The act of love by Howard Jacobson( Book )
4 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Felix Quinn calls himself a happy man. He runs one of the oldest antiquarian bookshops in London and his wife, Marisa, is unfaithful to him. All husbands, Felix maintains, secretly want their wives to be unfaithful to them. Felix hasn't always thought this way. From the moment of his first boyhood rejection, surviving the shattering effects of love and jealousy had been the study of his life. But an event occurs while he is honeymooning with Marisa in Florida that changes all that. At a stroke he goes from dreading the thought of someone else's hands on the woman he loves to thinking about nothing else. From now on he is jealousy's slave and will know no peace until his wife betrays him, and then betrays him again. But how can it be called betrayal if it is what he wants? ... This is a story about agony-addiction; but it is also about the nature of desire itself, the exquisiteness of loss, and the universality of the impulse - whether a jealous husband's or an avid reader's - to play the voyeur, to probe and question, to want to know, day after day, page after page, who is doing what to whom and what will happen next

Mistake #1: Dickie Orr. Stephanie was married to him for about fifteen minutes before she caught him cheating on her with her arch-nemesis Joyce Barnhardt. Another fifteen minutes after that Stephanie filed for divorce, hoping to never see either one of them again. Mistake #2: Doing favors for super bounty hunter Carlos Manoso (a.k.a. Ranger). Ranger needs her to meet with Dickie and find out if he's doing something shady. Turns out, he is. Turns out, he's also back to doing Joyce Barnhardt. And it turns out Ranger's favors always come with a price ... Mistake #3: Going completely nutso while doing the favor for Ranger, and trying to apply bodily injury to Dickie in front of the entire office. Now Dickie has disappeared and Stephanie is the natural suspect in his disappearance. Is Dickie dead? Can he be found? And can Stephanie Plum stay one step ahead in this new, dangerous game? Joe Morelli, the hottest cop in Trenton, NJ is also keeping Stephanie on her toes -- and he may know more than he's saying about many things in Stephanie's life. It's a cat-and-mouse game for Stephanie Plum, where the ultimate prize might be her life

Rez.: Stephanie Plum arbeitet doch wieder als Kopfgeldjägerin. In der 12. Folge (Originaltitel "Twelve sharp", zuletzt "Chaos Queen", BA 10/07) braucht das Büro neue Mitarbeiter, und die fette Lula wird Bandsängerin, Gelegenheit, um nach bekanntem Muster reichlich schräge Vögel vorzustellen. Im Wesentlichen geht es aber um den supersexy Ranger, denn ein Mann gibt sich als Carlos Manoso (so heißt Ranger) aus, hat auch geheiratet, sich aber schnell aus dem Staub gemacht, worauf seine Frau Stephanie bedroht. Dann wird Rangers Tochter entführt. Stephanie muss nicht nur ihre Grandma Mazur von einer Karriere als Popsängerin in Lulas Band abhalten, sondern auch noch ihrem Freund Ranger helfen. Immerhin erfahren wir, dass Ranger sie nie heiraten würde und dass Stephanie und ihr auch ganz sexy Cop Morelli sich lieben. Weil er schon mehrfach bei Stephanies Eltern den wöchentlichen Schmorbraten versuchen durfte, gelten die beiden eigentlich schon als verlobt. Bewährte Unterhaltung. (Angela Graf)

She's accidentally destroyed a dozen cars. She's a target for every psycho and miscreant this side of the Jersey Turnpike. Her mother's convinced she'll end up dead ... or worse, without a man. She's Stephanie Plum, and she kicks butt for a living (well, she thinks it sounds good to put it that way). It begins as an innocent trip to the deli-mart, on a quest for nachos. But Stephanie Plum and her partner, Lula, are clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time. A robbery leads to an explosion, which leads to the destruction of yet another car. It would be just another day in the life of Stephanie Plum, except that she becomes the target of a gang -- and of an even scarier, more dangerous force that comes to Trenton. With super bounty hunter Ranger acting more mysteriously than ever (and the tension with vice cop Joe Morelli getting hotter), she finds herself with a decision to make: how to protect herself and where to hide while on the hunt for a killer known as the Junkman. There's only one safe place, and it has Ranger's name all over it -- if she can find it. And if the Junkman doesn't find her first. With Lula riding shotgun and Grandma Mazur on the loose, Stephanie Plum is racing against the clock
