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.

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.
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.
Tell us about yourself!
This was so predictable and bland - nothing here.
Selling books based on brand and not content is the real crime
Narration was fine
Disappointment - You knew from the beginning how this book was going to end.
This is not a spoiler but here is the book in a nutshell - Crime committed / Crime solved. That review was deeper than this book.
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.
This was a great story (thank you, D. Baldacci - this story is by far one of my new favorites) and the readers did a fantastic job!
My only criticism (and it's a small one) would be: the female reader (Orlagh Cassidy) needs to vary her voice a little more for different characters (all the female characters sounded the same - had the same overly forced southern-draw).
Overall, I highly recommend this audiobook. This book was so good, I bought two more Baldacci books with the same readers.
Loved it because it kept me interested. It was the second time hearing and reading this book. I reommend it to everyone. Ron and Orlagh are great together as narrators. You will enjoy the book, narration and story.
