Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to
Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned
into a nightmare, she's flying back to New Jersey solo, and
someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse
still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A.
layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside
pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and
guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was
supposed to be carrying.
Only one other person has seen the missing photograph - Stephanie
Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end
up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist
Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the
first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second
sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her
descriptive skills, she'll need to watch her back.
Over at the Bail Bonds Agency it's business as usual - until
the bonds bus serving as Vinnie's temporary HQ goes up in
smoke, Stephanie's wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their
'largest' FTA yet, lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt
moves into Stephanie's apartment, and everyone wants to know
what happened in Hawaii?!
Morelli, Trenton's hottest cop, isn't talking about Hawaii.
Ranger, the man of mystery, isn't talking about Hawaii. And all
Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is ...
'Evanovich's series of New Jersey comedy thrillers are among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction...' -- GQ Magazine 'Packed with her familiar wicked ear for dialogue...Plum is not just a smart private eye but a heroine with a sense of humour' -- Daily Mail 'The mere fact that Evanovich has stuck at this formula for 18 books is extraordinary. All feature the hair-brained adventures of the inept but charming NY bounty hunter Stephanie Plum; a New Jersey gal with lots of pluck' -- Manly Daily
