Stephanie Plum strikes
again. This time her assignment for bail enforcement is Eddie DeChooch.
Eddie is a semi-retired mob guy who has just gotten arrested for contraband
cigarettes. Eddie is also dating Stephanie's flirty Grandmother Mazur.
Things soon begin to
intensify. Eddie easily eludes capture, but leaves behind the bullet-riddled
body of Loretta Ricci in his storage shed for Stephanie to find. Stephanie's
car gets smashed, which is nothing new and Vinnie, her slimy boss, loans
her a Harley to ride, much to the delight of Stephanie and Grandma Mazur.
Somehow Stephanie's friends Mooner and Dougie get involved, and Dougie
has disappeared. Through it all is the sexual tension between Stephanie
and Joe, her on-again, off-again policeman boyfriend, and Ranger, the
mysterious bad-boy bail enforcement agent.
Books one through six
were great fun! Seven Up does not disappoint. Each time Ms. Evanovich
releases a new book it is cause for celebration.
