THE SHELL GAME is the story of how FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare and conman Nicolas Fox first meet.
Kate O'Hare is a newly minted Special Agent stuck in her cubicle doing background checks. Nicolas Fox is in the middle of his latest con> the theft of a fifty million dollar Collection of Peruvian an tiquities.
The pair collide when O'Hare is assigned to work with the security team guarding the treasure. She meets the boss of Intertect, John Drake, who's in charge of the transfer of the treasure.
Of course we know Drake is Fox(no one has ever seen him or are even sure he's more than an urban legend).
I've become a fan of the Fox and O'Hare series. Long a fan of goldberg's writing, I'd never read Evanovich before. That will change.
