He's a charming con man and she's a dedicated FBI agent, and they're about to drive each other crazy . . . again!
The FBI had one demand when they secretly teamed up Special Agent Kate O'Hare with charming con man Nicolas Fox - bring down the world's most-wanted and untouchable felons. This time it's the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn't know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate-loving drug lord.
From the streets of Nashville to the back alleys of Lisbon, from the rooftops of Istanbul to the middle of the Thames, Nick and Kate chase their mark. When they find themselves pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard and a Portuguese enforcer who gets advice from a pickled head, they decide it's time to enlist some special talent - talent like a machete-wielding Somali pirate, a self-absorbed actor, an Oscar-winning special effects artist, and Kate's father Jake, a retired Special Forces operative. Together they could help make this Fox and O'Hare's biggest win yet . . . if they survive.

I love espionage and detective thrillers but will listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I finally got around to listening to The Job, the only book in the Fox and O'Hare series I had not read. For those not familiar with the series Nick Fox is the world's most audacious con man and Kate O'Hare is the FBI agent who finally captured him. Fox is now working with the FBI running scams on dangerous criminals to bring them to justice. Kate's dad, a retired ex-military man with lots of borderline legal contacts, plays a major part. There is also Willie a 50ish woman who craves driving any vehicle on land, sea or air without training or a license, a talent bit part actor, and others.
Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg are both excellent writers with lost of good novels. The collaborate in this series. The icing on the cake is having Scott Brick narrate.
This book falls short in entertainment value compared to the other two books in the Fox and O'Hare series. The action parts were good. The con was detailed and dangerous. The part that is lacking is the relationship(s) building. All the interactions between the main characters, as well as the rest of the nutty crew, were too brief and inconsequential. In sum, the lack of further character development was unsatisfying. Though it earned a 2 with me, I'm still hooked and waiting for book 4.
The story caught my interest and was entertaining and at times funny. It wasn't roll on the floor type funny but it had enough humour mixed in with the plot to keep it light. Waiting for the next book!!
Wow . Fresh. Awesome
Quick paced and entertaining.
Perfect for this role
Love love love this new Evanovich/Goldberg Series. a winning combination.
I enjoy all the information that is gathered for this book.it truly helps to make the story more believable.
The narrator has a voice that is relaxing enjoyable he gives each character its own life and I can't say more than wow thank you so much.
