Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum debuted in Janet Evanovich’s award-winning One for the Money. Here, she’s back, packing a whole lot of attitude-not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, and a .38 Smith & Wesson. This time around, she’s on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso’s also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie’s investigations.
Aided by her tough bounty hunter pal, ranger, and her funeral-happy Grandma Mazur, Stephanie’s soon staggering knee-deep in corpses, trying to shake Morelli…and stirring up a very nasty enemy.
