Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Thriller/Suspense, 2014

From David Baldacci - number-one best-selling author and one of the world's most popular, widely read storytellers - comes the most thrilling novel of the year.

Will Robie is a master of killing.

A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.

No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

To stop one of their own, the government looks again to Will Robie. His mission: bring in Reel, dead or alive. Only a killer can catch another killer, they tell him.

But as Robie pursues Reel, he quickly finds that there is more to her betrayal than meets the eye. Her attacks on the agency conceal a larger threat, a threat that could send shockwaves through the U.S. government and around the world.

    "Pretty Good"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Very entertaining, tends to get very detailed, some times too much detail and the book seems to go slowly at those parts. Great for people who love conspiracies and hit men.


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Baldacci? Why or why not?

    Yes

    Story
    "Stopped at 5 hours. Poor character dialogue"
    Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ?

    His earlier books were better


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    the clipped non answer conversations between the agents and gov't officials is grating and irritating after awhile. I hope that does not happen in real life. The plot has some merit but the dialogue was silly.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performances?

    the female narrator is not convincing and her other voices are not working. That was the reason for the 1 rating.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disinterest.

    "Good read!"
    Where does The Hit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say The Hit ranks pretty high up there in all the audio books I've listened to so far,


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, this book had many twists in it and it really kept my attention. I really like the Will Robie character.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have only listened to them in this series but I really like that there is a woman for the women's voices. Some narrators try and talk like women and it just sounds too unnatural.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty much so, yes, but i didn't do that. :)


    Any additional comments?

    Hoping another Will Robie story comes out soon! This story really had me pulled into it and now I feel like I'm missing something.

    "A really good listen, good performances"

    I've never read or listened to any of David Baldacci's books so wasn't sure what to expect. It was a very engaging story line and quite an enjoyable listen. Both performers on the book (one male, one female) were great to listen to and did a good job as well. I'm glad I purchased this one--will definitely listen to again!

    "Great Listen"
    What made the experience of listening to The Hit the most enjoyable?

    After listening to the last book by another auther, which was worse than bad, this was a great listen. One of his better books. Don't understand the few bad reviews. This is one to listen or read. Great story

    "Twists and turns"
    What did you love best about The Hit?

    Unpredictable except to know that Baldacci is always going to be unpredictable as to where he's going.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed getting to know Agent Will Robie. He showed not only his stone cold ability to be superhuman in sparring, but he also gave us an emotional image within his mind and heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many scenes to choose from that were action packed and thought provoking in this entire story.
