Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, where bounty hunter Stephanie Plum’s life is about to implode in Janet Evanovich’s wildest, hottest novel yet!
FIRST A STRANGER APPEARS
While chasing down the usual cast of miscreants and weirdos Stephanie discovers that a crazed woman is stalking her.
THEN THE STRANGER REVEALS HER SECRETS
The woman dresses in black, carries a 9mm Glock, and has a bad attitude and a mysterious connection to dark and dangerous Carlos Manoso …street name, Ranger.
NEXT, SOMEBODY DIES
The action turns deadly serious, and Stephanie goes from hunting skips to hunting a murderer.
SOON, THE CHASE IS ON
Ranger needs Stephanie for more reasons than he can say. And now, the two are working together to find a killer, rescue a missing child, and stop a lunatic from raising the body count. When Stephanie Plum and Ranger get too close for comfort, vice cop Joe Morelli (her on-again, off-again boyfriend) steps in.
Will the ticking clock stop at the stroke of twelve, or will a stranger in the wind find a way to stop Stephanie Plum…forever?
I mean, I love me some Ranger-Morelli drama, but if it didn’t come to a head in this one, will it ever? Morelli is a freaking saint. Considering all the grief he gets for his past, his girlfriend almost literally has a second boyfriend, and he just deals with it. Stephanie is not a good girlfriend. Besides that, I did enjoy this book and the increased Ranger time, allowing us to get to know him better. Any window into Ranger’s life is a good window; I just feel bad for Morelli.
Love the new funeral directors, Sally and Lula’s band, and Sally and Lula’s costumes. Gotta love some funeral madness and Stephanie’s ever-improving bounty hunter skills. Overall, Twelve Sharp was a bit average but still had enough high points to keep me interested.
