St. Martins Press | August 2, 2000 | Hardcover

Hot Six is rated 5 out of 5 by 4.
Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum and Trenton vice cop Joe Morelli join forces to find the madman killer who shot and barbecued the youngest son of international black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos.

Carlos Manoso, street name Ranger, is caught on video just minutes before the crime occurs. He''s at the scene, he''s with the victim, and he''s the number-one suspect. Ranger is former special forces turned soldier of fortune. He has a blue-chip stock portfolio and no known address. He moves in mysterious circles. He''s Stephanie''s mentor--the man who taught her everything she knows about fugitive apprehension. And he''s more than her friend.

Now he''s the hunted and Stephanie''s the hunter, and it''s time for her to test her skills against the master. But if she does catch him...what then? Can she bring herself to turn him in?

Plus there are other things keeping Stephanie awake at night. Her maternal grandmother has set up housekeeping in Stephanie''s apartment, a homicidal maniac has selected Stephanie as his next victim, her love life is in the toilet, she''s adopted a dog with an eating disorder, and she can''t button the top snap on her Levi''s.

Experience the world of Plum--in Janet Evanovich''s new thriller. It''s surreal, it''s frenetic, it''s incendiary. Hot Six. It''s the best yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Hot! This is by far the best Stephanie Plum novel yet. Just when I didn't think that Five could be matched, Six passed it easily. The chemistry between Ranger and Steph is enough to send me over the edge. More laughs in this book than you can imagine. If you haven't read this series by Janet Evanovich, start now...you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOT HOT HOT!!!! I was only introduced to Stephanie Plum this summer and practically flew through all six of her books in no time at all. They were totally addictive. Stephanie Plum is lots of fun, hilarious, easy to relate to and all that chemistry with the various men in her life makes these books even more intriguing. Evanovich has quickly become one of my favourite authors and I am eagerly awaiting her 7th book. Read each and every one of her books and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. I've even turned a few of my friends into Evanovich addicts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Fun! "High Five" left us wanting more and "Hot Six" does too! This time Ranger's in trouble and Stephanie and Morelli are both on the case albeit from different angles. Evanovich delivers the mix of danger, humour, and lust we've come to expect from Stephanie and a wacky cast of villians, friends, and family. You can't go wrong with this author or these characters. Make sure you read the whole series!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic as always Evanovich is one of those rare writers who never disappoints. Even the cliche one-girl-wanted-by-two-guys dynamic gets new life in her Plum books. "Hot Six" has all the humour and intrigue her fans love, as well as old favourites like Lula and Grandma Mazur. All in all, it's a great book. An easy, enjoyable read as always, I finished it in no time and am eagerly awaiting book Seven. Evanovich is a great author who has wonderful interaction with her fans and has truly brought a gem into the mystery genre.

Read from the Book

Chapter One Five months later ... Carol Zabo was standing on the outermost guardrail on the bridge spanning the Delaware between Trenton, New Jersey, and Morrisville, Pennsylvania. She was holding a regulation-size yellow fire brick in the palm of her right hand, with about four feet of clothesline stretched between the brick and her ankle. On the side of the bridge in big letters was the slogan "Trenton Makes and the World Takes." And Carol was apparently tired of the world taking whatever it was she was making, because she was getting ready to jump into the Delaware and let the brick do its work. I was standing about ten feet from Carol, trying to talk her off the guardrail. Cars were rolling past us, some slowing up to gawk, and some cutting in and out of the gawkers, giving Carol the finger because she was disturbing the flow. "Listen, Carol," I said, "it''s eight-thirty in the morning, and it''s starting to snow. I''m freezing my ass off. Make up your mind about jumping, because I have to tinkle, and I need a cup of coffee." Truth is, I didn''t for a minute think she''d jump. For one thing, she was wearing a four-hundred-dollar jacket from Wilson Leather. You just don''t jump off a bridge in a four-hundred-dollar jacket. It isn''t done. The jacket would get ruined. Carol was from the Chambersburg section of Trenton, just like me, and in the Burg you gave the jacket to your sister, then you jumped off the bridge. "Hey, you listen, Stephanie Plum," Carol said, teeth chatte

About the Author

Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including One for the Money and Sizzling Sixteen, and the Diesel & Tucker series, including Wicked Appetite. Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn’t have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters. As she puts it, “When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency.” But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After 12 romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet’s favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles. She and her husband live in New Hampshire, in house with a view of the Connecticut River Valley.

From Our Editors

 

Award-winning crime writer Janet Evanovich offers readers another gripping Stephanie Plum adventure in Hot Six. Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum joins forces with Trenton vice cop Joe Morelli to find the mad killer behind the murder of international black-market arms dealer Alexander Ramos’ youngest son. There’s just one problem: Stephanie’s mentor and lover is the number one suspect. To top that off, her grandmother has just moved in with her, a homicidal maniac has targeted her as his next victim, her love life is falling apart and she’s just adopted a dog with an eating disorder. Packed with as much humour as there is suspense, Evanovich does it again, proving why her novels consistently dwell on the best-seller’s list, winning her several awards and critical acclaim the world over.
