“The Recovery Agent” is the first book in Janet Evanovich’s new series. As a recovery agent Gabriella Rose is 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 kinds. Her latest job is for her own family. They need a lot of money fast to save their home. Inspired by an old family legend, Gabriella sets off for the jungle of Peru in search of the Seal of Solomon and the Lost Treasure of Lima. There’s just one problem, the map that could point the way to the treasure belongs to her ex-husband – and he’s not letting it out of his possession. “The Recovery Agent” is available on CD and digitally in Libby.
