This is the new novel (June 2016) written by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. For those of you who don’t know Janet Evanovich, she is the author of many novels but most notably the Stephanie Plum novels. If you choose to read one of the Plum novels I highly recommend listening to them. The actress who reads them is very good and really developed great voices the longer she performed for the audio series. The books have a number in each title and I admit I started the series in the teens rather than from the beginning. I don’t think I will go back to read the others.
Anyway as many published authors seem to be doing, Evanovich has teamed up with Lee Goldberg to write the Fox and O’Hare series. It’s a good writing team. There is still the humor and character development that you see in her books but the thrill of the chase seems to be added by Goldberg. By the way, Lee Goldberg is an author and screenwriter who has worked on different crime series.
In this book you have Kate O’Hare the FBI agent and Nick Fox the elegant thief. They have been partnered by the FBI. If Nick refuses, he will find himself behind bars for a long time. This time Nick gets kidnapped by the road runners a group of jewelry thieves that do a grab and go type robbery on a large scale. They have kidnapped Nick for his expertise needed to rob a particularly impenetrable safe. Nick gets caught and sent to jail. Kate busts him out of jail and the fun begins because the leader of this group wants more than jewelry this time. It is a fun read so give it a try.
