Publisher's Summary

From Janet Evanovich, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, best-selling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.
FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.
Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail - particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman...even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: He convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Special Agent Kate O’Hare.
Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work...if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.

Evanovich, no longer trite--entertaining romp

I was one of the first Evanovich fans, and adored the self-depricating Stephanie Plum. As the novels were rolled out in a dizzying pace, they got more and more trite and cartoonish, until I felt like I was listening to a farce reminiscent of "The Simpsons".

So, I fully expected to dislike this book, as I had resolved never again to waste money on her books. Was I wrong! It must be the addition of Goldberg, not to mention Scott Brick's narration, that made this an entertaining heist romp from start to finish. No over-the-top cartoonish figures, and real action. Good move, Janet!

Not your typical Evanovich

If you are expecting a Stephanie Plum type story. Don't waste your credit. I for one, really enjoyed this book. I have listened to many books by Janet but burned out on Janet's humor and had not purchased any of her books over the past several years. I bought this book with a healthy dose of hesitation but I'm glad I did. I also have listened to so many books narrated by Scott Brick & have been a tad burned out with his style as well. Well, much to my surprise, this story is well presented by Scott and the storyline entertaining.
