Janet Evanovich, author of the blockbuster Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, writer for the Monk television show, team up once again for the fifth book in their rollicking, New York Times best-selling Fox and O'Hare series!
Nicolas Fox, international con man, thief, and one of the top 10 fugitives on the FBI's most-wanted list, has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn't know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn't long before Nick's covert partner, Special Agent Kate O'Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man.
The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex-Serbian military officer. He's plotting a crime that will net him billions...and cost thousands of American lives.
Nick and Kate have to mount the most daring, risky, and audacious con they've ever attempted to save a major US city from a catastrophe of epic proportions. Luckily they have the help of an eccentric out-of-work actor; a bandit who does his best work in the sewers; and Kate's dad, Jake. The pressure's on for Nick and Kate to make this work - even if they have to lay their lives on the line.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Evanovich and Goldberg have another winner! Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare are at it again, this time in Europe. FBI agent Kate O'Hare and her ex-military special forces soldier dad Jake get lots of father-daughter bonding time using explosives and big guns. Jake's addition to the crew a couple of novels back pays off again. The rest of the crew from California are also in on the con. Nick Fox remains the ultimate con man while running a con against a really evil Serbian con man and killer.
I love this series. It is great fun. Having Scott Brick narrate these wonderful novels adds to the enjoyment.
This is one of my favorite in the series. The plot is fast paced. It doesn't have the overly complicated scams of the previous books, well, it's a complicated scenario but more interesting. The double and triple crossing was great. The characters, once again, are highly entertaining. This one had one scene with the secondary characters that made me laugh out loud. Plus, there's some bonus steamy scenes that add to the whole caper. I'd recommend it to fans of the series and new comers.
if you've listened to from the beginning of the series your going to love this one. great action and wonderful characters plus some of your favorites . love this series
An other great book, a must have for your collection . It keeps you on the edge of your seat. The narrative is through the roof.
GREAT JOB JANET!!!
Can't wait for the next one.
With almost 800 books in my library, I am an experienced listener. I appreciate a well written good story. I am pretty critical of trash.
I guess there is a huge following of not very sophisticated readers who have the ability to create the appearance of a really successful series. True - it is very successful for followers who like shallow parodies that are silly instead of funny.There is no ability to engage or care, no suspense, no romance, no character depth. This is a heads up to intelligent readers.
another great Fox and O'Hare another great Fox and O'Hara tail truly a Fun romp in Europe. great new characters and returning favorites
I go through a lot of audiobooks. A lot. I work a desk job that is fairly monotonous and if I didn't have books to listen to, my brain would melt. That said, of all the books I've listened to within the past few months (~20) I remember the details of this one much more than others. And I would listen to it again, which I don't do often.
I love the relationship between the protags. I love a good back and forth, when-will-they story and this series (and this book) has just the right balance of tug-o-war, humor, and suspense. It's an updated version of your classic caper and I have always loved a good caper.
fun relaxing ,players are terrific
always does love the romance
the kiss and more..any thing with her fathr
just njoy it all
i wouldlike to get more on an early time period
I understand that these books follow a strict formula. They are dependable and that's part of their charm. With that said, this book felt lazy to the point of "copy and paste". Worse actually.
This episode had no great con. No unexpected twist. It had nothing. Boyd has become a tired character. Cosmo was not funny at all. The entire this was flat.
I would only recommend this book if you're maxed out on credits and need to use one before you lose it.
