While her boss thinks she is both ambitious and tenacious, her friends consider her stubborn, tough and a little bit obsessed. Despite the fact Kate has made a good name for herself for the past 5 years, she cares most about Nicholas Fox who is an international crook. Kate wants him in a number of ways. She undertakes to hunt him down and hopefully bring him to book. Later on, things change.

Initially, he involved himself in crime for money but now does it merely for the excitement. Aware that FBI has been fiercely pursuing him, especially Kate O’Hare, who has been monitoring his every move. To him, there is no greater thrill than being trailed by a gorgeous woman, particularly one whose aim is to lock him up. However, when it appears Fox has been seized for good, he comes up with an amazing con; he convinces FBI to give him a job to work alongside special agent Kate.

Description of Two early Books in the series

1. The Pursuit

Nicholas Fox is abducted from a beachfront haven in Hawaii. Unknown to the abductor, Nick Fox has been working secretly for the FBI. Before long, Nicholas’s secret partner (Special Agent Kate O’Hare) ferociously pursues the criminal who kidnapped her conman. A thrill ensues. The path leads to Belgium, Italy, and France in the process pitting Kate and Nick against their iratest and deadliest enemy yet by the name Dragon Kovic. Kovic is a former Serbian military officer who is plotting a criminal activity that will earn him billions but will cost lives of thousands of Americans.

Kate and Nick are left with no option but to mount the riskiest, most daring and bold con they have ever endeavored to save a huge American city from a catastrophe of impressive proportions. Fortunately, the have the backing of Kate’s dad, Jake and a bizarre out-of-work actor himself a bandit who works best in the sewers. The pressure on Kate and Nick to make their plan works regardless of whether they have to lay their lives on the line or not is simply overwhelming.

2. The Scam

Everyone still thinks Nicholas Fox is a conman and a major thief who is on the run. However, in reality, both Fox and Kate are covertly working together to bring to bars super criminals who for some reasons the law cannot touch. Among such criminals is Evan Trace who is operating a money-laundering operation via his casino situated in Macau. Some of his most trusted customers are dictators, mobsters, and worldwide terrorists. Kate and Nick resort to deep undercover by faking high-stake gamblers. They, therefore, wager millions of dollars as well as their own lives in an effort to topple Evan’s empire.

The scam takes O’Hare and Fox from LV strip all the way to the sun-soaked seashores of Oahu’s North Shore, as well as right into the dark alleys of Macau. They have the backing of a self-absorbed actor who is also a Somali pirate and Jake, an Ex-Soldier who thinks a rocket launcher provides the best solution for dealing with every problem. Will everything go according to plan?
