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.

    "Not just another Stephanie Plum!"
    Where does The Heist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Trying to rank a single book among all the audiobooks I've listened to so far is like trying to rank one food among all the food I've ever tasted,,,, It just depends on what you are in the mood for at any given time. This was a good one..Let's call it a great steak dinner!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot had enough twists and turns to keep my interest. Just when I was sitting back with a sigh and thinking it was all going well, some new apparent disaster loomed on the horizon to foil the plans of our heroes. Love the characters. I bought "The Heist" half fearing it would just be a slight twist on the Stephanie Plum books (don't get me wrong, I love Stephanie, Joe and Ranger... but was hoping for something a bit different) but Kate is not just another Stephanie Plum.. she's good at what she does! Nicolas is an excellent foil for her hardnosed sense of legal and moral ethics,, and his talent for the big con are amazing! There are enough hints of humor and slightly whacky characters to carry on the Evanovich tradition, but co-author Goldberg apparently has toned down the sometimes almost slapstick action and this is an excellent series on its own...worth a listen even if you are not a Plum fan!.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick narrates in his usual excellent fashion.. the narrator is a large part of the enjoyment of an audiobook, and Brick never disappoints.

    Story
    "Reminder of Crime TV Show"
    What made the experience of listening to The Heist the most enjoyable?

    It reminds me of the TV show "White Collar" with the FBI agent and criminal working together. It is very easy to follow, easy to picture what's being said, and the narrator is great!


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely recommend this book and will continue the series!

    "Not the right narrator for this story"

    The female characters sound stereotypical, and the male protagonist sounds like an unbelievably arrogant ass- makes any potential chemistry unbelievable.

    "A Fun Mystery"

    This is a fun police story ,a predictable catch the bad guy take down. A guy and a gal hooking up to go on the hunt for the thief. Some interesting characters help them out. Scott Brick's narration is great as always and makes the story even more fun. A good quick read. Janice

    "yeah, it's fun"

    light, fun, no brainer. I enjoyed it and I haven't enjoyed many books lately. I wasn't expecting much, and it delivered a bit more than that. I may get the next one when I need a break from Mc Carthy or the like.

    Story
    "THE STIFF LAW LADY VS. THE FUN LOVING CON ARTIST"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a fun read. Entertaining - and doesn't take itself too seriously.


    What other book might you compare The Heist to and why?

    Any of the other books in the Evanovich/Goldberg series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Nick dives off the roof to get away from Kate. It was funny and thrilling.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    NICOLAS FOX MAKES BEING BAD SO MUCH FUN.
