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 new 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.
I have to admit that at first, I was hesitant to read this new series from Janet Evanovich. I was afraid that the character would sound like Stephanie. Don’t get me wrong. I love Stephanie Plum. But I didn’t want to read a book with Stephanie’s twin. Thankfully, Agent Kate O’Hare sound nothing like Stephanie.

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare has been after an international con man, Nicolas Fox for years. When Kate finally caught him and has him behind bars, Nicolas pulled another con and convinced the FBI to offer him a job. Now Kate has to work alongside with Nicolas. And their first case is to find some big money stolen by a corrupted investment banker.

I love both Kate and Nicolas. Kate is one smart, sexy, kick-ass heroine. And Nicolas is handsome, funny, clever and a bit sneaky con man. They are very dissimilar. But when the two are together, they made a great pair. They have a really great chemistry. The supporting characters were a great addition to the book. I really like the relationship between Kate and her dad and was hoping to see more of them soon.

I wish I didn’t wait this long to read this book. The Heist is a very exciting, entertaining and fun read.  There is definitely more action in this book. The plot was exciting and the dialogue was really good and hilarious! I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to read the next book from the series.
