The JobBook - 2014
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
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.
Praise for The Job
“This suspense series continues to mix the humor from [Janet] Evanovich and [Lee] 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.”—Library Journal
“Even if you can’t always tell the good guys from the bad guys, there’s no doubt who’ll come out on top when the Fox is in the hen house.”—Kirkus Reviews

SummaryAdd a Summary
The FBI has agent Kate O'Hare babysitting international con man Nick Fox to make sure he stays on the right side of the law as he puts his elite skills to work for the government, incognito of course, as part of his bargain to stay out of prison. After being accused of slipping back into his old ways, Nick and Kate find his "double" who points them to one of the most elusive cons of all time. Together, Nick and Kate travel the globe working hand in hand to capture this man who has altered his appearance so much that no one knows what he now looks like, having killed the very surgeons who performed the surgeries. A great supporting cast, always ready for a new thrill and a nice payout, returns to aid Nick and Kate in the adventure of a lifetime.
