Ten Big OnesShe's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. He mother's convinced she'll end up dead...or worse, without a man. She's Stephanie Plum and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thought it would sound good to put it that way...)
It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum...except that she becomes the target of a gang. And the target of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger out of town (and Stephanie on the outs with vice cop Morelli), she finds herself alone, with a decision to make: how to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as the Junkman. There's only one safe place, and it has Ranger's name all over it-if she can find it. And if the Junkman doesn't find her first. With Lula riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock in her most suspenseful novel yet. Ten Big Ones is page-turning entertainment and Janet Evanovich is the best there is. Eleven on TopStephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She’s been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Stephanie thinks it’s time for a change. So she quits. She wants something safe and normal. But the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can’t compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now…
Stephanie is stalked by a maniac returned from the grave for the sole purpose of putting her into a burial plot of her own. He’s killed before, and he’ll kill again if given the chance. Caught between staying far away from the bounty hunter business and staying alive, Stephanie reexamines her life and the possibility that being a bounty hunter is the solution rather than the problem. After disturbingly brief careers at the button factory, Kan Klean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Stephanie takes an office position in security, working for Ranger, the sexiest, baddest bounty hunter and businessman on two continents. Tempers and temperatures rise as competition ratchets up between the two men in her life—her on-again, off-again boyfriend, tough Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and her boss, Ranger. Can Stephanie Plum take the heat? Can you?
Twelve SharpFIRST 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?

I love the Stephanie Plum series, I laugh out loud every time I read a chapter, my daughter who also loves these books and I are always trying to figure out who would play these characters in a movie. Great reading on the lighter side. ...more info
- Love this series!
I am totally hooked on the Stephanie Plum series! I now own all thirteen books out in paperback. Some of these start out kind of slow but quickly pick up and hold my interest for the whole book. I whipped thru the last seven in less than seven days! So well written that I can see in my mind what's going on and laughing out loud is not an option! Can't help it as they are just so funny and enjoyable to read. Grandma M and Lula are real corkers! Love all the characters and story lines!...more info

By the time I get toward the end of a series, my interest wanes. Not so with the Stephanie Plum novels. I must admit, though, that I enjoyed them best if I read one and then waited a while before reading the next. It was like revisiting an old friend. I found myself in Stephanie in so many ways! I also appreciated the quick delivery!...more info

- Buy these and laugh and feel good.
Janet Evanovich is such a good writer and she "keeps you in stitches" of laughter from the first page until the last one in each book. We have read all of her 14 books in the Plum series and have become familiar with
the characters, which she describes to a T. Grandma Mazur, Lulu, Ranger and her main man, Joe are all real to us and when you get involved in her books in this series it is hard to feel "down" as she is such a funny writer with funny characters. We have Motormouth, and a couple of her other books, but the Plum series is still our favorite.
You keep writing Janet and we will keep buying and reading....more info
