The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg, 295 page
I liked this book. It was a quick, easy, funny read, in typical Evanovich style. Now, I do think that Janet and/or Lee have been watching a little too much of the USA network. This books is about a con man, Nick, who is captured by a FBI agent, Kate, and the two of them are thrown together to go on a secret mission for the FBI to catch another con man. Sounds like Neal Caffery and an episode of "White Collar" to me. Nick is very worldly and charming. He manages to pull off this "heist" and come out smelling like a rose. Our reluctant heroine, Kate, former Navy seal and hardcore FBI agent is more comfortable with a glock than jewelry as an accessory. She is forced into playing a spoiled heiress in order to pull off this con. Nick and Kate get themselves into some interesting predicaments, but all ends well thanks to Kate's retired military father who comes to the rescue. All in all, a fun read, not totally without merit as I did learn what a Toberlone bar is!
