Two for the Dough

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough (USA 2007)

From the Publisher:
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is still learning the ropes at her cousin Vinnie's bail bond office, so when she sets out on the trail of Kenny Mancuso -- a suspiciously wealthy, working class Trenton boy who has just shot his best friend -- the stakes are higher than ever. That Mancuso is distantly related to vice cop Joe Morelli -- who is trying to beat Stephanie to the punch -- only makes the hunt more thrilling...

Taking pointers from her bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and using her pistol-packing Granda Mazur as a decoy, Stephanie is soon closing in on her mark. But Morelli and his libido are worthy foes. And a more sinister kind of enemy has made his first move... and his next move might be Stephanie's last.

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough (UK 1996)

From the Publisher:
Kenny Mancuso shot his childhood buddy Moogey Bues in the knee and then jumped bail. Now bounty hunter extraordinaire Stephanie Plum is on the case to track Kenny down.

Then someone finishes Moogey off, Kenny can't be found, twenty-four coffins are missing, and there's some ex-army heavy artillery roaming the streets. And Joe Morelli - the cop with more than a professional interest in her every move - is tailing Stephanie.

With a healthy disregard for the law, and an unhealthy dependence on marshmallow hot chocolate, Stephanie's a match for anyone - even Morelli. That is, until her eccentric grandmother goes AWOL and little pieces of corpses start to disappear...

Two for the Dough

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough (USA 1996)

From the Publisher:
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum debuted in Janet Evanovich's award-winning One for the Money. Here, she's back, packing a whole lot of attitude -- not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, and a .38 Smith & Wesson. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

Aided by her tough bounty hunter pal, Ranger, and her funeral-happy Grandma Mazur, Stephanie's soon staggering knee-deep in corpses, trying to shake Morelli -- and stirring up a very nasty enemy.

Two for the Dough

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough (UK 1996)

From the Publisher:
It takes balls to be a bounty hunter... and she doesn't care whose!
New Jersey vice cop Joe Morelli made a habit of screwing up Stephanie Plum's life. When he left her hand-cuffed naked to the curtain rod of her shower, she swore it was the last time she'd have anything to do with him.

Except now Morelli is back, suggesting a partnership, as his case overlaps with Stephanie's (who is working once again as a fugitive apprehension agent - aka bounty hunter extrodinaire). Both of them are tracking Kenny Mancuse, a no-hope scumbag who skipped bail after being arrested for shooting his best friend.

The hunt leads to Stiva's mortuary, and Stephanie enlists the help of her feisty grandmother, getting more than she asked for when Grandma starts packing a .45 magnum and creating funeral chaos. As Stephanie and Morelli close in on their man - and on each other - she begins to seriously reconsider her career choice, which involves spending a lot more time with dead people, not to mention Joe Morelli, than she'd accounted for in her life plan.

One For The Money marked the debut of crime fiction's cleverest and most original heroine in years. Furiously funny and unflaggingly suspenseful, Two for the Dough elevates Stephanie Plum from auspicious debutante to pop legend.

Two for the Dough

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough (USA 1996)

From the Publisher:
It's Stephanie Plum, New Jersey's "fugitive apprehension" agent (aka bounty hunter), introduced to the world by Janet Evanovich in the award-winning novel One for the Money.

Now Stephanie's back, armed with attitude -- not to mention stun guns, defense sprays, killer flashlights, and her trusty .38, Stephanie is after a new bail jumper, Kenny Mancuso, a boy from Trenton's burg. He's fresh out of the army, suspiciously wealthy, and he's just shot his best friend.

With her bounty hunter pal Ranger stepping in occasionally to advise her, Stephanie staggers kneedeep in corpses and caskets as she traipses through back streets, dark alleys, and funeral parlors.

And nobody knows funeral parlors better than Stephanie's irrepressible Grandma Mazur, a lady whose favorite pastime is grabbing a front-row seat at a neighborhood wake. So Stephanie uses Grandma as a cover to follow leads, but loses control when Grandma warms to the action, packing a cool pistol. Much to the family's chagrin, Stephanie and Granny may soon have the elusive Kenny in their sights.

Fast-talking, slow-handed vice cop Joe Morelli joins in the case, since the prey happens to be his young cousin. And if the assignment calls for an automobile stakeout for two with the woman who puts his libido in overdrive, Morelli's not one to object.

Low on expertise but learning fast, high on resilience, and despite the help she gets from friends and relatives, Stephanie eventually must face the danger alone when embalmed body parts begin to arrive on her doorstep and she's targeted for a nasty death by the most loathsome adversary she's ever encountered. Another case like this and she'll be a real pro.

Two for the Dough is irresistible fun and powerful suspense entertainment from an acclaimed author who is already a national star.

Janet Evanovich: Two for the Dough. Scribner's, ISBN: 0684196387 (January, 1996), 301 p., $22.95 (?).
