Monday mornings aren’t supposed to be fun, but they should be predictable. However, on this particular Monday, Stephanie Plum knows that something is amiss when she turns up for work at Vinnie’s Bail Bonds to find the door locked, the coffeepot empty, and the usual box of Boston cream donuts absent. That’s because longtime office manager Connie Rosolli, who is as reliable as the tides in Atlantic City, hasn’t shown up.
Stephanie’s worst fears are confirmed when she gets a call from Connie’s abductor. He says he will release her only in exchange for a mysterious coin that a recently murdered man left as collateral for his bail. Unfortunately, this coin, which should be in the office—just like Connie—is nowhere to be found.
The quest to discover the coin, learn its value, and save Connie will require the help of Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur; her best pal, Lula; her boyfriend, Morelli; and hunky security expert Ranger. Their journey will lead them to a comic book convention in Atlantic City (red capes and Loki horns for everyone!), down narrow streets in Chambersburg where secrets can’t be kept, and through questionable junkyards where cars can be had on the cheap, if one isn’t picky about make or model (or smell).
As Stephanie gets closer to unraveling the reasons behind Connie’s kidnapping, Connie’s captor grows more threatening, and soon Stephanie has no choice but to throw caution to the wind, follow her instincts, and go rogue. She is more shocked by the results than anyone.
Full of surprises, thrills, and humor, Going Roguereveals a new side of Stephanie Plum, and shows Janet Evanovich at her scorching, riotous best.
