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.

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.
His earlier books were better
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.
the female narrator is not convincing and her other voices are not working. That was the reason for the 1 rating.
I would say The Hit ranks pretty high up there in all the audio books I've listened to so far,
Yes, this book had many twists in it and it really kept my attention. I really like the Will Robie character.
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.
Pretty much so, yes, but i didn't do that. :)
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.
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!
Tell us about yourself!
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
I didn't read the print version....
Will Robie. I find myself wanting to get to know him more....
Too many to pick just one
When Jessica realized she could trust him
Please write another in the series quickly, I can't wait for another one!
interesting story, makes you really wonder about the inner working of the government and how little we regular guys are ever told
FAST, RIVOTING, QUICK
YES, MIND TEASER
IN SYNC WITH SCRIPT/BOOK
GREAT FIRST SPY BOOK TO SELECT GREAT FIRST DAVID BOOK TO SELECT
Unpredictable except to know that Baldacci is always going to be unpredictable as to where he's going.
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.
There were so many scenes to choose from that were action packed and thought provoking in this entire story.
The narration was excellent and the sound effects where exciting.
None so far but I will keep listening. lol
They were both excellent, great narration.
No, but this book was exciting from the beginning, very suspenseful.
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
