Welcome to Trenton, New Jersey, home to wiseguys, average Joes, and Stephanie Plum, who sports a big attitude and even bigger money problems (since losing her job as a lingerie buyer for a department store). Stephanie needs cash--fast--but times are tough, and soon she's forced to turn to the last resort of the truly desperate: family.
Stephanie lands a gig at her sleazy cousin Vinnie's bail bonding company. She's got no experience. But that doesn't matter.nbsp;Neither does the fact that the bail jumper in question is local vice cop Joe Morelli. From the time he first looked up her dress to the time he first got into her pants to the time Steph hit him with her father's Buick, M-o-r-e-l-l-i has spelled t-r-o-u-b-l-e. And now the hot guy is in hot water--wanted for murder.
Abject poverty is a great motivator for learning new skills, but being trained in the school of hard knocks by people like psycho prizefighter Benito Ramirez isn't. Still, if Stephanie can nab Morelli in a week, she'll make a cool ten grand. All she has to do is become an expert bounty hunter overnight--and keep herself from getting killed before she gets her man.
Janet Evanovich launches what will prove to be a wildly successful and long-running series with this charming and mischievous novel introducing Stephanie Plum. A bounty hunter eking out a living and a love life in New Jersey, Stephanie's life involves plenty of bad guys--this time a boxer with a nasty reputation. But she also has some good colleagues and one heck of an entertaining job. Readers will find themselves whisked along with Stephanie's adventures in ONE FOR THE MONEY, and they'll be more than ready for the next installment, TWO FOR THE DOUGH.
