Evanovich and Sutton have created two strong main characters with an interesting cast of quirky supporting persona. Emerson Knight is insanely rich with a thirst for knowledge and a very different set of social skills. He has friends and those that owe him a favor all over the world, but often strikes out with women and others in every day social interactions. Riley Moon is super smart having multiple degrees from Harvard, but at heart is a small town Texas girl. Riley, after graduation, goes to work for mega-bank Blane-Grunwald as a junior analyst. Blane-Grunwald hold much of Knight's wealth in terms of investing and actual gold. Werner Grunwald sends Riley to first placate Knight and then baby sit him as he has decided he wants to see his physical gold stash.
Soon circumstances seem to indicate all is not well in the gold vaults of the Federal Reserve and Blane-Grunwald's private vaults. As Knight and Moon discover more details about the gold or rather the counterfeit gold they become chased through the United States by some very determined and evil men determined to keep their scam a secret.
Interspersed in the story are a host of eccentric supporting characters from Knight's housekeeper to Moon's brother. None of them appear consistently throughout the story, but Evanovitch and Sutton are able to draw very clear pictures of them with their writing. Another aspect of the book that I loved were the animals. Emerson Knight inherited his home when his father died and his father had a zoo. His housekeepers tend to quit with great regularity as many of the animals have the run of the house. Hopefully in future books we will see more of the animals!
To be honest the Plum series has started to wear on me as Stephanie never seems to mature past the person she was introduced as in the first book as well as the same old gags and situation appear all the time....and we are now on book 23. So I'm very happy that Evanovich and Sutton have introduced two characters that have some depth, showed some growth throughout the book and are engaging and interesting in their own ways - enough so that I'm going to be impatiently, and I do mean to say impatiently awaiting Book 2 in the series!
