From the Publisher:
Stephanie Plum, the brassy babe in the powder blue Buick is back and she's having a bad hair day -- for the whole month of January.
She's been given the unpopular task of finding Mo Bedemier, Trenton's most beloved citizen, arrested for carrying concealed, gone no-show for his court appearance.
And to make matters worse, she's got Lula, a former hooker turned file clerk -- now a wannabe bounty hunter -- at her side, sticking like glue. Lula's big and blonde and black and itching to get the chance to lock up a crook in the trunk of her car.
Morelli, the New Jersey vice cop with the slow-burning smile that undermines a girl's strongest resolve is being polite. So what does this mean? Has he found a new love? Or is he manipulating Steph, using her in his police investigation, counting on her unmanageable curiosity and competitive Jersey attitude?
Once again, the entire One for the Money crew is in action, including Ranger and Grandma Mazur, searching for Mo, tripping down a trail littered with dead drug dealers, leading Stephanie to suspect Mo has traded his ice-cream scoop for a vigilante gun.
Cursed with a disastrous new hair color and an increasing sense that it's really time to get a new job, Stephanie spirals and tumbles through Three to Get Deadly with all the wisecracks and pace her fans have come to expect.

"Here's Stephanie Plum, a bail-bond agent from Trenton, NJ, clumping onto the PI scene in Doc Martens, with a sassy lip that would stop Philip Marlowe. Her equipment includes button-fly Levi's, a .38 and a sprightly Italian granny who loves mysteries. Stephanie crackles with '90s 'tude." "Great plots, great humor, fabulous sexual tension, and unforgettable characters. No one beats Janet Evanovich!" - Susan E. Phillips New York Times Book Review
"As more dealers with connections to Uncle Mo are knocked off, Stephanie becomes so rattled that she dyes her hair orange. But even this fashion blunder looks good on the adorable klutz, whose manic excesses are an indelible part of her charm." - Marilyn Stasio 02/16/1997 Mystery Review
"The dialogue is snappy, the action is swift and the plot is sound. With this Plum, Evanovich has got the whole pie!" Spring 1997 "Stephanie Plum is destined to join ranks with Kinsey Millhone and Carlotta Carlyle. Janet Evanovich has crafted a heroine for today, tough, vulnerable, resourceful, and impulsive." - Nora Roberts
