A stoner, an Instagram model, a Czech oligarch, and a missing unicorn. Nick Fox and Kate O’Hare have their work cut out for them in their weirdest, wildest adventure yet in this latest entry in the New York Times bestselling series by Janet and Peter Evanovich.

Straight arrow FBI agent Kate O’Hare and charming conman Nicolas Fox are on the hunt for a kidnapped billionaire in the latest installment of the series reviewers call a “wild ride” (Kirkus Reviews). It should be a breeze after taking down drug cartels and thwarting terrorists. But to succeed they’ll have to face their greatest challenge…putting up with each other.

The missing man is a Silicon Valley bigshot known to all as the Big Kahuna. Nick and Kate’s only lead takes them to Hawaii where the missing man’s free spirit, drop-out son spends his days looking for the perfect wave and his nights puffing weed.

To get close to the Kahuna’s son, Kate and Nick go undercover as a married couple in the big wave surfer community on Maui’s North Shore. Living a laid back, hippy-dippy lifestyle isn’t exactly in Kate’s wheelhouse, but the only thing more horrifying is shacking up with Nick Fox—even if he does look pretty gnarly on a longboard. If they don’t catch a break soon, waves aren’t the only thing she’s going to be shredding (or bedding).

Story Locale: Hawaii, Prague, New Zealand

Series Overview: Charming conman, Nicolas Fox, and straight-arrow FBI agent, Kate O’Hare, team to bring down the international criminals that the law can’t touch.

MEGA-BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Janet Evanovich is a #1 New York Times bestselling-author and one of the most successful authors of the last two decades.

BEST COAUTHORED SERIES IN THE FRANCHISE: Evanovich has several coauthored series, but Fox and O’Hare is the best written, the best reviewed, and offers the most Plum-like experience. Each book in the series combines the witty capers of a Mission: Impossible with the “Will they? Won’t they?” hook of the most successful rom-coms.

FIRST ENTRY IN THE SERIES AFTER AN ALMOST THREE-YEAR BREAK: The last book, The Pursuit, pubbed in June 2016. It hit #8 on the New York Times bestseller list.

BACK ON TRACK: We have another Fox & O’Hare coming in Spring ’20 and plan to continue on a yearly basis after that.

SERIES APPEALS TO BOTH MALE AND FEMALE READERS: This series is intended to appeal both to Evanovich’s overwhelming female readership and to bring in male readers.
