Buckle your seat belts. Number one New York Times
bestselling author, Janet Evanovich, is moving
into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane
misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder,
sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one
very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who?s along for the ride.
"Wild" Bill Barnaby's dropped off the face of the earth and big
sister Alex heads for Miami, Bill's last known sighting, on a
harrowing hunt to save her brother ... and maybe the world.Truth
is, Alex has been bailing her brother out of trouble since they
were kids.Not that Bill's a bad sort.More that he acts first and
thinks later.Unfortunately, this time around, Wild Bill will be
Dead Bill if Alex doesn't find him in time.
Alex blasts through the bars of South Beach and points her
search to Key West and Cuba, laying waste to Miami hit men, dodging
Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, and putting the pedal to
the metal with NASCAR driver Sam Hooker.
Engaged in a deadly race, Wild Bill's "borrowed" Hooker's
sixty-five foot Hatteras and sailed off into the sunset ... just
when Hooker has plans for the boat.Hooker figures he'll attach
himself to Alex and maybe run into Bill.Maybe Hooker can salvage
what's left of his vacation.And maybe Hooker'll get lucky in love
with Bill's sweetie pie sister.After all, Hooker is NASCAR Guy.And
NASCAR Guy is good at revving a woman?s engine.
The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker
into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a
sinister relic of the Cuban missile crises.Creative cussing and
sexual innuendo included.
