The Job

A Fox and O'Hare Novel

Janet Evanovich, Goldberg Lee

He’s a charming con man and she’s a dedicated FBI agent, and they’re about to drive each other crazy . . . again!

The FBI had one demand when they secretly teamed up Special Agent Kate O’Hare with charming con man Nicolas Fox—bring down the world’s most-wanted and untouchable felons. This time it’s the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn’t know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate–loving drug lord.

From the streets of Nashville to the back alleys of Lisbon, from the rooftops of Istanbul to the middle of the Thames, Nick and Kate chase their mark. When they find themselves pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard and a Portuguese enforcer who gets advice from a pickled head, they decide it’s time to enlist some special talent—talent like a machete-wielding Somali pirate, a self-absorbed actor, an Oscar-winning special effects artist, and Kate’s father Jake, a retired Special Forces operative. Together they could help make this Fox and O’Hare’s biggest win yet . . . if they survive. (from Netgalley)

My Thoughts
FBI agent Kate O’Hare and con man Nick Fox are back together again to take down a well know drug lord. Unfortunately, he has had major plastic surgery to changes his looks. First they have to find him, and then they have to con him!

These O’Hare and Fox novels are such fun. Fast paced, witty and lots of action. There’s just that hint of attraction between Kate and Nick. I like the kooky characters that make up their con team. The scams that they need to pull off are usually a bit “out there” in their complexity and design, but this is part of what these stories so enjoyable. If you are looking for a light, entertaining read, make sure to check this out!

This is the third book in the O’Hare and Fox series and I look forward to reading more.
