Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovich is the #1 NY Times Bestseller this week!
After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin
Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment
that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing
trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living
facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency
appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man.
Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his
money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with
the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room
alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the
security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living,
Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon
goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working
side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack
The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to
pay the rent. Desperate for money—or maybe just desperate—Stephanie
accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor
Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is
notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she
bargained for this time around. Then again—a little food poisoning,
some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of
taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants
to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory. .
