Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Evanovich has top billing here, but she gets some solid support from screenwriter and crime novelist Goldberg, whose own take on comedy and crime, evident in the wacky TV crime series Monk and books like My Gun Has Bullets (1995), matches Evanovich’s over-the-top style to a tee. Their first book in the new Fox and O’Hare series is a near-seamless demonstration of their talents. Readers will have no trouble recognizing hallmarks of Evanovich’s hugely popular Stephanie Plum books: a tough-talking gal heroine with a soft side; a sexy male costar; a wacky bunch of supporting characters; and plenty of flirty banter. The setup is ludicrous fun that demands total suspension of disbelief (no surprise there). Straitlaced FBI agent Kate O’Hare has devoted most of her career to catching internationally known confidence man, tricky Nick Fox. When she actually does it, she’s horrified to realize she doesn’t know what to do next. She doesn’t have long to think about it though, as Nick escapes, and when she finds him, he’s working for the FBI! His job: catch another con man who has made off with millions. After all, who better to catch a crook than another crook? Kate’s not quite sure, but she’s game to work alongside Nick, whose charms she finds difficult to deny. Together with help from new friends, the pair mounts an elaborate con that takes them from the American desert to an Indonesian island. With lots of face punching, international travel, and a few set-tos with modern-day pirates, it’s all good nonsense, which promises more of the same in future episodes. --Stephanie Zvirin

Review

The Heist is the perfect title to carry on a trip to the beach. The laugh out loud humor that readers expect from Evanovich is in full force, and Goldberg’s crafty and elaborate writing is prominent. . . . Everyone will be eager for the next book in the series.”—Associated Press
 
“The action is fast-paced and the writing is first-rate, making The Heist an excellent choice for vacation reading.”—Huntington News

Love the characters.
Karinsue
I liked both main characters and enjoyed Kate's father but the parachuting out of the plane bit was just a bit too much for me.

Laugh out loud funny, great sexual tension, and a plot that kept me turning page after page until I finished.

Why are there so few really funny female detectives? Janet Evanovich seems almost the only one who can master that, be it Stephanie Plum or now Kate O`Hare. One of the view exceptions I have found is Lisa Becker in Heads Off (A Lisa Becker Mystery).

The plot has already been described, I don't want to spoil anything for you. Anyway: We have a new dream team here with a female FBI agent and a former con man, both very attractive. Hmmm, I wonder where this is leading?

I don't know how much of Lee Goldberg is in the novel, but there is clearly an improvement to the last few Plum novels. The writing is light-hearted and charming, albeit without awfully many bright ideas, just what you like to read when the sun is shining. I would really like to see more of this.

I am very surprised at the high stars this book is getting. I am a big fan of the Stephanie books, although the last couple have been a struggle. I thought I would give this a shot because I like Janet Evanovich so much. I barely made it through 50 pages before I had to give up on it. It is a rip off of the show "White Collar" and it's just so incredibly unbelievable that I just couldn't over look it. I really wanted to like it, was excited that maybe it would be a fun new series. I liked both main characters and enjoyed Kate's father but the parachuting out of the plane bit was just a bit too much for me. I'm all for suspending reality for a bit but I couldn't do it for an entire book. Really disappointed.

I cannot think of anything positive to say about this latest Evanovich book. JE appears to be just cranking out books. When I read the Plum books I laugh out loud, but sadly I do remember even a smile while reading the Heist.
The female FBI agent Kate O'Hare was a US Navy seal, sorry folks the only female Seal was in the MOVIE G.I. Jane But as per the news reports
The US Could Have Its First Female Navy SEALs By 2016.
She could have been a SWAT member or trained by her Da. I do allow for artistic license.
And what happen to the recovered heist???????????? Who received the bounty? It appears that the true victims were left out. Questions about the ending one more chapter would have been nice.
I have read all of the 19 Stephanie Plum Books and receive Evanovich's news letter.
I have only written two reviews, but this book was a waste of my money. I will read book 2 in this series, but will check it out of the public library.

I am sorry, but I must be reading a different book from the people giving this book a good review. This book is just awful. For the first 10 seconds I thought it might be a good book with a strong female character. Sadly, I was wrong. Kate, who is supposed to be a former Navy Seal and now an FBI agent, acts more like a love struck teenager around Nick (the con-man) instead of a strong female character with a good head on her shoulders. She has no professionalism around him and acts as if she has never been around around an attractive male in her entire life. Nick, is too arrogant to be anything but annoying and I really just wanted him to go to jail and stay there. Both characters have cookie cutter personalities and hardly any character development throughout this book. This extends to the rest of the people in the book who were also boring and very one dimensional.
Frankly, this will be the only book in this series I am going to read. Unless the characters in this book have some life altering personality shift, I cannot see any reason for me to continue with this series.

Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg wrote The Heist - well, actually, the style is more Lee Goldberg. I got 30% of the way through it and gave up. Really feel like I should ask for my money back. Very disappointing. The plot was so unplausible that it was ridiculous.

I've read pretty much all of Lee Goldberg's books and Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels. They both pretty much write from a formula, but as they join together for this book, it's like they're using someone else's formula and doing it as badly as English translations of Chinese product instructions. As I read the book I kept getting the nagging feeling that I'd read this story already --or had seen it on television ages ago. There was nothing fresh and new about it; after a third of the book I kept asking myself why I was continuing to read it. Terrible dialog, predictable events, --it's as though the authors were writing a parody that violated every single rule for generating a good and compelling read. I kept reading because I felt that there must be some redeeming quality and I'd just not gotten to it yet. Apparently not, the book was awful from cover to cover. I note that some people are giving this book rave reviews; I simply don't understand how that can be. I took 20 showers while tearfully shouting "UNCLEAN" and still felt sullied by the odious quality of this book.

I am a huge fan of Janet Evanovich and I am not sure why so many are raving about this book. Frankly, the characters were, for the most part, flat and not well developed. There were males who were part of Kate's team who all sort of blended in together and who became just names to me. In earlier novels, the author does stretch the truth, but, for the most part, the experiences and actions are believable. In this book, there is very little credibility and the experiences of Kate and her team are just too impossible to believe, and this may be due to the story line or how the plot unfolds. One character I did like was Kate's father, who played only a minor role. I wish he could have played a bigger role in the novel. In fact, I agree with one reviewer who stated he could easily be in a series of his own or could better be Kate's partner. Frankly, I think he would be better than Nick was in this book. In later books, he may become like Lulu is to Stephanie Plum, but he just didn't do that here. I see their lack of chemistry and mutual attraction/teasing between Kate and Nick as a serious shortfall in the book. Finally, I wonder whether the author, who has provided her readers so much in the past, has finally reached her apex and is possibly now going beyond her limits.
