Maxim Jakubowski's view on STEPHANIE PLUM...

A wisecracking New Jersey involuntary sleuth whose personal relationships and hapless investigations have a tendency to always go wrong with often hilarious results, Plum is a great blue collar character whose hard-nosed determination always somehow comes up trumps. FINGER LICKIN’ FIFTEEN is her latest caper and offers a barrel full of laughs and thrills as ever.

Takedown Twenty

Author: Janet Evanovich Format: Paperback Release Date: 17/06/2014

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore 'Uncle Sunny' Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it's up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in - not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because - just Stephanie's luck - this godfather is his actual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail. It's not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client's mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie's Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she's working side-by-side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior centre, trying to catch a killer on the loose - and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favour. With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

Evanovich fans will know what I mean when I say this is an ‘in between numbers’ book but still a Stephanie Plum.  Those not familiar with this crazy character are in for a treat with this one.  She is a bounty-hunter, here after a computer genius, associate to the dastardly villain Wulf, and she is accompanied by her normal wacky helpers and a load of monkeys.  It’s a rollercoaster ride, non-PC, full of larger than life characters and a plot not to be taken seriously.  All good clean fun.
