High Five (Stephanie Plum, No. 5) by Janet Evanovich The Best Yet Uncle Fred was someone I saw at weddings and funerals and once in a while at Giovichinnis Meat Market, ordering a quarter pound of olive loaf. Eddie Such, the butcher, would have the olive loaf on the scale and Uncle Fred would say, Youve got the olive loaf on a piece of waxed paper. How much does that piece of waxed paper weigh? Youre not gonna charge me for that waxed paper, are you? I want some money off for the waxed paper. The speaker is Stephanie Plum, the glamorous if slightly ditzy bounty hunter from Trenton, New Jersey, and one of the most original creations in recent mystery fiction. In this fifth entry in Janet Evanovichs increasingly popular series, Stephanies problems are many and varied. Shes not making enough money picking up FTAs (Failures to Appear) for her cousin Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds; her red-hot love affair with Detective Joe Morelli has cooled off; and her giant extended family is no help at all. For instance, Uncle Fred the cheapskate has disappeared, leaving behind some suspicious photographs of body parts in garbage bags and links to some really dangerous people. When Stephanie turns to her friend and mentor, Ranger, for financial advice, he gets her involved in a gang of toughs doing instant evictions for landlords. (She complains to Ranger about the job and its dangers, prompting one of the hired thug to say, Man, you dont like to get shot. You dont like to get arrested. You dont know how to have fun at all.) Most of Stephanies charm, of course, comes from her attitude--a combination of the brazen bravado that turns a failed lingerie model into a bounty hunter in the first place and the normal fears of a person in over her head. Other Plums in paperback, by the numbers: One for the Money, Two for the Dough, Three to Get Deadly, and Four to Score. --Dick Adler Ok, besides looking for cheapskate Uncle Fred, trying to muscle over a dwarf who keeps escaping her, being broke since the FTA's are failing to appear on Uncle Vinnie's Desk, she begins odd jobs working for Ranger who also gives her two cars (one gets blown up and the other gets stolen), Ramirez gets out of jail and wants to show Steph "God", Steph and Lula hunt down a wife beater and I think he was their easiest catch of the book. Joe and Steph still can't manage to get together and maybe that's because of Ranger (who now we see his sexual attraction with Steph) though other than a nice smooch that's about all we get with Ranger...so far. The book was fast paced and a great read. I definately would recommend to anyone reading this series! I just have one question....Who did she put the little black dress on for? LOL!
