About the book:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Janet Evanovich returns with the launch of a blockbuster new series that blends wild adventure, hugely appealing characters, and pitch-perfect humor, proving once again why she’s “the most popular mystery writer alive” (The New York Times).
Lost something? Gabriela Rose knows how to get it back. As a recovery agent, she’s hired by individuals and companies seeking lost treasures, stolen heirlooms, or missing assets of any kind. She’s reliable, cool under pressure, and well trained in weapons of all types. But Gabriela’s latest job isn’t for some bamboozled billionaire, it’s for her own family, whose home is going to be wiped off the map if they can’t come up with a lot of money fast.
Inspired by an old family legend, Gabriela sets off for the jungles of Peru in pursuit of the Ring of Solomon and the lost treasure of Lima. But this particular job comes with a huge problem attached to it—Gabriela’s ex-husband, Rafer. It’s Rafer who has the map that possibly points the way to the treasure, and he’s not about to let Gabriela find it without him.
Rafer is as relaxed as Gabriela is driven, and he has a lifetime’s experience getting under his ex-wife’s skin. But when they aren’t bickering about old times the two make a formidable team, and it’s going to take a team to defeat the vicious drug lord who has also been searching for the fabled ring. A drug lord who doesn’t mind leaving a large body count behind him to get it.
The Recovery Agent marks the start of an irresistible new series that will have you clamoring for more and cheering for the unstoppable Gabriela Rose on every page.
The Recovery Agent by Janet Evanovich is the first in a new adventurous mystery series Gabriela Rose. The story in The Recovery Agent is being compared to things like Indiana Jones or Romancing the Stone which is a fair comparison.
Gabriela Rose is a recovery agent, someone that is hired to find lost treasures of any kind whatever the reasoning whether it’s lost or stolen or even insurance theft Gabriela tracks things down. When Gabriela returns from finishing her latest mission to visit her family she finds that they need her services too. The family believes there is a treasure out there that will help save their small town from developers.
Janet Evanovich is a huge author that I haven’t had much opportunity to read myself so seeing that The Recovery Agent was a new series I had to hop right in. The thing I found with this new series is it was a lot of over the top action which really I kept thinking this would probably make a great movie but for me isn’t my favorite to read. The story was solid with a lot of laughs along the way so if action and adventure is up your alley you may enjoy this one a lot more than I did myself.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
