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.

    "Loved it!"
    Where does The Heist rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can't wait to listen to book #2. I was looking for another book series like Evanovich's Plum series to take up time in between books and I have found it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the independence of the character and the sense of adventure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the boat scene where she fired the big gun.

    "ok"

    If you enjoyed watching Leverage and White Collar on Television, and you don't mind that those plot scenarios are regurgitated then you will love this book. Sadly, I do and was disappointed.

    "The A Team"

    This book's story reminded me of the A-Team. Totally unbelievable characters and "mission," and yet it was a fun read.

    "Not Stephanie Plum"
    What did you love best about The Heist?

    I am an avid Janet Evanovich fan. I didn't know if I would like these new characters of hers, nor the fact that she was writing a book with someone else. I am happy to say I was worried for nothing. I love, love, love these new books and their characters. I love ongoing characters because I feel as though I know them and the things they've already done/achieved. I have heard them all, and am waiting with baited breath for a new book to come out. Evanovich and Goldberg, you're not writing quick enough, and keep up the great work and storylines.


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

    I just love all the characters involved. How they interact, etc.

    "WITTY AND FUN AGAIN."
    What did you love best about The Heist?

    All of the characters are fun. Love the idea of ex navy seal turned fbi agent is unique.


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

    The plot was intriguing and kept me listening.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    He has the tones and nuances down perfect

    "Really Fun Story"
    What other book might you compare The Heist to and why?

    I like Janet E. in general, but I think this is one of her better books. Not quite so outlandish which actually made it a better story. I'm getting the second book in the series because I enjoyed this first one so much.


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

    Scott Brick is always great.

    Story
    "Pleasant surprise!!"
    Would you listen to The Heist again? Why?

    Yes! The plot is so detailed, and convoluted, that it definitely requires a second (and now third) listen.


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

    I was amazed at the twists in the plot. The planning of the different cons required some concentration to understand everything that was going on.


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

    I LOVE Scott Brick! He did a great job with the different characters. The scene with the corpse flower was spot on!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm sure people passing me on the road thought I had lost my mind in several places! It is funny, plain ole funny at times.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hesitant to buy this since the last few Plum books have been less than what I expect from Ms. Evanovich. I guess maybe having a co-writer added some new energy to her writing. The plot is NOT at all believable, but it is intriguing and at times laugh out loud funny.

    Story
    "Just so-so...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Fun, outlandish, crime drama, but this is one that would be better to read yourself than to listen to. Scott Brick is a great narrator but why would they pick him to narrate a book by and about a woman? The main charactor completely loses all personality when read by Mr. Brick.


    Would you recommend The Heist to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not in the audio book version.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Pace, maybe... Personality and charactor, no... I was actually glad when it ended.


    Do you think The Heist needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I see this as the first in a series. But, please, find a more suitable narrator!
