I have the complete collection of all 261 of the Nick Carter books. They were written by many different authors so I've found a few that are a bit different but the vast majority are consistent. This is pure escapism. So they should be read with a receptive mind. If you like spy / action / sex. then you should enjoy any of the Nick Carter books. If you're looking for real involved books, like Bourne Identity, then this is not for you.
