Description

It's dangerous to owe money to a mobster...
Stephanie Plum's no-good cousin and boss, Vinnie, has been kidnapped over gambling debts - and if there's no Vinnie, that means she's out of a job. But until the bond office closes, she's got bounty hunting to do: not least for an elderly bigamist and a drug dealer with a six-foot pet alligator.
Can they find Vinnie in time? Will Stephanie ever get engaged to her hot cop boyfriend Morelli? And exactly what kind of luck is she hoping for anyway?

Back cover copy

"Trenton"," New Jersey"," bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a "lucky" bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck...."BAD LUCK
Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced. GOOD LUCK
Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula have an advantage in finding Vinnie. BAD LUCK
Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Not even local stoner Walter "Moon Man" Dunphy is up to the task.GOOD LUCK
Between a bonds office yard sale, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.BAD LUCK
Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep her job as a bounty hunter--and keep hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.GOOD LUCK
Being a bounty hunter comes with its perks, namely Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky--the only question is...with whom?"Sizzling Sixteen."..so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!
