Stephanie Plum is is a failed lingerie buyer, newly turned bond agent. Her first job is to find Morrelli, a policeman/murder suspect on the run and her childhood sweetheart. Real menace enters the story when Stephanie attracts the psychopathic attentions of boxer Benito Ramirez.
Stephanie Plum is a fictional character and the protagonist in a series of novels written by Janet Evanovich. She is a spunky combination of Nancy Drew and Dirty Harry, and — although a female bounty hunter — is the opposite of Domino Harvey. She is described by the author as “incredibly average and yet heroic if necessary.”
Evanovich claims the inspiration for Stephanie’s character came after watching Midnight Run starring Charles Grodin and Robert De Niro, adding, “If Mickey Spillane wrote Archie and Veronica, Stephanie would be Betty.” As the series has progressed, Stephanie has become more stable and responsible, and a better bounty hunter. “But truthfully,” Evanovich says, “Stephanie has stayed the same more than she’s changed.”

Bounty-hunter Stephanie Plum has to track down Mo, the local candy store owner who has jumped bail. Nobody will believe that Mo has done anything wrong, but Stephanie – with the help of big blonde Lula and good cop/bad cop Joe Morelli – soon discovers that Mo has more than candy in his basement.
