Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Thriller/Suspense, 2013

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.

    "Good story line"

    It was a good story line I did have a difficult time keeping track of all the characters I would have to go back and re listen to parts of it.

    Story
    "Lacks excitement; bad writing. Simply boring."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I imagine this would be a good time-waster for a road trip or the perfect droning voice to fall asleep to on a plane; missing large chunks doesn't matter as the story never comes together anyway.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    This is my first Baldacci book and unfortunately I won't be reading any more. Perhaps something by Clancy, Silva, or Hunter.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narration wasn't bad and I actually enjoy occasional sound effects and multiple narrators. There was zero emotion, though, but I guess that's hard to portray with writing as terrible as this.


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

    I don't read (or listen to) this genre very often but I found this to be incredibly boring for a genre that is full of excitement and intrigue. I'm afraid I was swayed by the many positive reviews. This books feels and reads as if it could be a 5th grader's book report.


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely no character development, predictable, no surprises, bland dialogue, and the word choices were overly simplistic; not in a beautifully simple way but rather as if it was written by a child learning to portray emotion through writing for the first time.

    Only finished because it was so short and I'm a completist. No payoff at the end, either.

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

    The special effect. I wish there were more. Made me felt like I was watching a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an awesome book. It kept me hook from the start. I was actually hook from the first book, The Innocent. My only complaint is the reader. He did a good job, but needs to alter his voice a little more for the different characters. Sometime it's hard to figure out which character he was supposed to be. Overall, two thumbs up.
