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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For Special Agent Kate O'Hare, conman Nicolas Fox is a super-nemesis, but her FBI bosses insist that his criminal savvy makes him the perfect partner. In their third case together, this unlikely pair set off on a hunt to bring a maniacal international drug lord back home to good old American justice. Their hunt leads them to faraway places, but also into webs of unexpected danger. To save the day (not to mention their lives), Kate and her deviously clever cohort enlist some entertaining help. A Evanovich/Goldberg mystery thriller that crackles with excitement and fun. Editor's recommendation.

Library Journal
06/01/2014
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.

Meet the Author

Janet  Evanovich
Janet Evanovich is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, the Fox and O’Hare series with co-author Lee Goldberg, the Lizzy and Diesel series, twelve romance novels, the Alexandra Barnaby novels and Trouble Maker graphic novel, and How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author.
 
Lee Goldberg is a screenwriter, TV producer, and the author of several books, including King City, The Walk, and the bestselling Monk series of mysteries. He has earned two Edgar Award nominations and was the 2012 recipient of the Poirot Award from Malice Domestic.

Biography

When plucky Stephanie Plum lost her job as a lingerie buyer, she had little other choice than to take a position working for her cousin Vinnie's bail-bonds office where she'd spend her days and nights hunting down fugitives, solving mysteries, and falling ass-backwards into adventure. Come to think of it, Ms. Plum has more than a little in common with her creator Janet Evanovich.

Much like the panty-pushing Plum, Evanovich once made her trade in erotica as a romance novelist for the trashy Bantam series "Loveswept." Tiring of the genre and finding herself increasingly fixated on crime, mystery, and the kind of adventures she came to love through comic books like Uncle Scrooge, she decided to ditch steamy stories in favor of off-the-wall humor and feats of daring. As Evanovich said on her website, "after twelve romance novels I ran out of sexual positions and decided to move into the mystery genre."

The resulting Stephanie Plum Mysteries reflect Evanovich's love for comics, toys, shoe-shopping, Cheez Doodles, and beer. Evanovich also created a memorable character that shares many of the author's distinctive traits, such as her self-effacing, dirty-minded wit. The Plum Mysteries, while often rambling and thin on plot, are never anything less than entertaining, hilarious, and refreshing in every way.

Stephanie Plum made her debut in 1994's One For the Money, in which she tracked down Joe Morelli, an ex-cop and murder suspect who'd also been guilty of taking Stephanie's virginity when she was 18. The novel's sly mix of sexiness and childlike playfulness made for a sort of young adult novel for adults.

Since then, the red-hot bounty hunter and a crew of misfits that includes retired hooker Lula, aging bail-jumper Eddie Decooch, and Plum's own hipster granny have romped their way "through the numbers," establishing Evanovich as one of the best and most inventive writers of "Strong Woman" mysteries and guaranteeing her a place on the New York Times bestseller list.

In 2004, Evanovich introduced a smart, savvy new series featuring Alexander "Barney" Barnaby, a sexy Baltimore car mechanic, NASCAR nut, and amateur sleuth with her own posse of delightful eccentrics. She's not Plum, but she's definitely a peach. Hey, what else would you expect from a Janet Evanovich heroine?

Good To Know

Evanovich's motorcycle-riding daughter Alex has created an online comic about her hamster called "Batster," which her mother proudly displays on her web site. With episodes like "Batster vs. Beerzilla," it's clear that wackiness runs in the Evanovich genes.

If you think the Stephanie Plum novels are zany, wait till you hear about what Evanovich was writing before she started getting published. As she explains on her web site, "The first story [I ever wrote] was about the pornographic adventures of a fairy who lived in a second rate fairy forest in Pennsylvania."

    This book is a quick read with a somewhat interesting plot. It is not as exciting and surprising as the other two books in the series. The biggest draw back is it contains ALL of the same characters from the other books...minor and major. The only new characters are the villains. The authors waste words describing the scenery instead of giving new dimension to the old characters.

    4 stars


    This is a fun series. There are cons to capture bad guys with Nick Fox a thief con artist and FBI Agent Kate O'Hare working together. Most of all authorities don't know that Nick is working for the

    FBI.

    Kate is the only person to catch Nick before and everyone but a few think she is still chasing him.


    Someone is setting up Nick as a thief for new jobs. It is ruining his deal. Kate believes him but her boss is wondering about him so she is chasing the thefts all across the world.


    There are cons, drama, fun characters, chases , destruction and humor it makes for a exciting story.

