Audiobook Review: The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg
Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, bestselling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O’Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line.
Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable—criminals.
Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar—and against the clock—to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate’s dad.
A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg’s The Job.

I’m truly enjoying this international mystery series. The Chase takes Nick and Kate to Scotland, China, Canada and several parts of the US. I love the mix of characters and the world that Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have created. Seeing the evolution of both Kate and Nick and the slowly burning sexual tension between the two is a lot of fun. I love the giggles I get throughout, especially with Kate’s dad and his friends. I can tell that rocket launchers will be a theme in this series. Just like Stephanie Plum’s car mishaps in that series, I’ll being waiting for the rocket launcher in books to come.
I listened to the audio version of this beek and enjoyed it quite a lot. The narrator fell to the background, not noticeable at all when he’s telling you this story. Excellent work. Definitely a narrator to follow.
