As readers of Janet Evanovich's two previous books about funny, feisty, family-tied bounty hunter Stephanie Plum already know, she operates in "the burg"--a "comfy residential chunk of Trenton, New Jersey, where houses and minds are proud to be narrow and hearts are generously wide open." On this turf, Plum fights for justice and fashion points--this time in pursuit of a beloved neighborhood candystore owner who seems to be moonlighting as an anti-drug vigilante. Evanovich now lives in New Hampshire, but authentic affection for Trenton energizes her prose. Plums in paperback include One for the Money and Two for the Dough. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
From Publishers Weekly
Trenton, N.J., bounty hunter and former lingerie buyer Stephanie Plum (last seen in Two for the Dough) becomes persona non grata when she tracks down a neighborhood saint who has failed to show up for his court appearance. No one wants to help Stephanie, who works for her bail-bondsman cousin, Vinnie. While questioning admirers of the man nicknamed Uncle Mo, Stephanie is attacked and knocked out as she cases his candy store. She comes to next to the dead body of her attacker, who turns out to be a well-known drug dealer. Suddenly, she can't avoid stumbling across the bodies of dead drug dealers: one in a dumpster, one in a closet and four in the candy store basement. Stephanie suspects that mild-mannered Mo has become a vigilante and is cleaning up the streets in a one-man killing spree. But when she's repeatedly threatened by men wearing ski masks, she wonders if Mo has company and just might be in over his head. Despite her new clownish orange hair job, Stephanie muddles through another case full of snappy one-liners as well as corpses. By turns buttressed and hobbled by her charmingly clueless family and various cohorts (including streetwise co-worker Lulu, detective and heartthrob Morelli and professional bounty hunter Ranger), the redoubtable Stephanie is a character crying out for a screen debut. Mystery Guild selection; Literary Guild alternate; major ad/promo; author tour.

Now, Janet Evanovich is a well known author. I am a struggling author. Which of us has more trouble getting people to read our books?? *sigh*
Stephanie has gotten herself involved chasing criminal who have chosen to miss their audience with the honorable district authority who in return has chosen to revoke their right to liberty. Stephanie has no training, no background with such individuals, and if it were not for bad luck would have no luck at all trips her way into situations worse than she started and comes up with roses. Oh, let me not forget to tell you about the detective hunk she has a history but cannot manage to connect with because every time something happens. Talk about frustration!
There are 23 available stories in this series so far and I have read only three. I am dying to see what could possible happen next.
Bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum is on the hunt again, in Janet Evanovich's "Three to Get Deadly," and she is out to catch The Burg's most wanted and dangerous "Failure to Appears": drug dealers, murderers, guys in chicken costumes. And poor Stephanie has the battle scars to prove it: she is shot at, knocked unconscious and has her hair dyed (unwillingly) orange.
Janet Evanovich, in this series, has managed to deliver humor along with the suspense, and "Three to Get Deadly" has its fair share of both. Someone is murdering drug dealers and addicts in The Burg, and the killer means business. Stephanie's biggest problem isn't the cops or the actual killer: it's the public. Every citizen is supporting this vigilante, some to the point of taking up weapons to protect him. They send Stephanie their message in a hail of bullets: "Stop going after our hero. He is cleaning up the town!"
Meanwhile, the questions facing Stephanie, Ranger, Morelli, and Lula multiply. Could the kindly, candy store owner "Uncle Mo" be a cold-blooded killer? Will the bodies stop popping up in bizarre ways? Is Stephanie ever going to own a decent car? "Three to Get Deadly" is a top-notch crime thriller while tickling your funny bones. Stephanie has been getting more endearing with each novel, and I can't wait to read the next one! This is shaping up to be a great summer of fun reading.
