Stephanie Plum Bombshell Bounty Hunter series by Janet Evanovich reading order and synopsis

Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

Nicholas Fox and Kate O'Hare / Fox and O'Hare Series

Partnership in Crime

Kate O'Hare's favourite outfit is a black T-Shirt, her Glock and an FBI windcheater. Nick Fox dresses for success -- from GQ to whatever his role requires. She is the daughter of a retired black-ops Dad who taught her defensive driving in her teenage years by shooting out the tires of the car while it was in motion.

Kate has the kind of tenacity and imagination to hunt Nick down, but frustratingly, he seems to enjoy being hunted and taunts her.

Set in locations around the world, the Fox and O'Hare series benefits from two successful crime writers, each of whom has a reputation for fast pace and humour.

If Nick and Kate leave a trail of damage and sparks behind them, what would happen if they were to team up to bring down by any means fair or foul the people that conventional law enforcement procedures cannot touch.

Nick Fox spent his teenage years learning short and long cons and heists. They are both thrill-junkies, but on opposite sides of the law. The short story Pros and Cons introduces the pair as Kate chases Nick down. They are both healthy, adept with weapons, fast thinking and while she is determined to bring the bad guy to justice, he delights in leaving behind teasing messages.

In the tradition of "set a thief to catch a thief", they are brought together to bring down the big hitters of the criminal world. Ably assisted by Kate's dad, who has friends and contacts everywhere, and knows just what to put in a care package for a busy daughter, the two must complete their assignments without revealing their partnership.

The two authors write together with an easy, witty voice. It's Alistair Maclean meets Oscar Wilde, with lots of action, explosions, and a bit of sexual flirting to tease the readers.

The Pursuit

Ali writes: "In Book 5 of the adventures of this set-a-crook-to-catch-a-crook team of crime fighters Kate sets off with her father to rescue Nick, saving him from being imprisoned for a diamond heist. However the master criminal who forced Nick into the heist has stolen something more than diamonds, something dangerous and thousands, hundreds of thousands could die if Kate, Nick, their rag-tag team, her father the 'retired' black ops agent a few friends and some bored spec ops soldiers can't put together their most critical con yet."
