. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 8/7/2013

    " I liked this one the least. Steph screwing Ranger really sickened me especially since she claims to love Morelli. The rabbit and bear thing was also pretty stupid. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Relyn | 7/6/2013

    " I can't believe I am admitting to reading these books. It's like admitting to enjoying potty humor. In fact, that's exactly what it is. These books are fully of juvenile potty humor and similar. Can't help it though. They are funny. And, I do love a book that makes me laugh out loud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 4/1/2013

    " Listened to audio book version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kmeacott | 3/14/2013

    " These books (the entire series) are a very quick read, hilarious, enjoyable and actually made me laugh out loud while reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 3/10/2013

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 1/13/2013

    " Hard Eight was one of the funniest Stephanie Plum novels I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby Fick | 10/15/2012

    " Think this was my fave of the series so far - "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy | 9/4/2012

    " Another entertaining chapter in the life of Stephanie Plum. The mystery/ adventure side of these books are just so so. However, the characters you meet and the entertainment factor (funny) makes up the difference. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 4/23/2012

    " Funny and engaging comedy! Interesting (relateable but completely unrealistic) characters, bizarre and entertaining plot line. Certainly following a formula, but it works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Walker | 3/12/2012

    " A comic delight with laughs on every page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Groovy Deb♥ | 10/29/2011

    " I loved it! Very cool book with fun and mystery :) One drawback which to me is feeling monotonous is yet ANOTHER author using God's name in vein as a curse word. Seriously it adds nothing to the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dora McFadden | 9/16/2011

    " I enjoyed these series..they did get a bit redundant. The characters were fun, I heard they are making a movie out of the series. Not surprised. When I read the books I thought it could make a good TV series..this was before the explosion of Dexter and TruBlood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sunshine | 8/11/2011

    " Great writing. Still fun and interesting. She is good with the twists and turns :) "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 4/17/2011

    " 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. "
