Evanovich ("Stephanie Plum" series) and Goldberg(Monk novelizations) team up for their third rollicking adventure (after The Heist and The Chase) with FBI agent Kate O'Hare and con artist Nicolas Fox, who now works with the agency and O'Hare to take down high-profile criminals. This time the stakes are personal to Fox since someone is committing art thefts, and video feeds taken at the crime scenes seem to implicate him. Fox claims his innocence, and O'Hare must put aside her feelings of doubt if she's to capture the true thief. Uncovering the truth will lead them both to an even greater threat that could end their working together—permanently.
VERDICT This suspense series continues to mix the humor from Evanovich and Goldberg's books with the intricate cons seen in the best episodes of Mission: Impossible. The banter and thrills are nonstop, and readers will be anxious to see what happens next.
