Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich

Stephanie Plumb, my favorite bounty hunter, is on the trail of Martin Munch, boy genius who received his doctorate degree in quantum physics at the age of 22. Munch is on Stephanie’s radar because he has failed to appear in court for stealing a monster cesium vapor magnetometer, after busting his boss’s nose with a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee cup. To complicate matters Stephanie wakes up one morning to find Carl the monkey tied to her apartment door. There’s a note tied to the money asking Stephanie to look after Carl until his owner gets back into town.

As the investigation continues Stephanie learns that Martin has teamed up with Wulf Grimoire, an opportunist who can kill without remorse, disappear like smoke, and wants world domination. Helping Stephanie is a weird guy named Diesel. Diesel is also a bounty hunter but he has special skills when it comes to tracking men. While on the hunt, Diesel and Stephanie end up in the Pine Barrens, where they run into strange characters like the retired Easter Bunny and a man who really looks like a Sasquatch.

All of this may seem really strange to you but to Stephanie it’s pretty much an ordinary day on the job. If you want to know how she “gets her man”, read the book.
