The Heist introduces a new female lead character who shoots like a sniper, eats like a starving man, and amazingly (to her) can con the pants off nearly anyone! Kate O'Hare is an ex-Navy Seal turned FBI agent who has spent five years chasing down elusive con-man and thief Nick Fox...only to have her world turned upside down when her bosses decide she and Nick should team up to bring down a man who has embezzled five hundred million dollars and disappeared. With Nick planning the elaborate con, a buxom woman named Willie as their wheel-woman, and two others working to set the scene; Kate must put aside her moral and legal objections and learn to play well with others...and resist her new-found desire to play a game for two with the sexy and charismatic Nick.
If you enjoy Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels (or any of her other series for that matter) I would recommend this title for you. You will laugh, smile, and be greatly entertained. This book is available for purchase in bookstores, or through the public library in book, Ebook, or audiobook formats.
