Shell Game

I’m Nick Fox, and if I ever get taken down by someone…
I hope it’s you.

Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg
Shell Game


Publisher’s Synopsis:
It was love at first con. Find out how FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare and con artist Nicolas Fox first met in this exclusive original short story!

Con man Nick Fox is after Garson Klepper’s golden Peruvian relics. For Fox, convincing Klepper to hire him as security for the relocation of the relics to the Getty museum in L.A. was easy. Problem is, Fox wasn’t planning on Klepper also enlisting the help of the FBI. Fox also wasn’t planning on being paired up with rookie special agent Kate O’Hare. She’s smart, she’s tenacious, and when she’s conned, she holds a grudge. Life for Fox and O’Hare will never be the same again.

The Shell Game is a prequel to the riveting series from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, which continues with The Job

Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives, not always by chapter, but it’s clearly defined.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
At 45 minutes, this is a fun short for fans of the series. It’s less than an hour and not offering anything substantial – but I grabbed it on sale for less than a $1.50, so not bad.

 Scott Brick’s narration is wonderful.
