The Heist by Janet Evanovich, Lee Goldberg
  

Lovereading view...

The first in a new four book series (and if you love this then be sure to read The Chase next), The Heist is punchy, fast moving and brilliant fun. If you like your plots realistic this is probably one to avoid but if you want a book that is filled with big characters and lots of action then this is perfect for you, though fans of Evanovich should note that it’s a little less laugh out loud than the Stephanie Plum series.

Synopsis

The Heist by Janet Evanovich, Lee Goldberg

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.
