Publisher's Summary

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, New York Times best-selling 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.

    "Love the humor, but kind of the same story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Chase the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy listening to Janet Evanovich's books. However, they are starting to have the same story lines and that is getting a little old.

    "Entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - the book is an easy listen and entertaining.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author keeps the story moving along and does not go off on sub plots or dive in to drab details.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were a couple of twists and turns, but the ending was worthy of the build-up


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Oceans 11 meets born identity


    Any additional comments?

    The only negative would be the narrator. He did a good job, but you need a few chapters to get used to his style of reading. Almost like he is reluctant to be doing this if that makes sense?

    "Janet Evanovich rewrites "White Collar""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. It was easy to listen to and the story moved along at a brisk pace.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was a little predictable. The valuable object, a rooster head is identified, our hero's are set to steal it from the big bad guy, they accomplished the task with nary a hitch but a little help from some humorous side-kicks and the problems ensue.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    This is where this audiobook falls short. Mr. Brick is an excellent narrator but he is all wrong for this story. Kate O' Hare is the main character and the voice of the story. The narrator should be a woman.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did find a couple of chuckles.

    "Addicted"
    What did you love best about The Chase?

    I loved the interactions and growth of the characters. These books are so much better than the last third of the numbered Stefanie Plum books which I have stopped reading.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, this book definitely had many twists and turns. It could have ended several times but kept on going without a hitch.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only listened to the fist book in the series but am happy to listen to more.


    Any additional comments?

    I do wish the authors would write more than he said, she said. How about Kate shouted or Nick calmly explained, etc?

    "Fox and O'Hare are a great treat!"

    I am loving this new series. The problem is that now that I've had a taste, I'm concerned the authors can't write new books fast enough to satisfy my appetite. Chemistry, intelligence, and fun, I want more!

    Good read. Lots of action, suspense, and drama.
    Smart characters and not too much sex. OK ending.

    Story
    "Cardboard Characters, Wooden Dialog, Dumb Plot"
    What disappointed you about The Chase?

    The story. I am a great fan of caper stories, like Topkapi or Day of the Jackal. The Evanovich/Goldberg characters and events would need to be fleshed out more to become cardboard, much less believable. All of the heros have impossibly superhuman knowledge and capabilities. They drive a plot that is so wildly improbable that it defies involvement. The dialog needs considerable improvement to become wooden


    What could Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It is hard to see how it would be within their abilities.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end.


    What character would you cut from The Chase?

    Where to begin.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration does as much as possible given the impossible story. Some scenes and descriptions are plausible, until the characters are brought into them and the plot creaks into action. This was my first--and needless to say my last--foray into this series.

    Has The Chase turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The accent was far too distracting, I couldn't finish it.


    What character would you cut from The Chase?

    No idea as I couldn't listen to it

    The Heist was like reading an A-Team script. This one was even more unbelievable and a little less enjoyable. But the series is still fun and I look forward to #3.

    Fun follow up to the first Fox/O'Hare book. Scott Brick always does a good job and puts you right in the story.
