Stephanie Plum Mystery
Stephanie Plum, the bombshell bounty hunter of Trenton, New Jersey, thinks she already has problems. Her relationship with gorgeous cop Joe Morelli is so complicated it's now over. Plus, she's called in her attractive, if terrifying, mentor and tormentor Ranger once too often to deal with difficult fugitives, and Ranger is ready to collect his reward.
But Stephanie can always count on her family to add to her troubles. Though her mother hates Stephanie's job - no one else's daughter shoots people for a living - and Grandma Mazur wants to ride shotgun on every pickup, when the pair gang up to insist she finds their neighbour's missing granddaughter Evelyn and her child Annie, Stephanie can't refuse. Mabel Markowitz signed a custody bond guaranteeing Annie would stay in Trenton after her parents' acrimonious divorce. Now Evelyn and Annie have disappeared, Mabel will lose her house to True Blue Bail Bonds Agency.
If following Evelyn's and Annie's trail was going to be simple, however, Stephanie's competitors would have found them days ago. She's perturbed to find a Ranger-trained babe on the case for True Blue Bonds, and petrified when property lord and war game fanatic Eddie Abruzzi expresses his own sinister interest in tracking Evelyn down. Where have they gone? What does Abruzzi really want from them? And why is a giant rabbit stalking Steph?
Witty, fresh and full of surprises, Hard Eight is Janet Evanovich's most explosive thriller yet - and Stephanie's funniest misadventure. The world of Plum has never been wilder.
