Summary
  • "Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum series, teams up with Emmy-winning writer Phoef Sutton for a brand-new series of thrillers featuring charmingly eccentric Emerson Knight and professional go-getter Riley Moon"--
  • "A brand-new series introducing a fun and entertaining crime-solving team with great romantic chemistry--fiesty financial analyst Riley Moon and eccentric savant Emerson Knight. Riley Moon is a junior analyst at a mega-bank, when she uncovers what looks like an embezzlement scheme that could lead straight to the top. With his gold gone missing and analysts disappearing, famously eccentric Emerson Knight, the bank's biggest client, decides to take on his own investigation. With Emerson's laserlike focus and ability to see clues no one else sees, and Riley's financial-whiz mind and street savvy, this unlikely pair will uncover one of the biggest crimes of the century"--

Review
  • In the first entry in a new series, Evanovich and Sutton have teamed up again to introduce Emerson Knight and Riley Moon. Moon is a Harvard MBA in her first job as an analyst for Blane-Grunwald, a large, privately held bank; Knight, the bank’s largest depositor, is young, good looking, and a bit of an eccentric. When he demands to see his gold deposits, Moon is dispatched to placate Knight at his home, Mysterioso Manor, which boasts wild animals roaming freely and a classic-car collection. Soon enough the two of them fall into an adventure that involves looking for a missing Grunwald partner, which in turn leads to an evil plot to steal the world’s gold. The humor occasionally borders on silly, but the one-liners fly at a ferocious pace, keeping the pages turning almost as quickly. Evanovich fans will find this closer in style to the Stephanie Plum series rather than the slightly more sophisticated Fox and O’Hare novels. -- Alesi, Stacy (Reviewed 9/1/2016) (Booklist, vol 113, number 1, p53)
  • Nancy Drew meets Goldfinger in this series kickoff from the indefatigable Evanovich and Emmy-winning TV writer Sutton.Riley Moon is low woman on the totem pole at Blane-Grunwald, so she's the sacrificial victim dispatched to Mysterioso Manor, in Washington, D.C., to persuade its eccentric lord, Emerson Knight, to review his portfolio. Knight—think of an autistic savant played by George Clooney—has other ideas. He demands to withdraw all the gold Blane-Grunwald is holding for him, or at least take a look at it. And the longer he talks, the less crazy the idea sounds, because he presents Riley with more and more compelling evidence that some highly placed forces have schemed to replace vast quantities of the gold bars the nation has locked away in high-security vaults with cunning counterfeits in order to inflate the value of their own unadulterated holdings. The obvious culprits are the family members of underachieving banker Günter Grunwald, missing and increasingly presumed dead after he smelled a rat among his brothers: Gen. Hans Grunwald, who heads the National Security Agency; Judge Manfred Grunwald, recently nominated to the Supreme Court; and Werner Grunwald, head honcho at Blane-Grunwald. But identifying them is a long step short of neutralizing them, especially when they have neutralizing plans of their own. Emmy and Riley—or Knight and Moon, as the series bills them—quickly establish exactly the sort of salt-and-pepper rapport fans of Stephanie Plum's adventures among male animals (Notorious Nineteen, 2013, etc.) would expect, this time spiced with high-speed, low-IQ action sequences that are a specialty of Sutton's (Crush, 2015, etc.). What's missing from the usual Evanovich solo and duet performances is low comedy. Beneath the obligatory trappings of the hero's non sequiturs and pet armadillo, there's surprisingly little in this wildly overscaled caper to tickle the funny bone.(Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2016)
