The Heist

The Heist (Kate O'Hare, #1)
by Janet Evanovitch and Lee Goldberg
Bantam Books, 2013. 304 pgs. Fiction

Kate O’Hare has caught her man; crook Nicolas Fox has finally been captured and brought to justice. Then Nick Fox pulls off the greatest con of all: he persuades the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Kate to catch other people living on the wrong side of the law. As the two band together to stop a corrupt investment banker who's hiding on a private island in Indonesia it is going to be the ultimate test of O'Hare's patience and Fox's skill.

I really enjoyed reading this book, Nick has a fun sense of humor and some of the best parts of the book are when he gets under Kate’s skin. The authors also did a really good job inventing the side characters of the story. It is really fun how they add to the plot from Boyd who immerses himself in any acting position to Willie who is a lead footed lady who will drive anything whether she has been thoroughly  trained in the equipment or not. If you are a fan of a light but fast paced read this is an entertaining story.

An off-the-record-job with questionable methods makes this a hilarious and exciting story that’s hard to put down. I really enjoyed the witty banter and exotic setting. This has become one of my favorites to recommend when people need something clean, exciting, and light to read. It has an Oceans 11 feel, and is something I can easily recommend if you liked the movie. Additionally, because it’s the first in a series, if you really enjoy it you don’t have to let the characters go just yet!
