The Chase Book Review

I was excited to start The Chase: A Novel (Fox and O'Hare) by Lee Goldberg and Janet Evanovich.  The second book in the series about Fox and O'Hare.  It was interesting to read the next installment in this interesting series.  My main problem was that I read it too quickly because I couldn't put it down!!

Internationally renowned 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, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, 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 artifact 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, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying 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, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare

This book was even better then the first book because we already knew and loved the main characters.  I couldn't wait to find out what trouble they would get into this time and it was not a disappointment.  This was a really fast paced book with lots of intrigue.  The added stress of going after a powerful person in the government added some additional stress but Kate's father added much needed entertainment with his antics.  I enjoyed all of the stressful and amusing times in this book and picked up the next in the series right after.  I hope that you check out this book and the rest of the series because I know that you will enjoy them as much as I have.  This second book was even better then the first so I can't wait to find out what happens in the third!!!!  I can't wait to find out what else happens in this series.
