Stephanie Plum faces the toughest puzzle of her career in the twenty-fifth entry in Janet Evanovich’s #1 New York Times-bestselling series.

There’s nothing like a good deli, and the Red River Deli in Trenton is one of the best. World-famous for its pastrami, cole slaw, and for its disappearing managers. Over the last month, three have vanished from the face of the earth, and the only clue in each case is one shoe that’s been left behind. The police are baffled. Lula is convinced that it’s a case of alien abduction. Whatever it is, they’d better figure out what’s going on before they lose their new manager, Ms. Stephanie Plum.

Story Locale: New Jersey

Series Overview: Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum deals with weird criminals, nutty relatives, and crazy coworkers while keeping Trenton (relatively) free of crime.

AN ENTRY POINT FOR NEW READERS: The story is designed to be a perfect entry point for new readers who might be reluctant to join a long-standing series in the middle.

TWENTY-FIVE BOOKS MAKES FOR A LOT OF HISTORY: The novel will have callbacks to the history of the series that will entertain established fans and intrigue new readers.

THE ICONIC STEPHANIE PLUM SERIES CONTINUES: Turbo Twenty-Three debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and remained on the list for seven weeks. Tricky Twenty-Two snagged five #1 spots on the bestseller lists (including the New York Times hardcover, ebook, and combined; and the USA Today and Wall Street Journal combined list.)

A MAJOR PUBLISHING COMMITMENT: We own two more Stephanie Plum books and two of the Fox and O’Hare titles.

INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFUL SERIES: Very few series have sold as many copies, conquered the bestseller lists, and lasted for twenty-five books.

Janet Evanovich is the #1 bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, the Fox and O’Hare novels, the Knight and Moon novels, the Lizzy and Diesel series, the Alexandra Barnaby novels, and coauthor of a graphic novel, Troublemaker, with her daughter, Alex.

Praise For Evanovich And The Plum Series

“Chutzpah and sheer comic inventiveness…In addition to good fun, the Evanovich/Plum books serve as a nice antidote to everything in pop fiction today.”—The Washington Post

“No less than her plotting, Evanovich’s characterizations are models of screwball artistry. The intricate plot machinery of her comic capers is fueled by inventive twists.”—The New York Times

“Making trouble and winning hearts.”—USA Today
