Publisher Comments:

Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, where bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is about to implode in Janet Evanovich's wildest, hottest novel yet!

FIRST A STRANGER APPEARS
While chasing down the usual cast of miscreants and weirdos Stephanie discovers that a crazed woman is stalking her.

THEN THE STRANGER REVEALS HER SECRETS
The woman dresses in black, carries a 9mm Glock, and has a bad attitude and a mysterious connection to dark and dangerous Carlos Manoso...street name, Ranger.

NEXT, SOMEBODY DIES
The action turns deadly serious, and Stephanie goes from hunting skips to hunting a murderer.

SOON, THE CHASE IS ON
Ranger needs Stephanie for more reasons than he can say. And now, the two are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child, and stop a lunatic from raising the body count. When Stephanie Plum and Ranger get too close for comfort, vice cop Joe Morelli (her on-again, off-again boyfriend) steps in.

Will the ticking clock stop at the stroke of twelve, or will a stranger in the wind find a way to stop Stephanie Plum...forever? Filled with Janet Evanovich's trademark action, nonstop adventure, and sharp humor, Twelve Sharp shows why her novels have been called "hot stuff" (the New York Times), and Evanovich herself "the master" (San Francisco Examiner).

Review:

"The mixture of slapstick and gunplay that has put Evanovich's series about a sassy, less than competent New Jersey bounty hunter at the top of bestseller lists once again works its magic in Stephanie Plum's latest caper (after 2005's Eleven on Top). Stephanie, who freely admits her failings as a hunter of fugitives, faces a growing work backlog that threatens the continued existence of her job. Her clumsy efforts to clear some cases, along with the help of her outrageous colleague, Lula, result only in their adding another sad sack to the office payroll — a forlorn shoe salesman who's talked off a ledge by Stephanie's offer of a position as file clerk. Stephanie's ambivalence toward the two men in her life becomes harder to maintain when one of them, the mysterious Ranger, is accused of kidnapping his own daughter. Countless over-the-top scenes, including one at a funeral parlor, will delight longtime fans. 1.25 million first printing; author tour. (One-day laydown June 20)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Evanovich wisely soft-pedals the mystery...and finds exactly the right tone of danger-laden farce...spicing it with a million one-liners, aspiring bond enforcers and hapless criminals on the run." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Fans of the adventures of Stephanie Plum, hapless Trenton bounty hunter torn between two hunky bad boys, get what they want out of this installment..." Detroit Free Press

Review:

"[Evanovich] is one of the very few writers whose skill can turn what should be serious moments into boisterously funny scenes. And her technique shines in Twelve Sharp." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Another wonderful book in the Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter series. All twelve books are great reads, and will make you laugh out loud. You also do not have to read them in order, you will still understand what's going on - I didn't discover this series until I bought book 10, and I was hooked. I scrounged for the rest of the series wherever I could find them. Highly recommended!
