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 audiobooks have been called "hot stuff" (The New York Times), and Evanovich herself "the master" (San Francisco Examiner).

Listener Opinions

    " And here we finally get some behind-the-scenes on Stephanie's men, Morelli and Ranger. This is a fun, growing-up chapter in the Plum series, as Ranger's daughter is kidnapped by a guy who wants to be him and he goes into track-down mode, taking everyone with him. There are some great, human moments for both Morelli and Ranger in this one, alongside the typical antics and crazed sex drives. Applause to Evanovich for keeping things fresh, interesting, and real twelve books into a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 2/8/2014

    " Tried & true, this book series is great for plane reading. Simple plot, zany characters, more junk food consumption than any character should have.... Reliable to the end! "

    " Wow. I have been reading the Plum series in a row, and I was kind of getting bored with it. I think it would have been better to split up the readings. However, there were some parts where I could not stop laughing. Grandma in the band outfit... I laughed so hard that I almost woke my daughters from their nap. What a great story, and a great ending. I am still not sure if I want Morelli or Ranger. "
