NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
He's a charming con man and she's a dedicated FBI agent, and they're about to drive each other crazy . . . again!


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.
Praise for The Job

"This suspense series continues to mix the humor from [Janet] Evanovich and [Lee] Goldberg's books with the intricate cons seen in the best episodes of Mission: Impossible. The banter and thrills are nonstop, and readers will be anxious to see what happens next."Library Journal

"Even if you can't always tell the good guys from the bad guys, there's no doubt who'll come out on top when the Fox is in the hen house."Kirkus Reviews
From the Hardcover edition.

Excerpts-
  • From the cover 1

    FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare slouched back in her tan leather executive office chair, looked across her desk, and surveyed the lobby of the Tarzana branch of California Metro Bank. The desk actually belonged to the assistant manager. Kate was occupying it because she was waiting for the bank to get robbed. She'd been waiting for four days, and she was wishing it would happen soon, because she was going gonzo with boredom.

    The boredom vanished and her posture improved when two businessmen wearing impeccably tailored suits walked through the bank's double glass doors. One of the men wore Ray-­Bans and had a Louis Vuitton backpack slung over his shoulder. The other man was stylishly unshaven and had a raincoat draped casually over his right arm. It hadn't rained in L.A. in two months, and no rain was expected, so Kate figured these might be the guys she'd been waiting for, and that at least one of them wasn't all that good at hiding a weapon.

    The man wearing the Ray-­Bans went directly into the manager's glass-­walled office, and the man with the raincoat approached Kate's desk and sat down across from her. His gaze immediately went to her chest, which was entirely understandable, as she was wearing a push-­up bra under her Ann Taylor pantsuit that made her breasts burst out of her open blouse like Poppin' Fresh dough. This wasn't a favored look for Kate, but she was the job, and if it took cleavage to capture some slimeball, then she was all about it.

    "May I help you, sir?" Kate asked.

    "Call me Slick," the man said.

    "Slick?" she said. "Really?"

    He shrugged and adjusted the raincoat so that she could see the Sig Sauer 9mm semiautomatic underneath it. "Keep smiling and relax. I'm simply a businessman talking to you about opening a new account."

    Kate glanced toward the office of the manager. FBI Special Agent Seth Ryerson was behind the manager's desk, and the real manager was working as one of the bank's four tellers. The Ray-­Bans guy was giving Ryerson instructions. Ryerson turned to look at Kate, and she could see that sweat was already beading on his balding head. As soon as any action started, Ryerson always broke out in a sweat. In five minutes, he'd be soaked. It was never pretty.

    Kate and Ryerson had been working undercover, following a tip, hoping the men would show up. The bank fit the profile of the six other San Fernando Valley banks the Businessman ­Bandits had held up over the last two months. The Tarzana bank was a stand-­alone building in a largely residential area and was within a block of a freeway on-­ramp and a major interchange.

    Kate knew there was a third "businessman" in a car idling in the parking lot. She also knew that an FBI strike team was parked around the corner waiting to move in.

    "What do you want me to do?" Kate asked Slick.

    "Sit there and be pretty. Here's how it's going to work, sweetie. My associate is telling your manager to take the backpack to the vault and bring it back filled with cash or I will put a bullet in your chest. My associate will then leave the bank, but I will stick around for a minute flirting with you. If any dye packs explode, or any alarms go off, I will shoot you. If nothing goes wrong, I'll simply get up and walk out the door, no harm done. All you have to do is stay calm, and this will all be over soon."

    It was the same speech he'd given to the women at the other banks the Businessman Bandits had held up. Slick always picked a young woman with cleavage to threaten with his gun, which was why Kate had worn the push-­up bra. She'd wanted to be his target.

    Kate looked past Slick to the...

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Scott Brick is clearly having a good time in this fast-paced book in the Fox and O'Hare series. Beautiful FBI Agent Kate O'Hare and irresistible world-class con man Nicolas Fox are hot on the trail of a vicious drug lord. The "usual suspects"--Kate's dad and his former Special Forces cohorts, a well-endowed blonde who can drive or fly anything, and a self-absorbed but brilliant actor--come along for the ride. Using slight tonal differences for each character, Brick makes each character recognizable. His other strengths, well-timed pauses and a humorous ironic tone, also make listening enjoyable.
