"We took the stairs for fear the elevator might be too slow, and we barreled out the front door and speed-walked down the block, before the police could show up and haul me off to the clink.…‘I swear, I thought you were gonna burst into flames when you saw that picture of Dickhead and Joyce,’ Lula said. ‘It was like you had those glowing demon eyes you see in horror movies. I thought your head was gonna rotate.’
‘Yeah, but then a calm came over me,’ I said.…
‘The calm must have come while you were squeezing his neck and banging his head against the floor,’ Connie said.
I blew out a sigh. ‘Yep. That was about the time.’ "
—from Lean Mean Thirteen
America’s funniest fugitive apprehension agent is back!
If you’re ready for zany action and helpless laughter, don’t miss Janet Evanovich’s Lean Mean Thirteen, as old flames, new secrets and hidden agendas send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most outrageous adventure yet—there’s no doubt that Plum & Co. put the fun in dysfunctional!
Once upon a time, Stephanie was married to Dickie Orr…for about 15 minutes, until she caught him cheating on her with arch-nemesis Joyce Barnhardt. She never wanted to see either of them again. But when tall, dark and sexy super-bounty hunter Ranger asks her to meet with Dickie, she can’t refuse—her knees are too weak. Ranger thinks Dickie’s doing something shady, and he is. He’s also back to doing Joyce Barnhardt. This last tidbit sends Stephanie over the edge, trying her very best to inflict bodily harm on her sleazy ex—in front of many witnesses. So when Dickie turns up missing, guess who’s the prime suspect! Now, besides dealing with exploding cars, violent bail jumpers and her slightly eccentric (i.e., nuts) family, Steph must find Dickie, figure out her feelings for Ranger and hot cop Joe Morelli, and, oh yeah—stay alive!

It was an enjoyable, funny read. These books always make me laugh out loud. I really enjoy the whole Plum series and this was no exception! Can't wait for the next one to come out!

I was very disappointed in this book. As I was trying to get into the book I couldn't help but think..."am I really this desperate for something to do" so I did dishes instead.

There is no funnier group of people in any book I have ever read! The best and worst of all families finds its way onto every page! These people make me laugh out loud! So much that when I'm laughing while reading a Stephanie Plum novel, my husband looks at me like I'm crazy...I can not wait for #14! Stephanie, you go girl!!!!!!
Reviewer: Kelly M
A good read with mystery, suspense and humor. Evanovich can write a good story with laugh out loud character conversation.
