This one had me worried for a while that Nick was going back to a life of crime and leave Kate in the dust but I was proven wrong. The group is back at it again!!! Great follow up to the series especially since we were left with a cliff hanger on the third book this fourth installment clears up any issues that were left hanging and gives you good insight on where our favorite couple stands with each other. For those of you that, like me, can't wait to hear about this forbidden romance well get ready because this one is awesome!!!!!!

Any book that has Janet Evanovich's name already has a reputation. This book does not disappoint that reputation. The writing is sharp and the characters are well rounded and sassy. You'll fall in love with the good bad guy, Nick, because how can you not? It's a fast more than enjoyable read. I do suggest reading the previous novels first otherwise you will surely be lost.

When you read a Fox and O'Hare novel you can always expect three things: 1. Snappy Dialog
2. Quirky Characters
3. Capers, chases and fun!
THE PURSUIT does not disappoint! Evanovich and Goldberg have written a book that's worth your time reading it, which can sometimes not be the case. But this book is fun, interesting and edge-of-your-seat suspenseful. And there's a little romance added in as well! You can't ask for more in a fun summer read. Enjoy!

They did it again. Couldn't put it down. These books are so entertaining, fun and unbelievably believable. I love how they are so descriptive, I visualize the story being told. The story flows beautifully. I'm already excited and anxious for the next one. Great job Lee and Janet!

5? for the Pursuit by Janet Evanovich

Categories: Humor, Romance, crime, drama
Audience: young adults and adults

Synopsis:
In this story Kate and Nick go after an Insane thief who decides to steal a virus and infect the world for money. As usual Nick comes up with the perfect con to trap the bad guy and save the world. Now they both just has to survive long enough for the plan to come together.

Conclusion:
I laughed so much reading this book. I have to say that my favorite character is Jake, who is Kate's father. He is the perfect gun shooting companion to his tough as nails daughter. This book has it all. Action, Love, Humor, excitement and don't forget explosions. Janet's books for some reason almost always has explosions in them. Hmm. I wonder why? Anyway I warmly recommend reading this book.

The book was most excellent!! I love the Nick and Kate dynamics, I am so glad that they are a couple. It frustrates me when authors string you along on a couples relationship. To me it is about the action and plotting of the con.
The characters are funny and one my favorites is Kate's dad Jake. I love the line where he tells Kate the third fever he has about the lady at Costo.

Ok so I will say I did enjoy the story line of the book... But just like in her Stephanie Plum novels her charachters (even the main ones) have no depth. You get to see a little bit of what Kate is feeling in the books but never Nick. After a while- just like with the Stephanie Plum novels, the books just start to blue together and it's the same story over & over. I'm going to read the next one... But if I don't see some charachter depth, that's gonna be it for me.

I'm still reading this book but, this app for some reason is making me write a review for it because I want to go to my kindle home screen! I shouldn't have to write this if I don't want to, to get to my home screen.

This is the fourth book in the Fox and O'Hare series which focuses on FBI agent Kate O'Hare and criminal Nick Fox who was released from prison in exchange for helping the FBI. I might seem strange to rate a book as suspense and humour, but Janet Evanovich does a great job balancing both.

In this book we pick up where the last one left off with Nick having been kidnapped. A Serbian jewel thief wants him to help his gang with a daring robbery. Kate, using footage from various neighbourhood cameras is able to figure out where he was taken and what he might be doing. She heads off to France just in the nick of time. Of course, one robbery does not a book make and things get very complicated. Nick uses his charm and knowledge to set up a scam to catch a very scary criminal as well as save the United States. All the usual crew of misfits, including Kate's dad, come together to pull off the biggest scam yet. I enjoy this series. It has great chemistry, lots of action, a charming hero, and a woman who totally kicks butt and is proud of it. All the quirky secondary characters just make the story even more interesting. The humour is in the interactions as well as how they manage to pull off some of the stunts they do. A quick read that is fun and easy on the brain. I am looking forward to the next one in this series.

If you’re looking for a good time, the books in this series do not disappoint, and that includes The Pursuit. While it wasn’t quite as action-packed as previous installments of Fox and O’Hare, it was still enjoyable. I think my favorite part of this series is Nick Fox’s dry sense of humor, and his ability to fit in anywhere. He is hilarious, and he and Kate together are a breath of fresh air. What I find surprising is how much of a chameleon Nick is. I mean, he’s a swindler and a con, so I knew it to some degree. But because he has always been solo, I think maybe I expected him to be more alpha than he is. But his is a man who can go from alpha to beta at the drop of a hat. But that doesn’t mean (even in beta mode) that Nick doesn’t have tricks up his sleeve.

At this point, there really isn’t a lot to say about the characters that I haven’t already said in previous reviews. I like both Nick and Kate. Kate going against her training, and sometimes, her instincts really keeps me in stitches. It’s so much fun seeing this straight-laced FBI agent giving into a dark side that she didn’t know she had. And I think, as the series continues, we may even see Kate become a little darker. Because conning is fun, and Nick is just that charming. Not gonna lie – I love that they’re banging now, even if it mostly takes place off the page. They have so much chemistry it’s hard to imagine them not being able to give in. And I love how Nick is all about the finer things in life, but for Kate, it’s convenience and what’s cheap. They really are an unlikely pair. As always, I loved the appearance of their motley crew in this one, especially Kate’s dad. I love how extreme he is, and the preoccupation with rocket launchers in this one was hysterical.

There were some parts of this story that felt a bit dragged out to me. There was a lot of info dump in this one about the logistics of the con, and I could have done without some of that. I will also say that since I have been with this series since (almost) the beginning, I think I have an advantage over someone who is reading them back to back. Much like the Plum books, these stories are very formulaic. Once or twice a year is perfect, but I think if I was trying to bang these out one after the other, I might eventually lose interest.

This was the first installment of the series that I listened to, and I really enjoyed the narrator for this one. I’d tried to listen to previous books, but the narrator just couldn’t keep my attention. Maybe it’s because I ‘know’ the characters more now and can picture things more vividly, but for whatever reason, this one worked in audio for me. In fact, the narrator gave Nick even more of a playful demeanor that I picture when I’m reading him, and I liked it.

The Pursuit was a fun read, and if you’re a fan of the series, you really can’t let this one pass by without reading it.

Enjoyable addition to the Nick Fox/Kate O'Hare caper novels. They are the ultimate odd couple: Fox is a suave, debonair international jewel thief and con man while O'Hare is a straight-laced, practical, down-to-earth FBI agent. The two are now firmly a team (romantically and professionally) as they use their wits, their crazy gadgets and their friends on the down low to stop serious wrong-doers in their tracks while the US government claims no knowledge of their capers. I do like the addition in this novel of Kate's number-crunching cubicle mate who keeps running her down to fill out forms for her expense report. Along with Kate's dad, those two now provide some comic relief. The plot in this book is theoretically a bit heavier than usual with a terrorist plot to use a biological weapon to make billions in the stock market, but the plot doesn't really matter -- you know that Fox and O'Hare will prevail with wild action and crazy scams to save the day in the end. It's like eating a bag of popcorn at the movies -- a lot of hot air but yummy at the same time!

Fifth in the Fox and O'Hare romantic suspense series and revolving around an unlikely pair: an FBI agent partnered with an international thief.

My Take
It's a pip of a start. Waking up in a coffin certainly captures my attention.

I gotta say, it's Jake who keeps bringing me back with all those little bits of back history he drops. The dictator he deposed for fun…, using a garbage truck and two motorcycles for a jailbreak…, his wish that Kate would give him a challenge some day… I love that Jake considers Nick a friend and insists on breaking him out. It sure does keep things lively!
Kate's not "all that good at the whole pretty-girl thing. … She had no clue where to begin. Her father had taught her forty-seven ways to disable a man with a toothpick before she was nine years old, but he hadn't exactly been a fashionista role model."
Ah, yes, capitalism at its finest in that leatherworker's shop in Sorrento, *laughing*

That's not to say that I don't enjoy Nick's joie de vivre. Nothing sets him back. He's always confident, and I always look forward to seeing how he gets out of this one, let alone how he gets into it! Somehow I missed reading The Scam , and it might be why I'm not enjoying Kate's character as much. I think I missed part of her evolution in this partnership.

Dragan is worse than scum. His calculations that use anyone, the tests he puts the women on his team through, his fantasies about lye…
"'You can't go ten minutes without making a threat, can you?'

