      • bioText: Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including One for the Money and Sizzling Sixteen, and the Diesel & Tucker series, including Wicked Appetite. Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn't have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters. As she puts it, "When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency." But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After a dozen romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet's favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles.

        May 22, 2006
        The mixture of slapstick and gunplay that has put Evanovich's series about a sassy, less than competent New Jersey bounty hunter at the top of bestseller lists once again works its magic in Stephanie Plum's latest caper (after 2005's Eleven on Top
        ). Stephanie, who freely admits her failings as a hunter of fugitives, faces a growing work backlog that threatens the continued existence of her job. Her clumsy efforts to clear some cases, along with the help of her outrageous colleague, Lula, result only in their adding another sad sack to the office payroll—a forlorn shoe salesman who's talked off a ledge by Stephanie's offer of a position as file clerk. Stephanie's ambivalence toward the two men in her life becomes harder to maintain when one of them, the mysterious Ranger, is accused of kidnapping his own daughter. Countless over-the-top scenes, including one at a funeral parlor, will delight longtime fans. 1.25 million first printing; author tour.

        June 1, 2006
        This 12th installment in the popular Stephanie Plum series offers just enough mayhem, hilarity, and danger to keep readers riveted. A stranger is stalking Stephanie and reveals shocking information about fellow bounty hunter Ranger, one of her two love interests. Meanwhile, the bail bond office is extraordinarily busy, with Stephanie and her sidekick, Lula, pursuing a menopausal, knife-wielding spouse, a geriatric porn proprietor, and a timid exhibitionist. The antics of Stephanie, Lula, and Grandma are guaranteed to keep readers in stitches. Particularly memorable are a rowdy bar fight, a foot chase through a mall, a visit to a sex-toy shop, a funeral-home rock performance, and Grandma's impersonation of Mick Jagger. Tension mounts when Stephanie becomes entangled in a child abduction case and finds herself the next target of a crazed man. No Stephanie Plum mystery is complete without some passion and indecision regarding Trenton cop Joe Morelli and Ranger, and this one does not disappoint. Evanovich fans and newcomers to this series will applaud number 12. Highly recommended for all public libraries; extra copies are essential.

        Starred review from July 1, 2006
        In a manner almost elegant in its offhandedness, Stephanie Plum gets us up to speed on her life as a bounty hunter in Trenton, NJ; her ever-eccentric family; and her fellows in her cousin's bail-bond office. It doesn't take more than a few pages. Then someone who is mistaken for Ranger--one of the two men in and out of Stephanie's life (the other is Morelli the cop)--is accused of kidnapping his daughter. Evanovich uses all of her considerable arsenal here: wisecracking humor and set pieces about cars, neighborhoods, family matters, and the funeral parlor (now with new directors straight out of " Queer Eye for the Burg Guy"). Then, at one point, both Morelli and Ranger are living out of Stephanie's apartment (she flees to her childhood bedroom). Evanovich also deftly uses celebrity stalking and identity theft to sketch a quite scary bad guy, and she creates in Ranger's daughter, Julie, a spirited 10-year-old version of her mesmerizing father. The ending is downright terrifying, but the coda is soothing and features a cake with icing roses. Kids? Cupcakes? What could possibly be next?(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2006, American Library Association.)
