Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he’s also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he’d probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.
What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.
Ms Evanovich continues to wow her readers and this one is no exception. I laughed so much while I read this book!
Riley Moon recently graduated Harvard and has just started working for Blane-Grunwald, mostly in a grunt capacity, she has to work her way up. But when the boss orders her to visit with newly inherited millionaire Emerson Knight, she was completely unbalanced by what she found. Emerson is... interesting. Extremely eccentric and not really caring about meeting with a bank person, Emerson decides that he wants to see his gold, so has Riley take him to the bank.
What follows is a serious adventure on finding a missing Grunwald brother and a ton of missing gold. Very Plum-like in that the various adventures Riley and Emerson stumble upon never seem to go the right way. This book was just great. I cannot wait for the next book!
