The Heist by Evanovich and Goldberg

The Heist
(O’Hare and Fox #1)
by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg




First Chapter/First Paragraph/Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea. To play along, share the first paragraph (or a few) from a book you’re reading or thinking about reading soon.

Kate O’Hare’s favorite outfit was her blue windbreaker with the letters FBI written in yellow on the back, worn over a basic black T-shirt and matching Kevlar vest. The ensemble went well with everything, particularly when paired with jeans and accessorized with a Glock. Thirty-three-year-old Special Agent O’Hare didn’t like feeling exposed and unarmed, especially on the job. That all but ruled her out for undercover work. Fine by her. She preferred a hard-charging style of law enforcement, which was exactly what she was practicing on that 96 degree winter afternoon in Las Vegas when she marched into the St. Cosmas Medical Center in her favorite outfit with a dozen similarly dressed agents behind her.

There were half a dozen identical Las Vegas Aerial Tours choppers in the airspace above the Strip, and even though only one of them had a man hanging from a landing skid, by the time she got the word out Nick’s helicopter had disappeared. It didn’t help that in all the excitement, she’d failed to notice the chopper’s tail number and had nothing to give to the air traffic controllers so they could track its transponder.


At about a quarter through the book, I am enjoying the first in this series. There’s plenty of Evanovich’s trademark humour and the collaboration seems to be working well. Goldberg has worked on numerous television programs and written series based on Mr. Monk and Diagnosis Murder. This is the first I recall reading by him. Have you read any of his work?

  1. I am glad to hear this has Evanovich’s trademark humor. It’s been ages since I last read something by her, but I could always count on her for a good laugh. 🙂 I haven’t read anything by Goldberg, although I am familiar with the television shows you mention. I like the teaser and opening you shared. This sounds like it will be a fun one.

    I’m glad that she’s created another series. And she is funny. Hope Kate doesn’t have to choose between two guys. That’s kind of gotten old with me. LOL

      I know what you mean, Kay. I’m also getting a bit exasperated with Stephanie. Although the guys are so different, I can almost understand her dilemma.

    Sounds like it has it’s fair share of action sequences. I’ve enjoyed her humor in the past. My teaser is from a collection of science fiction stories. My Teaser
