Product Description

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.

I have officially found my comfort series. That series that, you wouldn't mind at all if it never ends. This series is so good! The upcoming books are a continuation to the previous storyline but in actuality, like the Stephanie Plum series, you aren't really in desperate need to find out what happens next, but when a new book comes out, you know you're going to have a crazy and fun time reading that book. I love chick lits for that reason. I picked up The Chase a month ago and I loved it. The humor in this series is just unbeatable. I love love the two main characters, Kate and Nick, and I love their dialogues together. It is funny enough but at the same time it isn't exaggerated or eye roll inducing. These two authors really know how to tackle humor in books but at the same time deliver fantastic characters, memorable side characters, as well as a very deliciously addicting plot.

I think what I really enjoy in these books are all the elaborate cons of Nick. With every new book, you would think the plot formula would be similar and boring.. yes they have a target at the beginning of each book, yes they come up with a plan to bring him/her down, and yes, in the end they do bring him/her down.. however everything else differs from there. I'm a huge fan of shows like The Mentalist, smart shows with smart characters that pretty much outsmart everyone else. That is how I picture Nick and all his cons.

In this particular book, Kate and Nick want to bring down the ex White House Chief of Staff. He runs an organization called BlackRhino which is pretty much mercenary on demand and owns many stolen artifacts and paintings. The elaborate plan that they came up with is right now my favorite out of the three books.

So I'm finding I really like the Fox and O'Hare series from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. The second installment, The Chase, was just as good as the first. It's a nice change from the Stephanie Plum series I'm used to from Evanovich, and I can see this series having legs.

FBI agent Kate O'Hare and con artist Nicolas Fox team up again to take down a nasty character who is hiding a piece of art that could cause an international incident if not returned. He's a former White House chief of staff (with plenty of contacts) and a ton of money from running a security firm known for their ruthlessness. He has an ancient Chinese chicken sculpture that is thought to be in the Smithsonian. The US is going to return the item, but the statue in the museum isn't the real thing. Fox and O'Hare need to pull off a swap under multiple layers of security and virtually no lead time to make it all work. As far as Fox is concerned, it's not any fun if it's not "impossible". O'Hare is certain that there's no way she'll come out of this without a prison term... either in the States or China.

I really like the intricate cons that Evanovich and Goldberg set up for the characters. It's a constant cliffhanger as things are always on the edge of breaking down completely in a way that will kill off one or both of them. O'Hare is great as a tough ex-military cop who is constantly fighting her feelings about what is right and wrong (as well as whether she is falling for Fox). Fox is a smooth con man who is extremely likable and can weave some great adventures. Add the sexual tension between the two, and it's a lot of fun.

I'm set to read the third book in the series, and I really hope that this collaboration between two very good authors continues for a very long time.

"Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and we're tired of hearing promises that we know they'll never keep." - Ray Davies

"The beast for me is greed. Whether you read Dante, Swift, or any of these guys, it always boils down to the same thing: the corruption of the soul." - Ben Nicholson

Nick and Kate are a mismatched pair. A world famous thief and con artist, paired with a solid, principled FBI Agent. Wow. I immediately went to Neal Caffrey on "White Collar", a television show where a world famous thief and con artist is paired with a solid, principled FBI agent after the thief is caught by said agent. The FBI Agent in White Collar, Peter Burke, is male, a married man with a gorgeous wife, Elizabeth and a yellow lab – the perfect FBI family. But with Kate, of course, you have the possibility of a “romance” unlike with Nick and Neal. Having captured Nick, Kate’s job now is to partner up with Nick and solve highly complex white collar crimes.

In this case, the job is to steal back the famous Bronze Rooster originally stolen from the century-old Zodiac fountain in the Imperial Gardens of the Old Summer Palace in Beijing – and later stolen from the Smithsonian. Oh, the government knows it was stolen – they replaced it with a nearly exact replica to hide the theft and hide any embarrassment and political strife caused by the theft.

Problem is, now the Chinese government wants it back. And the man who had it stolen, and hidden away in his underground bunker filled with items from the most infamous art thefts in history? None other than Carter Grove, ex-chief of staff to the previous President of the United States.
