Introduction

Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum's life is set to blow sky high when international murder hits dangerously close to home, in this dynamite novel by Janet Evanovich.
 
Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she's flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
 
Only one other person has seen the missing photo?Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn?t intend to end up in a garbage can. With the help of an FBI sketch artist Stephanie re-creates the person in the photo. Unfortunately the first sketch turns out to look like Tom Cruise, and the second sketch like Ashton Kutcher. Until Stephanie can improve her descriptive skills, she?ll need to watch her back.
 
Over at the bail bonds agency things are going from bad to worse. The bonds bus serving as Vinnie's temporary HQ goes up in smoke. Stephanie's wheelman, Lula, falls in love with their largest skip yet. Lifetime arch nemesis Joyce Barnhardt moves into Stephanie's apartment. And everyone wants to know what happened in Hawaii?
 
Morelli, Trenton's hottest cop, isn?t talking about Hawaii. Ranger, the man of mystery, isn?t talking about Hawaii.  And all Stephanie is willing to say about her Hawaiian vacation is . . . It's complicated.

The hardcover edition of Explosive Eighteen contains a tear-out calendar inside!

  "Just another Plum novel"by tristephanie (see profile) 03/14/12

I enjoy these books, but I had to describe it as pointless is because while things have changed, nothing has changed. I don't know why she can't just let Stephanie chose a man already. Thank goodness for... (read more)

 
  "Stephanie, Joe, Ranger ... and so on ... and on ... and on"by Neyly (see profile) 02/19/12

I like the series just enough to continue checking the books out of the library. Evanovich adds nothing new here, except the title. I doubt Evanovich will shake things much up in the series as long as... (read more)
