Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have recently published the latest in their Fox and O’Hare series. If you are not familiar with the series, Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and thief. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent whose been chasing him for years and has finally caught him. Fox agrees to work with the FBI, with Kate as his handler, to bring down the criminals the FBI can’t touch. Their work is secret; so to the rest of the FBI and the world Kate is still chasing the elusive Fox.

The Scam has them off to Las Vegas and Macau. Their target is casino owner Evan Trace. Trace launders money for mobsters, terrorists, and evil dictators. The plan is to beat him at his own game and is aided by their usual crew: Kate’s dad, a frustrated actor, a retired Somali pirate, and an ex-soldier. So what could go wrong?

Like the others in the series this is a fun read. There is chemistry between Nic and Kate and this installment changes their relationship. Unlike the first 3 in the series this one ends on a cliff-hanger. Did their scam backfire or has the past caught up with them?
