In "The Chase," an artifact sacred to the Chinese government is in the possession of the Smithsonian Institution.

A deal is struck, and a representative from the Chinese plans to retrieve it. However, the one housed in the Smithsonian is a fake.

O’Hare and Fox must learn who stole the original, retrieve it, steal the replica and replace it with the real one. Can they pull off the various heists without anyone figuring out what they are doing?

Can they keep their alliance secret?

And will they be able to keep their budding feelings for each other alive, assuming they survive?

The characters are exciting, and the story escalates as the initial job becomes more elaborate.

Readers familiar with Evanovich’s novels will love this series and hope for more adventures by this writing duo.
