The Job

He’s a charming con man and she’s a dedicated FBI agent, and they’re about to drive each other crazy . . . again! 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.

My Review

I have read other books by Janet but this is my first Fox and O'Hare novel. After finishing this book I will have to go back and check out books one and two in this series. I really loved the witty banter between Kate and Nick. They make a good duo. Nick is a man of many faces and surprises. This is why I liked him. I never knew what he would do next. Kate could stand up to Nick and dish out just as much as he gave her. So they are equally matched. They kind of reminded me of Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in the movie, The Tourist. Kate and Nick because they worked so well together as the story progressed they seemed to pick up speed. Each one trying to catch the other one and maybe up each other too. However Nick had the upper hand. All the different names that he came up with were funny. Another thing that I liked about this book is that you can not tell where one author stopped and the other one picked up. The heists were fine but how Kate and Nick solved it was the entertaining part. I almost hope that they never hook up because the cat and mouse game these two play scores big.
