Description

New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries have sold millions of copies. Metro Girl introduces a new heroine, Alexandra "Barney" Barnaby. When her not-so-bright brother Wild Bill, a boat captain, goes missing in Florida, Barney takes up the search. Apart from the sunburn and humidity-induced bad hair, Barney also has to deal with Sam Hooker, whose missing boat might lead to Wild Bill. With wacky characters, side-splitting humor, sexual innuendo and lots of bad things happening to cars, Metro Girl is pure, zany Evanovich-and hopefully only the start of Barney's adventures.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Meet Alexandra Barnaby, a brown-belt insurance clerk from Baltimore who is Evanovich's newest sleuth. Other wacky characters include Alex's missing brother, Wild Bill; a schnauzer addicted to spice cookies; an exiled Cuban warlord; thugs with slicked back hair dressed all in black in the sweltering Florida sun; a NASCAR driver; and Felicia, a gun-toting, cigar-rolling Cuban refugee who shoots villains and then worries about the luminosity of her skin. C.J. Critt's narration adds the spice to these quirky characters, making them unforgettable and paving the way for a new series. Her inflections add sizzle to the romance and groans to the silly quips. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine

        November 8, 2004
        "Just because I know how to change a guy's oil doesn't mean I want to spend the rest of my life on my back, staring up his undercarriage." From the word go, Evanovich delivers her usual goods, albeit in a different vehicle. After 10 Stephanie Plum novels, each more successful than the last, Evanovich introduces Alexandra Barnaby, aka Barney. Barney hails from Baltimore rather than New Jersey, but she's from the same slice of working-class life as Stephanie; she donned mechanic's overalls in her father's garage during summer breaks from college. Her younger brother, Wild Bill, shares her passion for cars, and now he's disappeared from Miami, along with NASCAR star Sam Hooker's boat, the Happy Hooker
        . Evanovich doesn't mind showing her romance roots, as Barney and Sam start off snarling at each other; as any reader can tell, they have to team up (a) to save Bill and (b) to enjoy delicious sex. As in the Plum books, plot takes a back seat to riffs, roughups and dialogue—and in the last lies the book's most notable distinction. If Stephanie bids fair to be New Jersey's Dorothy Parker, Barney is Baltimore's echo of Robert Parker. Conversation is terse and coded, full of sexual innuendo, with a high premium on toss-away lines uttered under duress. Despite the amazing quantity of physical jeopardy, there's little tension; it's all about hanging out with Metro Girl and NASCAR Guy—which may be just what millions of Evanovich fans will want. Agent, Robert Gottlieb
        . (Nov.)

        Forecast:
        Evanovich will see major marketing for her HarperCollins debut, including TV and prints ads and a national bus tour with the author, her webmaster daughter and Barnaby the St. Bernard, which means that Alexandra Barnaby will likely prove as popular as St
        ephanie Plum (the Plum novels are published by St. Martin's).
