Product Description

Review

'Evanovich, author of the wonderful Stephanie Plum novels, is a clever writer with a strong streak of laugh out loud sardonic humour.' ( Melbourne Weekly )

'Nearly 300 pages of hoot-inducing entertainment.' ( Sun Herald )

'A hilarious, machine gun-paced crime caper featuring bounty hunter and doughnut devotee Stephanie Plum. It's clever, slick, funny and fun, with a cast of highly likeable, albeit mostly loopy characters and a full speed- ahead plot... TWELVE SHARP is pure gold.' ( Sunday Morning Post ) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

Book Description

Format: Hardcover
This is the twelvth (well actually it is the 13th novel) in the fantastic Stephanie Plum series, if you haven't already read them they are uncofusingly numbered - starting with One of the Money, and this year up to Twelve Sharp. They feature Stephanie Plum, a 30ish youngish, big-haired, Jersey girl, who, having lost her job buying lingere for a cheap chain store turns to bounty hunting for her cousin Vinnie to pay the rent. Lucikly her parents live a couple of miles down the road in the 'burg' as well so she doesn't have to stray too far for food.

In between incompetent bouts of bounty hunting with her side-kick Lula, a fuller figured black woman with delusions of becoming a singer in a band, and a tendency to wear spandex clothes a couple of sizes too small, Stephi actually does solve crimes. Trenton crimes that is. And she is torn between the two men in her life; Ranger, a tall dark silent Latino bounty hunter and every woman's wet dream; and Morelli, a tall dark silent Italian detective - and every woman's wet dream......

In this outing Stephi is the only bounty hunter working for her cousin Vinnie, so they interview for new BEA (Bond Enforcement Agents) with varying success - mostly they seem to be a variety of black lether and chap wearing, shot gun wielding pychos.

And Stephi is being stalked, it seems, by Carmen Manoso, Ranger's wife - only who knew that Ranger got married 6 months ago. When Carmen turns up dead and Rangers 10 year old daughter from a previous marriage is kidnapped, Stephi's instincts kick in and she starts investigating. Only she still has to make rent so there are a variety of dead-beats and arsonists she has to pull in for money.

Stephi's arh-enemy Joyce Barnhadt is back too. Meaner and in tighter black leather than ever.

Twelve Sharp is characterised by the Evanovich formula; laugh out loud funny in parts, smart dialogue and larger than life characters. The story formula is on safe ground in this book and fans will find it satisfyingly familiar - Stephanie's life is in danger, Ranger is mysterious and irresistable, Morelli sexy and loyal, Lula outrageous, grandma crazy. Those hoping for something to tie up the love triangle or move forward the dynamic will be left disappointed, although there is a tease towards the end. Vintage Stephanie Plum and I thoroughly enjoyed it; on completion I immediately turned back to page 1 to start all over again.

Format: Hardcover
Only a Stephanie Plum novel would cause some to complain because the plot had an actual mystery and intrigue in it. That shows how much we've been spoiled by Janet Evanovich's comic touch. We come to the new books in the series for the entertainment (much like people once did for Charlie Chaplin) and we're surprised when serious themes emerge.

I thought that Twelve Sharp was by far the most impressive novel in the series. The story-telling moves beyond Pink Panther comedy into dealing with the serious consequences of actions we take. At the same time, the book goes down very smoothly.

The serious side is well done. Stephanie finds herself stalked by a young woman with a gun she doesn't mind using who claims to be Ranger's wife. What's that all about? Stephanie is also at risk for being kidnapped. And then Ranger's daughter is missing. It's a nicely complicated mystery and is unraveled in fine fashion. While this part of the story is not yet up to Dame Agatha's best, it's more than satisfying.

The character development of Stephanie and Ranger through the plot is quite remarkable in this story. In the past, Ranger has been the Superman of mystery who could do no wrong. She's been in his thrall . . . but kept at a distance only by his self-restraint. So why has he been self-restrained? In this story, we learn more about Ranger and begin to sense his vulnerabilities. An unexpected pregnancy made Ranger a father at a young age. Since then, he's met his financial responsibilities and kept his distance from similar complications. But that all comes unglued when his daughter is kidnapped and Ranger is the suspect the police are looking for. As a result, Ranger has to go undercover.
