Earlier this week, Wicked Business, the second book in Janet Evanovich’s Lizzy Tucker and Diesel series hit bookstores nationwide and seems destined for the best seller list. But fans of Evanovich’s other best-selling books, featuring bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, have reason to celebrate, too. Random House announced on June 21 that there will be four more books in the Stephanie Plum series. According to OmniMystery News:
Already under contract is Notorious Nineteen, set for release in November 2012. No word on the breakdown between numbered and between-the-numbers titles.
The publisher also announced that Evanovich will team up with Lee Goldberg—author of the “Mr. Monk” novels based on the USA Network series Monk—to write a new book series. According to the publicity materials, it will feature FBI agent Kate Winslow and international fugitive Danny Cole and will be “a thrilling combination of crime, romance, and adventure.” The first in the series is scheduled for publication in Fall 2013.