    You never know who to trust or what will happen next. It is a clean read too.


    Kate is a strong character she is smart, single FBI Agent. Her father is one of the people who know that she and Nick are working together.

    A Job Only Fox and O¿Hare Can Do Conman and master thief Nick F

    A Job Only Fox and O’Hare Can Do

    Conman and master thief Nick Fox has just been spotted on camera stealing a painting from a museum in Tennessee.  FBI agent Kate O’Hare doesn’t think he did it, however.  First, there’s the fact that he denied it even before she heard about it.  Secondly, it wasn’t quite his style, and he was careless enough to let his face be caught on a security camera.
     
    When Nick shows up as the prime suspect in another theft, this time in Turkey, Kate finds herself on the trail of someone trying to get Nick’s attention.  What might this mean for their secret partnership?  Is the real thief trying to communicate with Nick or get revenge on him?  And what will the answers let the duo to next?

    The beginning of this book got my attention right away, and it help my attention as the book progressed.  The stakes were certainly raised in this book, and that added to the tension.  However, I also felt this had some of the best comedy in the book.  A couple of things seemed too easy for our heroes and the characters are still paper thin (although they are getting better developed), but overall I enjoyed this book.

    If you are looking for pure escapist fun, this book is definitely for you.  It’s a light, fast read you just can’t help but enjoy.

    NOTE: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Great Series! I really enjoy this series, this is the third book

    Great Series!
    I really enjoy this series, this is the third book in the Fox and O’Hare series and it is just as good if not better then the first two. Kate O’Hare is a special agent who is secretly teamed up with Nicolas Fox is a sexy con man. They have been working together to bring down the world’s most wanted felons. They are after a thief who is trying to frame Nicolas Fox, Kate knows that Nicolas is innocent because he is with her. Now Kate and Nicolas must try and catch this person and determine why he/she is trying to frame Nicolas. This book takes us on an adventure, I love the characters and was glad to see Kate’s dad in this book as well, I love him. This book has it all, mystery, suspense, and humor. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
    A Review copy was provided to me from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

    I was given a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley, in return for an honest review.

    "The Job" is the 3rd book in the Fox & O'Hare series by Janet Evanovich. This book is by far my favorite so far. The chemistry between the main characters seems to be growing throughout each book. Not only that, but the plot of this book seemed to grab me more than the last one. I found The Job hard to put down.

    One thing that needs to be said, I would not read this book if you have not already read the rest of the series. It doesn't heavily rely on past storyline, but I felt like I would have beenb pretty lost had I not known about the previous cases that were constantly referenced.

    A solid 3.5 stars for this one. Can't wait for more of this series.

    Another exciting adventure with Kate and Nick.  If you mix It Takes a Thief or White Collar and Mission Impossible with Janet Evanovich’s sense of humor and Lee Goldberg’s mystery and adventure you get Fox and O'Hare.  This series just keeps getting better and better.  This is a fast paced, easy to read, mind bender that will leave you tired but smiling.  There are some genuine laugh out loud moments that will keep you going through the tense times.  I like that Kate and Nick seem to be loosening up a little.  I think I am a little bit in love with Kate’s dad.  I truly hope this ensemble cast continues to entertain us for a good many books to come.

    FBI Agent Kate O¿Hare conned a major con, Nicolas Fox, in order

    FBI Agent Kate O’Hare conned a major con, Nicolas Fox, in order to capture him.  But the criminal con was so good the FBI released him to help catch other criminals they couldn’t catch without his help.  Oh, by the way, no one is supposed to know that later bit about releasing him!
    Kate supposedly despises Fox but she has to admit with humorous reluctance of course, that he is good at what he does, very, very good!!!
    In this latest Fox and O’Hare series, Kate O’Hare and Fox travel through America, Europe and elsewhere in order to figure out two things.  The first is what con is posing as Fox in order to steal famous art works and the second is the major drug cartel leader who yearns for more and more treasure and has the means and ways to make that happen with ease!
    The story involves a hidden treasure (duh, or something like that), a female bodyguard who’s almost pathologic, a Portuguese enforcer, a pirate, a special effects creator and director, and a retired Special Forces father, and more crazy, fun, chaotic characters who are part of this lunatic plot to capture or con the major con master!
    The plot is simple but what makes this latest Evanovich novel delightful is the way cons con other cons and the humor and delight they get in discussing and carrying out these events.  It’s even better than Bonnie and Clyde! It’s a MUST read!
