Charming con man Nicolas Fox and dedicated FBI agent Kate O'Hare secretly take down world’s most-wanted and untouchable felons, next job Violante, the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn’t know what he looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick knows his tastes in gourmet chocolate.
From Nashville to Lisbon back alleys, from Istanbul rooftops to Thames, they chase clues to lookalike thefts. Pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard Reyna holding Kate hostage and a Portuguese enforcer getting advice from an ancestor's pickled head, they again call driver Willie for ship, actor Boyd for one-eyed Captain Bridger, special effects carpenter Tom, her father Jake - retired Special Forces, and his talent - machete-wielding Somali pirate Billy Dee. This could be their biggest job - if they survive.


Hi my loyal people. Here is a new book review brought to you by me! I finished another book but I am proud to say to all of you that the reason it took so long was for a good reason. As you can see I have changed my blog site from Blogger to WordPress which I am great to say is finally up and working. I hope that you all like it better now. Anyways back to the reason for this blog post!

Nick Fox and Kate O’Hare are back with an awesome book. This on, in my opinion, is one of the best books with Nick and Kate in them. These two are like the most dynamic duo that I love to read and watch on the television in shows or in the movies. We have an FBI Agent who has to be teamed up with Nick Fox while letting everyone think that she is out looking for him, because she is the only one that can catch him, but in reality is working with him for the FBI. I mean it’s pretty awesome and something that you don’t get to see every day.

Plus the two of them are hilarious together. I mean we have the humor of the two of them together plus the sexual frustration that they both give each other and it just makes it into an awesome book.

So in this one Kate and Nick catch at least two baddies, well unintentionally, as the first one was trying to get Nick’s attention and not the FBI’s. I also love the fact that no matter what we always, mostly, see the same team members they hire to help with the cons along with having Kate’s dad. Though I am starting to think that maybe Kate’s dad and Nick have been talking to each other secretly since they almost always agree on everything.

I am giving this book five stars rating since it’s soo funny and kept me guessing and the whole time I was working on my new blog site with my mom I couldn’t help but think “What is going on with Nick and Kate in this book?” Or my favorite “What type of con is Nick going to pull for this one”. I always end up thinking of these things whenever I read a Fox and O’Hare novel because of the fact that these two are so funny and so good at keeping me on my toes. And sometimes making me wonder if the con will actually work and that they will get the bad guy that they are after.

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by

About Janet Evanovich

Janet Evanovich

Janet’s Bio (quoted from her website)

When I was a kid I spent a lot of time in LaLa Land. La la Land is like an out-of-body experience –while your mouth is eating lunch your mind is conversing with Captain Kirk. Sometimes I’d pretend to sing opera. My mother would send me to the grocery store down the street, and off I’d go, caterwauling at the top of my lungs. Before the opera thing I went through a horse stage where I galloped everywhere and made holes in my Aunt Lena’s lawn with my hooves. Aunt Lena was a good egg. She understood that the realities of daily existence were lost in the shadows of my looney imagination.After graduation from South River High School, I spent four years in the Douglass College art department, honing my ability to wear torn Levis, learning to transfer cerebral excitement to primed canvas. Painting beat the heck out of digging holes in lawns, but it never felt exactly right. It was frustrating at best, excruciating at worst. My audience was too small. Communication was too obscure. I developed a rash from pigment.

Somewhere down the line I started writing stories. The first story was about the pornographic adventures of a fairy who lived in a second rate fairy forest in Pennsylvania. The second story was about …well never mind, you get the picture.

I sent my weird stories out to editors and agents and collected rejection letters in a big cardboard box. When the box was full I burned the whole damn thing, crammed myself into pantyhose and went to work for a temp agency.

Four months into my less than stellar secretarial career, I got a call from an editor offering to buy my last mailed (and heretofore forgotten) manuscript. It was a romance written for the now defunct Second Chance at Love line, and I was paid a staggering $2,000.

With my head reeling from all this money, I plunged into writing romance novels full time, saying good-by, good riddance to pantyhose and office politics. I wrote series romance for the next five years, mostly for Bantam Loveswept. It was a rewarding experience, but after twelve romance novels I ran out of sexual positions and decided to move into the mystery genre.

I spent two years retooling –drinking beer with law enforcement types, learning to shoot, practicing cussing. At the end of those years I created Stephanie Plum. I wouldn’t go so far as to say Stephanie is an autobiographical character, but I will admit to knowing where she lives.

It turns out I’m a really boring workaholic with no hobbies or special interests. My favorite exercise is shopping and my drug of choice is Cheeze Doodles.

I read comic books and I only watch happy movies. I motivate myself to write by spending my money before I make it. And when I grow up I want to be just like Grandma Mazur.
