The debut of a fine new series. Authors Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have combined their talents to give us FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare and her new partner, con man Nick Fox. It’s especially hard for Kate because she’s spent the last five years chasing Fox and when she finally catches him, he becomes her partner.
Their goal is to chase down criminals, the super wealthy, gotten so because of their own cons ripping off folks life-savings. Their first assignment is Derek Griffin, an investment banker that ripped off five hundred million, then disappeared as the Federal government was closing in.
Only one caveat. Fox is still a wanted man. If another agency picks him up, oh well…If Kate is caught helping him…As they used to say on Mission: Impossible, “the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.” In other words, jail time.
Not a god plan…for Kate anyway. But she takes it.
Look forward to future volumes in this series. I’ve not read any of Evanovich’s work previous, but will start to work soon. I’m sure both authors will gain new fans from the other’s side as with me.
