The Job Book Cover The Job
Fox and O'Hare #3
Janet Evanovich

Charming con man Nicolas Fox and dedicated FBI agent Kate O'Hare secretly take down world’s most-wanted and untouchable felons, next job Violante, the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn’t know what he looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick knows his tastes in gourmet chocolate.

From Nashville to Lisbon back alleys, from Istanbul rooftops to Thames, they chase clues to lookalike thefts. Pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard Reyna holding Kate hostage and a Portuguese enforcer getting advice from an ancestor's pickled head, they again call driver Willie for ship, actor Boyd for one-eyed Captain Bridger, special effects carpenter Tom, her father Jake - retired Special Forces, and his talent - machete-wielding Somali pirate Billy Dee. This could be their biggest job - if they survive.

What a ride!!! This was a fun book!

Kate and Nick are well rounded characters that, at this point, are three books into their story. I really liked Kate. She was a badass and smart as a whip. Nate was a charmer and as slick as they come! I totally had a crush on him by the halfway mark. But Jake was my favorite. He stole the show! Jake was Kate’s dad and I loved every minute we got of him! In fact, the entire ensemble was fantastic! I connected with each character and found myself ordering the first two books before this one was finished with this one.

I am a sucker for a good mystery and this book did not disappoint. Following the clues with Kate and Nick was a true adventure! I laughed out loud and tried to out con the con. The banter between Nick and Kate is priceless.

“I’m starved. Where’s the mini bar?”

“This room doesn’t have a mini bar.”

Nick kicked his shoes off and stretched out on the bed, hands behind his head. “We need to change hotels. I have standards.”

“You need to change hotels. I’m fine. I have no standards.”

Nick grinned and crooked his finger at her. “Come here. I like a woman with no standards.”

On top of the fun and almost Ocean’s Eleven feel to the story, the humor was king of this book. I loved how it made me laughed! The balance between dialogue, action, mystery and humor was perfect! This was my first Evanovich book, but it will not be my last!

4 stars and a dirty martini for my first Evanovich novel! Cheers!
