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.

Mystery with sexual tension, a good combination!
I liked the banter between the main characters, and the father who is always waiting in the wings.
My first time, I enjoyed him very much!
Made me laugh!
I can so see this as I TV series, I can just see Sandra Bullock in this series!
I can't wait to listen to book #2. I was looking for another book series like Evanovich's Plum series to take up time in between books and I have found it.
I liked the independence of the character and the sense of adventure.
I loved the boat scene where she fired the big gun.
Love this new series! It is funny, well-written and very endearing. The story teller is also fabulous!
If you enjoyed watching Leverage and White Collar on Television, and you don't mind that those plot scenarios are regurgitated then you will love this book. Sadly, I do and was disappointed.
This book's story reminded me of the A-Team. Totally unbelievable characters and "mission," and yet it was a fun read.
I am an avid Janet Evanovich fan. I didn't know if I would like these new characters of hers, nor the fact that she was writing a book with someone else. I am happy to say I was worried for nothing. I love, love, love these new books and their characters. I love ongoing characters because I feel as though I know them and the things they've already done/achieved. I have heard them all, and am waiting with baited breath for a new book to come out. Evanovich and Goldberg, you're not writing quick enough, and keep up the great work and storylines.
I just love all the characters involved. How they interact, etc.
All of the characters are fun. Love the idea of ex navy seal turned fbi agent is unique.
The plot was intriguing and kept me listening.
He has the tones and nuances down perfect
I like Janet E. in general, but I think this is one of her better books. Not quite so outlandish which actually made it a better story. I'm getting the second book in the series because I enjoyed this first one so much.
Scott Brick is always great.
Grandma who spends too much time in her car. The books keep me happy and sane!
Yes! The plot is so detailed, and convoluted, that it definitely requires a second (and now third) listen.
I was amazed at the twists in the plot. The planning of the different cons required some concentration to understand everything that was going on.
I LOVE Scott Brick! He did a great job with the different characters. The scene with the corpse flower was spot on!
I'm sure people passing me on the road thought I had lost my mind in several places! It is funny, plain ole funny at times.
I was hesitant to buy this since the last few Plum books have been less than what I expect from Ms. Evanovich. I guess maybe having a co-writer added some new energy to her writing. The plot is NOT at all believable, but it is intriguing and at times laugh out loud funny.
Fun, outlandish, crime drama, but this is one that would be better to read yourself than to listen to. Scott Brick is a great narrator but why would they pick him to narrate a book by and about a woman? The main charactor completely loses all personality when read by Mr. Brick.
Not in the audio book version.
Pace, maybe... Personality and charactor, no... I was actually glad when it ended.
I see this as the first in a series. But, please, find a more suitable narrator!
