Published to coincide with the release of Janet Evanovich's new Stephanie Plum mystery, Three Plums in One offers readers the trio of novels that launched the bestselling, award-winning Stephanie Plum phenomenon -- in a single, unabridged, hardbound edition. Introducing the madcap humor, colorful characters, and local flavor that have become Janet Evanovich's trademark, Three Plums in One invites readers to discover Stephanie Plum, America's favorite bounty hunter with attitude, at the beginning of her almost accidental career as an apprehension agent. In One for the Money, an out-of-work and out-of-money Stephanie blackmails her bondsman cousin into giving her a job tracking down bail jumpers. Knowing nothing of the trade, she tags along with a veteran bounty hunter, Ranger, learning the ropes as they go in search of a cop on the run from a murder one charge -- a cop who happens to be Stephanie's first love. Two for the Dough and Three to Get Deadly find Stephanie back on the mean streets of Trenton, New Jersey, in hot pursuit of her bounty, each time a little more savvy, a little bit tougher, and as outrageously funny as ever. Die-hard fans and first time readers alike will delight in discovering Janet Evanovich at her sparkling, suspenseful best in the three Plums that started it all.
