Book review: The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

The Chase was a gripping thriller, blurring the lines of the law to get justice. Even though Kate O'Hara and Nicholas Fox were once on opposite sides of the law, they don't let that get in the way of their relationship. They work well together, picking up traits from each other along their journey.

I didn't read the first book of the series, but the good thing about The Chase was there was enough background information that didn't leave me confused as to how an FBI agent and a career criminal ended up working together.

Evanovich and Goldberg did a nice job of recapping their history without making it feel bogged down.

The Chase was a fun read, and reminded me of the TV show Leverage where -- to borrow a line from the opening credits -- sometimes bad guys make the best good guys.

I'll probably read the first book to get the full picture of how these two started on their path of catching the worst crooks in the world and doing crazy heists all in the name of the FBI and country.

One drawback was how it ended. It wrapped up a little too cleanly and just seemed as everyone did exactly what they were supposed to do including incredible feats to win the day. Overall, however, it was enjoyable and a reminder of why I enjoyed Evanovich when she began the Stephanie Plum series.

Note: I received an advanced copy of this book through Netgalley.
