An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive.
Plot summary[ edit ] Stephanie Plum , laid off from her job as a lingerie buyer for a Newark department store, applies for a filing job with her cousin Vinnie, a bail bondsman. Vinnie's assistant, Connie, tells her the job is taken, but suggests she work as a bounty hunter , apprehending clients who have failed to appear for their court dates. Stephanie is excited to learn that Joe Morelli, a Trenton vice cop and onetime sexual acquaintance of hers, is FTA and facing charges for murder one.
Staking out Morelli's apartment, Stephanie follows his cousin, Mooch, to Morelli's hideout and finds him quickly, but is humiliated when he laughs off her demand that she come with him, pointing out correctly that she has neither the equipment nor the training to apprehend an unwilling fugitive.
Connie puts her in touch with Vinnie's "star" bounty hunter, Ricardo Manoso, a.
One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, No. 1)
Morelli claims that Ziggy was armed and Morelli shot him in self-defense, but no gun was recovered at the crime scene. Stephanie's friend, police officer Eddie Gazarra, advises her that Morelli is likely going around Trenton, trying to find witnesses who will clear his name, so her best bet at finding him is to follow the same trail.
Stephanie's first stop is a boxing gym on Stark Street Trenton's roughest neighborhood to interview champion boxer Benito Ramirez and his manager Jimmy Alpha, both known associates of Ziggy Kuleska.
Her interview with Ramirez quickly turns ugly when he tries to rape her, but she is rescued by Morelli, who disappears almost as quickly as he appeared. Exploring Morelli's apartment with Ranger, Stephanie decides to "commandeer" Morelli's Jeep Grand Cherokee , counting on trapping him when he tries to steal it back. In Plan B, the final, unfinished, novel to the series, he gives up on this idea and accepts that there is no hope for blacks under a white system of law.
Thirty years later Walter Mosley, in a string of novels featuring African American amateur detective Easy Rawlins, arrives at a similar conclusion.
Most important, at least for our present purpose, is that since the early s an ever increasing number of women has swollen the ranks of American writers working in the hard-boiled crime tradition.
One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1)
Stephen F. Soitos, in The Blues Detective: Then, true to the double-consciousness pattern that W. Dubois long ago discerned as typical for an African American culture operating against the backdrop of a wider and more general white American culture, these detectives always engage in role-playing. A fourth element is hoodoo. With the exception of the fourth, highly-specialised item, which seems specific only to African American fiction, and arguably not even to all of that, all other items to a greater or lesser degree, and according to the particularities of the group concerned, also apply to minority detective writing other than African American.
Walton and Manina Jones, in Detective Agency: Obviously, the dialogue this recently established female tradition conducts with its classic male American counterpart is both elaborate and complex.
For the empowerment of working class males under the New Deal it was important that the classic hard-boiled detective be a working professional.
For female empowerment at the time of the first massive wave of women crime writers, in the s, it is equally important that women detectives then rising to fame are professionals too: Like their classic male examples, they are loners in the sense that they do not have any next of kin. Even white male crime writing as of the s starts paying more attention to the social embedding of its characters, for instance by converting the hero from a lone private eye into a police detective operating in the appropriate institutional setting.
Eventually, this led to the emergence of a special sub-genre: In this respect it is useful to recall that the novels of Chester Himes, from which Soitos takes most of his examples, likewise feature two black police detectives, not private eyes.
Notwithstanding Himes, though, the police procedural has not proved very attractive for minority writers, including women writers. This is understandable if we stop to consider that — at least until recently — minorities were scarce, or in any case underrepresented, and often unwelcome, in real life police forces.
In fact, various fictional female private eyes started out as police detectives but found they could not stand the evident gender bias.
Warshawski turned investigator when she became disillusioned with the little she could achieve as a legal aid lawyer. Instead of to the male-tinged camaraderie of the precinct duty room, or even the courthouse, then, both Kinsey Millhone and V.
Warshawski turn to support groups of neighbours and friends, composed mostly of women and the occasional much older man — thereby reflecting the everyday social environment of the average house wife rather than that of the working woman.
