Janet Evanovich könyvei a rukkolán
Janet Evanovich - Hárman a pácban
A népszerű fejvadász, Stephanie immáron harmadik kalandját izgulhatja végig a kicsit másfajta krimit kedvelő olvasó. Stephi ezúttal a gyermekek és felnőttek között is osztatlan népszerűségnek örvendő édességbolt-tulajdonos Mo bácsi nyomába ered. Az ügy egyre szövevényesebbé válik, miközben a burg lakói növekvő rosszalással figyelik hősnőnk ügyködését. A helyi kábítószer-kereskedők elszaporodó és egyre lehetetlenebb helyeken felbukkanó hullái azonban érdekes, új megvilágításba helyezik a kényes, s egyre életveszélyesebbé váló ügyet... Janet Evanovich regényeinek központi alakjával nem egy szuperhőst formázott meg, aki a szökött gyanúsítottakat precíz felderítőmunkával találja meg, majd kiméletlenül lecsap rájuk. Stephanie Plum nem rettenthetetlen detektív, nincs tökéletesen kimunkált teste és változatos fegyvertára. Sokkal inkább az érző szívű fiatal nő, akinek csöppet sem hétköznapi foglalkozása mellett a magánéletének alakulását is figyelemmel követhetjük, végigizgulhatjuk. A világot néha gyerekszemmel néző Stephanie azonban bátran szembenéz munkája és hétköznapjai kihívásaival, és bár ő is esendő, végül mindig legyűri az akadályokat. És ez által válik korunk hősnőjévé
Janet Evanovich - Kétesélyes játszma
Janet Evanovich regényeinek hősnője, az olasz-magyar származású Stephanie Plum, fejvadász, akit azért fizetnek, hogy óvadék ellenében szabadlábon levő eltűnt vádlottakat találjon meg, és bevigye a rendőrségre. Ez eddig elég szokványosan hangzik, mégis az amerikai írónő regényei a hasonló témájú könyvek között a tengerentúli és internetes eladási listák élén állnak. A siker titka az írónő egyéni, humoros stílusa, mely sok helyen emlékeztet a közkedvelt magyar írónő, Vavyan Fable hangvételére. A regényben a hangsúly soha nem a kinyomozandó bűnügyön van, hanem azon, ahogy a kezdő és esetlen, ámde csinos, okos és öntudatos Stephanie próbálja felderíteni az ügyet, miközben éli mindennapi életét. Sajátos kapcsolata családjával és a jóképű, tehetséges Joe Morelli rendőrnyomozóval számos humoros helyzet forrása. Könnyed hangvétele miatt ideális olvasmány annak, aki egy kis kikapcsolódásra vágyik, és ha valaki egyszer belemerül Stephanie Plum kalandjaiba, képtelen lesz letenni a könyvet.
Janet Evanovich - A szingli fejvadász 1.
Stephanie Plum közel harminc (kilóban sajnos távol), elvált, munkanélküli, kocsi nélküli, pasi nélküli. Mióta a fejébe vette, hogy beáll fejvadásznak, mindig történik vele valami. Hol kocsik robbannak körülötte, hol szatír tör rá, hol megskalpolnak valakit, és közben valahogy mintha minden Joe Morelli körül forogna. Aki hatévesen becsalta a garázsba, hogy vonatozzon vele, jó tíz év múlva pedig elvette a "csokis fánkját". És ha mindez még nem lenne elég, ott az anyja, aki folyton újra akarja házasítani, meg persze Mazur nagyi, akinek mindenről három dolog jut az eszébe: a szex, a szex és a szex. Janet Evanovich krimifolyama a világ első számú szórakoztató női sorozata. Minden kötete már néhány nappal a megjelenése után vezeti az összes sikerlistát, sokmilliós rajongótábora jobban várja, mint a Szex és New York vagy a Maffiózók újabb részét.
Janet Evanovich - Dangerous Minds
The irrepressibly charming duo of Emerson Knight and Riley Moon returns in another gripping mystery by #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich. Buddhist monk Wayan Bagus lost his island of solitude and wants to get it back. The island was about two hundred miles northeast of Samoa. It had a mountain, beaches, a rain forest, and a volcano. And now it’s gone. Poof! Vanished without a trace. Brilliant and boyishly charming Emerson Knight likes nothing better than solving an unsolvable, improbable mystery. And finding a missing island is better than Christmas morning in the Knight household. When clues lead to a dark and sinister secret that is being guarded by the National Park Service, Emerson will need to assemble a crack team for help. Since a crack team isn’t available, he enlists Riley Moon and his cousin Vernon. Riley Moon has a Harvard business degree and can shoot the eyes out of a grasshopper at fifty feet, but she can’t figure out how to escape the vortex of Emerson Knight’s odd life. Vernon has been Emerson’s loyal and enthusiastic partner in crime since childhood. He now lives in an RV behind Emerson’s house. Together, this ragtag, mismatched trio will embark on a worldwide investigation that will expose a conspiracy one hundred years in the making.
Janet Evanovich - Phoef Sutton - Curious Minds
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Janet Evanovich, bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of mysteries featuring Emerson Knight and Riley Moon, a dynamic duo with instant and undeniable chemistry. Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight. What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.
Janet Evanovich - Wicked Charms
Lizzy and Diesel return once again in an all-new adventure in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Janet Evanovich and her co-author, Phoef Sutton! Murdered and mummified more than ninety years ago, bootlegger Collier “Peg Leg” Dazzle once found and re-hid a famous pirate’s treasure somewhere along the coast of New England. A vast collection of gold and silver coins and precious gems, the bounty also contains the Stone of Avarice — the very item reluctant treasure seeker, Lizzy Tucker, and her partner, Diesel, have been enlisted to find. While Lizzy would just like to live a quiet, semi-normal life, Diesel is all about the hunt. And this hunt is going to require a genuine treasure map and a ship worthy of sailing the seven seas . . . or at least getting them from Salem Harbor to Maine. Greed is eternal and insatiable, and Lizzy and Diesel aren’t the only ones searching for the lost pirate’s chest. There are people who have dedicated their entire lives to finding it, and are willing to commit murder or make a deal with the devil, just to hold the fortune in their hands. One of those people may even be Wulf, Diesel’s deceptively charming and enigmatic cousin. Wulf desires the Stone of Avarice. He also desires Lizzy. It’s hard to say how far he’s willing to go to gain either one. It’s a swashbuckling adventure full of raiders, monkeys, minions, and mayhem. Lizzy and Diesel are going to have to do everything they can to keep their heads above water and hope they are living a charmed life.
Janet Evanovich - A szerelem rögös útján
Amikor a WZZZ rádióállomás elragadó, bolondos "Kutyahölgye" jelentkezett, hogy elvállalná az ideiglenesen megüresedett közlekedési tudósítói állást, Steve Crow mindent megpróbált, hogy lerázza. Talán előre sejtette, hogy képtelen lesz ellenállni huncut bájának, ha órákat kell vele töltenie édeskettesben a szűk közvetítőkocsiban. Mindig is az aszfaltba simuló sportkocsikért és a magas sarkú cipőn tipegő nőkért rajongott, de egycsapásra megváltozott az ízlése, amikor beleszeretett ebbe a szuverén egyéniségbe, aki merő véletlenségből bűnözőket leplez le, imádja az öregeket meg a kutyákat, és észbontóan sok munkát vállal magára. Miután beleszeretett Daisybe, Steve élete fenekestűl felfordult. Amikor saját készítésű mandulás csókkal udvarolta körül Daisyt és olyan szenvedélyt tanúsított, amiről még csak nem is álmodott a lány, úgy olvadt szét ellenállása, mint vaj a forró pattogatott kukoricán. Steve-vel jobban lehetett játszani, mint egy egész babaházzál, de vajon meg meri-e játszani végül a legnagyobb tétet: teljes függetlenségét?

