I have been a fan of Janet Evanovich for quite sometime. Her writing is light and usually has quite a bit of humor in it. Which is why when The Chase popped up to read on net galley I had to snap it up. Little did I know at first that it was the second book in the start of a new series featuring Fox & O’Hare. The first book is called The Heist, so look for that one first before diving into The Chase.
Description of The Chase from Net Galley:
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, bestselling authors of The Heist,return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O’Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line.
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.
My Thoughts on The Chase:
I enjoyed reading The Chase by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg. It had that right balance of action, humor, and a bit of romance sparks. The chemistry between Fox & O’Hara is electric and draws you to see what will happen between them. You have to wonder if they’ll get caught and what would happen if they did. I will now have to pick up the first to see how it all began. I strongly recommend you pick up the first book of the series first to read, though it was easy enough to read without reading the first book, I think you’ll enjoy the books more if you read the first one before the second.
