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).
When I was twelve years old I accidentally substituted
salt for sugar in a cake recipe. I baked the cake, iced the
cake, and served it up. It looked like a cake, but as soon as
you cut into it and took a taste, you knew something else
was going on. People are like that too. Sometimes you just
cant tell whats on the inside from looking at the outside.
Sometimes people are a big surprise, just like the salt cake.
Sometimes the surprise turns out to be good. And sometimes
the surprise turns out to be bad. And sometimes the
surprise is just friggin confusing.
Joe Morelli is one of those good surprises. Hes two years older than I am, and for most of my school years, spending time with Morelli was like a visit to the dark side, alluring and frightening. Hes a Trenton cop now, and hes my off-again, on-again boyfriend. He used to be the hair-raising part of my life, but my life has had a lot of changes, and now hes the normal...
