High Five

by Janet Evanovich

‘Stephanie Plum’ series Book #5

Bail jumping in Trenton is down to small potatoes. Stephanie’s only open case is a small bond for a small violation, commited by a small person who raises Stephanie’s frustration leven in big ways. So short of money and long on bills, Stephanie comes up with a plan – diversify! Signing on as an intern with entrepreneurial Super Bounty Hunter Ranger, Stephanie ventures into Ranger’s mostly morally correct and marginally legal operations.

None of this makes vice cop Joe Morelli a happy man. The cop in him can’t help but wonder as to the source of Stephanie’s expensive new cars. And the rest of him, the man who’s been friend and lover to Stephanie, can’t help but wonder if there’s more to the partnership than meets the eye.

The internship is downgraded to second priority when Uncle Fred goes missing. Even though Grandma Mazur is sure he was abducted by aliens, Stephanie sets out to look for Fred. He’s a perfectly average senior citizen, and he’s disappeared without a trace while running errands. He’s left his ten-year-old Pontiac station wagon locked up nice and neat in the Grand Union parking lot, the cleaning is carefully arranged on the back seat, and his wife is at home, waiting for him to return with the bread and the milk and the olive loaf bologna. Locked in the top drawer of his desk are photos of a body, dismembered and stuffed into a garbage bag. And locked away in the computer files of a another average citizen are the clues that will lead Stephanie to Fred.

Review: Read June 22nd, 2006. I can’t get enough of this series! I’m surprised at how Stephanie, even though she’s only a fictional character, can stay sane between her ‘job’ and her family. I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I had someone like Grandma Mazur as part of my family. Joe’s comment ticked me off, and Ranger … oh, there’s a man I’d love to get my hands on. I don’t know how Janet does it, but you really feel for Stephanie. You can feel her panic, her indecision, her confusion … she’s definitely and original character. Can’t wait for the next book! ‘High five’ to Janet Evanovichand her own style of writing
