In this third book Stephanie is after "Uncle Mo," the local candy store/ice cream parlor owner, known by everybody in the neighborhood! Uncle Mo skips his court appearance for carrying a concealed weapon, and Stephanie, goes after him. Uncle Mo is nowhere to be found. The case soon winds up with attacks by strange anti-drug vigilantes, murdered men and porno films. The body count of the local drug dealers around his store continues to rise! Stephanie gets no help from the locals, only threats to leave uncle Mo alone. Lula, the prostitute turned file clerk, has a much greater voice in this novel, and she truly adds laughter to the story with one trip out on her bounty hunting training. Police officer Joe Morelli is back and Stephanie is even concerned he has a girlfriend since he no longer seems interested. Ranger is also back, with help and exercise!
This novel you really get closer with all the characters. The family dinner time just wouldn't be the same if one of Stephanie's friends wasn't invited to join them.
The book flows at a blistering pace, and Evanovich's writing style is packed with humor. The suspense is outstanding and it is the best mix of comedy and mystery out there. It is hard not to enjoy this book! I highly recommend this series you will laugh off your chair and out loud all the same!
In this outing, La Stephanie is after a much-revered Burg icon: Mo, the long-time owner of the neighborhood's candy store. "Mo would never do anything wrong," Stephanie is told by just about three-quarters of the Burg, most of whom are calling her mother to complain. But Stephanie, intrepid bounty hunter that she is, perseveres.
With her trusty pocketbook in tow (handcuffs, pepper spray, stun gun, a revolver if she remembers to take it from its hiding place in the cookie jar--and of course, every Burg Girl's must-have: a huge can of hairspray), Stephanie is off and running. Her trusty sidekicks in this outing include the hefty Lula, ex-hooker extraordinaire; the incredibly sexy and mysterious Ranger; and the equally sexy Morelli. (Readers of Book 2 will remember that Morelli and Steph experienced "Buick Interruptus" during their adventures; I am sorry to report that this time it's "kitchen floor interruptus").
Eight bodies and several incredibly hilarious mishaps later, Stephanie manages to get her man. I think. I was laughing so hard by the end of the book I had a coughing fit--and NOT from Stephanie's pepper spray, either!
On to Book 4. And for that one, I am NOT GOING TO LAUGH. You hear that, Grandma Mazur?
