NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

He’s a charming con man and she’s a dedicated FBI agent, and they’re about to drive each other crazy . . . again!

 
The FBI had one demand when they secretly teamed up Special Agent Kate O’Hare with charming con man Nicolas Fox—bring down the world’s most-wanted and untouchable felons. This time it’s the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire.  The FBI doesn’t know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate–loving drug lord.
 
From the streets of Nashville to the back alleys of Lisbon, from the rooftops of Istanbul to the middle of the Thames, Nick and Kate chase their mark. When they find themselves pitted against a psychopathic bodyguard and a Portuguese enforcer who gets advice from a pickled head, they decide it’s time to enlist some special talent—talent like a machete-wielding Somali pirate, a self-absorbed actor, an Oscar-winning special effects artist, and Kate’s father Jake, a retired Special Forces operative. Together they could help make this Fox and O’Hare’s biggest win yet . . . if they survive.

Praise for The Job
 
“This suspense series continues to mix the humor from [Janet] Evanovich and [Lee] Goldberg’s books with the intricate cons seen in the best episodes of Mission: Impossible. The banter and thrills are nonstop, and readers will be anxious to see what happens next.”Library Journal
 
“Even if you can’t always tell the good guys from the bad guys, there’s no doubt who’ll come out on top when the Fox is in the hen house.”Kirkus Reviews

Never mind that FBI Agent Kate O'Hare despises con man Nicolas Fox. To catch some really big fish, her bosses have paired her with Fox—for the third time. The previous series titles, The Heist and The Chase, debuted high on major best sellers lists, and Pros and Cons, the ebook prequel to the series, has sold nearly 150,000 copies. This title will be introduced by the release of a new e-short (10/7/14) featuring Kate's father, a popular character in the series.

An FBI agent leads a motley crew that includes her father into battle against a drug lord no one's ever seen.Kate O'Hare (The Chase, 2014, etc.) will do pretty much anything for the job, including donning a pushup bra to foil a couple of well-dressed bank robbers in Tarzana. So she doesn't blink when Nick Fox, nonpareil con man-turned-informer, suggests going after Lester Menendez, a Colombian thug who dropped out of sight—literally—after killing the team of surgeons who gave him a full-body makeover. No one still alive has ever seen Menendez's new look, so Fox and O'Hare can't go after him. Instead, they lure Menendez to them with a tale of a map that locates the wreck of the galleon Santa Isabel, lying on the ocean floor with tons of gold. Of course, it takes a village to create an illusion. They need carpenter Tom Underhill, designer of hyperupscale treehouses, to build a realistic treasure-hunting ship and big-rig aficionado Wilma "Willie" Owens to steer it. Since Willie doesn't look like any sailor Menendez is likely to have seen, talk show host Boyd Capwell plays Capt. Bridger, alleged pilot of the Seaquest, while Willie works her magic hidden below decks. Kate and Nick also recruit computer graphics whiz Rodney Smoot to design the photorealistic CGI environment that will convince Menendez he's looking at a billion dollars' worth of bullion. Last but not least, Jake O'Hare comes on board, if nothing else to make sure that no one messes with his little girl. Evanovich and Goldberg offer another wild ride. Even if you can't always tell the good guys from the bad guys, there's no doubt who'll come out on top when the Fox is in the hen house.
