Publisher Comments:

She's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. He mother's convinced she'll end up dead...or worse, without a man. She's Stephanie Plum and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thought it would sound good to put it that way...)

It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum...except that she becomes the target of a gang. And the target of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger out of town (and Stephanie on the outs with vice cop Morelli), she finds herself alone, with a decision to make: how to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as the Junkman. There's only one safe place, and it has Ranger's name all over it — if she can find it. And if the Junkman doesn't find her first. With Lula riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock in her most suspenseful novel yet. Ten Big Ones is page-turning entertainment and Janet Evanovich is the best there is.

Review:

"Evanovich is at her best in her 10th Stephanie Plum adventure (after 2003's To the Nines), which reads like the screenplay for a 1930s screwball comedy: fast, funny and furious. The Trenton, N.J., bond enforcement agent (bounty hunter), accompanied by her trigger-happy friend Lula, an errant file clerk, is after a quirky collection of bail-jumpers — a man who killed a neighbor's rosebushes relieving himself on them, a drag queen musician/school bus driver accused of assault, and a woman who claims she robbed a Frito-Lay truck because she hated her low-carb diet — when she witnesses a convenience store robbery. Unfortunately, Anton Ward, the holdup man, learns that Stephanie can identify him and puts out a contract on her. After she tells her colleague Ranger her predicament, he offers her sanctuary. As usual, she's torn between sexy Ranger and her longtime lover, cop Joe Morelli, with whom she's living. The rollicking plot, replete with car chases, family squabbles, massive doughnut consumption and a frantic, wacky finale, keeps the reader breathless. As usual, Evanovich's eccentric characters — fun-loving Grandma Mazur, anxious to accompany Stephanie on her job; self-absorbed sister Valerie and her hapless fiancé Albert Kloughn (pronounced Clown); Sally Sweet, the transvestite who shows a talent for wedding planning — are a treat." Agent, Robert Gottlieb, Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Although the strain of keeping her formula fresh and funny shows a bit...there's still enough to entertain readers....Not the high mark of an outstanding series...but still good fun for the legions of devotees." Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist

Review:

"No less than her plotting, Evanovich's characterizations are models of screwball artistry." Marilyn Stasio, The New York Time Book Review

Review:

"Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter with a great sense of humor that balances out her attitude and worse luck...[Stephanie Plum] is like Dorothy Parker with a lousy job and a Jersey accent." Time

Review:

"Funny, witty, and occasionally steamy...evolving comedy starring a sassy contemporary woman with a scene-stealing supporting cast." Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Evanovich's series is as addictive as Fritos — and, 10 books in, not losing any of its salty crunch...colorful characters....Evanovich serves up consistently craveable goodies — and needless to say, they're always perfect for the beach." People

Review:

"A perfect summer read, with lots of action and snappy repartee...you don't need to read the first nine to jump into Ten Big Ones...one of the best in the series." The Oregonian

Review:

"This 10th novel is a standout that zips along to its top-this finale." Hartford Courant

Review:

"[Plum's] charms are many, and they're all on display here." New York Daily News

Review:

"Chutzpah and sheer comic inventiveness...in addition to good fun, the Evanovich/Plum books serve as a nice antidote to everything in pop fiction today." Washington Post

Review:

"If you prefer your protagonists with big hair and based in Jersey then Stephanie Plum is your crime solver of choice. Evanovich has a huge following thanks to the millions of readers who aren't ashamed to laugh at Stephanie's often predictable but nevertheless funny shenanigans." USA Today

Review:

"Evanovich knows how to keep the wheels on her plum-good series." Orlando Sentinel

Review:

"A richly amusing, fast-paced mystery that is unequaled. Don't deny yourself the pleasure of Evanovich's Ten Big Ones...Stephanie Plum is a 21st-century Lucy Ricardo from Trenton, N.J. She has a real talent for getting herself into impossible situations then using her slightly-off-the-bubble creativity to get herself out of jams. She's gutsy, she's street-smart and she's first-class entertainment." The Daily Oakland Press

Review:

"Evanovich is possibly the only mystery writer whose extreme humor can turn what should be serious moments into boisterously funny scenes. The boundaries of good taste are deliciously stretched as Evanovich makes comedy into a kind of art." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Review:

"The best thing about summer is that there's a new Stephanie Plum, ripe for the picking and guaranteed to be sweet, juicy, and very, very good for you. If you haven't read this series...you're missing something wonderful...just go out and get the first book, One for the Money, then once you're hooked, and you will be, go get the rest of them." Kingston Observer

Review:

"If it's humor and action you seek in a mystery, you can't go wrong with Ten Big Ones...if you don't mind laughing out loud every other page, Evanovich's 10 Plum entries are the books for you." World Herald (Omaha, NE)

Review:

"A whirlwind of antic adventures...the characters deliver plenty...since Evanovich utilizes numbers instead of the alphabet to identify Plum's adventures, this series could continue forever, and what fun that would be." Acadiana LifeStyle

Review:

"Stephanie and Lula are the Abbott and Costello of law enforcement." Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Synopsis:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes the latest Stephanie Plum adventure. The fun shifts into fear when Plum is the lone witness to a gang-executed robbery and cop shooting. There's a contract issued for her head and a California-based killer looking to fill that contract.

Synopsis:

"I'm Stephanie Plum. My mother says that I'm famous and have to set a good example. She's right, but I'm from Jersey and truth is, I have a hard time getting a grip on the good example thing."

Swing off the Jersey Turnpike and you'll be in bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's neighborhood. You'll know it because all hell will be breaking loose. Not that she attracts trouble — it just seems to follow her. In Ten Big Ones it explodes at a deli, and when Stephanie pegs a robber as a member of a vicious Trenton gang, they peg her as dead. Vice cop Joe Morelli fears she's in way too deep — even with the help of crime-solving cross-dressing bus driver, Sweet Sally, and Stephanie's friend Lula riding shotgun as backup. With a notorious killer on her tail, Stephanie figures the best hideout is Ranger's secret lair...

Love, love, love Evanovich. She is a fast read and a great escape. Only problem, reading in public because you tend to laugh out loud!

Janet Evanovich has done it again. While reading "Ten Big Ones," I could feel myself in the story. There's mystery, drama, humor, romance, reality, and heroism. What else could one want?