'It's called leadership,' Dragan said."

Some interesting tidbits about the catacombs and how the post office used to use it for delivering letters. Kate's quick stop at Megan's house brought in some of the real world with those vocabulary words of the week the kids are learning. It's a reality that Boyd shoots down with his obsession about "knowing the emotion", lol.

It's a scam within a betrayal within a scam within a betrayal within a scam, lol. It's also one clever escape after another. For sure Willie's thrilled. She got to fire off her first rocket.

The Story
Nicolas Fox, international con man, thief, and one of the top ten fugitives on the FBI's most-wanted list, has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn't know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI.

It isn't long before Nick's covert partner, Special Agent Kate O'Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man.

The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex-Serbian military officer. He's plotting a crime that will net him billions …and cost thousands of American lives.

Nick and Kate have to mount the most daring, risky, and audacious con they've ever attempted to save a major U.S. city from a catastrophe of epic proportions. Luckily they have the help of an eccentric out-of-work actor, a bandit who does his best work in the sewers, and Kate's dad, Jake. The pressure's on for Nick and Kate to make this work — even if they have to lay their lives on the line.

The Characters
FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare is getting comfortable as a thief's partner in taking down crooks. Jake O'Hare is her retired special ops dad who loves to lend a hand. He lives with his younger daughter, Megan, her husband, Roger, their kids, Sara and Tyler, and their Jack Russell terrier.

Nicolas Fox, a.k.a., Nick Sweet, is an international con artist and thief with a fascination for his new FBI partner. Bois-le-Roi is where Nick has a lovely French cottage.

The FBI
Special Agent-in-Charge Carl Jessup and Deputy Director Fletcher Bolton came up with the idea of the partnership, and yes, they're Kate's bosses. Cosmo Uno is the annoying agent assigned to track Kate's expenses and reports.

The Road Runners are…
…an international gang of diamond thieves using the same approach on each of their heists, and they have a home base, Villa Spintria, in Sorrento, Italy. Dragan Kovic is their leader. His men include Zarko, Borko, Dusko, Vinko, and the snipers, Daca and Stefan. Litija is the lone female. Maria tends the garden.

Antwerp, Belgium, is…
…where the Executive Merchants Building is in the heart of the diamond district. Chief Inspector Amelie Janssen is in charge of the investigation. Conrad Plitt is attached to the U.S. embassy in Brussels.

Paris is…
…the home of the Institut National pour la Recherche sur les Maladies Infectieuses on rue Denfert-Rochereau. The team Nick and Kate put together includes Gaëlle Rochon, a French Uber driver (think taxi) with a fascination for the sewers of Paris. Au Vieux Campeur is one of her favorite shops and sells equipment for cataphiles who like to explore the underground. Huck Moseby, an aromatic sewer engineer, fancies himself a clever thief, except for that moment in The Chase , 2. All but the first of the previous stories included Boyd Capwell, an actor; the huge-chested Willie Owens who can drive or pilot anything; Chet Kershaw is a professional makeup artist and special effects master; Tom Underhill specializes in fabulous playhouses, tree houses, and more, and can build anything; and, Joe Morey is a wizard with electronics.

Jake's team includes Walter "Eagle Eye" Wurzel with his sniper skills ( The Chase ; yes, he had his cataract surgery), Antoine Killian is former French Special Ops, Robin Mannering was in the British Army's Special Reconnaissance Regiment and a lady killer, and a dozen American commandos on standby. What can I say? They're bored.

Andy is Jake's golf partner. Spintriae refers to both coin and victims from the days of the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Sergei Andropov is a bioweapons scientist working with Biopreparat, who escaped when the Soviet Union collapsed.

The Cover and Title
The cover is a puzzle, an orange one with black silhouettes of Kate facing us and Nicolas looking off to the side. Evanovich's name is in a large font with Goldberg's name much smaller. Both are an embossed white with a gold outline. The title is at the bottom in an embossed gold with a red outline. The series information is in a drop-shadowed white at the very bottom.

The title is The Pursuit of a deadly agent that could kill millions.

While I can usually handle cliffhangers on the TV shows I watch, I find them frustrating in books. I have no idea why that is – maybe it’s because I know it will be nine to twelve months before I get resolution? However, they certainly make me want to pick up the next book, which is why I couldn’t wait to read The Pursuit.

If you haven’t read this series yet, it stars Nicolas Fox and Kate O’Hare. After years of FBI Agent Kate O’Hare pursuing con man Nick Fox, she finally caught him, only to watch him turned loose as part of a deal. Now, the two are teamed up for some very, very off the books opps as they take down dangerous criminals that no one would be able to stop via traditional means.

This book opens moments after the last one had ended. Nick has been kidnapped. When Kate arrives where she is supposed to meet him in Hawaii, she finds signs of a fight, but no Nick. She quickly sets to work trying to figure out just what happened to him. The criminals have left some clues for her to follow, and she begins tracking them down as quickly as possible.

Which is fortunate since Nick is being held by Dragan Kovic, an ex-Servian military officer who has made a fortune stealing diamonds. He has “requested” Nick’s help for a seemingly impossible robbery. Can Kate find Nick? Will the two be able to bring this mad man down?

Now if you are worried that I’ve spoiled too much for you, my teaser just covers the first few pages of the book. Once again, the plot of this book twists in some fun, surprising, and unexpected places before we reach the fantastic ending. In fact, I felt like the pace of this book was a little faster than normal for the series. There were certainly a lot of great twists along the way.

While the focus on the action, the characters are a little flat here, but that’s been my constant complaint over the course of the series. We get to know them enough to truly care about them, but they aren’t as developed as many series I read.

Having said that, the fun and humor of the series is in fine form, and much of that comes from the usual crew that Nick and Kate once again bring together to help them take down the bad guys. Two in particular always make me laugh, and it is a joy to see them in action again.

So yes, the time spent waiting to see how the climax would be resolved was time well spent. I enjoyed every page of The Pursuit and can’t wait to find out what happens next to Kate, Nick, and their crew.

I believe I have stated this before, but I love Janet Evanovich books and couldn't resist picking up her latest book. This book series follows Kate who is an FBI agent who is working with Nicolas Fox a most wanted con man. The FBI secretly wants Nick and Kate to take down people that they wouldn't be able to get to without him.

I have read the first four books in the series and haven't really enjoyed the past few I felt like they lacked the excitement I was used to reading in Janet Evanovich series. This book for some reason I really enjoyed and couldn't put down. The last book left with a huge cliffhanger of Nick being abducted from his rental home in Hawaii after they completed a big con. Kate was right on the tail of Nick to try and figure out who abducted him and to get him back in custody. They find out though that while Nick was abducted the man who took him is planing on releasing an epidemic in the US.

I love Kate and Nick as characters. They are such opposites and click so well together. Nick is so charismatic and seems like he doesn't have a care in the world, while Kate is always working and trying to make sure every little detail is in place. I think they both have an extreme attention to detail which does make them the same in some sense. I can see how it is possible for them to end up together. I love that Nick really works out the con scheme and Kate helps to keep them together.

I also really enjoy reading about the side characters. They use the same people in most of the books. I love that each character has accepted their role of being part of a con that they actually don't know what is really going on, but think they are helping the the world.

One of my favorite characters is Kate's Dad. No matter what the situation he has his daughters back and is always there for her. I love the family bond that you can see between these two, even if it is unconventional. I also love his old buddies who help Kate and Nick out in this con. The sharp shooter who wears thick glasses and the larger man who can disappear. It is great that no matter how old you are that you can still do the things you did when you where younger.

I enjoyed the story line in this book I felt like it touched on more currents events and did seem logical. It dealt with a lot of thought out facts like the location and also used a lot of history details.

I would suggest this as a beach read or a book when you need to take your mind off of everything. The book is a super easy light read.

The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg is a 2016 Bantam publication.

I knew I was going to love this series right from the start, but I didn’t know I would like it this much! My only complaint is that the last book left poor Nick in limbo and it seems as though I’ve had to cool my heels awaiting word on his fate for entirely too long… nearly a year, in fact!! GAW!

But, the wait is finally over, and thankfully, my favorite, sexy, con artist, is alive, but has jumped from the fire into the frying pan.

Nick is enlisted by ex-Serbian military officer, Dragon Kovic to pull off a smash and grab diamond heist, is then double crossed, leaving Kate with the task of helping him escape the authorities. They learn that Kovic has not only stolen diamonds, but something much more dangerous, something he intends to make billions of dollars from while taking great delight in killing Americans in the process.

