#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Something big is brewing in Trenton, N.J., and it could blow at any minute. Stephanie Plum might not be the world’s greatest bounty hunter, but she knows when she’s being played. Ken Globovic (aka Gobbles), hailed as the Supreme Exalted Zookeeper of the animal house known as Zeta fraternity, has been arrested for beating up the dean of students at Kiltman College. Gobbles has missed his court date and gone into hiding. People have seen him on campus, but no one will talk. Things just aren’t adding up, and Stephanie can’t shake the feeling that something funny is going on at the college—and it’s not just Zeta fraternity pranks. As much as people love Gobbles, they hate Doug Linken. When Linken is gunned down in his backyard it’s good riddance, and the list of possible murder suspects is long. The only people who care about finding Linken’s killer are Trenton cop Joe Morelli, who has been assigned the case, security expert Ranger, who was hired to protect Linken, and Stephanie, who has her eye on a cash prize and hopefully has some tricks up her sleeve.

SUMMARY Tricky Twenty-Two is the twenty-second, and most recent novel, in the Stephanie Plum book series, authored by Janet Evanovich. The books tell the story of a woman named Stephanie Plum who stumbles into a career as a bounty hunter. In the beginning, it takes her some time to get the hang of the job. However, in Tricky Twenty-Two she's developed relationships and has an interesting colleague named Lula that provide her with assistance in her work. The book starts out with her colleague, Lula and her trying to talk a woman down from a ledge. Joe Morelli, Stephanie's boyfriend (who's also a cop), shows up and manages to talk the woman down. It's after this that Stephanie goes back to his place where he, unfortunately, dumps her after they have sex. Stephanie leaves his place angry and returns to work the next day with signs of her stress on her face in the form of a zit. She receives two assignments; Ken "Gobbles" Globovic and Billy "Bacon" Brown. The book weaves the main case Stephanie is working around the other assignments she receives. One of the jobs Stephanie receives is from Ranger, assisting as security for a man named Doug Linken, and his wife, Monica when they attend the funeral of Linken's late colleague, Harry Getz. Later in the book, it's revealed that Doug and Harry are Zeta alumni. Gobbles is a Zeta fraternity brother and his story, and the fraternity house, are the main focus of the book. During the search for Gobbles and the investigation into the Zeta fraternity, Stephanie and Lula meet Dean Mintner and Professor Pooka. Pooka is an eccentric biology professor and Gobbles' faculty advisor, as well as the den father (they don't have a den mother because one night one of the brothers got the den mother pregnant) for the Zeta fraternity. Both Mintner and Pooka point Stephanie and Lula in the direction of Gobbles' girlfriend Julie. Stephanie suspects that Gobbles is bunking with Julie so her and Ranger go and check it out. There's no sign of him, and after checking out the apartment, the two decide to go for burgers. It's here that they spot Gobbles, however, he gets away. Throughout the book, the Zetas play pranks on Stephanie and Lula (beer balloons, graffiti and geese in their cars, etc., ). This further plays into Pooka's and Mintner's opinion of the Zeta fraternity. However, towards the end of the book, we learn that Mintner and Pooka are out to destroy the fraternity, and are, in fact, the villains. We learn this when Gobbles sends Julie to talk to Stephanie. Julie and Gobbles tell Stephanie that for homecoming the Zetas were planning on creating fireworks with stink bombs attached to them. Gobbles and his friend Becker were in charge of executing this plane. However, they soon found out that they needed help and decided to ask Pooka. It was at this point that things got out of hand. It's revealed that Pooka slowly started to lose his mind and developed a plan to attach tubes filled with fleas that were infected with the bubonic plague virus. When the fireworks went off at homecoming, the fleas would infect everyone on the campus and result in the death of everyone. In the process of working on another assignment, Stephanie is kidnapped by Pooka. Here, she finds Gobbles' friend, Becker, who tells her that he's been held captive for a while and was forced to call his parents to tell them he was okay. Stephanie manages to get free, she gets Becker free, and gets them both out of the house. When she's trying to figure out what to do, Ranger shows up and takes her and Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Re

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. Stephanie’s mom is encouraging Stephanie to dump them both and choose a former high school football star who’s just returned to town. Stephanie’s sidekick, Lula, is encouraging Stephanie to have a red-hot boudoir “bake-off.” And Grandma Bella, Morelli’s old-world grandmother, is encouraging Stephanie to move to a new state when she puts “the eye” on Stephanie. With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke.

Between the ages of twelve and fifteen, Martin Moran had a sexual relationship with an older man, a counselor he'd met at a Catholic boys' camp. Almost thirty years later, at the age of forty-two, he set out to find and face his abuser. The Tricky Part tells the story of this relationship and its complex effect on the man Moran became. He grew up in an exemplary Irish Catholic family-his great aunt was a cloistered nun; his father, a newspaper reporter. They might have lived in the Denver neighborhood of Virginia Vale, but they belonged to Christ the King, the church and school up the hill. And the lessons Martin absorbed, as a good Catholic boy, were filled with the fraught mysteries of the spirit and the flesh. Into that world came Bob-a Vietnam vet carving a ranch-camp out of the mountain wilderness, showing the boys under his care how to milk cows, mend barbed wire fence, and raft rivers. He drove a six-wheeled International Harvester truck; he could read the stars like a map. He also noticed a young boy who seemed a little unsure of himself, and he introduced that boy to the secret at the center of bodies. Told with startling candor and disarming humor, The Tricky Part carries us to the heart of a paradox-that what we think of as damage may be the very thing that gives rise to transformation, even grace.
