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?

    " 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.
