*** I was provided an ARC by Netgally for an honest review***

Great follow up to The Heist.  I love the characters.  They have a lot of depth and it's awesome to watch them grow. I think one of my
favorite side characters is Jake, Kate's Dad.  He's just awesome.  He's so over the top that it's fun to watch what he's going to say and
do but underneath it all you can see his devotion and love for his daughter and the rest of his family.  I really like that we are getting
deeper into who these characters are and what makes them tick.  There is just the right amount of humor to keep this from becoming
 just another spy book and just enough intrigue to keep it from being a comedy.  It's really perfect and I can't wait for the next one!

I must say that I am rather disappointed in this book. I have been a long time fan of Evanovich and have insisted that many of my friends and family read her books. These books have had a history of being easy to read with some laughs, colorful characters, and silly fun. Her books have suffered a steady decline and it make me very sad.

This book is second in the Fox and O'Hare series. I found the first in the series somewhat enjoyable and had hoped that this one would be even better. Unfortunately, it is not. The characters felt flat throughout the book and I never cared about anyone in the book....at all. I had hoped that I would find something funny in the book...nope....nothing funny here....at all. I had hoped that there would be some chemistry between Nick and Kate....nothing going on here.

The plot of the book can be summed up quite easily. Kate is an FBI agent who has been paired up with a thief, Nick Fox to steal things. They steal things in this book several times. They almost get caught several times. That is basically it.

This book makes me sad. I miss the days when I would be sure to go to the book store on the release day for any of Evanovich's books. I would make no plans that day and I would spend a couple of hours laughing at something crazy. Things started slowly declining and somewhere along the line I started checked these books out at the library and getting to them when I had a chance. I actually have the most recent Stephanie Plum book sitting on my kindle unread months after its release.

I do wonder who wrote this book. Was it Goldberg trying to imitate Evanovich? Was it a collaboration of efforts? I also wonder what input the editor had on the book. I really wonder how many naps this book will induce. I fell asleep at least three times while reading this book. I am the kind of person who stays up late reading one more page but with this book I repeatedly found myself falling asleep.

I really cannot recommend this book. I do hope that Evanovich finds her spark again someday but it is becoming doubtful. This is really one of those books that I am just glad I finished so that I can move on to something else.

    FBI agent Kate O'Hare's under the radar relationship with one of their top 10's, con man Nicolas Fox, continues in this second novel in a series collaboration between two top authors. The job this time involves quite a bit of globe trotting, while the duo attempt to stay ahead of other art thieves not as interested in whether or not the Chinese get back a real rooster statue. The implied sexual tension between Kate and Nic is perhaps a casualty of the dual authorship. Their witty repartee comes close, never really takes off.

    Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, New York Times bestselling au

    Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, New York Times bestselling 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, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable criminals.

    This is the description from the publisher and caught my interest. That is about as good as it got. It read like a cheesy TV drama. Now from time to time I like to see or read something a bit fun. This book didn’t bring anything fun or new to the picture. I am willing to suspend belief so the story can move forward, but this story was just too predictable and was a waste of time. I wouldn’t recommend it.

    I received copy EBook from NetGalley, Bantam Publisher, for my review.
