Publisher's Summary

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, New York Times best-selling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O'Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line.

Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: Convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, Special Agent Kate O'Hare.

Together they'll go undercover to swindle and catch the world's most wanted - and untouchable - criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artefact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar - and against the clock - to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove's elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate's dad.

A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it'll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty's priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O'Hare.

I loved this

the narration was great. plot far fetched obviously but very entertaining. I do wish the 2 of them would finally get it together.

Not nearly as good as the first

I gave the first book a lot of leeway because it was fun but this book just didn't have the same zazz.

Firstly the phrase is "I couldn't care less." NOT "I could care less." which means you care to some degree. This cropped up repeatedly and really annoyed me. How it got past 2 writers and assumedly some editors IDK.

I also feel like having all your main characters pig out at McDonalds all the time and being super fit and attractive seems... disingenuous I guess. It just pulls you out of the story a bit.

The romance does that too. It could have been written by giggling teenagers for how badly it was handled.

The whackiness from before has been replaced by absurdity. Big explosions, bunker buster missiles, crazy coincidences than make no sense and lots of people being "knocked out" by severe blunt force trauma to the head. This, unfortunately, is just like American TV where only really, really bad guys die and everyone else gets tied up or knocked out. There is no interesting morally grey stuff.

Speaking of morality this suffers from the same problem all con man shows suffer from. The cons stop being cons and become super high tech or ridiculous bouts of thievery. Almost all of the cons are just eyeline distractions for theft. Not engaging at all.

And Scott Brick's narration was slow and dull again. i normally listen to books at 1x or 1.05x this one was at 1.45x and could have gone higher.

The first book I wanted to listen to more of, this book I wanted to get to the end.

Lots of fun, but a good story too

I like the two main characters - Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare - (Hope that's spelled correctly), They are fun, nether is too intense nor do they take themselves too seriously. I also like Kate's father Jake - he's a brilliant character.

The story is good, keeps the interest and has just enough tension to make one want to keep listening. Overall I enjoyed it.

The narration was not bad - a little odd at times, but still acceptable.

Loved it!

I had read the book over a year ago and wanted to read it again but didn't have time. The audiobook was awesome! Very well read, and I still love the story line.
