Synopsis

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

I looked forward to the release of this book, and bought it as soon as it came out. I was not dissapointed. This book kept engrossed from start to finish. I was actually dissapointed to see it end. It had great suspense, and humor. I've read everything both these authors have written and I was very pleased with the outcome from both of them together. Kudos!!! Great read!!!

I love this collaboration between Evanovich and Goldberg. entertaining characters in a fun story line. Nothing like a group of quirky personalities brought together to pull off a caper. I sure hope this is just the beginning of a series! Love this kind of fun read!

Fun but not quite what I expected. Lots of action, ingenious cons, and endearing characters. What I missed is the laugh out loud humour I find and expect when Janet's name is on the cover. That said I will be waiting for the next book in anticipation of more adventure, more cons and the development of this group's relationships.
