The brilliantly funny page-turner from Janet Evanovich, No 1 bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum books.
Buckle your seat belts. Number One bestselling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with 'Metro Girl', a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy stock-car racer who's along for the ride.
When 'Wild' Bill Barnaby drops off the face of the earth, big sister Alex heads for Miami to save him. Battling bad-hair-day humidity, Miami hitmen, and Palmetto bugs big enough to eat her alive, Alex pursues her brother's trail through the bars of South Beach then south to Key West and Cuba.
Turns out, in his haste to leave town, Bill 'borrowed' a yacht belonging to Sam Hooker, hero of the NASCAR circuit. Hooker figures he'll attach himself to Alex and maybe run into scumbag Bill. Maybe even get lucky in love with Bill's sweetie-pie sister. After all, he is very good at revving a woman's engine.
The race to the finish is hot and hard, taking Alex and Hooker into international waters, exposing a plot to grab Cuban gold and a sinister relic of the Cuban missile crisis.
Creative cussing and tasteless sexual innuendo included.
