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…. BAD LUCK GOOD LUCK BAD LUCK GOOD LUCK BAD LUCK GOOD LUCK Sizzling Sixteen…so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!
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.
Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula have an advantage in finding Vinnie.
Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Not even local stoner Walter “Moon Man” Dunphy is up to the task.
Between a bonds office yard sale, 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 her job as a bounty hunter—and keep hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.
Being a bounty hunter comes with its perks, namely 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?

As Stephanie Plum points out right at the beginning of SIZZLING SIXTEEN, her sixteenth adventure penned by Janet Evanovich, inheriting an ambiguously "lucky" bottle is better than getting handed down some false teeth! But what exactly she's supposed to do with the red, beer-bottle shaped thing that her uncle left for her in his will, she's not really sure...except maybe sell it. With the boss-man of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds in major debt trouble with gangster Bobby Sunflower, Stephanie and her fellow co-workers Connie and Lula have to come up with $786,000 if they want to keep their jobs. So how much is that bottle really worth? Juggling money-hungry mobsters, investment scams, and a handful of colorful, shady Trenton, NJ characters--plus a couple of steamy distractions (a sexy cop and a bad boy)--Stephanie's got her bounty hunter work cut out for her for sure.
