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.

A fun listen

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have written an excellent and fun book in The Chase. Having Scott Brick, my favorite narrator, read it adds to the pleasure of listening. I hope Evanovick and Goldberg will keep the same two main characters and make this the first of a series.

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!

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.

Laugh out Loud funny and keeps your attention

Would you consider the audio edition of The Chase to be better than the print version?

Having not read this book in print I don't feel I can answer this fairly, but it is a great listen and, I'm sure, a great read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite characters are both Kate and Nicholas - and Boyd Capwell!! O'Hare and Fox for obvious reasons - the dichotomy, the chemistry and their combined creative imaginative ways they look at problems. Boyd Capwell for his talent and his serious commitment to his craft!

Which scene was your favorite?

The plane scene was my favorite.

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

It's all about the chase.

Any additional comments?

none.

A Team Part 2

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 read

Did not like the reader. It is better when the reader uses two different sounds for boy and girl. Also he makes every line sound sexy or sensual. Weird.

I hate this narrator

Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and/or Scott Brick?

I would with a different narrator. I have read every book Janet Evanovich has written. She normally uses Lorelei King as a narrator, who in my opinion is the best audio narrator around. She can do any voice. This guy can't really do voices. It is hard to distinguish between characters. I really hate this guy's voice.

Would you be willing to try another book from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg ? Why or why not?

Yes. with a different narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

No characterization-his voice creeps me out. I just don't like him and I am sad that I bought two books narrated by him. I will definitely return one and never buy another book narrated by him.

Great listen!

I actually liked this one better than the first in the series. And Scott Brick knocked it out of the park again. His consistent individualization of all the different characters and their respective personalities made it easy to not only follow who was speaking but for these characters to become real to me. This book was well written and as suspenseful as any book Ive read in this genre. These authors do great work together. I could see this series being made into a movie that I would thoroughly enjoy watching. I will definitely read more of these authors' collaboration. I highly recommend this book. Happy Reading!
