Publisher's Summary

In Stephanie Plum's opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in New Jersey. Out of work and out of money, with her Miata repossessed and her refrigerator empty, Stephanie blackmails her bail bondsman cousin into giving her a try as an apprehension agent. Stephanie knows zilch about the job requirements, but figures she can learn what it takes to catch a crook. Her first assignment: nail a former vice cop on the run from a charge of murder one - who also happens to be the irresistible macho pig who took Stephanie's virginity at age 16. This is the first in Evanovich's incredibly popular Stephanie Plum series.

Unabridged PLEASE!!!!!!!

I first read One For The Money, begrudgingly, as a result of a friend borrowing it from the library for me having recommended that I read it. I say begrudgingly because I'm not a great fan of american literature but I was very soon hooked and manically laughing out loud at random moments, to the growing irritation of my husband. Since then I have read the books many times without tiring of them and loved the opportunity to listen to this great book in the car on my way to work (Puts you in great humour for the day!!!). However, good as this abridged version is (I think that Lori Petty has the perfect voice for Stephanie Plum) it would be better in it's entirety - Please, please, please, Simon & Schuster ask Lori back in to read us the whole BOOK! However in the meantime for those keen to meet Stephanie Plum there are two versions of the abridged books up to Three which allow us the choice of Lori Petty or Lorelei King as narrator and for my money Lori Petty slightly has the edge.

A treat for those who don't yet know Ms Plum

These books are an utter delight - they are so much fun. Just be aware that you might become a tad antisocial as there are 12 books (so far) in the series and once you start...I so envy those who've yet to dicover the glorious Stephanie Plum!
