Synopsis

Stephanie Plum is thinking her career as a fugitive apprehension agent has run its course. She’s been shot at, spat at, cussed at, fire-bombed, mooned, and attacked by dogs. Time for a change, Stephanie thinks. Time to find the kind of job her mother can tell her friends about without making the sign of the cross.

So Stephanie Plum quits. Resigns. No looking back. No changing her mind. She wants something safe and normal. As it turns out, jobs that are safe and normal for most people aren’t necessarily safe and normal for Stephanie Plum.

Trouble follows her, and the kind of trouble she had at the bail bonds office can’t compare to the kind of trouble she finds herself facing now. Her past has come back to haunt her.

Caught between staying far away from the bounty hunter business and staying alive, Stephanie reexamines her life and the possibility that being a bounty hunter is the solution rather than the problem.

After disturbingly brief careers at the button factory, Kan Klean Dry Cleaners, and Cluck-in-a-Bucket, Stephanie takes an office position in security, working for Ranger, the sexiest, baddest bounty hunter and businessman on two continents.

Tempers and temperatures rise as competition ratchets up between the two men in her life---her on-again, off-again boyfriend, tough Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and her bad-ass boss, Ranger. Can Stephanie Plum take the heat? Can you?

故事梗概

斯蒂芬妮·普兰姆觉得自己的工作非常令人不安,她被人枪击过,殴打过,诅咒过,用火药炸过,羞辱过,还被狗咬过。她觉得再也不能这样过下去了,她应该去找一份可以让她妈妈大大方方和别人谈论的工作。





于是,斯蒂芬妮辞职了。辞职了,并且决不再回头。她需要平凡且安全的工作。但是一般人看来十分安全平凡的工作对于斯蒂芬妮·普兰姆来说却未必还能平凡、安全。



麻烦接踵而来,以前她做赏金猎人时遇到的麻烦与这些麻烦相比简直不值一提。她不由得开始怀念过去。




要么饿死,要么重新开始赏金猎人的工作。斯蒂芬妮再次审视自己的生活,发现赏金猎人的工作还是比眼前的这些麻烦更容易搞定。




因此,在纽扣制造厂、干洗店和快餐店工作之后,斯蒂芬妮选择了安全保卫工作,为性感带点邪恶的赏金猎人和商人兰哲工作。





她生命中的两个男人也在她的生活中越来越纠缠不清,一个是倔强的特伦顿警察乔·莫瑞里,两人分分合合、时好时坏,另一个就是她的恶棍老板兰哲。斯蒂芬妮能够解决好么?你能么?


 

Comment

Bestseller Evanovich may be performing the same tricks over and over at this point in the series (the bumbling sleuth act, sexual-tension jokes, etc.), but most readers will find this a pleasing romp.


评价

畅销书作者伊万诺维奇也许只是在这个系列中不停玩弄同样的把戏(装模作样的侦探动作,性爱的笑话等),但是如果大多数读者们都觉得它很有看头又有什么关系呢?
