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.

It was a a roller coaster ride!
he has so much realism!!
made me sit up and take notice - I was concerned about the ending
This was a fun ride!!
I love audio books. Makes driving so much more entertaining.
Listening to this book was so amazing. It kept me fully entertained and the narrator did a great job with his voices.
A great moment was the ability to describe the different locations with such detail with out making it drag on.
They all were
I really wanted to listen to it in one sitting but stopping and starting wasn't so bad.
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.
A long time reader and listener - I just can't get enough of Audible! (Especially mysteries and Buddhist texts and history and ...etc!
I had a great time listening to this book. I like Evanovich in moderate doses - and as this book was a totally new book without all the same characters, I really enjoyed it. I also have read or listened to all of Goldberg's Mr. Monk books, so I knew this book would be good,.
And it was really good. Oh - it won't win any literary prizes for sure; it was predictable, but it was a really frivolous, fun, adventurous and humorous listen!
If you like books by Jennifer Crusie - I highly recommend The Heist by Evanovich and Goldberg. The story line is a bit far-fetched, as are some of the things that happen, but it's a total work of fiction, meant to have a bit of fun.
So - sit back and just enjoy the heist!
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.
Really enjoyed this book and loved the narrator - Scott Brick he is great as the narrator and wouldn't wanted anyone else to read it to me!
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.
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.
I loved Kate's relationship with her dad. So funny.
Scott Brick did a great job. His performance as Kate was my favourite.
This was so good I found myself sitting in the garage at home. If mystery/romance/comedy is your think download right now.
Scott, as always WONDERFUL
Laugh out loud
Get the book now.
Janet and Lee hurry for book 2!!!
I enjoyed the collaboration between Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, both lending perspective to the fun story. Nice easy read.
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.
