Janet Evanovich, bestselling author of One for the Money, Two for the Dough, and Three to Get Deadly, scores big with Four to Score, her most thrilling Stephanie Plum adventure yet. Working for her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, Stephanie is hot on the trail of revenge-seeking waitress Maxine Nowicki, whose crimes include bail jumping, theft, and extortion. Someone is terrifying Maxine’s friends, and those who have seen her are turning up dead. Also on the hunt for Maxine is Joyce Barnhardt, Stephanie’s archenemy and rival bounty hunter. Stephanie’s attitude never wavers – even when aided by Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker and wannabe bounty hunter Lula, and transvestite rock musician Sally Sweet – and even when Stephanie makes an enemy whose deadly tactics escalate from threatening messages to firebombs. All of this pales in comparison, though, with an even greater danger Stephanie faces, when, homeless and broke, she and her hamster Rex move in with vice cop Joe Morelli.
As with all Stephanie Plum books this one is full of adventure, humor and sticky situations. Stephanie has her car burned, her apartment blown up all by a crazy gay person attacking her thinking she is stealing their boyfriend. Meanwhile things heat up between her and Vice Cop Joe Morelli, which causes the assumption that they are settling down much to Stephanie and Joe’s assurance that nothing is going on. Stephanie, Lulu and Transvestite Sally are hot to find the FTA Maxine Nowicki who would be better off in jail than on the loose. A great read as always!
