"Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O'Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that's what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O'Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can't touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace. Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars--and their lives--in an attempt to topple Trace's empire. It's a scam that will take Fox and O'Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu's North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup--a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, Kate's father, and an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?"--

Just finished reading. Very enjoyable and riveting. Clever plot of scam as are all the books in the Fox and O'Hare series. Witty dialogue, excellent descriptive narratives. Janet and Lee are an excellent team and hope they keep this series going. Highly recommend it.

Being an eternal optimist I read the whole book. My conclusion, without a doubt this is the worst book I have ever read.

If you like the Stephanie Plum series you will love Fox and O'hare. Quarky, fun and full of action.

Quick, light read. I like Nick, Kate, and Jake, but feel like this series is getting repetitive. Hoping the next one is better.

This series is a lot of fun to read with its laugh-out-loud high jinks and comments. Be sure to read them in order

Very disappointing. Had high hopes for this series after reading the first one. I'm glad I didn't waste money on "The Scam," but I am frustrated that I spent my precious time reading it. I couldn't quite believe it was as awful as it was, so I kept reading to see if it would get better. Not only did it not get better, it got progressively worse.
