Author(s): 

The odd couple of covert law enforcement is back as master con artist Nick Fox and FBI Agent Kate O’Hare join forces. The quips are flying, as are the fists and bullets. This wild and wacky romp crisscrosses the world as Fox and O’Hare hunt for stolen art while matching wits with some untouchable criminals. Laughter can be the best medicine, and this outlandish adventure provides a hefty dose.

Kate O’Hare is still having trouble accepting that instead of hunting con man Nick Fox, she’s working with him. Their latest mission is complicated and could cause a diplomatic incident. China wants back an ancient bronze statue of a rooster that has been on display at the Smithsonian for a century. The problem: The statue is a fake. The real one was stolen years ago, which means Kate and Nick have only a few days to find the real rooster and steal it back. It turns out ex-White House Chief of Staff, Carter Grove, has the statue, and he owns a ruthless black-ops security company that’s protecting the rooster like it’s Fort Knox.
