Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a "lucky" bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn't specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck....
Vinnie, of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds, has run up a gambling debt of $786,000 with mobster Bobby Sunflower and is being held until the cash can be produced.
Being in the business of tracking down people, Stephanie, office manager Connie, and file clerk Lula have an advantage in finding Vinnie.
Finding a safe place to hide Vinnie turns out to be harder than raising $786,000. Not even local stoner Walter "Moon Man" Dunphy is up to the task.
Between a bonds office yard sale, Mooner's Hobbit-Con charity event, and Uncle Pip's lucky bottle, they just might raise enough money to save the business, and Vinnie, from ruin.
Saving Vincent Plum Bail Bonds means Stephanie can keep her job as a bounty hunter―and keep hunting down a man wanted for polygamy, a turnpike toilet paper bandit, and a drug dealer with a pet alligator named Mr. Jingles.
Being a bounty hunter comes with its perks, namely Trenton's hottest cop, Joe Morelli, and the dark and dangerous security expert, Ranger. With any luck at all, Uncle Pip's lucky bottle will have Stephanie getting lucky―the only question is...with whom?
Janet Evanovich's Sizzling Sixteen...so hot, the pages might spontaneously combust!

Janet Evanovich is the author of the Stephanie Plum books, including One for the Money and Two for the Dough, and the Diesel & Tucker series, including Wicked Appetite. Janet studied painting at Douglass College, but that art form never quite fit, and she soon moved on to writing stories. She didn't have instant success: she collected a big box of rejection letters. As she puts it, "When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency." But after a few months of secretarial work, she managed to sell her first novel for $2,000. She immediately quit her job and started working full-time as a writer. After a dozen romance novels, she switched to mystery, and created Stephanie Plum. The rest is history. Janet's favorite exercise is shopping, and her drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles. She and her husband live in New Hampshire, in house with a view of the Connecticut River Valley.From AudioFile:
Get ready for a wild ride as bondswoman Stephanie Plum, along with her BFF Lulu and office manager Connie, races around looking for Stephanie's cousin Vinnie, who is being held for ransom until the office comes up with at least a million dollars. Lorelei King performs Evanovich's most recent mystery with her usual panache as the familiar characters look for the kidnappers and gangsters of New Jersey. Plum works her connections, who including Ranger, a private bodyguard, and police detective Joe Morelli. Each of the gangsters has his own idiosyncrasies, including one with a pet alligator. Although we never learn what "sizzling sixteen" is, there are rollicking funny adventures interspersed between chase scenes and some pretty lame sex. King's tone is just right for Plum's madcap adventures. M.B.K © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
