Publisher's Summary

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have teamed up for a dynamic new series featuring an FBI agent who’s on the hunt - and a master con artist who’s enjoying the chase. The con is on in this audiobook short story that’s a triumphant prequel to The Heist.

FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s 20th-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures while the self-proclaimed "King of Hostile Takeovers" is getting married, Kate is 85 percent - okay maybe 92 percent - sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox.

Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox? It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake Michigan go off.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Wonderful short story"

    I love the Fox and O'Hare series! Having Scott Brick read the books is frosting on the cake. I hope I'm not giving away too much by writing that Nick Fox gets away from FBI agent Kate O'Hare again. The question is, how did he do it this time?

    "Good Read - But not as good as Janet's other books"

    I love Scott Bricks voice. I go through all the samples just to hear him speak! lol Yes .. I am weird and a tad bit crazy - and these are the exact kind of books I like to read too! Pros and Cons - a Short Story was exactly that. A Short Story - so why all the sad faces and lesser than decent reviews kids? Anyway, this was a fun-ny story. Yes .. we all need to now go buy "The Heist'. But you can't blame anyone for smart marketing. Scott Brick made this listen all that much more awesome.

    Story
    "A past con with Kate as agent on the hunt"

    This short story one is good enough. It brings readers back to one of the cons referenced in the first book, to tell the full story. The long books are much better!

    I am loving this new series. The problem is that now that I've had a taste, I'm concerned the authors can't write new books fast enough to satisfy my appetite. Chemistry, intelligence, and fun, I want more!

    "mmmmm the voice of the narrator"

    liked the story but i'm still not sure i like the narrator. he reminds me of the konrath books to much. but i loved the story and it's full of character building. so it's a keeper.

    "Nice Teaser"
    Where does Pros and Cons: A Short Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not the best but it's not the worst.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I hated him. He made the female character sound whiny and pathetic. His female voices are really lacking.


    Who was the most memorable character of Pros and Cons: A Short Story and why?

    Obviously it was Nick. He was the most mysterious and most interesting.

    Story
    "A CUTE STORY OF AN ALLUSIVE THIEF"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pros and Cons: A Short Story to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Scott Brick makes it much livelier especially as Nick Fox.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nick Fox - the handsome, charming, incorrigible thief.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I like the way he plays some scenes totally tongue in cheek.


    If you could rename Pros and Cons: A Short Story, what would you call it?

    THE WEDDING CON

    Story
    "Great Marketing"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Great preview of the series. I did buy The Heist, and loved it!


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Not sure why publishers and or authors needed this second short story to promote The Heist, as the other short story did the job. This was just more great insight for what was to come. This was well done and needed its own story of just the full out chase of Fox.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    This was a great marketing ploy to see if authors had new interest and old fans support!
    I got this on sale so it was an even better buy to see if I wanted to invest in the series.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    I love Scott Bricks performance. I have no intension of buying the reads from this author by Lorelei King as I purchased this author due to Scott's performances. Scott has the best inflection for our heroine, making her smart and sexy. Of course he makes Fox sexy as all get out!
