When Maxine fails to turn up in court, bounty-hunter Stephanie has to bring her in. Then Maxine's boyfriend begins to receive notes from her that hint at buried treasure. Cop Joe Morelli is also proving useful, but he can't decide what he wants more - Maxine's bounty or Stephanie's body.

Stephanie has been sent out by her cousin-boss, Vinnie, as a bond-skipper retriever to locate, and bring back, Maxine Nowicki, free on a stolen automobile charge,now, a bond skipper. Maxine's boyfriend offers money if Stephanie can retrieve valuable love letters. Unpleasantness is difficult to deal with. Sometimes, procrastination works, and the thorn-in-the-side goes away. But, sometimes, it doesn't.
Joyce Bernhardt returns, revived, and ready to prickle Stephanie again. She is a rival bounty hunter and an arch-enemy. Grandma Mazar doesn't mince words when she asks Sally Sweet, the code-breaking drag queen, some very personal questions about his anatomy. He stands seven feet tall in high heels, and he refuses to shave his arms, legs, arm pits, or chest hairs. So much for luscious.
This book is a real page flipper. The characters are quick on the uptake, insightfully astute, and they have instinctive self-preservation acuity. Stephanie could be the girl next door, if that girl is street smart, has a licentious oriented Grandma, and is tenacious as a bulldog in a thunderstorm. Lulu's physical magnitude hasn't diminished, her proportions stretch seam strength, but, she is funny and loyal. The Robin Goodfellow michievousness is refreshing. Keep these alive and well. Humour is infectious. We need more super-heroes with feet firmly planted on terra-firma. Excellent.
As always, Evanovich surrounds Stephanie with the usual ensemble cast: Lula, Connie, Grandma Mazur, Ranger, etc. But Joe Morelli gets the spotlight in this installment, and deservedly so. After all, Stephanie has to camp out in his place after her apartment is burned out. More important, their relationship takes a very carnal turn. Joe and Stephanie have a real stake in this now. When thoughts turn to kitchen curtains and cookie jars, both shudder at the potential of commitment.
In the long run though, it is crime that glues everyone together. Who is passing around funny money? What did an angry young woman steal from her ex-boyfriend that is ticking him off and why is she leaving cryptic clues as to where the thing is? Who strangled a convenience store clerk and is scalping and chopping off women's fingers? Who is threatening Stephanie's life? Who might be placing Stephanie's hamster, Rex, in danger? All these questions (well, with the exception of the last one) keep the plot moving at a swift place. And Evanovich's ear for the right humor at the right time is pitch perfect here. "Four to Score" is another great installment in the Stephanie Plum series.