Für Stephanie Plum – Kautionsjägerin und Chaosmagnet – ist das Leben wie ein Doughnut: Erst beim Reinbeißen weiß man, was drin steckt.

Janet Evanovich - A szingli fejvadász 2.
Stephanie Plum, a világ legkedveltebb fejvadásznője nem akármilyen megbízatást kap. Kenny Mancusót kell begyűjtenie, a gyilkost, aki mellesleg Joe Morelli unokatestvére. És mint mindig, Stephanie körül most is izzik a levegő. Anyja változatlanul férjhez akarja adni, és továbbra is az ő pici lányaként kezeli, Morelli változatlanul (sőt fokozódóan!) izgató és pofátlan. Felbukkan még egy temetkezési vállalkozó, egy rakomány ellopott koporsó, némi halálos fenyegetés, és az elengedhetetlen kocsimizéria (ezúttal lopják, nem robbantják). Mindennek a tetejében ott van Stephanie nyakán Mazur nagyi is, aki most éppen temetésbuzi lett, unalmában ravatalozókba cipeli, ahonnan végül kisöpri a népharag, míg végül is felcsap önjelölt nyomozónak. A szingli fejvadász minden idők talán legsikeresebb női sorozata. Janet Evanovich, a rajongva imádott szerző, Stephanie Plum és Joe Morelli kettősében egy klasszikus se veled, se nélküled kapcsolatot írt meg. Egy harmincas, imádni valóan szerencsétlen nő, és „A PASAS”, akivel (majdnem) mindig történik valami (néha azért ténylegesen is), hol szeretkeznek, hol majdnem meghalnak, máskor csak pizzáznak és tévéznek, de legesleginkább egymást húzzák, de azt rutinosan és kőkeményen. Vajon összejön Stephanie Morellivel? Elkapja Kenny Mancusót? És vajon totál porba dönti-e New Jerseyt Mazur nagyi, vagy ezt meghagyja egy későbbi részre?

