Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O’Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can’t touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.
Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars—and their lives—in an attempt to topple Trace’s empire.
It’s a scam that will take Fox and O’Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup—a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and Kate’s father, an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?

The Scam by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg is the fourth Fox and O’Hare book and it was amazingly awesome. I give this book a five butterfly rating because this book just like all of the others is fabulous. I love that in this one just like the first three, it starts with these little cons leading into the big one that they are going to end up doing. Their first con is in Hawaii mostly because that’s where Jake is when he needs Kate’s help and they figured might as well start conning the Oahu mobster first, then that leads them into going to Las Vegas where they see Evan Trace and that starts the big con that way.
That leads them into going to Macau with two other guys that they had help them before and eventually they get the Hawaiian mobster in there. They had to then turn things around when Evan Trace decided to ask their two friends, and the Hawaiian mobster into doing something for another casino he has going up in Macau which led them into doing a...
The book is great. I love this series and have all the books including the online exclusives. I love the charaters. The story is very good. I have read all the one star reviews because it shocks me that it received ones. I am going to address two solo and the rest generally. Okay the general address is that yes it was written by Goldberg and Evanovish. Most writers use several styles it is j other as comedy based as The one for... series and definitely not as monk. Also you will never find a book that I saw not hated by someone. The fact that it only had six at 530 plus, one of them said it should be a five, should show it is a good book. The first review I want to deal with is the lack of morale titles oh bother. The book series is about conning criminals so they are put away you can't do that on a shoe string budget. Also since when is spending money the same.as terrorism, murder, and drugs. Besides hello it is fiction. Now about the one that said it deserves five but...
I love ANYTHING by Janet Evanovich, and collect ALL of her books... This series is reminiscent of the 'White Collar' TV series (but with a female FBI and male 'Challenge' - but throw in the forbidden, but mutual lustful admiration of the Stephanie/Ranger early days - Think 'Castle and Beckett' embers - with a little of Lee Goldburg 'Monk' humor and twists thrown in - and you have this book 'The Scam' - part of the series (read them ALL) Great combination of the kind of reading I like.... Thank you, Janet and Lee for some great reading fun.... (and Janet alone, or with Charlotte, or whomever else she partners with - it always comes out good)
