In Ten Big Ones, Stephanie Plum is the only one who can identify a gang member known as The Red Devil, leader of a local gang called The Slayers. Of course, Stephanie being Stephanie is targeted by a gang hitman known as Junkman. Having no place to go without endangering her loved ones and losing her car to an unfortunate explosion, yet again, Stephanie leaves Morelli's house and lies low in Ranger's almost bat cave.

Ten Big Ones was a simple story that didn't tie in to one of Stephanie's original F.T.As. She was actually quite competent in capturing all of them. Or maybe they just couldn't get away. Either way, her character continues to grow and gets tougher. This isn't the same Stephanie Plum from One for the Money. She's not Supergirl but she isn't your ordinary human either.

The love triangle between Stephanie, Morelli, and Ranger is oddly not annoying. It's probably the most realistic thing in the novels itself. This is probably because it's not a main component of the story but the added seasoning. The supporting characters are becoming more three dimensional and given more to do especially Connie. Give me more Connie! All in all, Ten Big Ones was very good. ( )

More suspenseful than most of the others, this, I think, is the first time I actually worried about Stephanie – when the gang hires out for her murder. She decides to hide out at Ranger’s apartment (she was living with Morelli, but both worried about putting him in danger, and chafing at his overbearing “Stay at home!!!”, she leaves), which makes for sexiness, but no sex… Hmmm. This one also sees the return of Sally, the ugliest transvestite on the planet, and the upcoming marriage of Steph’s sister Valerie to the dumpily sweet Albert, and Lula, on a carb-free diet, who carts around meat in her purse, making her a favorite of dogs everywhere… ( )

Once again, Stephanie finds herself in the midst of trouble. I generally read Evanovich books as a filler between more serious novels, and this one fit the bill just fine. Realistically, Stephanie should've been dead a long time ago, and in this one she escapes a Trenton gang. As in other Plum novels, my favorite parts are the sexual tension between Stephanie & Morelli and/or Ranger. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312936222, Mass Market Paperback)

Stephanie Plum, girl bounty hunter, the terror of Trenton, the bane of her boyfriend Joe Morelli's existence, and the delight of her crazy grandma's heart, is in the wrong place at the wrong time--as usual. Just happening to be indulging her nachos jones at a local deli when it's robbed by the notorious Red Devils, Plum is the eye witness who could put the gang leader, known as the Junkman, behind bars... if he just lets her live long enough. Looking for a place to hide out from the killer until the cops catch up with him, Stephanie sneaks into her fellow bounty hunter Ranger's apartment without telling Morelli, who's not overly fond of him. All the usual suspects in this long-running series are along for a wilder than ever ride, including Lula the gun-toting ex-hooker, Grandma Mazur, Stephanie's pregnant sister Valerie and her fiancé, as well as a host of minor characters who bring Trenton's seedier environs to life. Ten Big Ones is another madcap caper by a writer whose fans will doubtless catapult this easy beach read to the top of the bestseller list. --Jane Adams
