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.

    "Great book!"

    Loved the story, characters, and narrator. It has humor, action, with a little (maybe) romantic interest.

    "Entertaining and engaging ride"
    What made the experience of listening to The Heist the most enjoyable?

    This is my first read of Janet's work. I really enjoyed her characters and the witty banter. This is a great light summer read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the whole con and how it played out.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My first listen to him. He had the right intensity and tone throughout the book.

    "Not at all what I expected...."
    What was most disappointing about Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg ’s story?

    The story was not what I expected, actually couldn't the finish the book. It just seemed to drag on and on. Not for me!!


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    Seemed a bit monotoned... Dull.

    Story
    "Scott Brick brought me to this series"
    If you could sum up The Heist in three words, what would they be?

    I'd listen to almost any book read by Scott Brick, especially stories that have an important female character - he does females well, with only a small tweek of inflection.

    These books are fun entertainment for a ride in the car where you're turning the story off and on - you don't have to worry about forgetting where you are in the story.

    "not a bad one"

    I enjoyed the book but seemed to be a little slow for me, entertaining but just so much, I certainly didn't find myself thinking about the story outside of the listen.

    Story
    "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.
