This book surprised me by the twist and turns of the plot. I have read all of Janet Evanovich's Plum series which I enjoy for the wit and find this series to be much better. There is still a lot of eating and drinking in this series but there is also more plot and substance
I'm A serious fan of Janet Evanovich I have nearly all of her books I am also serious fan of Scott Brick. Half in love with the guys voice. this story was wonderful you are completely engage the entire time by the two main characters and, who wouldn't want a father who go to the ends of the earth for his daughter.
I really don't care for Scott Brick so I didn't enjoy the book as much as I wanted to. The reader for the Plum novels is terrific I would have preferred a female reader--almost anyone other than Brick. Story line was "Castle--lite."
Sometimes I am just looking for something to keep me company that is more interesting than what I have to be doung at the moment. It can't be emotionally absorbing or too convoluted or I can't choose what I am paying attention to in any given moment. Janet and her characters don't take themselves too seriously, so neither do I. Perfect for the purpose!
Think "Mission: Impossible" (the TV series) meets "Leverage" meets "The A-Team." The con and "The Heist" are on. Nick Fox is delicious. A charming con man with the brains and the charm to pull off any scheme. FBI Agent Kate O'Hare is smart, sexy, deadly. They are surrounded by a wonderful cast of characters: Willie, the sexy older woman who can drive any vehicle; Brad, a perfectionist actor who really gets into his roles; Tom, an average man who got swindled by the bank and enjoys a little payback; Chet, make up artist extraordinaire.
Once Kate finally catches Nick, he persuades the FBI to allow him to continue his cons on white collar crooks who the law can't seem to find or catch. With his band of merry men and women, he plots a con to catch up with Derrick Griffin, who stole $500 million and departed for parts unknown. The only one who knows his whereabouts is his lawyer. Thus begins the show.
I loved this book and have already bought "The Chase." Can't wait. It's rare that a book makes me laugh out loud, but this one did. I thought Dick Hill was the greatest reader ever, but Scott Brick sure is a close second. He is marvelous.
Hilarious Intriguing Characters
Nothing to compare to.
When her father came to rescue her on the island, it was a pretty funny scene.
Mr. Brick has a wonderful voice that bring the characters to life. I can visualize what each person looks like and their wonderful personalities.I look forward to listening to Mr. Brick.
I really look forward to listening to future books in this series.
