Hard Eight by Janet Evanovich
Mabel Markowitz, Stephanie's mother's neighbour asks Stephanie to check
on the whereabouts of her daughter Evelyn Soder. She has gone missing
along with her daughter. Mabel's house may be in jeopardy as she put it
up as part of the child custody agreement.
In the course of this
investigation Stephanie comes across Eddie Ambruzzi, a psycho. Ambruzzi
has Stephanie trailed by a rabbit and leaves her snakes and spiders and
Stephanie is also in the process of bringing in
Andy Bender, with help from a lawyer clown, Albert Kloughn. She ends up
losing an endless number of handcuffs and a car in the process. This
part is absolutely hilarious. Bender is interested in Stephanie's sister
Valerie who has moved back home with her children.
and the best part is that Stephanie finally gets it on with Ranger. About time!!
