Emerson Knight is introverted, eccentric, and has little to no sense of social etiquette. Good thing he's also brilliant, rich, and (some people might say) handsome, or he'd probably be homeless. Riley Moon has just graduated from Harvard Business and Harvard Law. Her aggressive Texas spitfire attitude has helped her land her dream job as a junior analyst with mega-bank Blane-Grunwald. At least Riley Moon thought it was her dream job, until she is given her first assignment: babysitting Emerson Knight.
What starts off as an inquiry about missing bank funds in the Knight account leads to inquiries about a missing man, missing gold, and a life-and-death race across the country. Through the streets of Washington, D.C., and down into the underground vault of the Federal Reserve in New York City, an evil plan is exposed. A plan so sinister that only a megalomaniac could think it up, and only the unlikely duo of the irrepressibly charming Emerson Knight and the tenacious Riley Moon can stop it.
What a great book! I hadn't read any of Janet Evanovich's books until now. I really want to read more of them. Emerson and Riley are total opposites but that doesn't stop them from working together to get to the bottom of the missing man and gold. Using Emerson's family money and influence to travel across the country tracking fake gold and doing their best to stay alive. Riley goes from thinking she's babysitting Emerson to seeing his true talents. Will it be enough?
