From Janet Evanovich, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, best-selling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.
FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.
Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail - particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman...even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: He convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Special Agent Kate O’Hare.
Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work...if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.

The female characters sound stereotypical, and the male protagonist sounds like an unbelievably arrogant ass- makes any potential chemistry unbelievable.
This is a fun police story ,a predictable catch the bad guy take down. A guy and a gal hooking up to go on the hunt for the thief. Some interesting characters help them out. Scott Brick's narration is great as always and makes the story even more fun. A good quick read. Janice
light, fun, no brainer. I enjoyed it and I haven't enjoyed many books lately. I wasn't expecting much, and it delivered a bit more than that. I may get the next one when I need a break from Mc Carthy or the like.
Yes, it's a fun read. Entertaining - and doesn't take itself too seriously.
Any of the other books in the Evanovich/Goldberg series.
The scene where Nick dives off the roof to get away from Kate. It was funny and thrilling.
NICOLAS FOX MAKES BEING BAD SO MUCH FUN.
For a die hard FBI agent and former Navy SEAL, striking a deal and working with a known fugitive was going to stretch Special Agent Kate O'Hare way out side of her comfort zones. Having the talent to get what he wanted made Nicolas (Nick) Fox the perfect man to help do what the FBI and other law enforcement agencies where not allowed to do, get some of the most elusive and wealthy embezzlers.
Book 1..... What a set up for a multiple book series. The concept leaves room for unlimited books, the combination of Janet Evanovich (writer of the Stephanie Plum series) and Lee Goldberg (writer of the Monk series) seems to lend to a interesting and detailed Con game full of interesting characters and fun international travel.
This book was great and the narrator did a fine job. What I don't get, though, is why the narrator was male. The main character is female.
