Product Description

From Amazon

Stephanie Plum, Trenton's favorite bondswoman, is having a career crisis, which gives Janet Evanovich plenty of opportunities to showcase her series heroine in a variety of alternative vocations, from dry cleaner to factory worker. Most of them don't last a full working day, which is good for the reader, since it plunges Stephanie back into the always seedy, often dangerous, and always colorful world of fugitives who'd rather flee than face their day in court. She may be tired of having her life threatened, her cars torched or blown up, and her apartment broken into, but one thing she can say about her job is that it's never boring... and neither is she. Despite her intentions of going straight at a job with a little more security and a bit less excitement, an old client won't let her--he keeps leaving her threatening notes, stalking and scaring her, and making sure she needs the protection of the two men in her life--Joe Morelli, the sexy cop who's been bedding her since high school, and Ranger, the even sexier tough guy who can take down the meanest fugitive around but has a tender spot in his heart for the plucky Ms. Plum. All Evanovich fans' favorite characters people this sprightly caper novel, including Lula, the fast-food-chomping former hooker who's hot to take over Stephanie's job but really belongs in a WWE Takedown; Grandma Mazur, who'd rather go to a wake than a fancy-dress ball; Grandma Bella, the matriarch of the Corelli family whose evil eye frightens even the indomitable Stephanie; and Valerie, Stephanie's sister, who's about to embark on another trip to the altar. A great beach read, Eleven on Top is a guilty pleasure that will delight readers of the author's 10 earlier novels and should win her even more fans. --Jane Adams

From Publishers Weekly

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum (last seen in 2004's Ten Big Ones) stumbles out of the gate due to some forced humor, but she eventually hits her usual entertaining stride in a tale that includes exploding cars, volatile wedding preparations and heated romantic entanglements. Stephanie decides to quit her job and seek less dangerous work after receiving a couple of disquieting notes. But the notes turn to threats and attacks, and she learns that her ineptitude is not confined to bounty hunting but transfers well to a succession of low-paying, sometimes humiliating jobs. After taking on Stephanie's previous duties, sidekick Lula naturally calls on Stephanie to lend a hand so that her bounty hunting travails continue unabated. Foul-mouthed Lula proves to have some pretty brutal ideas about how to bring 'em back. Bestseller Evanovich may be performing the same tricks over and over at this point in the series (the bumbling sleuth act, sexual-tension jokes, etc.), but most readers will find this a pleasing romp.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
To write for television, you have to create a memorable scene and finish it within 90 seconds. That's tough for comedy because you have to end each scene with a laugh. As wonderful a novelist as Janet Evanovich is, there's an even better script writer hidden inside her novels.

In Eleven on Top, Janet Evanovich has created a memorable scene and laugh every page and a half. That's very tough to do, but she's done it!

Although most will not want to put the book down (who wouldn't want to laugh almost nonstop to the end of a book?), you can read this book before going to sleep knowing that you'll reach a natural breaking point every page and a half.

Much of the humor is visual. It's a remarkable strength of the writing in this book that you can so easily see the slapstick. Few writers can capture slapstick in writing. Eleven on Top marks a new high in Ms. Evanovich's talent in this regard.

If you don't know Ms. Evanovich's writing, it's very much on a par with the very best scripts that Lucille Ball used in her shows with Desi.

Oh, yes, there is a plot. But it's there mainly for people who cannot enjoy a book without a plot. Almost any other plot would have done as well.

Stephanie finds that bounty hunting is just too disgusting for her . . . and quits Vinnie. For the first half of the book, she lurches violently from one job-related adventure to another. In between, Lulu persuades Stephanie to "assist" in capturing a particularly recalcitrant scofflaw. In the second half of the book, she finds a job she likes . . . but it has other complications that you'll love reading about. Someone is also stalking Stephanie and threatening her life. Morelli is obsessed with Stephanie's body . . . and Stephanie finds she "likes" the attention.

By Saya
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I still love me some Stephanie Plum hyjinks! She's still the same ol' crappy bounty hunter with a penchant for destoying her cars and attracting all the wrong kind of attention...but the formula is getting a bit old and wearing thin after this eleventh book in the series. What was once original, hilarious and quirky, I find myself laughing a whole lot less and wanting to smack Steph upside the head more times than I would like. The problem is that since the first book, nothing much has changed. Her hamster Rex is still (impossibily) alive after eleven years (hampsters live to be 3-4 years max.), her relationship with Morelli is stuck in the same old place it's been since they started a relationship, in book four! Ranger is still a complete mystery, Lula is still a complete nutter (although she is one of the few people that still make me laugh) and Stephanie still sucks at being a bounty hunter (and still refuses to carry a damn gun! I mean after so many attempts on your life it may be time to carry a piece ... but then again she'd probably end up shooting herself!). I hear book twelve will have serious revelations about Ranger, to which I say, "It's about time we got something new!!!"

Don't get me wrong, I still liked the book cause it's still a fun read, but it really is beginning to feel as though I've been reading the same story for a while now and Janet needs to change something ... I don't know, but I sure hope book twelve will be like reading the 12th in the series and not as if I've already read that story before ... hasn't really changed since book 8!

I love all of Janet Evanovich's novels. They're funny, sexy, witty, and have great characters.

I still can't make up my mind between the two men in Stephanie Plum's life, Morelli or Ranger, so how in the world will she be able to choose? Is there such a thing as keeping both?

Grandma Mazur is hilarious; Stephanie has a wonderful family.

It was a break to have her quit her bounty hunter job and try her hand at all those other kooky jobs ... and then surprise ... surprise ... she goes to work for Ranger. Enough said!

You must buy this book to find out what happens next! It's worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in a while July 26 2005
Format:Hardcover
This was one of the best Plum novels since the first came out. Again, I laughed out loud in many places. It was funny and witty. Stephanie seems to have taken a step in the right direction. I was getting tired of the bounty hunting. SPOILER ALERT : Now, as a sort-of-detective, working with Ranger (YES!), she's fabulous! I can't wait for the next installment. The last two books had been minor let-downs. She's back!

3.0 out of 5 stars 10 For Humor 1 For Suspense Nov. 6 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is entertaining. Stephanie Plum careens from one improbable situation to the next with witty dialogue and easy-to-read narrative that makes the plot move along briskly. The characters are a little cliche-the strapping, sexy Morelli who is both lover and hero for Plum fits a certain stereotype to a T. Plum, herself, is quite engaging, and the is the kind of person who stumbles into one hilarious predicament after the other with a group of equally colorful colleagues. However, the book appears to me to center more around a diverse set of interesting characters and their relations rather than an intricate crime plot full suspense and mind bending developments. Basically, several people disappear and an unknown enemy of Plum hounds her with menacing messages. Plum, the ex bounty hunter, and Morelli and others chase this trail.The Griffon Trilogy: Part I
