New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is on the trail of semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch, an old man who can still slip out of sight. When a corpse is found in Eddie's garden and two of her friends vanish, Stephanie finds herself making a devil's bargain with her mentor, the Ranger, who'll give her all the help she needs--if she gives him everything he wants. Martin's Press.

Review:

Stephanie Plum, Janet Evanovich's bounty hunter star of Seven Up, is good at her job partly because of her infinite resourcefulness and partly because her world is one in which everyone on all sides of the law knows at least one member of her extended family. In this, the seventh offering in the Stephanie Plum series, she is chasing an elderly mobster who used to go out with her grandmother. Eddie DeChooch, though, is no less formidable for being old and he constantly eludes Stephanie, the police who want to question him about the corpse Stephanie found in his garage and Joyce, her arch-rival in the bail bond enforcement business. Stephanie's crowded social life gets ever more intense with her family pressing her to name a date for her wedding to Joe, her unreliable cop fiancé, her drastically attractive colleague Ranger, asking her for a night of bliss, her horribly perfect sister Valerie back from California with a down on men and the idiot stoners Moonman and Doug wandering around in super-hero costumes. Evanovich constantly ups the comic ante; DeChooch and his sidekicks manage to be menacingly obnoxious while remaining credibly characters in a farce. The social observation of families is as acute as ever while never passing up the chance for snappy one-liners. Above all, Stephanie herself remains a delightful tone of voice--a heroine considerably braver than she ever lets herself notice and rather smarter an investigator than she or anyone else gives her credit for being. --Roz Kaveney

Review:

"A madcap comic mystery--Jersey-girl style." --the New York Times

"A clever cast of good-hearted hoods and nutty family members rival The Sopranos." --People

"If you like your summer reads hot and sassy, try Seven Up." --Boston Herald

"Evanovich is the crown princess of detective fiction . . . Seven Up is brassy, comical, and light-hearted." --Bookpage

"[Seven Up] is funny, sexy, and scary." --Booklist

"Edgy romantic triangle, the loopy family relationships, or the bounty-hunting jobs that skate between absurdity and genuine tension." --Denver Post

"Expect a laugh per page . . . Bottom line: Plum Pick." --People

Book Description Pan MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English. Brand new Book. Semiretired mob guy Eddie DeCooch is caught trafficking contraband cigarettes through Trenton, New Jersey. When DeCooch fails to show for a court appearance, bond enforcement agent Stephanie Plum is assigned the task of finding him and dragging his decrepit ass back to jail. Not such an easy job, it turns out, since DeCooch has learned a lot of tricks over the years and isn't afraid to use his gun. He's already shot Loretta Ricci, an innocent old lady, and left her for worm food in his shed. He wouldn't mind shooting Stephanie next. Likeable losers (and Steph's former high school classmates) Walter MoonMan Dunphy and Dougie The Dealer Kruper have inadvertently become involved with DeCooch. They've gotten sucked into an operation that is much more than simple cigarette smuggling and holds risks far greater than anyone could have imagined. When Dougie disappears, Steph goes into search mode. When Mooner disappears, she calls in the heavy artillery and asks master bounty hunter Ranger for help. Ranger's price for the job? One night with Stephanie, dusk to dawn. Not information she's want to share with her sometime live-in roommate, vice cop Joe Morelli, A typical dilemma in the world of Plum. And on the homefront, Stephanie's perfect sister, Valerie, has decided to move back to Trenton, bringing her two kids from hell with her. Grandma Mazur is asking questions about being a lesbian, and Bob, the bulimic dog, is eating everything in sight--including the furniture. Mud wrestling, motorcycles, fast cars, fast food, and fast men. It's Seven Up. Absolutely Janet Evanovich at her very best. Seller Inventory # BTE9780312980146