If a younger man does come into the picture, usually as a lover, the relation between him and the female detective is always tense, and more often than not comes to nothing in the end. Finally, more often than not, the specific cases these female detectives take on highlight the plight of women.
Grafton usually sticks to the level of the personal and of family relations.
Paretsky more often than not moves from there to the level of the social, the economic, and the political. First, there is the question of names. Female detectives apparently prefer potentially male names: Then, there is the matter of dress and general appearance.
With Kinsey this takes the form of not paying any particular attention to such matters as clothes and hairdo, and pointedly telling us so. As to female vernaculars, Walton and Jones emphasise how in various instances Kinsey Millhone likens detecting, and particularly the more tedious aspects of it, to house keeping.
Then there is the language of the body, not just, as is traditional in crime writing, in terms of violence done to it — though in both Grafton and Paretsky there is plenty of that too — but rather as to its most intimate workings, for instance when Warshawski details her period. With Paretsky the language of feminism also intervenes, especially in the conversations Warshawski has with her female friends of the s and 70s.
In both cases the food, and the talk about it, is also a way of forging and fostering social alliances and relationships.
What is going on, then, in the fiction of Grafton, Paretsky, and their likes, is a subtle balancing of male generic conventions and female appropriations of them, via Ms Common America cast as hard-boiled hero ine. By the mids the female tradition embodied by these authors apparently had already assumed such firm contours that newcomer Janet Evanovich could bounce her highly successful Stephanie Plum series off of it, and thus seriously question its specific form of empowerment.
Plum Boxed Set 2 (Stephanie Plum, #4-6)
Almost blow for blow, and from the very outset, Evanovich posits Stephanie Plum as a send- up of both the male and the female hard-boiled traditions. Both, in the time-honoured tradition of hard- boiled writing, tell their own tale, and do so retrospectively.
This is where the similarities end, though, because whereas Kinsey made a deliberate choice to become a private eye after having quit the police force, Stephanie in One for the Money becomes a bounty hunter almost by accident, after having lost her job as a lingerie buyer for a downmarket clothing store. The contrast here could not be starker, and is immediately indicative of the gap separating Stephanie from the by now traditional female private eye. The beginnings of the two novels in case likewise immediately create a very different atmosphere.
Kinsey starts off with My name is Kinsey Millhone. While he is hiding in her apartment, Vinnie's regular bounty hunter, Morty Beyers, comes by and requests his case files back, since he's recovered from his appendicitis. Instead, Morty is killed when a car bomb destroys the SUV, proving that whatever Stephanie is investigating is making someone angry or nervous. At a butcher shop that Ziggy Kuleska was known to frequent, Stephanie is shocked to recognize the "flat-nose" guy behind the counter as the witness Morelli described at the scene of Ziggy's death.
They follow him to a moored boat, and Morelli finds traces of heroin that link the boat to the illegal drug traffic run by a local Jamaican gang. They then follow the trail to a freezer truck, where they find oil drums containing the bodies of Carmen and the witness. Morelli despairs, knowing that this has practically eliminated the chances of him clearing his name.
Evanovich, Janet - Stephanie Plum 01 - One for the Money
Stephanie advocates calling the police, but Morelli refuses, tossing in a remark about her ineptitude as a bounty hunter that stings her into locking him in the freezer truck and driving it to the police station to hand him over. Returning home, Stephanie is held at gunpoint by Jimmy Alpha, who she had taken to be a helpless bystander.
Ruefully, he tells her that managing a champion boxer like Ramirez is every promoter's dream, but Ramirez has become a sadistic psychopath , and Alpha can't control him any longer. Alpha has tried to "diversify" by using his earnings from Ramirez to buy other businesses, such as the butcher shop, but was lured into using his boat and his businesses to assist in the Jamaicans' drug trade.University of California Press.
Should our services meet your satisfaction, your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Something similar happens when we turn to the role-playing issue. Things get even worse as Jane repeatedly shows up to humiliate him and then get away again.
