Ten Big Ones

- Janet Evanovich


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.



enjoyable/easy to read:

The series is back on top – Ten Big Ones was great! The was plenty of excellent Ranger-Morelli drama/tension and, finally, some self-sufficiency from Stephanie. The stakes were a lot higher this time, and the danger moved up to a new level.

In the last couple of books, Stephanie has been having much better luck with her FTAs, and the danger is a bit more personal. It was nice to see her try to take care of herself instead of just relying on Ranger or Morelli to take care of things for her. She may have used their assets, but she was trying to sort things out herself.

It was also great to have Sally back! He’s always an interesting character to have around to liven things up. Lula and Connie have been getting into the action lately, and the Plum family drama keeps getting bigger and better.

Happy to keep reading, bring on #11.
