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.
Kate and Nick return in an all new adventure! Haha, I've always wanted to say that!. Anyways, A former cohort of Nick's named Serena is framing him for thefts to get his attention. Her brother was murdered by a notorious crime lord that no one can pin point. He had plastic surgery (by Serena's brother) and then he was murdered so no one could say what Menendez looks like. Serena wants Nick's help in finding him.
Kate and Nick come up with an elaborate plan to get Menendez's attention. They hire a computer graphics company to make a digital sunken treasure, supposedly from a ship that sand carrying much gold coins and other gold items. It has to look real. They revamp a ship to look like a research vessel, and hire all of their old friends from the actor to the crazy woman who will drive anything to help out.
Evanovich's books really need no introduction. This series as been absolutely fantastic. It has the hilarious feel of the earlier Stephanie Plum novels before they turned into the same thing over and over.. This series has been great from cover to cover!
