The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

The Heist by Evanovich and Goldberg proves that these two writers are an excellent duo that can produce a well-thought out and fun read. Goldberg is the author of the novelization of the Monk mystery series, while Evanvoich is the author of the well-known Stephanie Plum series. Kate O’Hare is an FBI agent hunting down Nick Fox, a high-profile con man. O’Hare catches her man, but Fox convinces the head of the FBI that he will bring in bigger con men in exchange for his freedom. Kate becomes Nick’s handler and they set out to capture Griffin, an investment banker who swindled investors out of $500 million dollars.  Kate and Nick and their crew travel all over the world and perform several elaborate cons to get their man.

Overall, this was a highly entertaining read. Evanvoich’s sense of humor is evident, but Goldberg’s attention to detail really fleshes out the story and keeps you turning the pages.
