Amazon.com Review

Never mind who did the deed with New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum at the end of High Five. Five months later, that night's only a dim, cherished memory, and Stephanie's freezing her butt off on a Trenton bridge trying to keep her friend Carol--caught shoplifting some crotchless panties she was too embarrassed to buy--from committing suicide.
Truth is, I didn't for a minute think she'd jump. For one thing, she was wearing a four-hundred-dollar jacket from Wilson Leather. You just don't jump off a bridge in a four-hundred-dollar jacket. It isn't done. The jacket would get ruined. Carol was from the Chambersburg section of Trenton, just like me, and in the Burg you gave the jacket to your sister, then you jumped off the bridge.
When Stephanie finally talks Carol down and makes it in to work at Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, it's only to find that her libido-boosting pal Ranger, the professional bounty hunter and sometime hit man, has disappeared. A building owned by black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos has burned down, with Ramos's son Homer lying inside, dead from a gunshot wound. Ranger, who was caught on film there by video cameras, is wanted for questioning. Stephanie's boss Vinnie wants her to find him, but Stephanie, who knows she won't find Ranger if he doesn't want to be found, refuses. Soon everyone, from her cop boyfriend Joe Morelli to the two Laurel and Hardy wannabes who suddenly start following her around Trenton in a badass black Lincoln, thinks she's hot on Ranger's trail.

And Stephanie's got other things to worry about. For one thing, Grandma Mazur's moved in with her, and so has Bob, a golden retriever who's only partly house trained. Then Ranger starts popping up at odd times of the night, with instructions for Stephanie to keep an eye on another Ramos son, Hannibal. Add to that one homicidal maniac, a couple more dead bodies, Stephanie's usual bad car karma, and the zit from hell, and you've got yourself one fine Stephanie Plum adventure. Will Stephanie triumph? You can bet a jelly doughnut on it. And there's another great cliffhanger waiting at the end. --Barrie Trinkle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Sexy, smart-talking New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum returns for her sixth wildly amusing mystery (after 1999's High Five). Determination and contacts (she's grown up with half the cops and crooks in Trenton) compensate for Steph's poor aim with a gun, bad luck with cars and soft-hearted approach to her job (one bail jumper evades her four times). The police are after her mentor, the mysterious Ranger, wanted for killing drug and gun dealer Homer Ramos. Claiming he's innocent, Ranger persuades Steph to help him keep an eye on the Ramos clan. Steph teams up with her lover, vice cop Joe Morelli, then strikes out on her own when she realizes neither Joe nor Ranger will share information with her. When Mafia thugs get involved, she barely avoids kidnapping and torture. Meanwhile, there's her love life to deal with. Can she be physically attracted to Ranger and be in love with Joe? Evanovich spins all these threads, plus more, into a lunatic tapestry of nonstop action peopled by wacky characters straight out of a 1930s screwball comedy: Steph's Grandma Mazur, 80 years old, with the world view of a teenage punk; Mooner and Dougie, two lovable but zonked-out stolen goods dealers who have a closeout sale before going to jail; Habib and Mitchell, mobsters who follow Steph when Mitchell's wife doesn't need the car for kids' soccer games; and Steph's co-worker and pal, Lula, a gun-toting ex-prostitute always ready for an adventure. Evanovich just keeps getting better. (June)

For all those fans who have followed bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum's haphazard adventures, 'Hot Six' is well worth the wait. Those looking for a funny and exiting read will also be fulfilled. Stephanie runs through the book in a comedy of errors; plagued by a killer zit, Pakistani hitmen and her near senile Grandma Mazur. Ranger, Stephanie's mentor and sometime partner (not to mention object of her lust) has Failed To Appear to court. To make matters worse, he was caught on security camera leaving a building that was soon after torched, and contained one very dead gangster's son. Stephanie tries to help him stay on top of the law (and is dangerously near to ending up underneath him) as well as dealing with a new room-mate (her Grandma), a new furry friend, a boyfriend so hot that he's almost melting, and a plethora of dangerous but amusing FTAs. The gang from Vinnie's Bond Agency are all there, Lula, Connie and even the repulsive Joyce Barnhardt. It has been interesting to follow the character growth of (especially) Stephanie and Joe Morelli. We find this here as Stephanie gets a little more hardcore and Joe shows one or two emotions. This book slots in perfectly with the continuing Plum Saga, Evanovich proves that sequels can still be rivoting and quality material. And as for the end...... well all I can tell you is that Evanovich throws in another surprise, and leaves me waiting on the edge of my seat for the next book! Read it for yourself!

