Description

Discover where it all began--#1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich's first "snappily written, fast-paced, and witty" (USA TODAY) novel in the beloved Stephanie Plum series featuring a feisty and funny heroine who "comes roaring in like a blast of very fresh air" (The Washington Post).

Meet Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey.

She's a product of the "burg," a blue-collar pocket of Trenton where houses are attached and narrow, cars are American, windows are clean, and (God forbid you should be late) dinner is served at six.

Out of work and out of money, Stephanie blackmails her bail-bondsman cousin Vinnie into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but she figures her new pal, el-primo bounty hunter Ranger, can teach her what it takes to catch a crook. Her first assignment: nail Joe Morelli, a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one. Morelli's the inamorato who charmed Stephanie out of her virginity at age sixteen. There's still powerful chemistry between them, so the chase should be interesting...and could also be extremely dangerous.

Reviews

Senator William S. Cohen author of "Murder in the Senate" A fast-paced, gritty mystery....Janet Evanovich is a witty and clever voice in crime fiction.
Nora Roberts bestselling author of "Private Scandals" Stephanie Plum is destined to join ranks with Kinsey Millhone and Carlotta Carlyle. Janet Evanovich has crafted a heroine for today, tough, vulnerable, resourceful, and impulsive.
Judith Greber, a.k.a. Gillian Roberts author of the Amanda Pepper series With Stephanie Plum, New Jersey has struck gold. Janet Evanovich is a formidable writer who can turn even pollution into endearing local color -- and this is an outstanding debut. I can't wait for the sequel.
Jerome Doolittle author of "Headlock" Funny, unsentimental, tough and touching all at once. I hope we see a lot more of Stephanie Plum.
Deborah Crombie author of "All Shall Be Well" What a great read! I couldn't put it down. It's fast and funny...Stephanie Plum's attitude is as refreshing as a cold wind on a blistering New Jersey day. She's a believably vulnerable heroine who doesn't need to be rescued by a man, even one as sexy as Joe Morelli.
Marlys Millhiser author of "Death of the Office Witch" Finally, something fresh and different! Stephanie Plum is an original and "One for the Money" is a great series debut.
Dean James manager, Murder by the Book, Houston, and coauthor of "By a Woman's Hand" Evanovich has a smooth, funny style, spacing thrills and laughs for maximum effect. Mark Evanovich and Plum down on your must-read list!
Joan Hess author of the Claire Malloy and the Maggody series This is one gritty romp, to put it mildly. Stephanie Plum has not only a hilarious family and some very peculiar associates, but also a wicked sense of humor, a healthy libido, and the tenacity to tackle the most appalling thug to swagger down the streets of Trenton.
