Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, the New York Times bestselling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O'Hare. This time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line...
Internationally notorious thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, Special Agent Kate O'Hare. Together they'll go undercover to swindle and catch the world's most wanted - and untouchable - criminals.
Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House Chief of Staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artefact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar - and against the clock - to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove's elite assassins won't be easy, especially when Nick and Kate are reliant on the skills of a very ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of mercenaries led by none other than Kate's dad.
A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, then to the highlands of Scotland and the underbelly of Montreal. But it will take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty's priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O'Hare.
