A stoner, an Instagram model, a Czech oligarch, and a missing unicorn. Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare have their work cut out for them in their weirdest, wildest adventure yet in this New York Times bestseller by Janet and Peter Evanovich.
Straight arrow FBI Agent Kate O'Hare always plays by the rules. Charming Con Man Nicholas Fox makes them up as he goes along. She thinks he's nothing but a scoundrel. He thinks she just needs to lighten up. They're working together to tackle the out-of-bounds cases ordinary FBI agents can't touch. And, their relationship? Well, there hasn't been so much explosive chemistry since Nitro was introduced to Glycerin.
Next on the docket: The mysterious disappearance of the Silicon Valley billionaire, known as the Big Kahuna. Kate's been assigned to find him but no one seems particularly keen on helping. His twenty-six year old adult actress wife-turned Instagram model wife and his shady Czech business partner are more interested in gaining control of his company. For that they need a dead body not a living Kahuna.
The only lead they have is the Kahuna's drop-out son, who's living the dream in Hawaii - if your dream is starting your day with the perfect wave and ending it with a big bowl of weed. To get close to the Kahuna's son, Kate and Nick go undercover as a married couple in the big wave, bohemian, surfer community of Paia, Maui. Living a laid back, hippy-dippy lifestyle isn't exactly in Kate's wheelhouse, but the only thing more horrifying is setting up house with Nick Fox, even if he does look pretty gnarly on a longboard. If they don't catch a break soon, waves aren't the only thing she's going to be shredding (or bedding).

Thys si the best book i ever read
What a let down
Gotta say up until now I have enjoyed anything written by Janet Evanovich. The Big Kahuna is a rare exception. I did not realize Lee Goldberg was not part of the writing team on this book. His presence and voice are sorely missed. The whole fun of these books comes from the weird and wacky crew Nick pulls together and the cons he plans for the bad guys! I love it when Nick and Kate win. I love Kate’s father and the “old guys network” he calls in to play a part with whatever the current caper is. I had to make myself continue to read this book and I must admit it was a struggle. I was b.o.r.e.d! The first 3/4 of the book reads like a travel brochure. Not fun at all. I gave 2 stars because there really was some action (finally!) but it didn’t come along until the final few chapters. Overall an extremely disappointing installment of the Fox and O’Hare series. Maybe the next one will be better.
Did they not read the earlier books?
I love the Fox and O’Hare series and have looked forward to this book for a long while. Sadly, it’s written as though the authors never even read the previous books. The characters are shallow shadows of their former selves who seem like strangers. Previous plot lines that needed to be pushed forward have been totally abandoned in favor of a story that meanders from a lackluster start to a completely boring and predictable finish. Wish I could get my money back, but rest assured I won’t buy another installment of this series until/unless Lee Goldberg returns to write it.
