Three To Get Deadly

by Janet Evanovich

‘Stephanie Plum’ series Book #3

Stephanie Plum, the brassy babe in the powder blue Buick is back and she’s having a bad hair day – for the whole month of January.

She’s been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier, Trenton’s most beloved citizen, arrested for carrying concealed, gone no-show for his court appearance.

And to make matters worse, she’s got Lula, a former hooker turned file clerk – now a wannabe bounty hunter – at her side, sticking like glue. Lula’s big and blonde and black and itching to get the chance to lock up a crook in the trunk of her car.

Morelli, the New Jersey vice cop with the slow-burning smile that undermines a girl’s strongest resolve is being polite. So what does this mean? Has he found a new love? Or is he manipulating Steph, using her in his police investigation, counting on her unmanageable curiosity and competitive Jersey attitude?

Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, including Ranger and Grandma Mazur, serching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with dead drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo has traded his ice-cream scoop for a vigilante gun.

Cursed with a disastrous new hair color and an increasing sense that it’s really time to get a new job, Stephanie spirals and tumbles through Three to Get Deadly with all the wisecracks and pace her fans have come to expect.

Review: Another awesome book! Grandma Mazur cracks me up, as well as a few other characters. I like how Ranger stays the mysterious character; it’s fun trying to guess about him. And Stephanie ~ I guess you could say the Italian in her shines through. And I really like her. She may not be brave, but she’s tenacious, and the thoughts in her head make me crack up just the same. And Joe … what I wouldn’t do to actually meet him (if he were real, of course.) Joyce – she got what she deserved. I just wish someone would actually smack Vinnie. He deserves it. I adore this series, and I plan on finishing it. The story never lags or drags, there’s always something goin on. Each character is vividly colourful. I couldn’t ask for better.
