The Job Book Review

I was excited to get to the third book in the series to find out what happens next.  The Job: A Fox and O'Hare Novel by Lee Goldberg was the only one left of the series on my shelf so I was a little sad because there was not a next one to read in the pile!!!  WHAT?!  I guess I was too busy reading to pay attention but I quickly went on to the library reserve to get the next two reserved.

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.

AHHH!!!  Loved this one but not as much as the last one.  The plot was mostly about taking down a drug lord that had plastic surgery to change his appearance so they had to find him through his love of treasures and chocolates.  It was fascinating to see all the things that they do for this one assignment but it was all about the one assignment where other books had little other things that they also stuck in to keep things going so it seemed a little slower paced.  Of course that being said, they were chasing down a really bad man who changed his face which is the stories movies are made of.... and we all sit on the edge of our seat to find out what happens.  This book was no different!!  The farther you get into the series, the more I am amazed at how they mix up the mysteries. I hope that you check out this book and the rest of the Fox and O'Hare series.  I can't wait for the next one to get into the library and I am on the wait list for the next one already at the library.  I hope that you check these out and enjoy them as much as I have!!
