Twelve Sharp

Front Cover
Random House Large Print, 2006 - Fiction - 413 pages
In the twelfth in the Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, series--Plum is tracking a killer who has kidnapped the daughter of her mentor and sometimes lover, Ranger. Lorelei King once again displays her impeccable versatility as she portrays a dozen characters, not only sexy, savvy 30-year-old Plum, but also Plum's two loves--mysterious Ranger and tough Vice cop Joe Morelli--as well as the terrified kidnapped child. Even though the book has a tense, dark plot, King shines in its comic moments, which feature Plum's sassy, unpredictable partner, Lula, as well as her swinger Grandma, impatient mother, and grumpy father. In a big audiobook bonus, King interviews the author on life, love, work habits, and Plum's muddled relationships with men. M.T.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.

User Review  - CSDaley - LibraryThing

It wasn't terrible. There were some laugh out loud moments but the series is barely a shell of the funny it used to be. I only read this because I enjoyed The Heist and thought maybe I could get back into the series. It will probably be a long time before I read another. Read full review
