    LOOOOOVED this prequel. So glad I decided to go back and read it before continuing to book two. Can't recommend it enough if you are starting this series, or even if you've read most of the series already. This story is how Fox and O'Hare meet, and I seriously grinned through the entire thing. Good stuff. LOOOOOVED this prequel. So glad I decided to go back and read it before continuing to book two.

    This a novella that introduced Fox and O'Hare. I wish I read this before "The Heist" as it gives GREAT background info these two. This a novella that introduced Fox and O'Hare. I wish I read this before "The Heist" as it gives GREAT background info these two.

    First Read: When I first read this, I didn't realize it was a novella, so was most surprised when it ended something like 29-35 pages later. The story didn't have enough book and story for my liking, had good potential, but this wasn't quite it. If they tried it again, put some more meat on it, I think it could be really good. Second Read: Great short story to start off the series about how Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare meet. Nick is a sexy con and Kate is a new, tough FBI agent.

When I decided to read The Heist by Evanovich and Goldberg, I didn't realize that Nick Fox and Kate O'Hare's first adventure was preceded by a few prequel e-book only novellas. The Shell Game is a pleasing and fun, entertaining, fast-paced introduction to the adversarial relationship at the center of this series, between a suave, elegant, likable trickster and a by-the-book FBI agent determined to take him down. The plot is thin, but as a fan of caper stories and films I'm not really here for an intricately plotted mystery; rather, I want breezy banter and outlandish adventure -- and on that score, Evanovich and Goldberg deliver. This is a thoroughly entertaining read that does a fantastic job of introducing Nick and Kate and the professional rivalry that makes them the unlikeliest of crime-solvers. The perfect lunch break-length read, The Shell Game is a diverting introduction to Fox and O'Hare's entertaining shenanigans, a world of thanks to its novelty (at least to date) I'll happily revisit. A fun read, and looking forward to others. Recommend.

    This was a super quick read because it is a short story that covers Kate and Nick's first meeting and the beginning of Kate's career. Even though it was written after this series started, it is a nice explanation of things to come. I've enjoyed the feel of these books. I like the characters, the action, the tension.....they are fun reads. So 4 stars.

    This was a good short story about how Fox and O'Hara came together. It fits perfectly with the series. A good little read while waiting for the next book in this series to be published.

    This is a very short story book, maybe calling it a book in itself is a misnomer, as it's not really a book... It's more like a preamble, like a quick glance of what is to come, more like a quick intro, allowing us to meet the characters, that I assume will develop and grow in the books to come... It's like a teaser or a preview of a movie, but in this case, applying to a book format, inviting us to stand by, or follow up and get the real book that is to come soon after... A good idea in all, I'd This is a very short story book, maybe calling it a book in itself is a misnomer, as it's not really a book...

A good idea in all, I'd say considering a well-known author once said is not so well received by readers, by an audience, to have a preamble, of what is soon to come in the very same book, like a preface or something, so I guess coming up with a short story as a teaser, in itself a separate "book" if we can call it that, I guess is after all a good idea...

    A short story that I should have come upon long ago! This book explains how Kate and Nick first met and takes us back to Kate's first days in the FBI. I enjoyed spending a quick part of my day with these two, "seeing" them as they were before they became partners and partners! A short story that I should have come upon long ago!

    I love this series and these two so it was fun going back to see their very first meet and how the cat and mouse game all began. I'm glad I read this after the full lengths. I think it made me appreciate it more. I definitely smiled over the two as Kate tried to stop a heist Nick planned.

Kate is the newest acquisition of the FBI office in LA, after years spent in the NAVY she’s ready to take advantage of the chance to be near her family, her first case revolves around the protection of some art pieces and while the partnership with the hot piece of ass from the security agency is making her struggle, she’s ready to prove how good of an agent she is. Problem is, Nick Fox (who at this point is barely a blip on the FBI’s radar) has laid eyes on the art pieces and has devised one of his famous devious cons in order to steal the pieces. A legendary rivalry is born on this day...one that will last for years before our two protagonists are thrown together into the adventures of the “main” series.

    I really like this series and will read every tiny story they produce, especially if they continue to be this good. Basically this is a short story, showing the original crime where FBI Detective Kate and con man Nic Fox first meet. Very creative robbery (seriously how do they think these up?) and a well-written story.

    Loved this story! How Nick and Kate first meet. Robberies, car chases, cons, and oreos. What more does a story need?

    4 ⭐ This book introduces ex SEAL now FBI agent Kate O'Hare and international thief and con man Nicholas Fox. The novella was short and fun. It laid the groundwork for the rivalry between the thief and FBI agent. Both characters interesting. Loved the banter between Nick and Kate. 4 ⭐ This book introduces ex SEAL now FBI agent Kate O'Hare and international thief and con man Nicholas Fox. The novella was short and fun.

    Nick Fox is after golden Peruvian relics. After being hired as security for the relocation of the relics, Fox hadn't planned on being paired up with FBI agent Kate O'Hare. She was as dedicated to keeping the law as he was to breaking it. Makes a story of high conflict. This a taste of the series makes me ready to dig in. Nick Fox is after golden Peruvian relics.

    Initial Impressions 12/29/17: This was so much fun! I loved seeing how Kate and Nick first met and how their outstanding affair got started. It was great to see the background and I just love the tone of these books. Happy to be able to read even more pieces of this story.

    This was a prequel and it is a good intro to this Kate O’Hare and Nick Fox series. Nick, as the con man/thief, gives Kate just a taste of what is going to be involved as she tries to capture Nick in future escapades. lol
