The latest entry in the “Fox and O’Hare” series (after The Big Kahuna) continues the grand tradition of popcorn fare fun mixed with an international flair. An attempt to take down a master thief from a robbery in the Vatican reveals that Nick Fox’s father is behind the effort. Kate O’Hare receives orders to arrest Nick and his father, but she soon learns the bigger picture. Now, if she wants to stop a plot and a treasure hunt with massive ramifications, she will have to defy orders and follow her gut. She has trusted Nick before, but can she rely on him to act honorably since his father is involved?
VERDICT This is a terrific installment in an engaging series, previously cowritten with Peter Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. Fans of Janet Evanovich will not be disappointed; her writing blends perfectly with the award-winning mastery of Hamilton (“Alex McKnight” thrillers). The globetrotting only adds to the enjoyment of what is arguably even better than her “Stephanie Plum” books. Mission: Impossible meets National Treasure in this winner that one hopes will be the first of many more adventures and more collaboration with Hamilton.