I discovered Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series the last week of May 2000. Books one through five were finished by June 10, 2000. Hot Six was released June 20th, and I finished it on June 22d. Look, I have a life, honest. Mystery books come in and go out of my bookshelf. This series is here to stay. In Hot Six Evanovich continues to satisfy the demands of this picky reader. Stephanie Plum, still-learning bounty hunter from the burg of Trenton NJ finds herself in the middle of it again, with favorite characters present and driving poor Stephanie nuts: Grandma Mazur, the gang at Vinne's bond office, the ever elusive Ranger, and of course everyone's favorite handsome rouge cop, Joe Morelli. Not just more of the same though. Evanovich adds new colorful characters to her well-developed cast, folks I hope we'll see again. The book jacket tells you about the story. Let me tell you why you should read it. This book, like the rest in the series, is fast-paced and full of humor, from the tried and true characters, to the new and often nutty characters. So many mystery books have "downtime", where we leap into the next day or skip over how we get some information, and forget the drugery of meals. Hot Six if full of detail, and the belly laughs come from the detail. Hot Six takes you all the way, showing you the day in and out, with all the guffaws. It draws its humor during "down" times in the case - the surveillance, the what-is-going-on-in-the-world-while-the-main-chase-is-on. Evanovich has a true talent for efficiently developing her characters into lively personable and oh so funny people that could, but thank goodness some don't, live next door.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the sixth book in the Stephanie Plum series, New Jersey's hysterical bounty hunter.
In this book, she is asked to pick up Ranger! Her friend and fellow bounty hunter, her mentor Ranger, who is also sought by the police for questioning in the murder of an organized crime figure. Can she do this and go after her friend? Stephanie believes Ranger is innocent and if anything, only kills bad guys.
Joe Morelli, gorgeous cop friend, is here in all his glory and the end was very surprising from Joe. Stephanie's hysterically funny grandmother has moved in with her. This totally ruins Stephanie's sex life!
A cop friend has asked her to dog sit while he goes on vacation, and doesn't return to take the dog back. Move over Rex here comes Bob! A new character emerges, Mooner. Mooner is an always stoned guy and funny. He adds considerably to the laughs in this Plum mystery.
This is a very entertaining series. I have never laughed out loud with any book as I do the Plum series. The pages really turn as they are truly delightful reading. Hot Six is no exception, it is a 5 star book!

This is the sixth book in the series about Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's hysterically inept bounty hunter. In this latest escapade, she is searching for her friend and fellow bounty hunter, Ranger, who is also sought by the police for questioning in the murder of an organized crime figure. Stephanie believes Ranger is innocent and if anything, only kills bad guys.
Joe Morelli, hunk cop, is here in all his glory and there's a surprise at the end, which I hope will be answered in the 7th book!
Stephanie's hysterically funny grandmother has moved in with her. A cop friend has asked her to dog sit while he goes on vacation, and has no intention of taking the dog back. The dog, Bob, as it turns out has a strange eating problem, he eats everything and anything. There are a couple scenes involving, ah, dog doo that had me LOL and rolling!
A new character emerges, Mooner. Mooner is a chronically stoned guy and very funny. He adds considerably to the chuckles in this new Plum mystery. Other critics have written that Evanovich doesn't write mystery, or that the plot hasn't changed, etc., etc., etc. In this dreary day and age anything that can make me laugh out loud is worth reading, for sure.
