Publisher's Summary

From Janet Evanovich, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, best-selling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying new series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail - particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman...even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: He convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Special Agent Kate O’Hare.

Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work...if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.

    "fun but somewhat predictable"

    fun story but rather simple as far as cons go. The best con stories are the stories that not only surprise the mark, but reader/listener/viewer.

    still enjoyable.

    "A little cheesy but enticing"

    Action and adventure, a touch of sexiness. Left me wanting to read the next book.

    "What an entertaining book!"

    This is a really lovely book! It's fun, as in almost funny but not quite comedy. The writing is witty - but not mad, as in Spike Milligan. There's suspense, but not the intense and morbid sort where people get caught and brutally tortured. The two protagonists: Fox and O'Hare, are absolutely lovable. Fox is a con artist. His cons are good (I wouldn't say brilliant, but good enough). I didn't really want the book to end, and, of course, I'll read the next book in this series. Only I'm concerned: will the authors be able to match this one?

    "Good crime caper"

    Co-author Lee Goldberg seems to have pumped some fresh blood into the Evanovich writing empire that had grown stale to me. THE HEIST is a globe-trotting, sometimes-tongue-in-cheek comedic crime novel about female FBI agent, Kate O'Hare, and con man, Nicky Fox.

    Narrator Scott Brick did a commendable performance.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Not quite Stephanie Plum"

    Not as good as her Plum series, but a worthwhile listen. Not as funny. Better narration than the Plums.

    "Can't wait to listen to the rest of the books!"

    I enjoy detective type novels and shows like The Blacklist. If you like things like this, then this book is for you.
