fast-paced adventure

After reading this hilarious, fun story, I want to start at the beginning of the series and read them in order. The tight-knit band of cops and robbers works to achieve their goals, bending truth and the rules as they go. Witty dialogue, quirky characters, and international art theft combine in this fast-paced adventure by Evanovich and Goldberg. Fans of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum will enjoy Kate. ( )

If you're looking for a fun story that's a mashup of 'Remington Steele', 'Burn Notice', and 'The Thomas Crown Affair', this is it. The TV and film comparisons are valid both for thematic reasons and borrowed plot lines. There's a Federal agent working both sides of the law. An art thief who's never who or where he's supposed to be. Almost every chapter is a different art theft or con. Numerous references to fictional characters and places are sprinkled liberally throughout the story.

Just like a television movie, none of the story makes any sense when submitted to any scrutiny. The capers are paper thin. The characters are cardboard flat. Real motivation is missing in action. And yet, like a television movie, it's fast-paced, colorful, and eye-catching. There are plenty of twists and turns, but the reader is never lost or left behind.

Pick this up for a read on a plane trip or sitting on the beach and the minutes will fly by. It gets four stars for delivering on that promise.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review.

I love Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg together. This is such a fun series with Kate O'Hare "chasing" Nick Fox all over the world. Kate is getting close to crossing a line she might not be able to come back from and I am here for it. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

Is the plot substantially different from any of the other books in the Fox and O'Hare series? Not really. But sometimes, it's nice to know what to expect in a book series. When I'm looking for a fast-paced, adventure filled read, I know I can count on this series. It's a solid thriller.

I love stories about heists and cons, so this book was right up my alley. The mystery component of this book isn't particularly pronounced in this book, it's more like a cat-and-mouse chase.

But, I did enjoy seeing Nick and Kate going on this chase. I liked seeing them work with their associates to pull of the con, and I liked seeing how the puzzle pieces of their plan were put together. The banter, the push and pull between Nick and Kate is particularly great in this book.

The violence in this book is pretty on par with other books in the series. If you've ever watched Indiana Jones, the level of violence, and the realism of the book in general, is similar to that. It's not gory, but there is quite a bit of violence - after all, they are dealing with criminals and Kate is an FBI agent. There is one scene that gets a bit graphic in terms of romance, but it is brief.

This book works as a standalone, in that you can follow and enjoy the book without reading previous installations in the series. However, to better understand the relationships between the characters, it would be useful to start the series from the beginning.

This an early entry in the Fox and O'Hare series. At first I was sure I had read because I thought I had read all the books in the series. But once I started reading it, I wasn't sure. Of course if I had read it in 2015 that's a lot of years ago. So... I enjoyed reading it (again). The characters are charming, the plot was cute and it was a fast read. ( )
