REVIEW: The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg
July 18, 2016
SYNOPSIS: Nicolas Fox, international con man, thief, and one of the top ten fugitives on the FBI’s most-wanted list, has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn’t know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn’t long before Nick’s covert partner, Special Agent Kate O’Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man.
The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer. He’s plotting a crime that will net him billions . . . and cost thousands of American lives.
Nick and Kate have to mount the most daring, risky, and audacious con they’ve ever attempted to save a major U.S. city from a catastrophe of epic proportions. Luckily they have the help of an eccentric out-of-work actor, a bandit who does his best work in the sewers, and Kate’s dad, Jake. The pressure’s on for Nick and Kate to make this work—even if they have to lay their lives on the line.

GENRE: Fiction, Mystery/Crime

REVIEW: It's actually a bit hard to write a review for this one because I don't want to accidentally include spoilers. So the only thing for it, is to make it a rather short review.
If you haven't read this series before then I highly recommend it, especially if you're a fan of Janet Evanovich's other books or a fan of the TV show "White Collar". And if you have been reading the series, then what are you waiting for? Read this one now, because the previous book ended on a cliffhanger and you need to get that cleared up!
The action picks up right where we left off last time. It's a wonderfully crafted caper with an added dose of trouble this time around. All our favorite characters are back to help and even one you might have forgotten about. New characters are added in, both goodies and baddies, and the result is a finely tuned mix.
These books are so fun. Nothing is over worked or over complicated. The characters grow just the littlest bit each time but you never feel as if you're standing still, leaving you with characters that are reliable but not dull.
I love these books and I can't wait for the next installment!
