Pros and Cons
by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg
First sentences:
FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare sat in her cramped cubicle at the Federal Building in West Los Angeles and stared at her computer screen.  

FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s twentieth-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures at the same time that the self-proclaimed “King of Hostile Takeovers” is getting married, Kate is 85 percent—okay maybe 92 percent—sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox.
Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox? It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake Michigan go off.

My opinion:
Pros and Cons is the prequel to The Heist, the first book in the O’Hare and Fox series.

Kate O’Hare, the though FBI Agent is on the hunt for Nick Fox and after discovering that he is staging as wedding planner she tries everything to finally get him into jail.

After reading “The Heist” last year, I decided to reread it before the second book in the series will be out. After discovering that there is a short story I had to get it and reading it was a wonderful introduction into the world of Kate and Nick.

Those two characters are amazingly written and well developed and I cannot get enough of them and hope that the other books in the series will be as good as the short story and the first in the series.

The other books in the O'Hare and Fox series are:
  • Pros and Cons (O'Hare and Fox #0,5)
  • The Heist (O'Hare and Fox #1) – read my review here
  • The Chase (O'Hare and Fox #2)
