NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, bestselling authors of The Heist, return in this action-packed, exciting adventure featuring master con artist Nicolas Fox and die-hard FBI agent Kate O’Hare. And this time around, things go from hot to nuclear when government secrets are on the line. Internationally renowned thief and con artist Nicolas Fox is famous for running elaborate and daring scams. His greatest con of all: convincing the FBI to team him up with the only person who has ever caught him, and the only woman to ever capture his attention, Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Together they’ll go undercover to swindle and catch the world’s most wanted—and untouchable—criminals. Their newest target is Carter Grove, a former White House chief of staff and the ruthless leader of a private security agency. Grove has stolen a rare Chinese artifact from the Smithsonian, a crime that will torpedo U.S. relations with China if it ever becomes public. Nick and Kate must work under the radar—and against the clock—to devise a plan to steal the piece back. Confronting Grove’s elite assassins, Nick and Kate rely on the skills of their ragtag crew, including a flamboyant actor, a Geek Squad techie, and a band of AARP-card-carrying mercenaries led by none other than Kate’s dad. A daring heist and a deadly chase lead Nick and Kate from Washington, D.C., to Shanghai, from the highlands of Scotland to the underbelly of Montreal. But it’ll take more than death threats, trained henchmen, sleepless nights, and the fate of a dynasty’s priceless heirloom to outsmart Fox and O’Hare.

Kyle and Kelsey Kupecky couldn't have dreamed a better love story for themselves had it been scripted by a bestselling novelist like Kelsey's mom, Karen Kingsbury. In fact, if you asked them, Kyle and Kelsey would name God as the author of their story. And they're glad they trusted him to write it for them. Unfortunately, too many girls hoping for their own happily-ever-after have taken matters into their own hands, chasing after boys when they should be chasing after God. And that inevitably leads to heartache, low self-esteem, and poor choices as girls give in to pressure from media and peers to look and act a certain way to attract guys. Kyle and Kelsey want girls to know that it's never too late to trust God with their love lives, that wherever they are, there's always hope for the future. Through their own story and the stories of others who long for love, they show girls how to put God first, how to value and protect their purity, how to deal with loneliness and bullying, and how to see themselves as God does--a one-in-a-million girl who deserves no less than God's best.

The World Safety Net (WSN) has assigned Jake Jessup to Haiti to chase down and capture a conspirator named Jonas Dasir who was feigning as a Haitian police captain. He has dodged being extradited for nearly ten years. The World Safety Net was funded by an alliance of anonymous billionaires from around the world. Jake worked well with temporary contracts that were offered by the WSN to capture or eliminate terrorist cells that were disrupting world peace. The WSN did not have ties to the Feds or to any local authority. The World Safety Net was a dark ops organization that was autonomous and self-governing. Jake liked to think of himself as a rogue that took matters into his own hands to get the job done. What and how he can accomplish an objective was not entirely the wrong way, just definitely not the politically correct way. When he was younger, Jake worked as an assassin with the CIA and undercover with the FBI. Through the years, his sniper training has paid off for covert operations, but that was all in the past. Traveling with Jake was Mia Frison, an attractive Haitian-French mix who has her own set of skills. After attempting to save a young man from police brutality, Jake was beaten and abducted. As he was kidnapped, he must deal with his own mortality. Jessup is an agent who has specific skills to complete covert missions for the sake of world and statewide security. He completes them in a timely manner. Further assignments await the both of them, but Jake knows it is one mission at a time. The Chase goes from one extreme terrorism plot to another. Various missions go from Haiti to Washington, DC, then on to Canada and back. The final plot has to do with nationwide cyber-attack: a virus named “DEMO-MAN” that was connected with the terror group Boko Haram attempt to cripple the largest retailer in the United States. With this fast-paced adventure, you will keep the pages turning until the last chapter.
