This is the first installment in a new adventure series about a beautiful, no-nonsense FBI agent, Kate O'Hare, and a handsome, clever con man, Nicolas Fox. Kate's FBI bosses assign them to take down an international swindler any way they can, promising to disavow any knowledge of them should they get caught. It's a slick, action-packed story with surprises popping up everywhere. Nick plans the con and stays one step ahead of Kate, who keeps a few secrets of her own. Scott Brick reads the book with over-the-top accents and fast pacing. He has chosen a calm, smooth, often insinuating voice for Nick, one listeners can't help but distrust. Kate is impatient and anxious about working with Nick, leaving Brick to raise his pitch and emphasize the sibilants. He changes their voices as they enter into their roles for the con that will lure the crook from his tropical island.
VERDICT Light fun with some sex and danger. Recommended for popular collections.
