120) The Shell Game by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg

The Blurb :

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.

My Thoughts :

A nice pre-quel novella to the series, that I have yet to start. There isn't much to say about it except that it gives you a good introduction to the series. The layout of the concept is easy to see and the characters are introduced. There is some humour in there but this is no Stephanie Plum.  This is more of a serious crime/mystery with what I expect will feature quite a bit of romance.

Certainly a good place to start if you haven't tried the series yet and definitely a must read for anyone who has already read the series and wants to get some more background on Fox & O'Hare. Reading this short story has made me even more eager to try the first full length novel in the series.  I actually plan on listening to the audio version sometimes soon.
