New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum struggles to make ends meet while coping with a missing Uncle Fred, homicidal rapist and stalker Benito Ramirez, amorous vice cop Joe Morelli, and would-be lover Ranger.

McMillan Palgrave
Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum throws caution to the wind and follows in the entrepreneurial bootsteps of Super Bounty Hunter, Ranger, engaging in morally correct and marginally legal enterprises. So, a scumball blows himself to smithereens on her first day of policing a crack house and the sheik she was chauffeuring stole the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect! Anyway, Stephanie has other things on her mind. Her mother wants her to find Uncle Fred who's missing after arguing with his garbage company; homicidal rapist Benito Ramirez is back, quoting scripture and stalking Stephanie; vice cop Joe Morelli has a box of condoms with Stephanie's name on it; and Stephanie's afraid Ranger has his finger on her trigger. The whole gang's here for mirth and mayhem in Janet Evanovich's High Five. Read at your own risk in public places.

this story had so many different characters involved that it was hard to keep track of everyone until the end, when everything was explained.

I don't understand what is so good about this series. By book 5 Plum has learned nothing. She still doesn't carry her gun because she is afraid of it; she has learned nothing about her job; she is still whining about Morelli; she goes on jobs wearing mini-skirts; all her gear is in her purse and she can never get at it; she is face-to-face with a murderous stalker and has his gun trained on his belly but she doesn't shoot him; her diet is crap and she doesn't exercise yet she is said to be thin and fit; she has not grown or developed in any way I can see.

I hate books which keep their characters stupid with no learning or character development so they continue to make the same stupid decisions over and over just for the sake of keeping the story going. If she was even incrementally becoming a better bounty hunter and a better human being with increasing discipline and learning I might stay interested but I cannot read about the same incompetent person making the same mistakes and taking the same stupid decisions over and over. What is the attraction to stupidity in Fiction?

I really enjoy Evanovich's fast paced style. Her multiple plotline method really keeps me interested and involved in her stories. I will say however that these titles definitly fall into the candy for the brain category! Lots of fun and a good way to unwind but brain-junk-food.

I love all of Janet's books that I have read, mainly the Stephanie Plum series. I like the humour and the characters, and think they should make at least one film from the 'numbers' series.
