I’m a big fan of Janet Evanovich’s ‘numbers’ or Plum series (even with the constant indecision between Ranger and Morrelli), so when I heard there was a new series starting I was excited, as well as kind of annoyed that the Metro Girl series has been left at 2 novels and then switched to graphic novels (anyone else with me?). Sorry I digressed…
The Heist is a new series written by Evanovich with Lee Goldberg features FBI special Agent Kate O’Hare and criminal, possibly even ‘criminal mastermind’, Nicholas Fox (fox by name and sly by nature). Kate has been chasing Fox for years, finally puts him behind bars only to have him escape and then find him somehow her new partner in the fight against crime.
To put it in movie terms it’s kind of like Oceans 11 combined with Miss Congeniality – it’s got good characters, is really easy on the eye – sorry was thinking of Oceans then – it’s really easy to read, and it’s enjoyable. It’s not a book that is going to change the world, or even you as a person, but it will let you escape for a couple of hours, have a good time and not leave you feeling like you wasted the time investment.
I’d happily be Special Agent Kate O’Hare if there were to be a movie made and Bradley Cooper would make a great Nick Fox – but seeing as I can’t act that won’t be happening, so I’ll just wait for book 2 in the series to come out.
What about you – have you read it? What did you think? I’d love to know so leave your thoughts in the comments below!
