Description

The First Full Length Stephanie Plum Between-the-Numbers Novel from #1 Bestselling Author Janet Evanovich.

Turn on all the lights and check under your bed. Things are about to get spooky in Trenton, New Jersey.

According to legend, the Jersey Devil prowls the Pine Barrens and soars above the treetops in the dark of night. As eerie as this might seem, there are things in the Barrens that are even more frightening and dangerous. And there are monkeys. Lots of monkeys.

Wulf Grimoire is a world wanderer and an opportunist who can kill without remorse and disappear like smoke. He's chosen Martin Munch, boy genius, as his new business partner, and he's chosen the Barrens as his new playground.

Munch received his doctorate degree in quantum physics when he was twenty-two. He's now twenty-four, and while his brain is large, his body hasn't made it out of the boys' department at Macy's. Anyone who says good things come in small packages hasn't met Munch. Wulf Grimoire is looking for world domination. Martin Munch would be happy if he could just get a woman naked and tied to a tree.

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has Munch on her most-wanted list for failure to appear in court. Plum is the all-American girl stuck in an uncomfortable job, succeeding on luck and tenacity. Usually she gets her man. This time she gets a monkey. She also gets a big guy named Diesel.

Diesel pops in and out of Plum's life like birthday cake – delicious to look at and taste, not especially healthy as a steady diet, gone by the end of the week if not sooner. He's an über bounty hunter with special skills when it comes to tracking men and pleasing women. He's after Grimoire, and now he's also after Munch. And if truth were told, he wouldn't mind setting Stephanie Plum in his crosshairs.

Diesel and Plum hunt down Munch and Grimoire, following them into the Barrens, surviving cranberry bogs, the Jersey Devil, a hair-raising experience, sand in their underwear, and, of course . . . monkeys.

      • 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 12 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. She and her husband live in New Hampshire, in house with a view of the Connecticut River Valley.

        Starred review from March 2, 2009
        Klutzy bounty hunter Stephanie Plum teams up with mysterious Diesel and the monkey left on her doorstep to track down a nerdy genius and his sinister business partner in the depths of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Lorelei King does her usual superlative job for the Evanovich oeuvre, adding juice and dimension to each wacky character. She deftly handles everyone, from bail bond receptionist Connie’s classic New Jersey accent and outrageous sidekick Lula’s brash outbursts to Ranger’s smooth purr (it’s amazing how he, as voiced by King, can make the word “babe” mean so many different things). The structures of Plum novels tend to be similar; it’s the laughs that keep readers coming back. King enhances the humor of this series, so much so that Evanovich fans should consider putting down that book and plugging in the CD player instead. A St. Martin’s Press hardcover (reviewed online).

        January 1, 2009
        Trenton 's most adorable bounty hunter (Plum Lucky, 2008, etc.) goes up against the most fearsome antagonist in a series not notable for the fear factor.

        Nobody would think twice about Martin Munch, a geeky quantum physicist who missed his court date after beating up his supervisor, Eugene Scanlon, if he hadn 't grabbed a magnetometer on the way out of Scanlon 's office. But when the supervisor turns up with his neck broken, presumably by whoever left his handprints burned into Scanlon 's neck, Stephanie Plum wonders what her latest search for one of her bail-bondsman cousin Vinnie 's no-shows may lead to. All indications are that Munch has teamed up with Gerwulf Grimoire, the latest fugitive that Stephanie 's not-quite-lover Diesel is pursuing. Wulf, who boasts a Dragon Claw and a repertory of magic tricks, is meant to be one scary dude, but he comes across as a refugee from a lesser James Bond movie, and the plot that yokes the two cases together —Wulf and Munch 's attempt to control the world 's weather in order to extort zillions from crippled nations —is no more convincing than Stephanie 's repeated escapes from a fate worse than death by kicking her assailant in the same sensitive place.

        What remains, as usual, is the nonstop sitcom jokes, which often make the first third of this weirdly plotted adventure very funny. But this time even the humor, which depends on such staples as pet monkeys and fart jokes, is a mite synthetic as well. Maybe Stephanie 's quarry should have stuck to talking about the weather instead of trying to do something about it.

        Those who know and love Stephanie, Ranger, Morelli, Lula, Bob the dog, Rex the hamster, and the rest of that wacky crew in Evanovichs Trenton-set series, have also clasped Diesel, who appears only in these between-the-numbers tales, to their collective hearts. Big, blond, dimpled, and paranormal, he flits into Stephs bail-bondswoman life with unnerving irregularity, and he has special powers that extend well beyond bounty hunting. This time Diesel has a cousin named Wulf, pale, black-clad, and dead-eyed, who has hidden a nerdy scientist and a lot of equipment in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. The repartee sparkles and shimmies from razor wit to toilet humor (and back again), and the plot involves mud, food tossing, explosive farts, occasional kissing, and hilarious (and true-to-life, alas) allergic reactions (that would be from Lula). A group of monkeys, and one in particular named Carl, figure mightily in the plot, in one instance actually making the stoic, understated Ranger burst into laughter. Dont miss Morellis brother-in-law, the sly Star Trek and vampire tropes, and the Jersey Devil. Incredible amounts of fun.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2008, American Library Association.)
