E book Overview: Three To Get Deadly

By  admin

“Three to Get Deadly” is the third book in Janet Evanovich’s series about Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter.

This story focusses on the mystery associated with the disappearance of the man everyone in the community loved and called “Uncle Mo”. He owned the candy store where children and adults alike had good memories. He was stopped by a rookie cop when he was doing ten miles above the speed limit. Mo had been carrying a concealed weapon and was arrested because of this.

Stephanie’s cousin Vinnie had posted bail on behalf of Uncle Mo but, when Uncle Mo didn’t appear when he was required, Stephanie was assigned to the case. Her role, as bounty hunter, is to capture the missing person and turn him into the police station. As payment for her work, she receives ten percent of the amount of bail that was posted.

In this book, Stephanie face a great deal of scorn and resistance from the community as they all have grown to love Uncle Mo over the years. Their perception is that Uncle Mo would never have done anything wrong.

Stephanie knows the law but she doesn’t always follow it. She breaks into Uncle Mo’s apartment and is surprised by what she finds. She, and community members are also shocked by the fact that dead bodies keep turning up. The danger increases and Stephanie finds herself dealing with drug dealers and prostitutes in areas of New Jersey that she would likely not otherwise frequent.

Joe Morelli, the vice-cop who had sexually abused Stephanie in the past and Ranger who is Stephanie’s bounty hunter mentor are both supports and irritants for Stephanie who is determined to find Uncle Mo and determine who was doing all the killing.

Stephanie’s eccentric parents and Grandmother Mazur also have important roles in this crime novel. They all have strong ideas about how Stephanie should live and work, a situation that causes her stress. At the same time, however, they are always there for Stephanie if she wants a good home-cooked meal, advice or someone to accompany her on missions.

Lula, a former prostitute, who was introduced to us in an earlier Plum novel, is now working in Vinnie’s office as a filing clerk. She has a bigger role in “Three to get Deadly” as she provides valuable information, transportation and interesting but unconventional companionship to Stephanie.

Stephanie and Joe Morelli’s relationship becomes even more complex than in the past. They begin caring about one another and it is obvious that Joe wants to ensure that Stephanie is safe.

This was a great book that, in typical Evanovich style, has a plot with unexpected twists and turns. I continue to enjoy the way in which she combines the seriousness of violence and crime with the everyday humour of the interesting characters who all contribute to the plot in their own unique ways.

I can hardly wait for the next installment in the Stephanie Plum novel collection. I’m looking forward to more of the same suspenseful and funny stories.

Night time Machines by Kia Heavey

In this novel of suspense, romance-gone-awry, and the paranormal, the main character, Maggie Moore, is married to Rowan, a detective in the small town where they live, and is the mother of two. Now that her children are a bit older, she’s ready to return to the working world but is anxious about her interview for a part-time job as a corporate communications writer and editor at NarcoDynamics. Dr. Cambien Cuthbert, founder of the company and creator of the clinical sleep aid Anadreme, which eliminates “intense dreaming, night panics, and nightmares,” is a former high school chum, whom Maggie only barely remembers. He’s no longer the lanky, awkward, pale teen but now a tall, svelte, wickedly handsome man of confidence and success-who has a long-held attraction for Maggie. The way she represents herself in the interview with Cuthbert, she’s certain she blew her chance for the job. She’s wrong, of course. Soon, Maggie’s thoughts about her boss seduce her into behaviors and visions that are a form of escape from her predictable life, a husband who is becoming more and more remote, and her insecurities. As is printed on the book cover, “Maggie decided to have an affair. No one needed to know, not even her lover.”

Soon after the story opens, a tragedy happens in their area: A child has been murdered, and there’s no trail leading to her killer. People in the small town where Maggie and Rowan live are in a heightened state of awareness and panic, causing additional problems, which keeps Rowan and his fellow police officers busy nearly around the clock as they address these new issues and simultaneously work the homicide. Maggie and Rowan drift apart, which makes Cambien Cuthbert’s attentions all the more appealing: “She wanted two men and could have neither.” Feeling abandoned by her now careworn, ill-tempered husband, Maggie engages in a very different kind of affair with her boss, an imaginary one that begins to consume her. All the while, Cuthbert inveigles himself into her life in such a way that there seems to be no escape from him or her desire for him.

I found this an engaging read! Murders, manipulations, and agendas… I have to be careful about spoilers because this plot unfolds in layers that go deeper and darker until… So what I will say is that the author, Kia Heavey, creates a rich tapestry of scenery, motive, character development, and plot. The tension builds deliciously throughout the book, revealing more and more of what’s really going on, which you, more than likely, may not or probably won’t anticipate. She has the gift for turning a phrase and does so effectively and often throughout the book. A big Thumbs-Up for this author’s creative imagination and storytelling skills.
