Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has
inherited a lucky bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is,
Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or
bad luck. . . .
Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling
debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being
held until the cash can be produced. Nobody else will pay to
get Vinnie back, leaving it up to Stephanie, office manager
Connie, and file clerk Lula to raise the money if they want
to save their jobs.
Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie,
Lula, and Connie have an advantage in finding Vinnie. If
they can rescue him, it will buy them some time to raise the
Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder
than raising $786,000. Vinnie's messing up Mooner's vibe,
running up pay-per-view porn charges in Ranger's apartment,
and making Stephanie question genetics.
Between a bonds office yard sale that has the entire Burg
turning out, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle
Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to
save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.
Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep
being a bounty hunter. In Trenton, this involves hunting
down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper
bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr.
The job of bounty hunter comes with perks in the guise of
Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and
dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all,
Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting
lucky---the only question is . . . with whom?
