Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg
July 22, 2013 - Amy Phelps
A 'caper' brings an FBI agent and a con artist together in bestselling authors Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's new book, "The Heist."
Kate O'Hare whole career for the past five years has been nothing but tracking down and trying to catch the elusive Nicolas Fox. Fox has run large numbers of con artist schemes, from black market organ replacement to trying to steal a rare stone, and Kate has been nipping at his heels the whole time. When she finally takes him down, she finds her career a bit bland after that - trying to catch people who pirate movies on the Internet just isn't the same. But when Fox escapes from the courthouse on his way to his trial, Kate is determined to catch him again only to be told she's off the case. Tracking him down anyway, she finds that he is now working for the FBI, trying to stop a corrupt investment banker, and the FBI want Kate on the case too. As Fox assembles a team of criminals, actors and even Kate's dad, she must figure out if she can work with the man she formerly "wanted," but now does she want him in a whole different way?
An "Ocean's Eleven"-type caper with plenty of wit and chemistry between a straight-laced FBI agent and a con man, this is one that will thrill and make you laugh - a perfect read for vacation.
"The Heist" is published by Bantam. It is $28 and 304 pages long.
