Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable—criminals.

Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar—and against the clock—to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate’s dad.

A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.

Check out the book trailer:


This is the perfect book to read for a light Spring read, to occupy your mind AWAY from all the snow and cold! It is typical Evanovich light hearted escapism, full of characters and roller coaster plot devices. I have to admit I loved the relationship between Kate and her Dad really more than the relationship between Kate and Nick, in this book. I think the authors showed more how he influenced Kate and the analogy of Nick being like her dad in many ways. I can see this series being made into a TV series quite easily- the book read like a screen play to me! If you need an afternoon away from reality- grab this book!
