A “saintly” old candy-store owner is on the lam, and bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum—the brassy babe in the powder blue Buick—is on the case. As the body count rises, Stephanie finds herself dealing with dead drug dealers and slippery fugitives on the chase of her life. With the help of eccentric friends and family, including former hooker turned file clerk and wannabe bounty hunter Lula, Steph must see to it that this case doesn’t end up being her last.

Cursed with a disastrous new hair color and an increasing sense that it’s really time to get a new job, Stephanie spirals and tumbles through Three to Get Deadly with all the wisecracks and pace her fans have come to expect.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Despite her new clownish orange hair job, Stephanie muddles through another case full of snappy one-liners as well as corpses. By turns buttressed and hobbled by her charmingly clueless family and various cohorts, the redoubtable Stephanie is a character crying out for a screen debut.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Stephanie Plum stands apart from the female series characters who are so popular in crime fiction. She’s funnier, tougher, politically incorrect, and just loves her job to death. This may be the break-out entry in an already critically acclaimed series. Be prepared for significant demand.” 

    Booklist

  • “More fast and funny action from a winning writer.”

    Library Journal

  • “Stephanie’s third case dispenses almost entirely with mystery and detection in favor of a comedy/variety format. But in going repeatedly for the funny bone, Evanovich, who clearly agrees with her heroine that ‘adaptation is one of the great advantages to being born and bred in Jersey,’ is obviously dealing from strength.”

    " Great character and interesting setting. Rated "R." she is definitely a good writer, but I won't read too many more. "

    " I can't help it. These books are pure escapist smutty enjoyment. But anything I couldn't put down and ran right out to get the next one I had to give at least four stars. Simple and fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mem | 1/20/2014

    " The humor is such a large part of the stories. I like Lori Petty's reading, but the newer audio books are read by Lorelei King. I hope that each of the three books would have their own unabridged version out at some time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Valero | 1/19/2014

    " I read all these within 6 months. Before, it took me 6 months just to read one book. Maybe it's because I don't have a baby attached to my leg all the time, or maybe they're all easy reads. Regardless, I would read them all again, and I never read books twice, but I would read these again. "
