Book Critique – Hot Six (Stephanie Plum #6)

For review of all books in the series: Go here.

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: A doggedly persistent gumshoe even with her ineptness, unprofessionalism and above all not having an incline to use a weapon, it is a miracle that Stephanie has strong instincts to chase the case and bring it to a closure.

Hot Six is the sixth book in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, first published in July of 2000. She is pursuing her mentor in this book who goes on the lam after he is accused of murder.

Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter living in Trenton, New Jersey.  When she goes out of work and out of money, she blackmails her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie, to giver her a job of an apprehensive agent in his company. That begins the series with every book an adventure into Stephanie's trail onto fugitives and recovering them. And in the process she solves mysteries enabling her to hone her skills. And readers have been entertained with so far 27 books in the series with more to come, beginning with One for the Money in 1994 leading upto the 27th book Fortune and Glory to be released later this year.

According to the author, each book can be read as a stand-alone. However, there are bound to have characters, scenes and sub-plots seep into other books or traverse through the plots as we normally see in any series that has been existing for so long. The stories are told in first person narration.