So, once more Kate and Nick must put their heads together to device a con that will fool Kovic, retrieve his delicate cargo, and stay alive. While all the jobs they have worked together on have been dangerous, this case is one for the record books.

There are capers and cons which are entertaining with art or diamonds at stake, along with big money, but when the threat is terroristic in nature, the fun and games are over and Nick suddenly finds himself in a position of saving lives other than his own, which is a sobering thought!

This story took me on quite a globe-trotting adventure, and it was one wild ride! As always, the characters are zany, and the plot has that madcap, screwball feel to it, but is quite ingenious. Nick and Kate are really finding a groove as a team, as Kate steps over into the dark side a little more with each installment. Nick, is still Nick, but I did see a little glimpse of a more serious side of him this time around.

Overall, I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and frankly, I need books like this one from time to time. I stepped into a Nick and Kate’s world and all the stress and depressing news of the world went away for a while. It was nearly cathartic. I got a few belly laughs, spent time with the charming Nick Fox, and enjoyed the crafty ‘seat of your pants’ con game competition, and the chillingly high stakes they were playing for.

Overall, this is another solid, entertaining addition to the series. I hope we don’t have to wait quite so long for the next installment!!

Fifth entry in the series picks up where Book 4 ignobly left off per many readers who didn’t like Nick getting kidnapped in the last chapter of “The Scam”. I saw it more as a preview chapter 1 to this release rather than a cliff hanger ending.

People that have not read the prior books will not have the background caught up in this entry. It can stand alone but would fall flat if you didn’t know the quirkiness of the crew or how the relationship developed with Kate & Nick.

[Spoiler Alerts]
The usual crew of characters helps with the scams to take down the bad guys, but they are used as far more supporting characters along with some new bad guys as crew. It reminded me of blockbuster sequels that bring back old actors in guest spots just because fans are looking for them, but mostly it is Nick and Kate doing their thing. Kate has become as smooth as Nick for fast thinking and acting through cons in this entry. They’ve also added a bumbling FBI paper pusher that adds a couple smiles along the way.

This book didn’t get 5 stars because it was fairly predictable and it suffered from my biggest nit…. The ending didn’t allow me to savor the end of the action. The scam was complete, people were safe at home, “please review the book” screen pops up. There was no lingering for a couple of pages sharing or summarizing the stories with the people on the home front. It was too cut and dry, over, done. And as usual, I believe because I borrow the books and don’t pay for them, my rating his higher (currently $15 for ebook, $16 paperback definitely would have dropped a star to 3).

It was an enjoyable borrowed book read, a bit slower in the first half than the second. I will continue borrowing the series.

I was given an ARC of this book via Netgalley in return for a honest review.

I have long been a fan of Janet Evanovich. I love the quirky characters and the humour that is woven throughout her books Her Stephanie Plum books always makes me laugh out loud and the new Fox and O'Hare novels are equally as entertaining. Therefore when I was approved by Netgalley to review The Pursuit I was absolutely estatic.

Evanovich and Goldberg have lost none of their skill for story telling and I thoroughly enjoyed the new adventures of Kate and Nick.

Nick is kidnapped and forced to take part in a diamond heist where he is then doubled crossed. Not everything is as it seems. The diamond heist was a over for something more sinister and deadly. Fox & O'Hare now race against time (outside the law, of course) to recover the biological weapon that was stolen.

The crew are back, as good as before and causing mayhem and laughs in their wake. Jake, Kate's father, once again manages to liven up the action, along with his rocket launcher, as well as gathering the necessary men and equipment needed for the latest scam.

I just love the way Evanovich and Goldberg combine humour, romance and deadly intent to form a fast paced, heart racing, highly entertaining action thriller. Can't wait for their next book!

Evanovich is an author that I constantly recommend to people and will continue to do so as she has lost none of her edge. Goldberg is now another author on my recommendation list.

For me, this book just wasn't as good as the previous ones in the series. I missed having the story told from both the point of view of Nick and Kate. After I found out Nick was ok and survived the cliffhanger from the previous book, it just seemed downhill from there. i did love Jake and that was the saving grace for this book. I do hope the authors get back to doing things like the first books in the next offering. I will give them one more chance, but honestly, if the next book isn't any better than this one, it will be my last in the series. And it is really a shame because i was really enjoying it up until now. It was ok, but not as great as the others.

This is a great book; this book is the latest book in the A Fox and O’Hare series written by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. I just love this series and was so excited to see what International con man and Thief, Nicolas Fox and Special Agent Kate O’Hare can get themselves into next. This book picks up right were the last book left off. Nick has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn’t know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn’t long before Nick’s covert partner, Special Agent Kate O’Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man. The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer. He’s plotting a crime that will net him billions and cost thousands of American lives. Nick and Kate get help again from her dad Jake, and the others to play their biggest con yet. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

The Pursuit is a funny con chase story. It has explosions, car chases, thefts and you never know what is going to happen next. I did not want to put the book down.

It has fast witty conversations, Nick can double talk anyone. He is smart and the best thief and con artist and wanted all over. He has been secretly working for the FBI with only a few knowing it.

Special Agent FBI Agent Kate O'Hare has chased Nick for years. When she finally caught him they let him go. Officially she is still chasing him. Now they have her working with him in secret to take down bad guys. Kate used to be by the book. Now she is dating a crook.

Now someone has kidnapped him to help with a diamond heist. Terrorists want to let a virus lose in the U.S.
Kate and Nick have to work together to stop them without official help.

The setting is all over the world from U.S., Belgium, France and other countries.

It is scary world thinking about viruses in the hands of those who want to let them lose to cause havoc.

I look forward to read more books by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. They are a fun exciting storytellers.

I was given this ARC to read by NetGalley. In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Pursuit.

This picks up right were the previous book left at.

Nick has been kidnapped and in a coffin. Kate is off to rescue him. Nick has been taken by Dragan to help him pull off what he thought was suppose to be a diamond heist. Little did Kate and Nick know that this diamond heist was a cover-up for a much bigger scheme.

Once Nick and Kate know what the real plans are they devise they own to infiltrate the bad guys and spoil what they had plotted.

This book was fun to read. Lots of action and familiar characters like Boyd and Willie still mentioned and involved to help with the plot. It is nice to read about the progression of the romance or relationship between Nick and Kate. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. Janet and Lee have great writing-working relationship and I hope they continue on with this for many years.

Oh my, oh my, oh my -- I absolutely LOVED this book, but I've never read anything by Janet Evanovich that I didn't love. Except now -- I'm in deep, dark depression and excessive misery -- because the book came after a forever wait and I read it on the first day it was out - now I have another forever wait for the next one! I sincerely wish writers could write as fast as I can read!!!!

Okay -- one thing that wasn't quite up to the usual standards -- it just wasn't as funny as the others. Jake was there, but wasn't as 'over the top' as usual. The only sort of funny part was when Kate went to her sisters home and the sister was using all of her daughter's spelling words in sentences. Kate's fellow FBI agent was meant to be funny, but I just found him annoying. I do love the 'funny' in the other books, so maybe the next one will get back to being funny. Maybe Lee Goldberg wrote more of this one than he usually does.

The book was fast paced and the writing, of course, was outstanding. It is a truly good book and held my interest throughout. The villain was truly a villain through and through and there were a couple of twists and turns that were unexpected -- you just never know what Fox might do next.

So, drag out your Toblerone chocolates and a nice bottle of wine and settle in for a nice, lovely read.

The Pursuit is the 5th book in Janet Evanovich's Fox and O'Hare Series and takes place immediately following the events (cliffhanger) of book 4. I really enjoy this series and it's always a fun, light read with plenty of humor and crazy cons. I do find myself wishing that we'd get more character development from Nick but I think at this point I'll just have to accept that it isn't going to happen and enjoy this book for what it is. A fun, entertaining tale with lots of action, zany characters and exotic locations. I like that Nick and Kate are really finding their place as a team both personally and professionally. Kate is stepping more and more into the gray area as she works with Nick to put the bad guys behind bars and that is always interesting. While we still don't get a great feel for Nick's character we did get to see a glimpse of a more serious side to him in this installment. Overall, very entertaining and just what I expected when I cracked this book open. Looking forward to more Nick, Kate and the rest of the crew.

Highly Entertaining, action packed, and laugh-out-loud funny!

