Overview

Inside the B&N Hardcover Special Edition of The Heist, you will find:

~ The Caper: a never before published mini adventure featuring Kate O'Hare and Nicolas Fox, the characters from The Heist
~ High Quality Euro Stickers: Every hardcover edition of THE HEIST contains two euro stickers: I "heart" Plum and The Con is On!

From Janet Evanovich, #1 New York Times 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.

Biography

When plucky Stephanie Plum lost her job as a lingerie buyer, she had little other choice than to take a position working for her cousin Vinnie's bail-bonds office where she'd spend her days and nights hunting down fugitives, solving mysteries, and falling ass-backwards into adventure. Come to think of it, Ms. Plum has more than a little in common with her creator Janet Evanovich.

Much like the panty-pushing Plum, Evanovich once made her trade in erotica as a romance novelist for the trashy Bantam series "Loveswept." Tiring of the genre and finding herself increasingly fixated on crime, mystery, and the kind of adventures she came to love through comic books like Uncle Scrooge, she decided to ditch steamy stories in favor of off-the-wall humor and feats of daring. As Evanovich said on her website, "after twelve romance novels I ran out of sexual positions and decided to move into the mystery genre."

The resulting Stephanie Plum Mysteries reflect Evanovich's love for comics, toys, shoe-shopping, Cheez Doodles, and beer. Evanovich also created a memorable character that shares many of the author's distinctive traits, such as her self-effacing, dirty-minded wit. The Plum Mysteries, while often rambling and thin on plot, are never anything less than entertaining, hilarious, and refreshing in every way.

Stephanie Plum made her debut in 1994's One For the Money, in which she tracked down Joe Morelli, an ex-cop and murder suspect who'd also been guilty of taking Stephanie's virginity when she was 18. The novel's sly mix of sexiness and childlike playfulness made for a sort of young adult novel for adults.

Since then, the red-hot bounty hunter and a crew of misfits that includes retired hooker Lula, aging bail-jumper Eddie Decooch, and Plum's own hipster granny have romped their way "through the numbers," establishing Evanovich as one of the best and most inventive writers of "Strong Woman" mysteries and guaranteeing her a place on the New York Times bestseller list.

In 2004, Evanovich introduced a smart, savvy new series featuring Alexander "Barney" Barnaby, a sexy Baltimore car mechanic, NASCAR nut, and amateur sleuth with her own posse of delightful eccentrics. She's not Plum, but she's definitely a peach. Hey, what else would you expect from a Janet Evanovich heroine?

Good To Know

Evanovich's motorcycle-riding daughter Alex has created an online comic about her hamster called "Batster," which her mother proudly displays on her web site. With episodes like "Batster vs. Beerzilla," it's clear that wackiness runs in the Evanovich genes.

If you think the Stephanie Plum novels are zany, wait till you hear about what Evanovich was writing before she started getting published. As she explains on her web site, "The first story [I ever wrote] was about the pornographic adventures of a fairy who lived in a second rate fairy forest in Pennsylvania."

    A Fun Summer Read. I wasn¿t sure what to expect from this book.

    A Fun Summer Read.
    I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. Would it be Stephanie Plum meets David Niven or Jonathan and Jennifer Hart from the old T.V. series? It was closer to the second but with a hint of the first. Kate O’ Hare is an FBI agent who has spent years of her life chasing Nick Fox, a smooth talking con man. She finally gets him and he manages to escape. She tracks him down in some ancient Greek monastery only to discover that the FBI engineered his escape so they could use him to catch a bigger fish. Kate ends up partnering with Nick and a crew of other folks to get a swindling hedge fund manager who took a half billion dollars and disappeared. They embark on an adventure that takes them all the way to Indonesia and back.
    I really liked this book. Kate is a hard-nosed and competent agent with the only hint of Stephanie being her inability to eat without spilling food over herself. She has a loving father with an ex-Marine past but who still has contacts that come in handy for Kate’s mission. Nick is a charming, debonair, well-educated con man who is always looking for the next big score. I got a big kick out of the aliases he uses for his various cons. While there is a whiff of romantic tension between them, the primary theme of the book is the con and the danger it involves. The secondary characters are exactly that but we learn enough about them to be important to the story.
    The book is written by the team of Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and the two viewpoints blend seamlessly. You can see Mr. Goldberg’s T.V. experience in the knowledge he has of special effects and how they can be used. Both he and Ms. Evanovich are used to dealing with quirky characters and they keep that fairly subtle in this book. There is a definite sense that this is the first book in a series based on the ending. I hope so; I’d enjoy reading another book with these two characters.

    I enjoy this author but was getting a bit tired of the Plum series. This book was a nice change but still held all the good things I enjoy from an Evanovich story. It was fun to read as my first read of the summer.

    A fun read. I think fans of Stephanie Plum will also like Kate O'Hare, the FBI agent hell bent on putting charming con man Nicolas Fox behind bars but never quite succeeding. I enjoyed the prequel, Pros and Cons, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    When I read the short story preamble to this novel, Pros & C

    When I read the short story preamble to this novel, Pros &amp; Cons, I posted the following review: &quot;This was a disappointment. I have long been a fan of both Lee Goldberg and Janet Evanovich, but this story failed to come to life. Though a coupleof the secondary characters gave promise of being interesting, there was no sense of life in either protagonist. Nick Fox was a blank, suitable for appearing on a Batchelor show, Kate was painted as a slob from the first paragraph and never rose above it. She never emerges as a real person. The big scene at the end of the wedding was flat. I will likely read The Heist, just because, but I have lost my sense of enthusiastically looking forward to it.&quot; I started The Heist, but gave it up after a few chapters. What I said in my original review still stands. The book has no life. I rarely put a book down unread, but there is nothing here to  pique even a little of my interest. I had hoped for much more.

    Janet Evonovich's writing is still sinking into mediocre. As Stephanie Plum books get more and more boring and trite; this book starts out that way. Full of cliched and overused personalities (what little personality there is). Kate, the tough female FBI agent that despite being a former Navy Seal is naive and downright virignal when it comes to men. Nick the world wise con-artist that can make magic just by speaking. There are two bright spots in the whole book is Kate's father (ex-military that has innumerable covert operations to his name) and Willie, a middle-aged cougar that can drive or fly anything and is always looking for her next adventure. If you are looking for light drivvel that takes no thought to read for beach reading- this is the book for you. If you want an enjoyable lots of fun book that will keep you enthralled for hours- go back to the very early Stephanie Plum books. I may read future installments of this book but only free from the library. Will not be wasting my hard-earned money again.

    I didn’t finish reading The Heist because I could not get past my annoyance with the portrayal of Kate O’Hare. It was apparent there was very little, if any, research done. First, women are still barred from being Navy SEALS. Also, I am retired military, female, and currently an investigator for the federal government. I was slightly offended with the idea the Navy “allowed” Kate O’Hare to resign her commission after she decked her Commander for groping her. That’s not how it works. Also, being so indecisive about her looks prior to her interview with Nick; cleavage/no cleavage, hair up or down? Get a grip! I not only didn’t finish this but have no interest in reading any sequels. I like Janet Evanovich’s previous books and was extremely disappointed in this one.

    Don't waste your money

    I so badly wanted to like this book as I love her Stephanie Plum series but it was not to be. The two main characters in the book just weren't likeable. I couldn't have cared less how the story ended for them. The story line is just too far fetched. Sorry Janet! Stick with writing the Plum series maybe if you didn't waste your time with this stuff you could write more than one Plum book a year.
