Two for the Dough
The sassiest bounty hunter in detective fiction returns in TWO FOR THE DOUGH. Stephanie Plum is hot on the trail of a band of gunrunners and a killer who happens to be related to Stephanie's nemesis, Trenton vice-cop, Joe Morelli. Joe and Stephanie share a jaded past, a chemically explosive present and an uncertain future.
Stephanie's arsenal and aim have improved, but she needs all the help she can get in apprehending Kenny Mancuso, a local boy gone bad. She must rely on the ever mysterious and oh, so dangerous Ranger. Lulu, the ex-hooker whose hair and wardrobe are as atrocious as her taste in men, has become a file clerk in Cousin Vinnie's bail bond company. She decides that bounty hunting looks a lot more exciting than alphabetizing, and she jumps in to help when Stephanie and Grandma Mazur find themselves locked in the basement of the local funeral home at the mercy of a homicidal killer.
Evanovich delivers a ribald, hilarious, action-packed detective story that has a growing number of fans laughing and turning pages in anticipation.
