Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times mega-bestselling author, is back and better than ever, proving that when it comes to hunting down bad guys and hidden treasure, the real fun is in the chase. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his twenty-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust. Following clues contained in a cryptic nineteenth-century book of sonnets, Lizzy and Diesel tear through Boston catacombs, government buildings, and multimillion-dollar residences, leaving a trail of robbed graves, public disturbances, and spontaneous seduction. Janet Evanovich does it again and gives us another exciting un-put-down-able read that is striking a chord with readers everywhere!

Reasons to read Janet Evanovich's bestselling novels: 'Hilarious' (Mail on Sunday); 'The funniest, sassiest crime writer going' (Good Book Guide); 'A laugh-out-loud page turner' (Heat) True love is hard to find when the secret has been taken to the tomb. Lizzy Tucker's once normal life as a pastry chef is over as she battles sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented, but off-limits partner, Diesel. There's been a gruesome murder of a lovelorn academic, and the clues to finding the killer point straight to one of Seven Stones Lizzy and Diesel have been searching for. Problem is Diesel's black sheep cousin, Wulf, also wants the stone. Or maybe it's Lizzy that he wants. Either way Lizzy and Diesel are in his crosshairs. Treasures will be sought, and the power of lust will be unmistakable as Lizzy and Diesel find themselves in an ancient game of twisted riddles and high-stakes hide-and-seek.
Hit the beach with three funny, fast-paced summer reads, including a smokin’ hot Stephanie Plum novel—now in a special ebook bundle from #1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich! In THE HEIST, Evanovich teams up with Lee Goldberg, bestselling author and television writer for Monk, for the first adventure in an electrifying series featuring Kate O’Hare, an FBI agent who always gets her man, and Nicolas Fox, a fearless con artist who lives for the chase. In WICKED BUSINESS, Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. And in SMOKIN’ SEVENTEEN, Stephanie Plum is under pressure to choose between her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Trenton cop Joe Morelli, and the bad boy in her life, security expert Ranger. With a cold-blooded killer after her, a handful of hot men, and a capture list that includes a dancing bear and a senior citizen vampire, Stephanie’s life looks like it’s about to go up in smoke. Also includes excerpts from The Chase, Wicked Charms, and Explosive Eighteen as well as a preview of the first book in Janet Evanovich’s upcoming Knight and Moon series, Curious Minds, with co-author Phoef Sutton! Praise for Janet Evanovich “No less than her plotting, Evanovich’s characterizations are models of screwball artistry. . . . The intricate plot machinery of her comic capers is fueled by inventive twists.”—The New York Times “[Evanovich’s novels are] among the great joys of contemporary crime fiction.”—GQ “Chutzpah and sheer comic inventiveness . . .

This book disrupts the way practitioners and academic scholars think about crowds, crowdsourcing, innovation, and new organizational forms in this emerging period of ubiquitous access to the internet. The authors argue that the current approach to crowdsourcing unnecessarily limits the crowd to offering ideas, locking out those of us with knowledge about a problem. They use data from 25 case studies of flash crowds — anonymous strangers answering online announcements to participate in a 7-10 day innovation challenge — half of whom were unleashed from the limitations of focusing on ideas. Yet, these crowds were able to develop new business models, new product lines, and offer useful solutions to global problems in fields as diverse as health care insurance, software development, and societal change. This book, which offers a theory of collective production of innovative solutions explaining the practices that the crowds organically followed, will revolutionize current assumptions about how innovation and crowdsourcing should be managed for commercial as well as societal purposes.

A Wicked Pack Of Cards is a poem with a kaleidoscope of different voices. It is a place where a keynote speaker chatters with a green knight; an old God teases a lost businessman with the prospect of a career-changing riddle; and where Europe's most famous Business Magician offers salvation to all those who believe in his wicked pack of cards. Set in no particular time, A Wicked Pack Of Cards asks what might happen in a world after our version of reality ceases to exist. It feels post-apocalyptic. It mixes old stories, traditions and superstitions with the digital fantasies, Venn diagrams and strategies of the commercial world. What would happen if the great business consultants of our time discovered paganism and sorcery? This. This would happen. The poem is made up of thirteen-cards and a riddle. Each one is a spell - a business spell. It will take you down the dark back-alleyways of burnout, depression and imposter syndrome. Yes, A Wicked Pack of Cards is dark; but read carefully, and it will eventually deliver you into the light of optimism and the most powerful spell of all: true love.
