The first in a new series co-authored by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, The Heist introduces a very unlikely team of investigators. Kate O'Hare is a FBI Special Agent who has made a name for herself as a tenacious and ambitious woman who should go far in ther chosen line of work.

Nicholas Fox is an accomplished con man who has a reputation for conducting elaborate and successful scams on some very high-profile individuals. Fox has been leading O'Hare on a merry chase, but just when it looks like the game is up and she's got him cornered, he all but turns the table on his long time nemesis. Nicholas convinces Kate they'd be much better as a team rather than adversaries. So be it!

To test this somewhat dubious premise, the duo goes after a corrupt financial person holed up on a private island in Indonesia. This initial assignment will not only demand all the skills both individuals bring to the table but it will also determine if this is a partnership that has any legs. In between the breakneck action, brushes with pirates and the ridiculous gorging on Toblerone, a bond will be formed. but the question is, Will it last?

Let's hope so because these two folks are a hoot!
