Publisher's Write-Up

Cuddly Mo Bedemier, Trenton's favourite ice-cream seller, has gone missing. Stephanie Plum, carbohydrates' biggest fan, needs to track him down. But it's not raspberry ripple she's after: Mo's jumped bail, and Stephanie's job is bounty-hunting. Nobody can believe Mo would do anything wrong.

But Stephanie - with the help of big blonde Lula, good cop/bad cop Joe Morelli and fitness-freak Ranger - soon discovers that Mo has more than candy in his basement. Uncovering the truth about Mo is one thing, but coping with dead drug dealers, a man-sized chicken and a seriously bright hair colour is pushing Stephanie to the edge. And when someone holds her hamster to ransom, things look like they're getting deadly.

'Evanovich's series of New Jersey comedy thrillers are among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction ... Three to Get Deadly has all the easy class and wit that you expect to find in the best American TV comedy, but too rarely find in modern fiction.'


Evanovich's comic surrealism is in the same league as Carl Hiaasen's.'

Marcel Berlins in The Times

'Stephanie Plum is back in ass-kicking form... the pace is car-chase fast, the dialogue sharp and Stephanie - addicted to junk food and red lipstick, and hopeless with men - is utterly delightful.'

It shows that crime does not pay when the only work available for a bounty hunter is to bring in everyone's favourite ice cream vendor, and it all gets a bit out of hand. People keep turning up dead, and the car situation does not improve.