This is the fifth novel in the Fox and O'Hare series, and once again the extraordinary cast of quirky, eccentric, and unique characters are back.

The writing is easy, charming, and fun. And the plot is jam-packed full of bizarre escapades, impressive cons, witty banter, a touch of romance, and imaginative villains.

This novel really is a riot from start to finish. And I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what kind of hijinks Kate and Nick will get up to next.

I just love this series. I love it. I also love Stephanie Plum, but it's more of a complicated relationship. Anyway, this book, and this series, is a lot of fun because the stories are so robust and multilayered. The locations are interesting, the twists and turns of the plot are interesting, and the relationship between the characters is interesting, but more of a side note than in the Plum or Lizzy and Diesel series: kind of like sugar in brownies. You need it, but its the chocolate that makes it a brownie. This book does not disappoint. The story is very interesting and a little scary, but not too scary. You really don't know what is going to happen, which is fun. There are surprises along the way, which is fun. The characters we have come to love are there. Boyd is better than ever. Love him. I highly recommend this whole entire series. I'm really sad that this is the latest one. I hope they get together and do more of these.

A page turner that takes up where the last book left us with a cliff hanger! FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare works covertly with Nicholas Fox, the Number #1 Man on the FBI's Most Wanted List. Nick has been secretly working for the agency since his apprehension by Kate in an earlier misadventure. This time, Nick has been kidnapped by the sadistic leader of a gang of high end jewel thieves who need his help in committing an impossible robbery. When the robbery turns out to be more than just for diamonds and Nick is left behind to take the fall, Kate and her father go to work to free him before he goes to prison. What they discover is a plot using controlled biological warfare to make billions on the American Stock Market. Nick, Kate, her father and their crew of specialists go to work to foil the plot and take out its leader permanently. Another entertaining adventure in this fun series that combines lots of humor with lots of action.

“The Pursuit” is the fourth book in the Fox and O’Hare series by the talented writing duo of Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. This novel picks up with FBI agent Kate O’Hare tracking down her partner/love interest brilliant thief Nicholas Fox after he has been kidnapped by a group of ruthless thieves who need his talents, but have no manners when it comes to asking for help. The group appears to be breaking into a vault for jewels, but in reality, the leader is seeking a biological weapon to unleash, so he can become a wealthy man. The break-in and the con that follows is filled with lots of twists and turns and laugh out loud funny moments. There is a reason why Janet Evanovich is the “Queen of Kick-Ass Crime Writing,” because she knows how to engage the reader in a way that makes you crazy as you wait for the next masterpiece from this genius. I was given this book to read by the author in return for a fair and honest review.

It finally happened!

If you haven’t been reading these books stop now because this will spoil everything! Spoiler, Spoiler you have been warned!!!

At the end of book 4 they finally got together! And for once I wasn’t disgusted that it was a fade to black. I liked that it was left to my imaginations. I know CRAZY! I was afraid that having Kate and Nick start a romantic relationship would ruin the chemistry between the two but it didn’t. There is just as much and the story is just as brilliant. Now it’s a matter of, how will they stay together? I love it!

This has to be one of their most daring cons yet, with so many lives on the line and a truly crazy and evil bad guy. This books is funny, suspenseful, romantic, and adventurous and I loved listening to it. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Kate and Nick....Sara

This book picks up immediately where the previous one left off. It continues the non-stop action and drama from the very first page and it doesn’t let up until you’re closing the book. I really liked that this one left the worst of the “ew!” factor that plagued the last book out. It also dials back the nationalist condescension that made me so angry with the previous book. It still contains the snappy sarcastic banter and quirky secondary characters that have stolen the show with every book so far. I’m forced to wonder if this was the last book in the series or if more will appear in the future…

This is the fourth book in the Fox and O'Hare series which focuses on FBI agent Kate O'Hare and criminal Nick Fox who was released from prison in exchange for helping the FBI. I might seem strange to rate a book as suspense and humour, but Janet Evanovich does a great job balancing both.

In this book we pick up where the last one left off with Nick having been kidnapped. A Serbian jewel thief wants him to help his gang with a daring robbery. Kate, using footage from various neighbourhood cameras is able to figure out where he was taken and what he might be doing. She heads off to France just in the nick of time. Of course, one robbery does not a book make and things get very complicated. Nick uses his charm and knowledge to set up a scam to catch a very scary criminal as well as save the United States. All the usual crew of misfits, including Kate's dad, come together to pull off the biggest scam yet. I enjoy this series. It has great chemistry, lots of action, a charming hero, and a woman who totally kicks butt and is proud of it. All the quirky secondary characters just make the story even more interesting. The humour is in the interactions as well as how they manage to pull off some of the stunts they do. A quick read that is fun and easy on the brain. I am looking forward to the next one in this series.

If you’re looking for a good time, the books in this series do not disappoint, and that includes The Pursuit. While it wasn’t quite as action-packed as previous installments of Fox and O’Hare, it was still enjoyable. I think my favorite part of this series is Nick Fox’s dry sense of humor, and his ability to fit in anywhere. He is hilarious, and he and Kate together are a breath of fresh air. What I find surprising is how much of a chameleon Nick is. I mean, he’s a swindler and a con, so I knew it to some degree. But because he has always been solo, I think maybe I expected him to be more alpha than he is. But his is a man who can go from alpha to beta at the drop of a hat. But that doesn’t mean (even in beta mode) that Nick doesn’t have tricks up his sleeve.

At this point, there really isn’t a lot to say about the characters that I haven’t already said in previous reviews. I like both Nick and Kate. Kate going against her training, and sometimes, her instincts really keeps me in stitches. It’s so much fun seeing this straight-laced FBI agent giving into a dark side that she didn’t know she had. And I think, as the series continues, we may even see Kate become a little darker. Because conning is fun, and Nick is just that charming. Not gonna lie – I love that they’re banging now, even if it mostly takes place off the page. They have so much chemistry it’s hard to imagine them not being able to give in. And I love how Nick is all about the finer things in life, but for Kate, it’s convenience and what’s cheap. They really are an unlikely pair. As always, I loved the appearance of their motley crew in this one, especially Kate’s dad. I love how extreme he is, and the preoccupation with rocket launchers in this one was hysterical.

There were some parts of this story that felt a bit dragged out to me. There was a lot of info dump in this one about the logistics of the con, and I could have done without some of that. I will also say that since I have been with this series since (almost) the beginning, I think I have an advantage over someone who is reading them back to back. Much like the Plum books, these stories are very formulaic. Once or twice a year is perfect, but I think if I was trying to bang these out one after the other, I might eventually lose interest.

This was the first installment of the series that I listened to, and I really enjoyed the narrator for this one. I’d tried to listen to previous books, but the narrator just couldn’t keep my attention. Maybe it’s because I ‘know’ the characters more now and can picture things more vividly, but for whatever reason, this one worked in audio for me. In fact, the narrator gave Nick even more of a playful demeanor that I picture when I’m reading him, and I liked it.

The Pursuit was a fun read, and if you’re a fan of the series, you really can’t let this one pass by without reading it.

Enjoyable addition to the Nick Fox/Kate O'Hare caper novels. They are the ultimate odd couple: Fox is a suave, debonair international jewel thief and con man while O'Hare is a straight-laced, practical, down-to-earth FBI agent. The two are now firmly a team (romantically and professionally) as they use their wits, their crazy gadgets and their friends on the down low to stop serious wrong-doers in their tracks while the US government claims no knowledge of their capers. I do like the addition in this novel of Kate's number-crunching cubicle mate who keeps running her down to fill out forms for her expense report. Along with Kate's dad, those two now provide some comic relief. The plot in this book is theoretically a bit heavier than usual with a terrorist plot to use a biological weapon to make billions in the stock market, but the plot doesn't really matter -- you know that Fox and O'Hare will prevail with wild action and crazy scams to save the day in the end. It's like eating a bag of popcorn at the movies -- a lot of hot air but yummy at the same time!

Fifth in the Fox and O'Hare romantic suspense series and revolving around an unlikely pair: an FBI agent partnered with an international thief.

My Take
It's a pip of a start. Waking up in a coffin certainly captures my attention.

