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.
This is the 3rd book in this series. I will read anything that Janet Evanovich writes and I’ve been lucky enough to find all three books in this series on NetGalley. This series has ups and downs for me. I absolutely LOVE the characters in this book. Nick and Kate make a great team. They are sugar and spice and bring out sides of each other most people don’t see. They have great chemistry and I’m just waiting for them to get together and get it over with. And the supporting cast is great. They are cooky and fun and quirky. They always bring a little flare to the story. They are kind of like the cast of Oceans Eleven.
I love the premise of the series, but don’t always love the story itself. The plot of the first book was amazing, the second one was just meh, this one, about the same for me. It’s on a boat, and in an exotic locale. I do like that Kate continues to play grow and push the legal limits to bring down the bad guys.
I give The Job 3 out of 5 bookmarks. Although I didn’t love this one, I’ll keep reading this series.
