FRONTLIST FEATURES: THE HEIST by Lee Goldman and Janet Evanovich

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock all summer, you’ve probably heard about Top Suspenser Lee Goldberg’s collaboration with superstar author Janet Evanovich. Together they created a new crime series featuring a female FBI agent and a male crook, and it’s been sitting on top of the charts ever since it came out June 18.

But, in the unlikely event you haven’t heard about it:.

FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox—an international crook she wants in more ways than one.               Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail—particularly Kate O’Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there’s no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman . . . even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas 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 Special Agent Kate O’Hare. Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who’s hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O’Hare’s patience and Fox’s skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate’s dad. 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.

Lee and Janet teamed up because as Lee says, “we are old friends and we set out to write the kind of book we love to read... pure escapist adventure, exotic locales, punchy banter, and lots of sexual tension. We hope the fun we had writing it comes across on the page!”

It obviously has. Praise has poured in, including this:

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
