Evanovich - One For The Money
One For The Money. Janet Evanovich. Scribner, 1994, & St Martin's Press. 2003. This is the first in a highly successful mystery series about Bounty Hunter Stephanie Plum. Out of work, behind in rent, with a pet Hamster named Rex to feed, Stephanie blackmails her way into a job at her cousin's bail bonding company. Stephanie is forced to learn on the job, and with wit and perseverance, and some luck, she persues her man. The book follows a main plot with it's twists and turns and unique characters, and intersects with subplots of Steph's family and other fugitives. Evanovich handles the balance of drama, action, and humor very well.
