Books 221-222: The Shell Game and The Job by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Book 221: The Shell Game (Fox and O'Hare #.25).
Author: Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, 2014.
Genre:Crime Fiction. Comedy/Drama.
Other Details: ebook. 29 pages.

Conman Nick Fox is after Garson Klepper’s golden Peruvian relics.  For Fox, convincing Klepper to hire him as security for the relocation of the relics to The Getty in L.A. was easy. Problem is Fox wasn’t planning on Klepper also enlisting the help of the FBI.  Fox also wasn’t planning on being paired up with rookie special agent Kate O’Hare.  She’s smart, she’s tenacious and when she’s conned, she holds a grudge.  Life for Fox and O’Hare will never be the same again. - synopsis from author's website.

This short story explains how Kate O'Hare as a rookie F.B.I. agent first encounters Nick Fox and then came to be assigned to the task force tracking him down. It proved a very quick entertaining read. Now to move onto Book 3.

Book 222: The Job (Fox and O'Hare #3).
Author: Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, 2014.
Genre:Crime Fiction. Comedy/Drama.
Other Details: Unabridged Audio Book (7 hrs). Read by Scott Brick.

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 oust this particular Knipschildt chocolate loving drug lord. - synopsis from author's website.

The latest in this entertaining series of caper crime stories featuring the attractive team of Fox and O'Hare. This was fun though it is hard to believe there will not be some fall out from this particular con. I guess we shall see in 2015 when the next instalment is published.

Scott Brick is a good narrator though his attempt at a British accent for a London detective was rather silly'
