NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Janet Evanovich, #1 bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, bestselling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.
Nicolas Fox is an international con man, famous for running elaborate scams on very rich and powerful people. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail for years—particularly FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare. But just when it seems that 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 O’Hare.
Their first assignment takes them to the side streets of Berlin, the California desert, and remote Indonesian islands as they team up to catch Derek Griffin, a corrupt investment banker charged with stealing millions from his clients. Finding Griffin on his private island is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. 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.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's The Chase.
Praise for The Heist
“The Heist is the perfect title to carry on a trip to the beach. The laugh out loud humor that readers expect from Evanovich is in full force, and Goldberg’s crafty and elaborate writing is prominent. . . . Everyone will be eager for the next book in the series.”—Associated Press
“The action is fast-paced and the writing is first-rate, making The Heist an excellent choice for vacation reading.”—Huntington News
“A breezy read.”—San Antonio Express-News
This first book in a new series by Evanovich and Goldberg follows hard-nosed FBI agent Kate O'Hare, who is on the hunt for charismatic conman Nick Fox, who besides being her query is also (unfortunately for Kate) her "dream man." Kate finds Nick, catches him, he escapes, and the next thing she knows, they're teamed at the FBI to bring down an even bigger threat. Scott Brick does a fine job narrating the book his reading is brisk and clear. Brick especially excels at depicting the sexually charged banter between Kate and Nick. He imbues both characters with distinct personalities. Kate is uptight, struggling with her baser instincts around Nick. And Nick is magnetic both coy and wisecracking. For readers who want a breezy adventure, this is the perfect production. A Bantam hardcover.
I need more!
This was such a cute read. If you are in need of a good mindless summertime read then this is the book for you. It has the action to keep your nose stuck in it and just a little bit of playful fun to keep things interesting. I loved reading this book and I really hope Janet is working the next book with Kate and nick!
I did not think it was possible to create a character as engaging as Stephanie Plum.... But I believe that Evanovich and Goldberg have done it! I look forward to the full release in June.
Fun, exciting, mystery wrapped around a romance! Perfect!
