The Job (Nov 2014) book review

Catch Them If You Can

Special Agent Kate O'Hare and Nicolas Fox are the latest in the iconic line of 'set a thief to catch a thief' stories. She is a hard-nosed ex-commando with inevitable stains on her clothes who knows how to kill anyone with whatever is at hand, thanks to her ex-special ops father. He is the ultimate con man and gentleman thief -- glamorous, meticulous and dripping with good taste and sex appeal. Together they are tasked with taking down the biggest and baddest, without revealing their partnership or methods to anyone.

The Job is another of their caper/sting stories. The mark is a drug kingpin with a taste for artifacts. The trick is to convince him that they have lost sunken treasure just waiting to be raised.

book cover, The Job by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg; 220x335

The Job by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg (Nov 2014), 304 p, Bantam,

Evanovich and Goldberg are experienced authors who each bring to the writing table a solid reputation and a loyal following.

From these authors we can expect humour, pace and uncomplicated adventurous fun. That is what The Job delivers. A quickie. An uncomplicated good time with a promise of more to come.
