The Job, A Fox and O’Hare Novel by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg; 2014; $28.00; 289 pages; Bantam Books, New York, NY; 978-0-345-54312-7; checked out from Multnomah County Library, Holgate; 3/26/15-3/27/15

Why did I pick this up?  Because I really enjoyed the first two books in the series.

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare and her partner international con man and art thief Nick Fox team up again to bring down a high profile cartel boss.  Using a crew that we are getting familiar with they first have to find him, since he has disappeared among rumors that he has completely changed his appearance.  He has surrounded himself with a crew including one very bad assed woman as his bodyguard.  The team first has to lure him out of hiding and play on his interest and vanities to take him down and destroy him financially.  The chemistry between Nick and Kate is really great as are the supporting characters.

Did I enjoy it?  If you want me to read or watch something tell me there is a elaborate heist and/or con involved and you have hooked me.

Grade A

What is with the title of the book?  Janet Evanovich is also the author of a series of novels starring a character named Stephanie Plum.  After twenty some books (which are all essentially the same) Stephanie hasn’t grown at all as a character, I hope the same fate doesn’t befall Kate and Nick.
