Reasons to read Janet Evanovich’s bestselling novels: ‘Hilarious reading, with a gorgeous fistful of believable and only occasionally murderous eccentrics’ (Mail on Sunday); ‘Hooray for Janet Evanovich, who continues to enliven the literary crime scene’ (Sunday Telegraph); ‘For sheer uncomplicated fun, Stephanie Plum is hard to beat’ (Express on Sunday). Don’t miss TOP SECRET TWENTY-ONE!

Small guy. Big trouble.

Stephanie Plum has just one job lined up – tracking down Jimmy Poletti, car-dealer and all-round scumbag. Problem is he’s on the run, and silencing his former colleagues one bullet at a time. Plum is going to need bait to bring him in. Bait like Poletti’s ex-bookkeeper, Randy Briggs: a ninety-two-centimeter-tall magnet for bored housewives and rocket-propelled grenades.

To make things worse, there’s a one-eyed Russian assassin who’s out to get revenge on Ranger, Stephanie’s part-time temptation and full-time protector. Who is the one-eyed Russian and what’s his connection to the former special forces operative? Afraid that’s top secret.

'Evanovich's characters are eccentric and exaggerated, the violence often surreal and the plot dizzily speedy: but she produces as many laughs as anyone writing crime today'
