#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.


  • So disappointed

    By myfavoritehorse
    Most boring book ever. Where is Janet Evanovich and who wrote this? Not sure I’ll risk another book that is not a Stephanie Plum.
  • Meh! Don’t bother

    By Graitt
    Don’t waste your time or money. Worst effort by Janet. This is the first book in 15 years that I had to stop reading midway through. Just awful in every respect.
  • Junk

    Pure drivel
  • Oy

    This is by far her worst book. The name dropping of products became a joke and I’d screen shot to friends. I couldn’t finish. Got to chapter 21 and just had to stop and delete.
  • Coulda been 5 stars . . .

    By nehockeyfan
    Love the book, great story but seriously, you know a ton about clothes, spend 10 seconds and google some info about weapons. Ya did good later with the MP5 but did she clear her apartment with a Beretta camera? What caliber is 35mm? And Glock 9? How about Glock 17 9mm or Glock 19 9mm, Glock 9 isn’t a model. Anyway, I do love Janet’s stories and would recommend. 5 stars with some effort on the weapons. :-)
  • This new series rocks!

    By YSSAR
    This new series rocks. The characters are fun and funny. The storyline was complex, a bit bloodier than one might predict, but it holds together and seems necessary for the plot and these characters. I can’t wait for the next adventure. This is a seriously good series beginning. Definitely must read.
