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.

    "Nothing Outstanding About This"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I almost didn't write a review as I couldn't think of anything outstanding about this book. And then decided that is a review. I plodded through it....was an okay listen but nothing grabbed at me and made me listen. This is why I love mysteries...the grab.

    "Kept letting me down...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    no,see below


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    The story just became more and more ridiculous.The last few chapters were silly.Private jet travel going from continent to continent willy nilly ...well I didn't buy it.
    It's fiction I know but give me something possible to grab onto.


    What three words best describe Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s voice?

    McLarty was strong and believable. Cassidy's was weak.


    Did The Hit inspire you to do anything?

    Yes,choose books more carefully.


    Any additional comments?

    no

    "You have to get this book!"
    If you could sum up The Hit in three words, what would they be?

    Thriller, Suspenseful, Shocking


    What did you like best about this story?

    The amazing and shocking side of N. Korea.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    A tie between Will Robie and John Puller for Ron and Orlagh is great as all the female characters but I love Jessica Riel!


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

    Yes, but I save my audio books for my work commute.


    Any additional comments?

    I want more Robie and Reil!

    Story
    "Will Robie a no nonsense kind of hero"

    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.
