You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again—and you live in New Jersey. What do you do?

If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter—you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad … and not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man who took Stephanie’s virginity at age 16 and then wrote the details on a bathroom wall. With pride and rent money on the line, Plum plunges headlong into her first case, one that pits her against ruthless adversaries—people who’d rather kill than lose.

In Stephanie Plum, Evanovich has created a resourceful and humorous character who stands apart from the pack of gritty female detectives.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Zubarik | 1/21/2014

    " For my first Evanovich book, it was a pretty easy read and kept my attention. I thought a few of the things were a bit far fetched that happened throughout the book, but I think I will delve into the rest of the Stephanie Plum series sooner than later. Stories are stories for a reason right? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meg | 11/29/2013

    " The mystery was terrible, the characters were terrible, the writing was terrible. I can honestly say that I cared not at all what happened to anyone at the end of this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alaura | 11/12/2013

    " A juvenile plot with too many F words to actually be a juvenile novel. I actually liked the movie better, and I didn't like the movie too much. "

    " This was a great break from the serious books I was reading through prior to this one. I actually enjoyed this book - she's outrageous and trashy, and half the things she was doing just seemed unbelievable, but I was still happy enough to go along for the ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K. Kelly O'Connor | 10/30/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carly222 | 12/25/2011

    " I read this series a few years back but watched the movie with my sister just the other night and made me want to re-read them all. I forgot how much I loved them! Morelli and Ranger are hotties and Stephanie is hilarious. And I heart Grandma Mazur for her peculiarity. Can't wait to read the rest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philippa | 9/6/2011

    " This is fairly formulaic as modern crime fiction with feisty female protagonists goes, but it's a formula that works. Fast-paced, snappy writing, good plotting, satisfying resolution. Easy to polish off in the summer holidays. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 8/29/2011

    " Easy read with some humor. Only when you are mood for a light read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Schindel | 8/10/2011

    " I love this series. It's truly laugh out loud funny. Even though the books follow a predictable pattern (after you've read a few), Janet still finds a way to add twists and humor that make them all worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 6/23/2011

    " Love these books. They make me laugh out loud. The characters are priceless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 6/22/2011

    " Light and funny - a very quick read. Stephanie Plum is a bumbling newbie bounty hunter with some unbelievable, but interesting, escapades. This book had me laughing from the first page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 6/21/2011

    " Stephanie Plum is endearing, but rough around the edges. This book is a fast read. My friends tell me the series is addictive and very funny so I am going to try some more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 6/19/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 6/18/2011

    " Don't read this unless you really like to laugh out loud, prefer non-stereo typical characters, and like a bit of unpredictability. It's a hoot. I love the Stephanie Plum series and so glad there seems to be no end to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ray | 6/17/2011

    " Funny, witty prose; boring, crappy plot. "
