Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She's been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Stephanie thinks it's time for a change. So she quits. She wants something safe and normal. But the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can't compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now...

Stephanie is stalked by a maniac returned from the grave for the sole purpose of putting her into a burial plot of her own. He's killed before, and he'll kill again if given the chance. Caught between staying far away from the bounty hunter business and staying alive, Stephanie reexamines her life and the possibility that being a bounty hunter is the solution rather than the problem. After disturbingly brief careers at the button factory, Kan Klean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Stephanie takes an office position in security, working for Ranger, the sexiest, baddest bounty hunter and businessman on two continents. Tempers and temperatures rise as competition ratchets up between the two men in her life — her on-again, off-again boyfriend, tough Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and her boss, Ranger. Can Stephanie Plum take the heat? Can you?

Review:

"New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum (last seen in 2004's Ten Big Ones) stumbles out of the gate due to some forced humor, but she eventually hits her usual entertaining stride in a tale that includes exploding cars, volatile wedding preparations and heated romantic entanglements. Stephanie decides to quit her job and seek less dangerous work after receiving a couple of disquieting notes. But the notes turn to threats and attacks, and she learns that her ineptitude is not confined to bounty hunting but transfers well to a succession of low-paying, sometimes humiliating jobs. After taking on Stephanie's previous duties, sidekick Lula naturally calls on Stephanie to lend a hand so that her bounty hunting travails continue unabated. Foul-mouthed Lula proves to have some pretty brutal ideas about how to bring 'em back. Bestseller Evanovich may be performing the same tricks over and over at this point in the series (the bumbling sleuth act, sexual-tension jokes, etc.), but most readers will find this a pleasing romp. Agent, Robert Gottlieb. 1.25-million printing; author tour. (On sale June 21)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Janet Evanovich has done a remarkable job of maintaining control of the series....Eleven is a gem, balancing laugh-out-loud scenes with just enough poignant peeks at the vulnerable Stephanie to keep her a real human being and not a caricature." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Review:

"One job Stephanie doesn't try for is standup comedienne. She'd be a hit. The one-liners fly throughout the pages as events roar by. Fast-paced, funny and just as outrageous as readers have come to expect." Bookreporter.com

Review:

"The jokes, comic bits and funny scenes come so fast and furious that only old hands will notice there's even less mystery than usual....No plot to get in the way of the story — just the way it should be for Stephanie." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"It's wonderful to watch both a beloved character and a cherished author grow, and both Stephanie Plum and Evanovich do not disappoint....Although brimming with lines that will have readers howling with laughter, this installment also allows flashes of insight into the men in Stephanie's life..." Booklist (Starred Review)
