The Job by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

Fox and O’Hare,  Book 3

Synopsis: 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.

Review: I always take a great pleasure in following each adventure with Kate and Nick. Oh yes because it must be said that our authors always have lots of ideas for them in store. Our two characters form a wonderful duo and each of their investigations and scams are always very elaborate. And this time our two heroes will do everything to bring down an important drug baron.

Indeed, a case will fall on them, something that can only intrigue our two protagonists as they will have to face a real villain. The drop would be a great achievement but nobody knows what identity he has taken, or even the face he may have, and finding him seems a feat. Fortunately for them the man is a chocolate and treasures lover. Besides, regarding chocolate, I wonder if it is true that this kind of food can reach such prices. I’m pretty impressed because I did not know that it was possible. But in all cases our heroes will team up again, posing for newlyweds archaeologists trying to sell a lost treasure. But the man they’re facing is far more dangerous than those they have faced before and his right arm, a crazy woman and a torture lover could see through them.

I had a great time with this new survey and it was a real pleasure to see our small group. As always their scam is impressive and it was very interesting to see the whole thing. They may have a role a little less to play in this investigation, but their intervention is always required. I loved to see how the two trust each other whatever they might say. Their attraction and tension throughout the volumes is really intriguing and I admit that I’m curious to see when they finally will face their feelings. They both play a cat and mouse game. We know that Kate’s feelings are sincere but it is quite difficult to understand what Nick wants, even if their attraction is undeniable. But it is true that I am eager to see where all this will evolve. I think our agent clearly explains the concerns of their possible relationship without Nick realizing it but nothing can be forgotten.

In all cases it was once again a very nice volume and I’m curious to see what they’ll do and what scam they will realize for our greatest pleasure. A good entertaining novel.

  1. Oh The Readers’ Den just recently reviewed a book from this series. I have a feeling this is one of those types that could get just as addictive as Sandra Brown’s or Linda Howard’s.

    Looking forward to your reviews of the rest of the books!

  2. I still haven’t started this series yet Melliane (or even read anything by this author) but I keep hearing good things so I know I need to eventually set everything aside the just READ THIS SERIES! lol

  3. I have not read any of her books – doesn’t she have another series (Stephanie Plum, I think) that’s up to like 21 books now?! She’s a machine, like every time I turn around she seems to have a new book. Not sure she’s my genre though, but I’m glad you are having fun 😀
