Pros and Cons: A Short Story by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg (audio)

Overview from Barnes and Noble:


Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg have teamed up for a dynamic new series featuring an FBI agent who’s on the hunt—and a master con artist who’s enjoying the chase. The con is on in this eBook original short story that’s a triumphant prequel to The Heist.

FBI special agent Kate O’Hare has made it her mission to nail international con artist Nicolas Fox. When she discovers his plot to plunder a venture capitalist’s twentieth-story Chicago penthouse of all its cash and treasures while the self-proclaimed “King of Hostile Takeovers” is getting married, Kate is 85 percent—okay maybe 92 percent—sure that she’s finally going to bag Nick Fox.

Problem is, first Kate has to convince her boss, building security, and maybe even herself, that wedding planner Merrill Stubing is actually Nicolas Fox. Second, she has to figure out how to corner and capture him without disrupting the event of the year. And third, what’s going to happen once O’Hare finally gets her hands on Fox? It’s going take a pro to catch a con before the fireworks over Lake Michigan go off.

Includes a sneak peek of The Heist, the first novel in the highly anticipated new series from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg!
My thoughts:
This was a fun, short book to listen to and to garner excitement about the recently released of the book The Heist.  The audio version did not have the sneak peak of the next book.  Kate and Nick are introduced and shown in their elements, as an FBI agent tracking down a criminal who used alias from TV characters of past shows to a con artist who sets up elaborate heists by pretending to be someone else entirely and planning it all out to the last detail.
The book was fast paced, funny and had enough suspense and chemistry to make you wonder what will happen when these two meet?  Will Kate be able to arrest Nick?  Does he want to get caught?  How long can he hide from the law?  And why do the higher ups keep doubting Kate's instincts?  I'm going to have to look into getting a copy of the new book to see how it all plays out!
