The Heist (Fox and O'Hare #1) by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg
Publication Date:June 18, 2013
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 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.
My Review:The Heist (Fox and O'Hare #1) by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg
I have had this on my TBR pile for awhile and realized that next week the new book is out. I loved it. It was funny, drama, twists around each corner.
I loved the characters. Can't wait till the The Chase comes out next week. Or tomorrow it is already on my kindle.
FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare is my hero. She is smart, strong and tough. She was a navy Seal before she joined the FBI. She is assigned to capture conman Nicolas Fox. She believes in catching the bad guys. Kate is willing to go far to catch him.
Nicolas Fox is a con man. He has complex cons. He knows a lot about Kate and flirts with her and makes fun of her. He is also attracted to her.
I admit I like him.
Their are a cast of characters that work with each group. Then their is Kate's family. Her sister posts information on facebook that Nick gets information about her. Their is her father who has been a soldier fighting all over the world.
Now Kate and Nick have to work together to bring bigger bad guys in. They face pirates, bad guys, and get their own crew together while at the same time Nick is still wanted. (It reminds me of Alias Smith and Jones ) Humor, action drama and bad guys helping to catch bad guys.
The setting for this book is all around the world. My favorite the chocolate café in Germany.
Fast paced book. I will read the next book The Chase this weekend.
I bought the book from book of month club.
