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

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.

    Another thumbs up

    I love Janet Evanovich. Her books are entertaining, funny, and keep you turning the pages. I think this is the third book in the series of FBI agent Kate and con man Nick Fox. They make a great team. You won't be disappointed if you've read the other books.

    An OK, Fast Read Novel

    Just before starting this novel, I read the second book in the series, The Chase, so I thought I'd read the new one in the series. But even reading The Chase I noticed a somewhat adolescent writing style which is much more evident in The Job. I know the authors are experienced novelists so this just must be their style of writing. It's really not a style I enjoy for this type of novel. The plot seemed thinner and the book was shorter than the previous one too. I won't continue to read any new novels in this series.

    I have been a huge Janet Evanovich fan from way back. It started with her Full Tilt series, and fully blossomed with the Stephanie Plum series. I have enjoyed the Alex Barnaby and Lizzie & Diesel series (a spin off of the Stephanie Plum Holiday stories). So it was a no brainer for me to pick up her new series Fox and O'Hare, a collaboration with Lee Goldberg. Thanks to Netgalley for helping my get my hands on these books early.

    This book continues the sharp humor, snappy comebacks and crazy situations that Evanovich is known for. Lee Goldberg, best known for his work as a writer on the tv show and book series Monk, brings much to the table. The collaboration between these two has created a world rich in character, elaborate schemes and chutzpah. There is a lot about this book to like.

    If you have read any Janet Evanovich before, you know that she has a soft spot for the slightly kooky grandmother figure. In this series we have O'Hare's ex-special forces father, Jake. He steals the scenes for me whenever he is in them. I have completely fallen in love with him. 
    “Besides, there’s nobody who is going to watch your back better than me. You know that.”
    “That’s why I’m here.” 
    “And that’s why I’m going to be there with you, wherever there is, any time you ask and as long as I’m able,” he said. “It’s what fathers do.” 
    “Most fathers don’t show up with hand grenades and bowie knives.” 
    “They should be ashamed of themselves,” Jake said.

    And Jake is just one of the group of interesting characters that make this such a good series. 

    If you like comedy mixed with your mystery, enjoy a daring bit of retribution or simply looking for a strong female action book, give this series a try. I think of it as a cross between Miss Congeniality, Leverage and White Collar. An all around 5 star read.

    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.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I have to admit that I haven’t read the first two books in the series but I found it wasn’t necessary. Like with most series, it helps, but I wasn’t lost without them. I love Janet Evanovich books so even though I hadn’t read Lee Goldberg, I knew I was in for a fun ride.

    I thought Kate had a great outlook on life. She wants Nick but also knows a relationship would be a bad idea for monumental reasons. Like the fact that he’s a thief and her life is dedicated to putting men like him in prison. I liked that her go-to comfort clothes is her FBI windbreaker and her weapon of choice is an extending baton.

    Nick, of course, is the perfect foil to Kate. He is suave and cool under pressure, sort of Cary Grant-ish in To Catch a Thief. I loved his flirtatious teasing and the fact that he doesn’t give up on Kate. I’m sure they will end up together down the line but for now the teasing and the banter is much more fun than a relationship.

    The secondary characters are all just that – characters. I especially loved Willie and her penchant for driving anything she could, regardless of what she took down in the process. Right behind her is Boyd, who played the ship’s captain in their con game. Boyd is a method actor, creating back story and completely engrossing himself in the role. I do hope we get to meet these (and the other) characters in books down the line.

    I wholeheartedly recommend The Job. It has all the elements required – witty repartee, action, suspense, a cast of true characters and a budding romance.

    Favorite Quote: “And now I’m going back to my luxurious suite. I have big plans for the rest of the evening.”

    “That sounds promising,” Nick said. “What did you have in mind?”

    “Room service,” Kate said.

    I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

    The third installment of The Fox and O'Hare series is a good one. It's not as complicated as the first two, but it has a solid plot, reappearances of the same crazy team, leaves you hanging in a way that isn't annoying.

    I have read several reviews despairing over the "plot-driven" tendencies of this series. Isn't that the basis of a good story, though? Whacky characters and crazy antics can take you so far. Without a decent plot we're left with 350 pages of idiocy and lusting after two guys with very little actually occurring. Fox and O'Hare are the example that Stephanie Plum needs to follow- fewer shenanigans, more focus on busting bad guys.

    The third installment in this fantastic series! We again see Kat

    The third installment in this fantastic series! We again see Kate, FBI agent, and Nick, con man, working another con to bring another bad guy down. While I did not like this one as much as The Chase, it was still a fantastic and fun filled read. I mentioned in my previous review that series like this one usually follow the same formula for each book and that's why people get bored of them, however even with The Job, I still don't believe this applies to this series. In The Job, the target is a cartel drug lord who had complete plastic surgery and fled the country to live his life of riches and run his operation unknown, with no face to put on for any law organization. 
    There is a slight change in format in The Job and it is that we actually had two mysteries in one book. One is connected to the other but I personally thought we would be following the thief that was stealing from museums all over the world throughout the whole book, but that was just the beginning. I also really enjoyed Kate's journey through the different countries like Turkey, France, and Spain. Also, what I found interesting about this book is the target himself. He is obsessed with chocolate and only gets the finest most expensive ones. In one scene he was actually eating "truffles filled with champagne and flecked with twenty-four-karat gold flakes."  He goes on and says "It pleased him to know that he was so rich that he crapped gold." I burst out laughing at that. 
    I feel like I also need to dedicate a paragraph to Kate's dad. He was black ops but is now retired and lives with Kate's sister. I love how fatherly he is and some of the stories he mentions of presents he used to give to Kate when she was young like a hand grenade, etc, as well as all the training she did were hilarious. There was a scene where Jake asked her where her hand grenade he got her for christmas was and she offhandedly mentioned it's somewhere in her house.. like that is completely normal to the normal person. He is such a great dad and a kick butt member of Kate's con crew (he is always recruited by Nick in their cons). This is definitely another fantastic book by the authors and I can't wait to see where the fourth book takes us!

    The Job 
    by Janet Evanovich
    Brash sequences of robberies point to Nicolas Fox, under cover fugitive working for the FBI. FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare has some work to do, once she is done with her current case load. Back into the thick of things Kate O’Hare finds that she has more to deal with then rumor control. One of Nick’s old associates is framing him with these brash robberies to get his attention. There is more to the story than expected but Kate and Nick find a way to plan through this whole sequence of events and bring another criminal mind to justice.  Their plan is detailed and conniving but its implementation can all be brought down in a shower of sparks.

    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.
