Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg are an amazing team. Her dry, but witty, humor and his influence on a nonstop, super-sizzling plot makes their fourth book in the Fox and O’Hare series their best yet.

It seems like an eternity since we touched base with FBI agent Kate O’Hare and her partner (and my favorite anti-hero) Nick Fox. It was well worth the wait. The dynamic duo have been assigned to one of the most dangerous jobs yet: to take down casino magnate Evan Trace. Evan uses his casinos to launder money and is known to have ties to most dangerous groups in the world. Their trek through his casinos have them mixing with high-rollers, as well as violent Mob members and terrorists.

Their scam is very real and the stakes may be too high.

They still have the support of Kate’s dad, Jake O’Hare, and Nick’s crew. It is always a delight to see Kate’s family in the story. It just makes it that much more believable. The characters just get stronger with every chapter.

Kate is more attracted every day to Nick, and Nick is dealing with his strong attraction to her. Their chemistry is overwhelming them both as they discover they may care more for each other than they should.

Without giving away the whole plot, I can tell you that at the end, I stared at the page and asked, “What?” This doesn’t distract from the story, but I sure do hope it doesn’t take eons to find what happens next.