I gotta say, it's Jake who keeps bringing me back with all those little bits of back history he drops. The dictator he deposed for fun…, using a garbage truck and two motorcycles for a jailbreak…, his wish that Kate would give him a challenge some day… I love that Jake considers Nick a friend and insists on breaking him out. It sure does keep things lively!
Kate's not "all that good at the whole pretty-girl thing. … She had no clue where to begin. Her father had taught her forty-seven ways to disable a man with a toothpick before she was nine years old, but he hadn't exactly been a fashionista role model."
Ah, yes, capitalism at its finest in that leatherworker's shop in Sorrento, *laughing*

That's not to say that I don't enjoy Nick's joie de vivre. Nothing sets him back. He's always confident, and I always look forward to seeing how he gets out of this one, let alone how he gets into it! Somehow I missed reading The Scam , and it might be why I'm not enjoying Kate's character as much. I think I missed part of her evolution in this partnership.

Dragan is worse than scum. His calculations that use anyone, the tests he puts the women on his team through, his fantasies about lye…
"'You can't go ten minutes without making a threat, can you?'

'It's called leadership,' Dragan said."

Some interesting tidbits about the catacombs and how the post office used to use it for delivering letters. Kate's quick stop at Megan's house brought in some of the real world with those vocabulary words of the week the kids are learning. It's a reality that Boyd shoots down with his obsession about "knowing the emotion", lol.

It's a scam within a betrayal within a scam within a betrayal within a scam, lol. It's also one clever escape after another. For sure Willie's thrilled. She got to fire off her first rocket.

The Story
Nicolas Fox, international con man, thief, and one of the top ten fugitives on the FBI's most-wanted list, has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn't know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI.

It isn't long before Nick's covert partner, Special Agent Kate O'Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man.

The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex-Serbian military officer. He's plotting a crime that will net him billions …and cost thousands of American lives.

Nick and Kate have to mount the most daring, risky, and audacious con they've ever attempted to save a major U.S. city from a catastrophe of epic proportions. Luckily they have the help of an eccentric out-of-work actor, a bandit who does his best work in the sewers, and Kate's dad, Jake. The pressure's on for Nick and Kate to make this work — even if they have to lay their lives on the line.

The Characters
FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare is getting comfortable as a thief's partner in taking down crooks. Jake O'Hare is her retired special ops dad who loves to lend a hand. He lives with his younger daughter, Megan, her husband, Roger, their kids, Sara and Tyler, and their Jack Russell terrier.

Nicolas Fox, a.k.a., Nick Sweet, is an international con artist and thief with a fascination for his new FBI partner. Bois-le-Roi is where Nick has a lovely French cottage.

The FBI
Special Agent-in-Charge Carl Jessup and Deputy Director Fletcher Bolton came up with the idea of the partnership, and yes, they're Kate's bosses. Cosmo Uno is the annoying agent assigned to track Kate's expenses and reports.

The Road Runners are…
…an international gang of diamond thieves using the same approach on each of their heists, and they have a home base, Villa Spintria, in Sorrento, Italy. Dragan Kovic is their leader. His men include Zarko, Borko, Dusko, Vinko, and the snipers, Daca and Stefan. Litija is the lone female. Maria tends the garden.

Antwerp, Belgium, is…
…where the Executive Merchants Building is in the heart of the diamond district. Chief Inspector Amelie Janssen is in charge of the investigation. Conrad Plitt is attached to the U.S. embassy in Brussels.

Paris is…
…the home of the Institut National pour la Recherche sur les Maladies Infectieuses on rue Denfert-Rochereau. The team Nick and Kate put together includes Gaëlle Rochon, a French Uber driver (think taxi) with a fascination for the sewers of Paris. Au Vieux Campeur is one of her favorite shops and sells equipment for cataphiles who like to explore the underground. Huck Moseby, an aromatic sewer engineer, fancies himself a clever thief, except for that moment in The Chase , 2. All but the first of the previous stories included Boyd Capwell, an actor; the huge-chested Willie Owens who can drive or pilot anything; Chet Kershaw is a professional makeup artist and special effects master; Tom Underhill specializes in fabulous playhouses, tree houses, and more, and can build anything; and, Joe Morey is a wizard with electronics.

Jake's team includes Walter "Eagle Eye" Wurzel with his sniper skills ( The Chase ; yes, he had his cataract surgery), Antoine Killian is former French Special Ops, Robin Mannering was in the British Army's Special Reconnaissance Regiment and a lady killer, and a dozen American commandos on standby. What can I say? They're bored.

Andy is Jake's golf partner. Spintriae refers to both coin and victims from the days of the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Sergei Andropov is a bioweapons scientist working with Biopreparat, who escaped when the Soviet Union collapsed.

The Cover and Title
The cover is a puzzle, an orange one with black silhouettes of Kate facing us and Nicolas looking off to the side. Evanovich's name is in a large font with Goldberg's name much smaller. Both are an embossed white with a gold outline. The title is at the bottom in an embossed gold with a red outline. The series information is in a drop-shadowed white at the very bottom.

The title is The Pursuit of a deadly agent that could kill millions.

While I can usually handle cliffhangers on the TV shows I watch, I find them frustrating in books. I have no idea why that is – maybe it’s because I know it will be nine to twelve months before I get resolution? However, they certainly make me want to pick up the next book, which is why I couldn’t wait to read The Pursuit.

If you haven’t read this series yet, it stars Nicolas Fox and Kate O’Hare. After years of FBI Agent Kate O’Hare pursuing con man Nick Fox, she finally caught him, only to watch him turned loose as part of a deal. Now, the two are teamed up for some very, very off the books opps as they take down dangerous criminals that no one would be able to stop via traditional means.

This book opens moments after the last one had ended. Nick has been kidnapped. When Kate arrives where she is supposed to meet him in Hawaii, she finds signs of a fight, but no Nick. She quickly sets to work trying to figure out just what happened to him. The criminals have left some clues for her to follow, and she begins tracking them down as quickly as possible.

Which is fortunate since Nick is being held by Dragan Kovic, an ex-Servian military officer who has made a fortune stealing diamonds. He has “requested” Nick’s help for a seemingly impossible robbery. Can Kate find Nick? Will the two be able to bring this mad man down?

Now if you are worried that I’ve spoiled too much for you, my teaser just covers the first few pages of the book. Once again, the plot of this book twists in some fun, surprising, and unexpected places before we reach the fantastic ending. In fact, I felt like the pace of this book was a little faster than normal for the series. There were certainly a lot of great twists along the way.

While the focus on the action, the characters are a little flat here, but that’s been my constant complaint over the course of the series. We get to know them enough to truly care about them, but they aren’t as developed as many series I read.

Having said that, the fun and humor of the series is in fine form, and much of that comes from the usual crew that Nick and Kate once again bring together to help them take down the bad guys. Two in particular always make me laugh, and it is a joy to see them in action again.

So yes, the time spent waiting to see how the climax would be resolved was time well spent. I enjoyed every page of The Pursuit and can’t wait to find out what happens next to Kate, Nick, and their crew.

I believe I have stated this before, but I love Janet Evanovich books and couldn't resist picking up her latest book. This book series follows Kate who is an FBI agent who is working with Nicolas Fox a most wanted con man. The FBI secretly wants Nick and Kate to take down people that they wouldn't be able to get to without him.

I have read the first four books in the series and haven't really enjoyed the past few I felt like they lacked the excitement I was used to reading in Janet Evanovich series. This book for some reason I really enjoyed and couldn't put down. The last book left with a huge cliffhanger of Nick being abducted from his rental home in Hawaii after they completed a big con. Kate was right on the tail of Nick to try and figure out who abducted him and to get him back in custody. They find out though that while Nick was abducted the man who took him is planing on releasing an epidemic in the US.

I love Kate and Nick as characters. They are such opposites and click so well together. Nick is so charismatic and seems like he doesn't have a care in the world, while Kate is always working and trying to make sure every little detail is in place. I think they both have an extreme attention to detail which does make them the same in some sense. I can see how it is possible for them to end up together. I love that Nick really works out the con scheme and Kate helps to keep them together.

I also really enjoy reading about the side characters. They use the same people in most of the books. I love that each character has accepted their role of being part of a con that they actually don't know what is really going on, but think they are helping the the world.

One of my favorite characters is Kate's Dad. No matter what the situation he has his daughters back and is always there for her. I love the family bond that you can see between these two, even if it is unconventional. I also love his old buddies who help Kate and Nick out in this con. The sharp shooter who wears thick glasses and the larger man who can disappear. It is great that no matter how old you are that you can still do the things you did when you where younger.

I enjoyed the story line in this book I felt like it touched on more currents events and did seem logical. It dealt with a lot of thought out facts like the location and also used a lot of history details.

