Overview

Janet Evanovich, author of the blockbuster Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, writer for the Monk television show, team up once again for the fifth book in their rollicking, New York Times bestselling Fox and O’Hare series!

Nicolas Fox, international con man, thief, and one of the top ten fugitives on the FBI’s most-wanted list, has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn’t know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn’t long before Nick’s covert partner, Special Agent Kate O’Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man.
 
The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer. He’s plotting a crime that will net him billions . . . and cost thousands of American lives.
 
Nick and Kate have to mount the most daring, risky, and audacious con they’ve ever attempted to save a major U.S. city from a catastrophe of epic proportions. Luckily they have the help of an eccentric out-of-work actor, a bandit who does his best work in the sewers, and Kate’s dad, Jake. The pressure’s on for Nick and Kate to make this work—even if they have to lay their lives on the line.

I just finished reading The Pursuit (Fox and O'Hare #5) by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and would like to say it was very enjoyable but I only gave it three stars. You really need to read the previous book The Scam. The Scam ended with an unexpected and stunning cliffhanger and I was so surprised at this that I originally thought I had a misprinted book missing its ending. The Pursuit picks up running at pretty much the place where The Scam left off. This is so true that I wonder if originally one very long book was split in two by the publisher. It is truly hard to provide any plot description that will not spoil the tension provided at the end of The Scam. Needless to say this teaming of a world famous con man and an tough female FBI agent plus members of their standard support teams end up pulling off two heists an con their way to another success. Events in The Scam cause a lack of tension between our heroes. Jake, Willie and Boyd are back to lend their expertise and that extra bit of odd levity. The problem with series books is the need to reintroduce characters with each novel. Picking up a series in the middle tends to let one lose the depth of character development that took place over the previous novels. The Pursuit has the least character development of any of the previous books. Only two secondary characters essentially originated in this book have any depth. Even our protagonists are given short shrift. This is the longest book in the series but somehow seemed the shortest of the novels. I'm looking forward to more books in the series and hope this was a blip in an otherwise highly entertaining group of books. To anyone considering starting this book I strongly urge you to read The Scam or better yet start from the prequel novellas.

Wow!! The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg was just amazing. As anyone who has read The Scam will know how that ended so horribly for poor Nick and Kate. Well don’t be afraid my fellow readers of the Fox and O’Hare series, Kate O’Hare is going to get her con man back to her safe and sound. Even if it means not letting her boss know what she is doing and comes across as a rogue FBI agent. Kate does get Nick back, but her boss wants her to catch Dragan and figure out why he needs smallpox. It all started with a bank heist for diamonds that Nick was needed to get them into the vault. After that, they had to focus on Dragan and figure out his plan to be able to stop him from creating a national disaster. They were able to do that, however, a little something happened with Nick and Kate throughout the story. I do feel bad for Kate and Cosmo somewhat since the boss did something completely out of character to poor Kate. This especially bad since she already has to be Nick’s covert partner in doing stuff that is totally illegal. The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg was such a great book that I’m giving it a five butterflies rating. I can’t wait to see what else happens with Nick and Kate. I will also recommend this book to anyone that reads Janet or even Lee books or to those who haven’t read any of their books. This series is so awesome that I am happy that Janet and Lee started it. Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness’ Book Trove. To read more of my reviews like this one please visit my blog: baronessbooktrove.com

Fans Will Pursue This Book While I can usually handle cliffhangers on the TV shows I watch, I find them frustrating in books. I have no idea why that is – maybe it’s because I know it will be nine to twelve months before I get resolution? However, they certainly make me want to pick up the next book, which is why I couldn’t wait to read The Pursuit. If you haven’t read this series yet, it stars Nicolas Fox and Kate O’Hare. After years of FBI Agent Kate O’Hare pursuing con man Nick Fox, she finally caught him, only to watch him turned loose as part of a deal. Now, the two are teamed up for some very, very off the books opps as they take down dangerous criminals that no one would be able to stop via traditional means. This book opens moments after the last one had ended. Nick has been kidnapped. When Kate arrives where she is supposed to meet him in Hawaii, she finds signs of a fight, but no Nick. She quickly sets to work trying to figure out just what happened to him. The criminals have left some clues for her to follow, and she begins tracking them down as quickly as possible. Which is fortunate since Nick is being held by Dragan Kovic, an ex-Servian military officer who has made a fortune stealing diamonds. He has “requested” Nick’s help for a seemingly impossible robbery. Can Kate find Nick? Will the two be able to bring this mad man down? Now if you are worried that I’ve spoiled too much for you, my teaser just covers the first few pages of the book. Once again, the plot of this book twists in some fun, surprising, and unexpected places before we reach the fantastic ending. In fact, I felt like the pace of this book was a little faster than normal for the series. There were certainly a lot of great twists along the way. While the focus on the action, the characters are a little flat here, but that’s been my constant complaint over the course of the series. We get to know them enough to truly care about them, but they aren’t as developed as many series I read. Having said that, the fun and humor of the series is in fine form, and much of that comes from the usual crew that Nick and Kate once again bring together to help them take down the bad guys. Two in particular always make me laugh, and it is a joy to see them in action again. So yes, the time spent waiting to see how the climax would be resolved was time well spent. I enjoyed every page of The Pursuit and can’t wait to find out what happens next to Kate, Nick, and their crew.

The Pursuit is a funny con chase story. It has explosions, car chases, thefts and you never know what is going to happen next. I did not want to put the book down. It has fast witty conversations, Nick can double talk anyone. He is smart and the best thief and con artist and wanted all over. He has been secretly working for the FBI with only a few knowing it. Special Agent FBI Agent Kate O'Hare has chased Nick for years. When she finally caught him they let him go. Officially she is still chasing him. Now they have her working with him in secret to take down bad guys. Kate used to be by the book. Now she is dating a crook. Now someone has kidnapped him to help with a diamond heist. Terrorists want to let a virus lose in the U.S. Kate and Nick have to work together to stop them without official help. The setting is all over the world from U.S., Belgium, France and other countries. It is scary world thinking about viruses in the hands of those who want to let them lose to cause havoc. I look forward to read more books by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. They are a fun exciting storytellers. I was given this ARC to read by NetGalley. In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Pursuit.

This is a great book; this book is the latest book in the A Fox and O’Hare series written by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. I just love this series and was so excited to see what International con man and Thief, Nicolas Fox and Special Agent Kate O’Hare can get themselves into next. This book picks up right were the last book left off. Nick has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn’t know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn’t long before Nick’s covert partner, Special Agent Kate O’Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man. The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer. He’s plotting a crime that will net him billions and cost thousands of American lives. Nick and Kate get help again from her dad Jake, and the others to play their biggest con yet. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Great read!!!

LOVED this book!!! Actually, I love the whole series! It's fast paced and funny, but also very smartly written. The cons are elaborate and I love how an FBI agent is paired with a career criminal to pull off the cons. Kate is a tough and no nonsense special agent, with a father who was a military special operator. All girls want to be able to count on their dads, but when Kate calls her dad, he shows up with a rocket launcher and other fun toys. If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel. However, the series is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

I love this series. Nick & Kate are fun and passionate. The stories are fast paced romps that will leave you breathless and wanting more. The Pursuit (Fox and O'Hare #5) is no different. This book will make you laugh out loud and gasp in sympathetic terror. Each installment is better than the last.

If you want to spend too much on too little, this is the book for you! There was not one redeeming thing sbout this book. At least the Stephanie Plum novels are entertaining.
