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.

    Story
    "Jessica makes a great addition to the series"

    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.

    "Great series!"

    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.

    "Please lose the sound effects"

    I love the Will Robie books, but am inclined not to purchase anymore because of the lame sound effects and music. I listen to audio books because I have a long commute. If I wanted music and sound effects then I wouldn't buy audio BOOKS. The whole point is being able to use one's imagination. Please stop. I don't want to stop buying Baldacci's audio books but is he continues to cheese them up then I'll be forced to.

    Thrilling Read, but the ending did not surprise. Would love to have more "scenes" of Robie talking missions

    Story
    "BLAAAAHHHH"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was so predictable and bland - nothing here.


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    Selling books based on brand and not content is the real crime


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ?

    Narration was fine


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

    Disappointment - You knew from the beginning how this book was going to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a spoiler but here is the book in a nutshell - Crime committed / Crime solved. That review was deeper than this book.

    Story
    "Not what I was expecting."

    A potentially exciting political thriller that was too political with very few thrills. I understand authors have the right to inject their political views. I will just respectfully disagree and move on to another author.
