A Review of The Job by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

The Job (A Fox and O’Hare Novel)

by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Did you like the previous books in the Fox and O’Hare series? If you did, then you will like this one too. Special Agent Kate O’Hare and charming con man Nicolas Fox are back together, traveling the world, and taking down the bad guys. The Job is a very straight line adventure-thriller. There is some mystery, but not much. Mainly Fox and O’Hare have to figure out who the bad guy is, and then come up with an elaborate con, to take him down. All the while, everyone except O’Hare and her boss, is trying to capture Fox, and throw him in jail.

The story is good. It’s fast paced, has a lot of entertaining action, but no real plot twists. You pretty much know what is going to happen, and it does. I had hoped for more. I like to be puzzled. I like to think I have it a figured out, but then to have it be something entirely different. I like plot twists. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed The Job, and had trouble putting it down, but I had wanted more. It just seemed that everything worked out too well and too easily.

I give The Job 3 1/2 Stars out of 5. If you like fast paced books, with a complicated sting operation and a little romantic tension, then you will love The Job.

I received a Digital Review Copy from NetGalley.com.

Book Description

The JobHe’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.
