The HeisteBook - 2013
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Janet Evanovich, #1 bestselling author of the Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, bestselling author and television writer for Monk, comes the first adventure in an electrifying series featuring an FBI agent who always gets her man, and a fearless con artist who lives for the chase.
Nicolas Fox is an international con man, famous for running elaborate scams on very rich and powerful people. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail for years—particularly FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare. But just when it seems that Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: He convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with O’Hare.
Their first assignment takes them to the side streets of Berlin, the California desert, and remote Indonesian islands as they team up to catch Derek Griffin, a corrupt investment banker charged with stealing millions from his clients. Finding Griffin on his private island is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day’s work . . . if O’Hare and Fox don’t kill each other first.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg's The Chase.

This initially felt like a complete rip-off of White Collar (which I love). But now that White Collar's been canceled and I'm sad, I just pretend that the characters from White Collar are the characters in this series. --Elizabeth @ the Collection Development Office

"He was a chubby, bottom-heavy guy who looked like a turnip that some bored wizard had tapped with a magic wand and turned into a fifty-five-year-old bureaucrat."
"You'd do that for me?" "You're my daughter, aren't you?" Kate smiled. Sure, he'd missed a lot of Chistmases and birthdays during her childhood, but not many fathers could be counted on to mount a prison break.

SummaryAdd a Summary
FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare follows in the footsteps of her dad putting her military background to use for the good of her country. For the last five years she had doggedly pursued Nick Fox, a sexy international crook and con man who takes delight in her fierce attention and leaves Toblerones on her pillow.
His capture and her celebration are short-lived when Nick escapes custody and Kate is pulled from the case. Kate is furious. She locates Nick on the Greek island of Athos, which has forbidden any female presence for the past thousand years. With the aid of her father Kate takes a 'vacation', masquerades as a male, and parachutes under the cover of night to seek her target.
She finds Nick hiding in a centuries old stone and earthen hut built in the mouth of a cave in the company of two men; Agent in Charge Carl Jessup, her boss and Fletcher Bolton, deputy director of the FBI. In the clandestine meeting, Nick has agreed to work off the grid for the FBI. His job is to con one of the bigger cons and return over five hundred million dollars to the US. Her job is to make sure he does.