Janet Evanovich - Explosive Eighteen
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is set to blow sky high when international murder hits dangerously close to home, in this dynamite novel by Janet Evanovich. Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she's flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a rag-tag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photo--Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she'll need to watch her back. Over at the Bail Bonds Agency things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie's temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie's wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie's apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii? Morelli, Trenton's hottest cop, isn't talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn't talking about Hawaii. And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It's complicated.
Janet Evanovich - Ten Big Ones
She's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. He mother's convinced she'll end up dead...or worse, without a man. She's Stephanie Plum and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thought it would sound good to put it that way...) It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum...except that she becomes the target of a gang. And the target of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger out of town (and Stephanie on the outs with vice cop Morelli), she finds herself alone, with a decision to make: how to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as the Junkman. There's only one safe place, and it has Ranger's name all over it-if she can find it. And if the Junkman doesn't find her first. With Lula riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock in her most suspenseful novel yet. Ten Big Ones is page-turning entertainment and Janet Evanovich is the best there is.
Janet Evanovich - To The Nines
Stephanie Plum's got rent to pay, people shooting at her, and psychos wanting her dead every day of the week (much to the dismay of her mother, her family, the men in her life, the guy who slices meat at the deli...oh, the list goes on). An ordinary person would cave under the pressure. But hey, she's from Jersey. Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. In To The Nines, her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an immigrant who becomes an illegal alien by violating his Visa and extending his stay in the United States. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. But what she uncovers is far more sinister than anyone imagines and leads to a group of killers who give new meaning to the word "hunter..." In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.

High fives all around! The New York Times bestselling author of FOUR TO SCORE puts Stephanie Plum, America's favorite bounty hunter, back behind the wheel in her fifth high-octane thriller. What's Stephanie up to now? * Her Uncle Fred has disappeared. * A body turns up in a garbage bag. * She's got a nasty bookie following her around town. * Grandma Mazur has her hands on the stun gun. * Stephanie can't keep a car for more than forty-eight hours. * Two men are trying to get her into bed. * She has nothing to wear to the Mafia wedding. * And there's an angry little man (don't call him a dwarf!) who won't leave her apartment. Bail jumping in Trenton is down to small potatoes. Stephanie's only open case is a small bond for a small violation, committed by a small person who raises Stephanie's frustration level in big ways. So short of money and long on bills, Stephanie comes up with a plan --diversify! Signing on as an intern with entrepreneurial Super Bounty Hunter Ranger, Stephanie ventures into Ranger's mostly morally correct and marginally legal operations. None of this makes vice cop Joe Morelli a happy man. The cop in him can't help but wonder as to the source of Stephanie's expensive new cars. And the rest of him, the man who's been friend and lover to Stephanie, can't help but wonder if there's more to the partnership than meets the eye. The internship is downgraded to second priority when Uncle Fred goes missing. Even though Grandma Mazur is sure he was abducted by aliens, Stephanie sets out to look for Fred. He's a perfectly average senior citizen, and he's disappeared without a trace while running errands. He's left his ten-year-old Pontiac station wagon locked up nice and neat in the Grand Union parking lot, the cleaning is carefully arranged on the back seat, and his wife is at home, waiting for him to return with the bread and the milk and the olive loaf bologna. Locked in the top drawer of his desk are photos of a body, dismembered and stuffed into a garbage bag. And locked away in the computer files of a another average citizen are the clues that will lead Stephanie to Fred. Criminally original and stone brilliant, this Intermediate Bounty Hunting Survival Manual is blockbuster entertainment.

With delectable characters and non-stop thrills that have made Janet Evanovich a household name, Wicked Appetite will leave you hungry for more.
Janet Evanovich - Wicked Business
Whether it’s monkey business, funny business, or getting down to business, Janet Evanovich’s Lizzy and Diesel series proves that there’s no business like Wicked Business. Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences. On their way they’ll leave behind a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and general mayhem. Diesel’s black sheep cousin, Gerwulf Grimoire, also wants the Stone. His motives are far from pure, and what he plans on doing with the treasure, no one knows . . . but Lizzy Tucker fears she’s in his crosshairs. Never far and always watching, Grimoire has a growing, vested interest in the cupcake-baker-turned-finder-of-lost-things. As does another dangerous and dark opponent in the hunt—a devotee of lawlessness and chaos, known only as Anarchy. Treasures will be sought, and the power of lust will be unmistakable as Lizzy and Diesel attempt to stay ahead of Anarchy, Grimoire, and his medieval minion, Hatchet, in this ancient game of twisted riddles and high-stakes hide-and-seek