I would suggest this as a beach read or a book when you need to take your mind off of everything. The book is a super easy light read.

The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg is a 2016 Bantam publication.

I knew I was going to love this series right from the start, but I didn’t know I would like it this much! My only complaint is that the last book left poor Nick in limbo and it seems as though I’ve had to cool my heels awaiting word on his fate for entirely too long… nearly a year, in fact!! GAW!

But, the wait is finally over, and thankfully, my favorite, sexy, con artist, is alive, but has jumped from the fire into the frying pan.

Nick is enlisted by ex-Serbian military officer, Dragon Kovic to pull off a smash and grab diamond heist, is then double crossed, leaving Kate with the task of helping him escape the authorities. They learn that Kovic has not only stolen diamonds, but something much more dangerous, something he intends to make billions of dollars from while taking great delight in killing Americans in the process.

So, once more Kate and Nick must put their heads together to device a con that will fool Kovic, retrieve his delicate cargo, and stay alive. While all the jobs they have worked together on have been dangerous, this case is one for the record books.

There are capers and cons which are entertaining with art or diamonds at stake, along with big money, but when the threat is terroristic in nature, the fun and games are over and Nick suddenly finds himself in a position of saving lives other than his own, which is a sobering thought!

This story took me on quite a globe-trotting adventure, and it was one wild ride! As always, the characters are zany, and the plot has that madcap, screwball feel to it, but is quite ingenious. Nick and Kate are really finding a groove as a team, as Kate steps over into the dark side a little more with each installment. Nick, is still Nick, but I did see a little glimpse of a more serious side of him this time around.

Overall, I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and frankly, I need books like this one from time to time. I stepped into a Nick and Kate’s world and all the stress and depressing news of the world went away for a while. It was nearly cathartic. I got a few belly laughs, spent time with the charming Nick Fox, and enjoyed the crafty ‘seat of your pants’ con game competition, and the chillingly high stakes they were playing for.

Overall, this is another solid, entertaining addition to the series. I hope we don’t have to wait quite so long for the next installment!!

Wow!! The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg was just amazing. As anyone who has read The Scam will know how that ended so horribly for poor Nick and Kate. Well don’t be afraid my fellow readers of the Fox and O’Hare series, Kate O’Hare is going to get her con man back to her safe and sound. Even if it means not letting her boss know what she is doing and comes across as a rogue FBI agent.

Kate does get Nick back, but her boss wants her to catch Dragan and figure out why he needs smallpox. It all started with a bank heist for diamonds that Nick was needed to get them into the vault. After that, they had to focus on Dragan and figure out his plan to be able to stop him from creating a national disaster.

They were able to do that, however, a little something happened with Nick and Kate throughout the story. I do feel bad for Kate and Cosmo somewhat since the boss did something completely out of character to poor Kate. This especially bad since she already has to be Nick’s covert partner in doing stuff that is totally illegal.

The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg was such a great book that I’m giving it a five butterflies rating. I can’t wait to see what else happens with Nick and Kate. I will also recommend this book to anyone that reads Janet or even Lee books or to those who haven’t read any of their books. This series is so awesome that I am happy that Janet and Lee started it.

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by

Fifth entry in the series picks up where Book 4 ignobly left off per many readers who didn’t like Nick getting kidnapped in the last chapter of “The Scam”. I saw it more as a preview chapter 1 to this release rather than a cliff hanger ending.

People that have not read the prior books will not have the background caught up in this entry. It can stand alone but would fall flat if you didn’t know the quirkiness of the crew or how the relationship developed with Kate & Nick.

[Spoiler Alerts]
The usual crew of characters helps with the scams to take down the bad guys, but they are used as far more supporting characters along with some new bad guys as crew. It reminded me of blockbuster sequels that bring back old actors in guest spots just because fans are looking for them, but mostly it is Nick and Kate doing their thing. Kate has become as smooth as Nick for fast thinking and acting through cons in this entry. They’ve also added a bumbling FBI paper pusher that adds a couple smiles along the way.

This book didn’t get 5 stars because it was fairly predictable and it suffered from my biggest nit…. The ending didn’t allow me to savor the end of the action. The scam was complete, people were safe at home, “please review the book” screen pops up. There was no lingering for a couple of pages sharing or summarizing the stories with the people on the home front. It was too cut and dry, over, done. And as usual, I believe because I borrow the books and don’t pay for them, my rating his higher (currently $15 for ebook, $16 paperback definitely would have dropped a star to 3).

It was an enjoyable borrowed book read, a bit slower in the first half than the second. I will continue borrowing the series.

Format: Borrowed ebook

I was given an ARC of this book via Netgalley in return for a honest review.

I have long been a fan of Janet Evanovich. I love the quirky characters and the humour that is woven throughout her books Her Stephanie Plum books always makes me laugh out loud and the new Fox and O'Hare novels are equally as entertaining. Therefore when I was approved by Netgalley to review The Pursuit I was absolutely estatic.

Evanovich and Goldberg have lost none of their skill for story telling and I thoroughly enjoyed the new adventures of Kate and Nick.

Nick is kidnapped and forced to take part in a diamond heist where he is then doubled crossed. Not everything is as it seems. The diamond heist was a over for something more sinister and deadly. Fox & O'Hare now race against time (outside the law, of course) to recover the biological weapon that was stolen.

The crew are back, as good as before and causing mayhem and laughs in their wake. Jake, Kate's father, once again manages to liven up the action, along with his rocket launcher, as well as gathering the necessary men and equipment needed for the latest scam.

I just love the way Evanovich and Goldberg combine humour, romance and deadly intent to form a fast paced, heart racing, highly entertaining action thriller. Can't wait for their next book!

Evanovich is an author that I constantly recommend to people and will continue to do so as she has lost none of her edge. Goldberg is now another author on my recommendation list.

For me, this book just wasn't as good as the previous ones in the series. I missed having the story told from both the point of view of Nick and Kate. After I found out Nick was ok and survived the cliffhanger from the previous book, it just seemed downhill from there. i did love Jake and that was the saving grace for this book. I do hope the authors get back to doing things like the first books in the next offering. I will give them one more chance, but honestly, if the next book isn't any better than this one, it will be my last in the series. And it is really a shame because i was really enjoying it up until now. It was ok, but not as great as the others.

This is a great book; this book is the latest book in the A Fox and O’Hare series written by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. I just love this series and was so excited to see what International con man and Thief, Nicolas Fox and Special Agent Kate O’Hare can get themselves into next. This book picks up right were the last book left off. Nick has been kidnapped from a beachfront retreat in Hawaii. What the kidnapper doesn’t know is that Nick Fox has been secretly working for the FBI. It isn’t long before Nick’s covert partner, Special Agent Kate O’Hare, is in hot pursuit of the crook who stole her con man. The trail leads to Belgium, France, and Italy, and pits Nick and Kate against their deadliest adversary yet: Dragan Kovic, an ex–Serbian military officer. He’s plotting a crime that will net him billions and cost thousands of American lives. Nick and Kate get help again from her dad Jake, and the others to play their biggest con yet. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. If you are looking for a great book, then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

The Pursuit is a funny con chase story. It has explosions, car chases, thefts and you never know what is going to happen next. I did not want to put the book down.

It has fast witty conversations, Nick can double talk anyone. He is smart and the best thief and con artist and wanted all over. He has been secretly working for the FBI with only a few knowing it.

Special Agent FBI Agent Kate O'Hare has chased Nick for years. When she finally caught him they let him go. Officially she is still chasing him. Now they have her working with him in secret to take down bad guys. Kate used to be by the book. Now she is dating a crook.

Now someone has kidnapped him to help with a diamond heist. Terrorists want to let a virus lose in the U.S.
Kate and Nick have to work together to stop them without official help.

The setting is all over the world from U.S., Belgium, France and other countries.

It is scary world thinking about viruses in the hands of those who want to let them lose to cause havoc.

I look forward to read more books by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. They are a fun exciting storytellers.

I was given this ARC to read by NetGalley. In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Pursuit.

This picks up right were the previous book left at.

Nick has been kidnapped and in a coffin. Kate is off to rescue him. Nick has been taken by Dragan to help him pull off what he thought was suppose to be a diamond heist. Little did Kate and Nick know that this diamond heist was a cover-up for a much bigger scheme.

Once Nick and Kate know what the real plans are they devise they own to infiltrate the bad guys and spoil what they had plotted.

