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.

    "New series I hope"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Heist to be better than the print version?

    Listening to this book was so amazing. It kept me fully entertained and the narrator did a great job with his voices.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heist?

    A great moment was the ability to describe the different locations with such detail with out making it drag on.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    They all were


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I really wanted to listen to it in one sitting but stopping and starting wasn't so bad.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very well written. The best part was that the ending was written to give reader closure on the characters but a person could hope to find out more.

    "Couldn't wait for it to end"

    I love Jane Evanovich, so I was excited about a new series. This was so boring, I couldn't wait for it to end! There was really nothing good about it I am sad to say.

    "The Heist = Entertainment"

    This was a great book. Fun characters, good tight plot, lots of suspense, no gaping holes in the plot....I was pleasantly surprised. It's not a typical Plum novel, but it was very good. I can't wait for the next one.

    "Loved it!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. I have been a fan of the plum series for years but have been pretty disappointed with the last few books. They had become same old, same old to me. I loved these new characters!!! They are fresh and funny.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Kate's relationship with her dad. So funny.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Scott Brick did a great job. His performance as Kate was my favourite.

    "Predictable and tries too hard"

    With not much character development, we are supposed to enjoy the tired clichés of characters.

    I feels like a tired movie script.

    Don't get me wrong here. I Love Evanovich. Why she put her name to this book I do not know. The female character is weak and not likable. All the characters go from scene to scene with out us really caring about the characters. The idea is like an Oceans 11, but that relies on the likability of the characters. I did not like the characters.

    Do not spend your $$ on this book. Not worth it.

    "Yawn"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg again?

    No. Had great hope for these authors but no.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Show, flat or weird inflection. Got .05% better as continued but just - weird. Struggled to listen. Trying to finish but like pulling teeth or fingernails on blackboard.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Could have been so much better with a little humor and losing some of drag in the start. Took forever to set up relationship. Opportunity lost in Greece - too much snark, not enough humor. Just heard comparison to Silence of Lambs - best lines.


    Any additional comments?

    So disappointed. If try another - doubtful - will read book to see if that helps.
