NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, bestselling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O’Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line.
Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable—criminals.
Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar—and against the clock—to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate’s dad.
A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's The Job.

Brick hits all the right notes in his reading of this entertaining collaboration between authors Evanovich and Goldberg. Con man extraordinaire Nicolas Fox and intrepid FBI agent Kate O'Hare are back for a new and exciting caper. Carter Grove, former White House chief of staff and current head of a deadly private security firm, has stolen a priceless artifact from the Smithsonian. It is up to Fox and O'Hare, and an eclectic group of cohorts, to pull off a master heist, the failure of which will cause near incalculable diplomatic damage. Brick brings the perfect tone to his narration, walking the line between suspense and comedy, keeping listeners on the edge of their seats, while throwing them plenty of chuckles in the process. With seemingly little effort he brings individuality to each character whether it's a self-absorbed method actor or an arrogant, murderous villain. A Bantam hardcover.
Love these characters! Can't get enough of Nick and Kate! Waiting for the next one.......

This is a great series....had never read any of Janet Evanovich or Lee Goldberg's books...but The Heist and The Chase are a great read...can't wait for the next in this series and hope there are many more. I am reading my first Stephanie Plum book and enjoying it but not quite as much as I did these....
