The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Bestselling Author Janet Evanovich offers fun, light and enjoyable read

The Heist is the beginning of a brand new series by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg (bestselling author and writer for Monk). I am a huge Janet Evanovich fan and have read all of her Stephanie Plum series. The Heist was a fun, light read that was simply enjoyable. Not intense or overly complicated, The Heist, is a perfect beach read. Or at least was the perfect read for my beach trip.

This novel features Kate O’Hare, a FBI special agent known for her dedication and discipline and Nicolas Fox, a con man that Kate has spent five years of her life hunting down. After being arrested Nicolas makes a deal with the FBI to help them catch criminals off the books that have thus far evaded them.

This unlikely pair teams up much to Kate’s disapproval but with Nicolas’ suaveness and Kate’s keenness they prove to be a perfect match. They recruit a team of misfits and begin their first assignment to catch a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on his private island. From flamethrowers to pirates this first assignment is definitely not without unexpected challenges.
