Review: Janet Evanovich / Lee Goldberg "The Job" (Fox and O'Hare #3)
Publisher: Bantam Penguin Random House
My rating: 4/5
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.
Book #3 by the Evanovich / Goldberg team and they didn't disappoint. The storyline is interesting, witty, well thought through, and somewhat beyond believe. I loved it!
For me, it's in the small details of the different places in the story, the dialogue between Nick and Kate, especially interesting as they pretend to be married.
Characters from the previous books are back ... and IMHO, Kate's dad, Jake, nearly steals the show.
Fully recommend this one!
