Book Review: ‘The Job’ by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg


The Job written by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg.

I have read other books by Evanovich, such as; the Stefanie Plum series and the Lizzy and Diesal novels. I enjoyed both of those series since they are a crime solving series with humor and sometimes romance.

I usually don’t read books authored by two people, however since I received this novel for free, enjoyed her other books and wanted an easy I read I decided to dive in.

So, The Job is also part of a series of books about an FBI agent Kate O’Hare and a charming con man Nicholas Fox. Since Fox was captured by O’Hare and turned informant for the FBI it has been O’Hare’s assignment to watch over and rein in Fox. This all happened in the previous books.

*I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, thankfully you don’t need to as you can pick up the plot line pretty quick.

The novel was an interesting take on an FBI agent, first tracking a series of robbery heist and trying to prove Fox is innocent. Fox and O’Hare eventually team up for an elaborate scheme to take out a ruthless killer on the FBI’s most wanted list.

Through the book there are many pop culture references and the whole elaborate scheme to take down the master villain is done to the premise of the Ocean Eleven movie. Find numerous crooks with a variety of skills, set up an elaborate ruse and con the con man.

As I mentioned easy read, can skim parts through the book without missing much. Not a bestseller or a must keep and recommend type of book. I will be giving it away for someone else to enjoy on a Sunday afternoon. You will be entertained at parts, amused by others and see through the plot right till the end.

If you are looking for a light hearted adventure with some twist and playful banter, this is for you.

Happy Reading. ♥
