Publisher Description

Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, where bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is about to implode in Janet Evanovich's wildest, hottest novel yet!

FIRST A STRANGER APPEARS

While chasing down the usual cast of miscreants and weirdos Stephanie discovers that a crazed woman is stalking her.

THEN THE STRANGER REVEALS HER SECRETS

The woman dresses in black, carries a 9mm Glock, and has a bad attitude and a mysterious connection to dark and dangerous Carlos Manoso …street name, Ranger.

NEXT, SOMEBODY DIES

The action turns deadly serious, and Stephanie goes from hunting skips to hunting a murderer.

SOON, THE CHASE IS ON

Ranger needs Stephanie for more reasons than he can say. And now, the two are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child, and stop a lunatic from raising the body count. When Stephanie Plum and Ranger get too close for comfort, vice cop Joe Morelli (her on-again, off-again boyfriend) steps in.

Will the ticking clock stop at the stroke of twelve, or will a stranger in the wind find a way to stop Stephanie Plum…forever? Filled with Janet Evanovich's trademark action, nonstop adventure, and sharp humor, Twelve Sharp shows why her novels have been called "hot stuff" (The New York Times), and Evanovich herself "the master" (San Francisco Examiner).

"Fast paced, yet easy to follow. Stephanie is forced to come to terms with her feelings for the two men in her life. It of course, changes practically nothing. But she is definitely growing as a character and it’s really fun to be along for the ride. She can be exasperating in one minute and lovable the next. At one point she seems to selfishly forget that Ranger’s daughter has been kidnapped and acts hesitant to help. But a page or two later, she’s ready to make the ultimate sacrifice.???"

— Plum Series Best Plot Yet (5 out of 5 stars)

Quotes

  • “Even though this is the twelfth outing in this remarkable series, Evanovich keeps the antics of Stephanie and her wacky cohorts hilarious, fast-paced, and vastly appealing.”

    — RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
  • “Stephanie Plum, Evanovich’s ditzy but delightful bounty hunter heroine, returns—this time to solve her own career crisis. Actress Lorelei King gives each character a distinct—and hilarious—voice.

    — People on Eleven on Top with praise for the narrator
  • Narrator King steps neatly into Stephanie's shoes, her agile voice conveying not only Stephanie's fear and frustration, but her plaintive, why-does-this-always-happen--to-me attitude. King also nails the manly, mysterious voice of gorgeous bounty hunter Ranger, Stephanie's sometime superhero… Her vocal stylings are generally as superb as Evanovich's zany characterizations.

    — Publishers Weekly on Ten Big Ones
  • Narrator Lorelei King does a fabulous job, as each character is assigned a distinctive voice, thus milking the humor for every drop.

    — The Boston Globe on To the Nines

    " I enjoyed reading Janet Evanovich for the first time and will probably read more of her writings in the future. The characters and story line was easy to read and believe. The only problem I had with the book which prevented me from giving it 5 stars was the language in some parts. It would have been just a readable without the constant use of nasty words. "

    " A good Stephanie Plum mystery in the style of the early books, where the mystery story was strong and characters fully developed, as Stephanie becomes embroiled in finding the person who is trying to steal Ranger's identity. Still with the Jersey schtick, but that's what makes these stories special. "