This book was fun to read. Lots of action and familiar characters like Boyd and Willie still mentioned and involved to help with the plot. It is nice to read about the progression of the romance or relationship between Nick and Kate. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. Janet and Lee have great writing-working relationship and I hope they continue on with this for many years.

Oh my, oh my, oh my -- I absolutely LOVED this book, but I've never read anything by Janet Evanovich that I didn't love. Except now -- I'm in deep, dark depression and excessive misery -- because the book came after a forever wait and I read it on the first day it was out - now I have another forever wait for the next one! I sincerely wish writers could write as fast as I can read!!!!

Okay -- one thing that wasn't quite up to the usual standards -- it just wasn't as funny as the others. Jake was there, but wasn't as 'over the top' as usual. The only sort of funny part was when Kate went to her sisters home and the sister was using all of her daughter's spelling words in sentences. Kate's fellow FBI agent was meant to be funny, but I just found him annoying. I do love the 'funny' in the other books, so maybe the next one will get back to being funny. Maybe Lee Goldberg wrote more of this one than he usually does.

The book was fast paced and the writing, of course, was outstanding. It is a truly good book and held my interest throughout. The villain was truly a villain through and through and there were a couple of twists and turns that were unexpected -- you just never know what Fox might do next.

So, drag out your Toblerone chocolates and a nice bottle of wine and settle in for a nice, lovely read.

The Pursuit is the 5th book in Janet Evanovich's Fox and O'Hare Series and takes place immediately following the events (cliffhanger) of book 4. I really enjoy this series and it's always a fun, light read with plenty of humor and crazy cons. I do find myself wishing that we'd get more character development from Nick but I think at this point I'll just have to accept that it isn't going to happen and enjoy this book for what it is. A fun, entertaining tale with lots of action, zany characters and exotic locations. I like that Nick and Kate are really finding their place as a team both personally and professionally. Kate is stepping more and more into the gray area as she works with Nick to put the bad guys behind bars and that is always interesting. While we still don't get a great feel for Nick's character we did get to see a glimpse of a more serious side to him in this installment. Overall, very entertaining and just what I expected when I cracked this book open. Looking forward to more Nick, Kate and the rest of the crew.

Highly Entertaining, action packed, and laugh-out-loud funny!

This is the fifth novel in the Fox and O'Hare series, and once again the extraordinary cast of quirky, eccentric, and unique characters are back.

The writing is easy, charming, and fun. And the plot is jam-packed full of bizarre escapades, impressive cons, witty banter, a touch of romance, and imaginative villains.

This novel really is a riot from start to finish. And I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what kind of hijinks Kate and Nick will get up to next.

I just love this series. I love it. I also love Stephanie Plum, but it's more of a complicated relationship. Anyway, this book, and this series, is a lot of fun because the stories are so robust and multilayered. The locations are interesting, the twists and turns of the plot are interesting, and the relationship between the characters is interesting, but more of a side note than in the Plum or Lizzy and Diesel series: kind of like sugar in brownies. You need it, but its the chocolate that makes it a brownie. This book does not disappoint. The story is very interesting and a little scary, but not too scary. You really don't know what is going to happen, which is fun. There are surprises along the way, which is fun. The characters we have come to love are there. Boyd is better than ever. Love him. I highly recommend this whole entire series. I'm really sad that this is the latest one. I hope they get together and do more of these.

A page turner that takes up where the last book left us with a cliff hanger! FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare works covertly with Nicholas Fox, the Number #1 Man on the FBI's Most Wanted List. Nick has been secretly working for the agency since his apprehension by Kate in an earlier misadventure. This time, Nick has been kidnapped by the sadistic leader of a gang of high end jewel thieves who need his help in committing an impossible robbery. When the robbery turns out to be more than just for diamonds and Nick is left behind to take the fall, Kate and her father go to work to free him before he goes to prison. What they discover is a plot using controlled biological warfare to make billions on the American Stock Market. Nick, Kate, her father and their crew of specialists go to work to foil the plot and take out its leader permanently. Another entertaining adventure in this fun series that combines lots of humor with lots of action.

“The Pursuit” is the fourth book in the Fox and O’Hare series by the talented writing duo of Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. This novel picks up with FBI agent Kate O’Hare tracking down her partner/love interest brilliant thief Nicholas Fox after he has been kidnapped by a group of ruthless thieves who need his talents, but have no manners when it comes to asking for help. The group appears to be breaking into a vault for jewels, but in reality, the leader is seeking a biological weapon to unleash, so he can become a wealthy man. The break-in and the con that follows is filled with lots of twists and turns and laugh out loud funny moments. There is a reason why Janet Evanovich is the “Queen of Kick-Ass Crime Writing,” because she knows how to engage the reader in a way that makes you crazy as you wait for the next masterpiece from this genius. I was given this book to read by the author in return for a fair and honest review.

It finally happened!

If you haven’t been reading these books stop now because this will spoil everything! Spoiler, Spoiler you have been warned!!!

At the end of book 4 they finally got together! And for once I wasn’t disgusted that it was a fade to black. I liked that it was left to my imaginations. I know CRAZY! I was afraid that having Kate and Nick start a romantic relationship would ruin the chemistry between the two but it didn’t. There is just as much and the story is just as brilliant. Now it’s a matter of, how will they stay together? I love it!

This has to be one of their most daring cons yet, with so many lives on the line and a truly crazy and evil bad guy. This books is funny, suspenseful, romantic, and adventurous and I loved listening to it. I can’t wait to see what comes next for Kate and Nick....Sara

This book picks up immediately where the previous one left off. It continues the non-stop action and drama from the very first page and it doesn’t let up until you’re closing the book. I really liked that this one left the worst of the “ew!” factor that plagued the last book out. It also dials back the nationalist condescension that made me so angry with the previous book. It still contains the snappy sarcastic banter and quirky secondary characters that have stolen the show with every book so far. I’m forced to wonder if this was the last book in the series or if more will appear in the future…

I really wanted to give this book a good rating, but find I can't. The book started out very James Bond-ish and I thought, great, as I really like this series...then, unfortunately, it got bogged down, so much useless detail about a complex and elaborate con that was just boring. I truly appreciate the research that obviously went into this book, but, honestly, I totally lost interest and basically skimmed trough the rest of the book...and then suddenly it was over, the most abrupt ending I have seen in a long time. No more in this series for me.

I read all Janet Evanovich novels and enjoy them for what they are, well written, light, humorous. As with any prolific writer I enjoy some more than others and for this series this tops the list. The plot has more depth than the others and the characters more bite, I hope the authors continue in this vein. It isn't remotely, as one reviewer said, just like Stephanie Plum. It you're looking for a John Sandford or Michael Connely, this isn't the book for you, if you like to mix up your reading pleasure, this is a delightful, romantic pleasure with enough evil characters and mayhem to maintain interest and cheer on the leads. Most of the characters in previous installments make welcome appearances and the outrageous plot schemes just add to the fun.

I love this series; however, instead of the 5 stars I normally give these books, I only gave it 4 stars as it started out really, really slow. Eventually the action and humor that we've come to expect returned, thus I truly enjoyed the last half of the book. One of the things I've appreciated about all of Evanovich's series is that I rarely find any typos in them, which has become more and more rare these days. Although there are no grammatical errors in this book, there is one glaring error within the characters' conversation when one line read "Kate said" in a scene where Kate was not in that location at the time. All in all it was another very good read and I'm excited to see what adventure the next book will bring!

Yet another fun installment in this series. Altho the supporting players are all there... Boyd, Willie, Jake etc. this was all on Nick and Kate mostly. I love it when they come up against a megalomaniac monster who completely underestimates them. The comedy is there of course boosted by a new addition in the form of Kate's "assistant" who is hired by her bosses to keep her expenses in order. Also Kate and Nick finally succumb to their attraction toward each other. i admit I was a littler nervous as to how that would change their dynamic, but it kinda doesn't really and I like how that is handled in the book and it gives me confidence going forward.

Listened on audio and as usual, Scott Brick the narrator was excellent.

Nick and Kate are, as usual, a good couple either on the job or in love, still the "smallpox affair" left me a little cold on the side of the con, it was just too easy and too fast concluded. The other characters are the one that made the story worth, starting from Jake. Looking forward to the next book, where the situations is maybe better.

