TWISTED TWENTY-SIX: Janet Evanovich’s Next Stephanie Plum Thriller Announced

On November 12th, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum will return in Twisted Twenty-Six, the latest must-read thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich. 

Now twenty-six books in, Evanovich is reaching rarified air and showing zero signs of slowing down anytime soon. Her last Plum book, Look Alive Twenty-Five (2018), was a hit with fans, and the author has at least one other book coming out this year. The Big Kahuna—the sixth book in her Fox and O’Hare series, which she co-wrote with her son and longtime editor,  Peter Evanovich—comes out on May 7th. Plum, though, is still her most beloved and cherished character to date, and her return is always one of the most talked-about releases each fall. 

This time around, Stephanie is said to be trying to save someone she cares about when things take a complicated turn. Check out the cover art and official plot details below. 


Twisted Twenty-Six.jpgStephanie Plum’s career has taken more wrong turns than a student driver on the Jersey Turnpike, and her love life is a hopeless tangle. In order to save someone dear to her, she’ll have to straighten things out in Twisted Twenty-Six the latest, novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

Grandma Mazur is a widow…again. This time her marriage lasted a whole 45 minutes. The unlucky groom was one Jimmy Rosolli, local gangster, lothario (senior division) and heart attack waiting to happen…well, the waiting’s over.

It’s a sad day, but if she can’t have Jimmy at least Grandma can have all the attention she wants as the dutiful widow. But some kinds of attention are not welcomed, particularly when Jimmy’s former “business partners” are convinced that his widow is keeping the keys to their financial success for herself.

As someone who has spent an entire career finding bad guys, a set of missing keys should be no challenge for Stephanie Plum. Problem is, the facts are as twisted as a boardwalk pretzel with mustard.



Janet Evanovich is the #1 bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, the Fox and O’Hare novels, the Knight and Moon novels, the Lizzy and Diesel series, the Alexandra Barnaby novels, and coauthor of a graphic novel, Troublemaker, with her daughter, Alex.
