BOOK REVIEW: The Bounty (Fox & O'Hare #7) by Janet Evanovich & Steve Hamilton
SynopsisType A special agent Kate O’Hare and international criminal Nick Fox have brought down some of the biggest bad guys out there. But now they face their most dangerous foe yet—a vast, shadowy international organization known only as the Brotherhood.
Directly descended from the Vatican Bank priests who served Hitler during World War II, the Brotherhood is on a frantic search for a lost train loaded with $30 billion in Nazi gold, untouched for over seventy-five years somewhere in the mountains of Eastern Europe.
Kate and Nick know that there is only one man who can find the fortune and bring down the Brotherhood—the same man who taught Nick everything he knows—his father, Quentin. As the stakes get higher, they must also rely on Kate’s own father, Jake, who shares his daughter’s grit and stubbornness.
From a remote monastery in the Swiss Alps to the lawless desert of the Western Sahara, Kate, Nick, and the two men who made them who they are today must crisscross the world in a desperate scramble to stop their deadliest foe in the biggest adventure of their lives.
Filled with Evanovich's humor this book could easily be a stand alone. I haven't read any of the other books in this series and I didn't feel lost at all.
This is a whirlwind trip across Europe on a treasure hunt for Nazi gold. The white extremist group known as The Brotherhood is close on their heels as they uncover one clue at a time. In many ways this book reminded me of the movie National Treasure. As Kate and Nick and their fathers, Jake and Quentin along with a professor of German literature try to decipher the clues to find the lost treasure of Hitler. It was a fun escape from reality and a very easy read.
