This is book number 2 in the The Recovery Agent Series series.


“Thriller master” (Mystery and Suspense Magazine) Janet Evanovich takes readers on a global hunt to track down missing masterpieces in this action-packed and steamy sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller The Recovery Agent.

Gabriela Rose, recovery agent extraordinaire, can find just about anything. Too bad she can’t seem to lose her gorgeous-but-infuriating ex-husband Rafer Jones. And now he needs her help. His cousin, Harley, is in trouble…big trouble.

As the president of a too-big-to-fail bank, he invested an astronomical amount of money in insuring some of the world’s most priceless artifacts at the urging of his board. It seemed like a low-risk, high-reward business move, so he jumped in with both feet. But recently, these insured pieces started going missing and worse, there’s no paper trail of Harley being directed to make these risky investments. Unless the artwork can be recovered soon, it looks like Harley is going to be heading to jail as the fall guy for an ingenious crime.

Gabriela knows what she must do: travel around the world with Rafer to find the missing works of art, keep Harley out of jail, and save both his skin and his bank. Along the way, she’ll encounter corruption, threats, murder, mysterious dark forces behind a global conspiracy to destroy the world’s wealth, and a nefarious villain who will stop at nothing to bring the world to the brink of ruin.

Praise For…

Praise for the Recovery Agent Series

“Tense, suspenseful, funny, and wise—no one does it better than Evanovich.” —Lee Child

“The thriller master, Janet Evanovich, has launched a new series. Prepare for twists, action, and one of the best books of the year.” —Mystery & Suspense

“An action-packed adventure that delights much like the Indiana Jones films and the classic Romancing the Stone. It has everything, from killer snakes, military-grade assault weapons, and human sacrifice to romance and some top shelf lingerie that comes in handy for treating the wounded. A rollicking adventure and a great start to a new series.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Moves at lightning speed and never stops…This new series feels distinct from Evanovich’s other hits, but every bit as addictive.” —Mystery Scene Magazine

“Nobody cross-pollinates funny banter and unresolved sexual tension to better effect than Evanovich, and the mystery is all action, too.” —Amazon Book Review

 “I burned through The Recovery Agent…Just read and enjoy. I know I did.” —Sarah Weinman, The New York Times

 “A breezy, action-packed caper, told with JE’s signature humor.” —AARP
