Pros and Cons is the prequel to The Heist. It introduces us to con-man Nick Fox and FBI special agent Kate O’Hare. Fox is a fast talking, good looking, smart and savvy con-man who takes joy in teasing tough, focused FBI special agent Kate O’Hare. In Pros and Cons Nick gets away but in The Heist Kate finally catches him. 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.
Janet Evanovich does humor and snappy dialogue like nobody else. Lee Goldberg writes quirky intrigue really well. Combine the two and you have the beginnings of a really great series.
