Evanovich and Goldberg bring us another hilarious page turner in "The Scam" out September 2015

Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O’Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can’t touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.
Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars—and their lives—in an attempt to topple Trace’s empire.
It’s a scam that will take Fox and O’Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup—a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and Kate’s father, an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything, of course. With the hilarious feel of the Stephanie Plum novels, Evanovich and Goldberg seriously deliver on this series. I have enjoyed every minute of them. 

Kat and Nick are out to take down Evan Trace, a casino owner allowing bad guys to launder dirty money through his casinos. In the midst of it, Kate's dad has a friend in Hawaii who is butting heads with a Hawaiian mobster. They have a brilliant plan to involve the mobster in their plot to take down Trace, that way everything gets done at once. They bring their team back to help them out, after Nick poses as a lawyer to get Willie out of a stealing a bus charge. Then the action happens....

Every turn of the page makes you laugh until you run out of breath! Great series!
