Summary

From Janet Evanovich, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, best-selling 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.

Entertaining Read

What made the experience of listening to The Heist the most enjoyable?

The concept of the characters is very good and the scenarios of the heists are really creative.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Nicolas Fox, he is a very likeable character and the con's he puts together are very inventive. I also love Kate's Dad the way he can get anyone in any part of the world to storm into countries with him. Reminds me of the old Arnie / Stallone characters.

Any additional comments?

I definitely missed Lorelei King narrating the book. She has done an amazing job with the Stephanie Plum novels and gives a distinct voice to every character. It just brings the whole story to life. Whereas Scott Brick is OK but he is one of those narrators which gives a slight lilt to his voice for different characters. All in all it was good but just fell short of being excellent.
