Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, where bounty hunter Stephanie Plums life is about to implode in Janet Evanovichs 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 Evanovichs 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).
Evanovich wisely soft-pedals the mystery, which has never been her strong suit, and finds exactly the right tone of danger-laden farce .... spicing it with a million one-liners, aspiring bond enforcers and hapless criminals on the run.
The mixture of slapstick and gunplay....once again works its magic...countless over-the-top scenes, including one at a funeral parlor, will delight longtime fans.
Starred Review: Evanovich uses all of her considerable arsenal here: wisecracking humor ...the ending is downright terrifying, but the coda is soothing.
