The Scam: A Fox and O'Hare Novel by Janet Evanovich, Goldberg Lee

Nick and Kate are back and they have an even bigger idea of how to take down the bad guys.  The only problem will be not letting the bad guys get them...

Bantam Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 15th, so you can snag a copy then.

This is a fun series to read.  Their actions are outrageous, improbable and very dangerous.  With that and a dash of romance, what more do you need?  OK, Kate does have a crazy father who loves explosives.  She also has contact with more than one pirate, actor and the like.  So they can do some pretty good cons.  This one is the biggest yet.

They are pretending they are "whales", folks with lots of money to drop on a gambling table.  Dropping a million each will definitely get a casino owner's attention.  They know he's laundering money in his casino and they want in on the action.  They intend to take him down.

Before it's done, a food wagon has blown up, a truck has blown up, an Audi has blown up, the Japanese Mafia gets involved, a major drug dealer gets involved and there's lots of shooting.  It's a busy, exciting story and Nick and Kate get out alive.

However, Nick is missing at the end.  Who took him and why?  I'll be reading the next book to find out!