Nick e Kate sono la solita bella coppia, anche sul lavoro, ma questa "situazione varicella" mi ha lasciato piuttosto freddina, fondamentalmente perché la storia é stata molto superficiale e conclusa con troppa rapiditá. Gli altri personaggi, cominciando da Jake, sono quelli che rendono il libro valido. Ora spero che il prossimo della serie sia meglio studiato..

I just finished reading The Pursuit (Fox and O'Hare #5) by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and would like to say it was very enjoyable but I only gave it three stars. You really need to read the previous book The Scam. The Scam ended with an unexpected and stunning cliffhanger and I was so surprised at this that I originally thought I had a misprinted book missing its ending. The Pursuit picks up running at pretty much the place where The Scam left off. This is so true that I wonder if originally one very long book was split in two by the publisher.
It is truly hard to provide any plot description that will not spoil the tension provided at the end of The Scam. Needless to say this teaming of a world famous con man and an tough female FBI agent plus members of their standard support teams end up pulling off two heists an con their way to another success. Events in The Scam cause a lack of tension between our heroes. Jake, Willie and Boyd are back to lend their expertise and that extra bit of odd levity.
The problem with series books is the need to reintroduce characters with each novel. Picking up a series in the middle tends to let one lose the depth of character development that took place over the previous novels. The Pursuit has the least character development of any of the previous books. Only two secondary characters essentially originated in this book have any depth. Even our protagonists are given short shrift. This is the longest book in the series but somehow seemed the shortest of the novels. I'm looking forward to more books in the series and hope this was a blip in an otherwise highly entertaining group of books. To anyone considering starting this book I strongly urge you to read The Scam or better yet start from the prequel novellas.

LOVED this book!!! Actually, I love the whole series! It's fast paced and funny, but also very smartly written. The cons are elaborate and I love how an FBI agent is paired with a career criminal to pull off the cons. Kate is a tough and no nonsense special agent, with a father who was a military special operator. All girls want to be able to count on their dads, but when Kate calls her dad, he shows up with a rocket launcher and other fun toys.

If you enjoy the genre, you will love this book. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel. However, the series is so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all.

This is a christmas gift for my mom, so I can't entirely speak of the book itself but I will note that the shipment arrived promptly. I do have to say that in the options it auto filled as hardcover. She takes books on trips so I know paperback is preferred. I selected paperback then went on to complete the order.

What I DIDNT realize is that the paperback is large print. I looked back on this after it was delivered and sure enough it says large print. My mom is 63. She's pretty young and active but this will be a little comical when she opens a large print book for the holidays! :)

Is it wrong that I pictured Matt Bomer the entire time I was reading this book? Worked for me, so do not judge. Here's what I like about a good Evanovich book; the women are smart and sassy, the men are charming and bad in the good ways, she writes international destination and dialogue so that you visualize scenes as clearly as if you were there or watching a movie rather than sitting on a beach reading a book. It's the ultimate escape.

The Pursuit was a great way to escape for a few hours. Entertaining, suspenseful, romance, exotic locals and a plot that moves quickly and keeps you engaged. And once again the secondary characters almost steal the show. The back-up team...hilarious and should have their own series of books!

What a ride! I loved this book and this series. Nicholas Fox has been kidnapped and FBI Agent O'Hare must find him.

When she finds him, the fun begins. The action is constant, and the interest contagious. I found myself into the story and didn't want to stop reading. It took me two sittings to finish the book. It's that good.

I'm hoping there are more books in this series.

An easy enough read from an author I like. In "The Pursuit" Janet Evanovich co-authors with Lee Goldberg to create a story of thieving and love. I couldn't "feel" the characters as I like to, although it is a spoof on crime and actually an entertaining one, I wasn't grabbed into it. All in all, a decent read for a beach or bedtime luxury. It was too reminisce of the film "To Catch a Thief", but the characters not a charming. In fact so much I had to take away a star.

I wanted to like this one. I really did. I love the wit and humor in the author's writing and her characters but this one fell flat for me. I didn't feel like I could really connect with the characters, and it just felt like the last book, but with a different plot. There was no real character development or evolving - it felt a little stale to me. Great action though, and as always - the con itself is always a fun read but I just felt let down with how little characterization there was.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was my introduction to a good caper. story and I have been hooked every since. Add Janet Evanovich, one of my favorite authors, to the mix and I have a perfect escape read. I love the chemistry of Fox and O'Hare and the rest of the cast of characters are are hilarious. The capers get better and better and the laughs are well sprinkled within the story. If you need to suspend belief for awhile and relax and laugh, this is my kind of fantasy.

Final chapter in the Fox and O'Hare series? This one really could be unlike "The Scam" which had a cliff-hanger ending. As always the sexual tension between Kate and Nick is great as is the help from her father and the usual suspects of their ad hoc crew. The con is one of the most intricate to date and I love it! The globetrotting places and their descriptions add to the fun and suspense.

Excited to see where Fox and O'Hare's relationship is going butI felt kinda cheated..like they skipped 1st and 2nd base right on to 3rd. They work together well but this novel/ book didn't have a finish..!? What's up!! I love this series but unfortunately I could only rate this a 3. No originality and..too fast with no true end.

I've read every book in this series and I don't remember the previous books having the "f" word and I'm giving this book 4 stars because the authors added it in this book. They could have left it out. Otherwise, it was typical Kate & Nick and the gang. I thought it was a good book.

This book had action, laughs and the colorful crew from the first few...unfortunately this all happened towards the end of the book. Maybe it was just me, but I just didn't get interested in this novel until the last like 100 pages. I wish I could say it was because I was distracted or tired, but I read it over multiple days and it didn't help. Not a bad story, but didn't get to me right away.

I just love these books they are lots of fun. They are well written and fast paced and have a bunch of really likable characters that you just want to tear about more and more.

These are kind of like a female Jack Reacher crossed with Neal Caffery from the show "White Collar" they are lots fun and quick to read I would recommend them to anyone who likes a good book.

3.5 Stars
Fun series! Normally, it's the kind of book that's so far-fetched it wouldn't work for me, but I expect nothing less from Janet Evanovich. There are heists, explosions, and a possible small pox outbreak. I do enjoy the Ocean's 11-style cast of recurring characters. I especially like Kate's dad.

*Thanks to NetGalley for an advanced copy.

This is one of the better books in this series. After it got going, it's pretty good. The characters are not as funny as in the Stephanie Plum series, and the style of writing isn't the same, probably due to it being co-authored with someone else. But these characters are growing on me.

Conman Nick is kidnapped by an international billionaire/madman to lead a difficult bank heist. After Nick is double-crossed and left for the police, Kate organizes her own brazen operation to rescue him. They quickly realize the madman was after more than diamonds, i.e. a vial of virulent smallpox, and they decide to join forces with him in an elaborate con of their own to keep the smallpox from being unleashed on Los Angeles. The whole gang, including dad Jake, is brought together to pull it off. Kate and Nick finally hit the sack together to celebrate. The caper is a fast, fun read; Evanovich and Goldberg are on a roll.

Here's a GREAT READ if you don't demand a lot of character development or thought content! The plot moves quickly and there's plenty of action. This is ready made for an action movie (given Lee Goldberg's involvement that makes sense) so you'll want to read the "original" before the screen version is released if it ever is. This is a nice change of pace, beach or airport diversion for those who just want to kick back and be entertained for a few hours without watching a screen!

I have read just about every Evanovich book written. The Fox & O'Hare story lines are GREAT. BUT in THE PURSUIT ---- the names spelled for streets, people etc get on my nerves. I hate reading books where I cannot pronounce half the words in descriptions. Evanovich was very disappointing in this one. Having a hard time trying to get to the end.

This book wasn't as good as the other Fox and O'Hare stories. It was a bit more creepy and serious then one would expect from a light novel. I've read all of the Stephanie Plum books and I'm going to stick with those. Those are delightful books.

Book 5 in the Fox & O'Hare series and another winner.

It's a great read, and I devoured it.

Like almost every J. Evanovich book, I read it in just a few sittings. Good twists, new setting, almost made me want to see the underside of Paris. Love Nick and Kate characters and their support staff. I think guns blazing ending was a little too quick. I would have imagined a little more panache from Nick, but it's always good when your dad has your back.

As always, the duo of Evanovich and Goldberg have produced a thoroughly enjoyable book, and next saga in the series. These are a fast read, but upon second reading, I pick up things I may have missed the first time. I enjoy the FO'H series as much as the Plum series, so that's high praise.
