Goodreads Review: 

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.

My Thoughts: 

M not a huge fan of Janet but i still like her books cuz they r fun and smart reads. In collaboration with Lee, they both created a magic. They make u laugh at a very serious situations, their humorous characters, witty writing kept me enjoying The Heist.

Frankly speaking, there are some twist and turns in the story and that's good actually. Gives your brains some work to do. While we keep guessing, Janet has another story to tell. When i read her book, i can sense her writing, and if I feel that its going otta track than it has to be a co-writer involved in it. Usually i dont like any author teamed up with a co-writer, but I must admit that these two have created a fire in their work. Can't wait for another book in the series.

Over all its a fun read, will make u laugh, will make u think n will leave u with no other choice than to give a good review and 4 stars.


Happy Reading !!

  3. I am of the opinion that practice makes perfect. Intensive and extensive reading can enhance one’s ability to write if you so desire. Negotiating the waters of writing is all about passion. My experience at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka will attest to this fact. Visit http://www.unn.edu.ng for details
