After reading The Innocent, I felt The Hit would be a great read and I was not disappointed. I know I am late getting the Baldacci express but I think I have found an author that keeps the pace fast and the action interesting. At least he did in this installment. I will be following Will Robie & company's adventures in the future.
Interesting and exciting story. I love the reader and the sound effects are not distracting. Great and fantastic read. I love the humanity of the hero and the heroine.

Jessica Reel is the female counterpart to Will Robie. She is every bit as good as he is and at times it is hard to tell where she ends and he begins. Unfortunately, she finds herself on the wrong side of the law and Will is dispatched to eliminate her threat. At times, it is hard to tell exactly what he will do - kill her or join her, but it seems apparent the entire time that there's more to the story of her being rogue than meets the eye. As usual, a governmental conspiracy is at the heart of the controversy and at times, it seems, there is no way out for either Jessica or Will. How they move from bad guys to welcome members of the fold is artfully handled by the author. You find yourself pushing for them to get together and overcome the government conspirators. I highly recommend to anyone who likes Baldacci or just any good spy novel.
I liked this a lot. I'm not sure if I like Robie better than Puller. Both Baldacci characters are strong. I think Reel is great!
I've already started the next in this series.
I enjoy the narration of the audiobooks but I really don't like the sound effects.
