Janet Evanovich is the hottest author in America, and her Stephanie Plum novels have taken the nation by storm!

She's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. Her 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 thinks it sounds 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 of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger acting more mysteriously than ever (and the tension with vice cop Joe Morelli getting hotter), she finds herself 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:

"Too bad the slapstick, cartoonish humor overwhelms the slim plot. Only for fans who can't get enough." Library Journal

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:

"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

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:

The number one blockbuster bestselling phenomenon continues in the tenth Stephanie Plum adventure
