Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have teamed up for a dynamic new series featuring an FBI agent who’s on the hunt—and a master con artist who’s enjoying the chase. The con is on in this eBook original short story that’s a triumphant prequel to The Heist.
FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s twentieth-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures at the same time that the self-proclaimed “King of Hostile Takeovers” is getting married, Kate is 85 percent—okay maybe 92 percent—sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox.
Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox? It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake Michigan go off.
Includes a sneak peek of The Heist, the first novel in the highly anticipated new series from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg!
My take on this book: CAUTION! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK ALREADY!!!!!!!
I have always loved Janet Evanovich’s work. I mean I have read all of the Stephanie Plum novels and the novella’s Between the Numbers with Stephanie and Diesel and her other series with Diesel and Lizzy. So it would be no different for me to read this one.
And I actually have to hand it to Janet and Lee this book is definitely different. I mean sure if anyone has seen White Collar you would think oh great same thing but instead of Agent Burke we have Agent O’Hare who also happens to be a female. But it’s not the same thing as White Collar at all. Which might be what drew me toward this series. That and my mom bought it on Kindle and I just couldn’t help myself.
Anyways this series I can tell will be a good one. And I know that it is bad to read the Heist before the prequel like I did but reading the Heist and then the prequel doesn’t take away from what happened in the Heist. The prequel mostly just adds a back story that you have seen glimpses of from the first book into the series. This book is a great one and one I couldn’t stop reading but that could also be from the very small book which is what most novellas like this one are. So I give it a five star rating. Please comment on this review and I hoped you liked it!
