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.

    "Nice surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a reluctant purchase due to the fact that I lost interest in Evanovich's writing style. Thankfully, The Heist was void of the usual and overdone slapstick "humor" in which JE crammed her books. This was an easy listen and worth the time and money. Good lazy day read.

    I am a retired psychologist with lots of time on my hands, thus I listen to a lot of books.

    "Trite and predictable"

    I loved Monk which I think Lee Goldberg wrote. And I also loved Janet Evanovich's series about the bail bonds business. But this writing was trite, predictable and the characters had no depth. Scott brick did a great job as usual. I wouldn't read another in this series.

    "What a (pleasant) change from the usual Evanovich"

    As some other reviewer mentioned, Evanovich's bond enforcer plot, though excellent for a while, had run its course and I agree. I know I returned the last Evanovich book. HOWEVER, this book, though not sure of publishing dates (2012?) vs her other books was truly entertaining and wildly fun and different from anything I've read by her. Loved the concept and characters (Willie the new LuLu? Fox the new Ranger?). And as always, could not find a better narrator than Scott Brick.
