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.

    "STOP with the stupid sound effects, already!"

    The narration on this audiobook is ok, not great, but what I am having trouble with are the sound effects - sirens, broken glass, bombs, gunfire....it is annoying and detracts from the story. The story moves very slowly....I had to start and stop multiple times, which is very unusual for me. That may be due to the sound effects - I listened to a point, and found myself so irritated I put it away for a couple of days. Definitely not a good value on this one.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    Story
    "As good a Thriller as the first!"
    Where does The Hit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was pleasantly surprised with the first book, enjoyed listening to it, and the characters. I hoped it continues thru D. Baldacci's writing. Jessica is a good add in to the franchise.. and look forward to reading or listening to the third.


    If you’ve listened to books by David Baldacci before, how does this one compare?

    It was good, although I was disappointed that there wasn't enough of Julie (his teenage friend) nor SuperAgent Nikki Vance written into the book. They were introduced in the first book, but sadly, there wasn't enough mention of them or details given to them.. I would have like to read more help from Vance, as well, as input from Julie. The authors direction of Will Robie is he is conflicted to not become emotionally intertwined or care for people, yet he clearly is with Vance, and Julie.


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    I became familiar to the characters from the first, and they become them. They add some depth to the chapters, and keep me wanting to find out what happens next.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    All the bad-ass of a squad, in one man and one woman!

    "Gripping and Satisfying"

    Well done story with good plot and great characters. Narration using male and female readers is well executed and adds to listening experience. Listened while on a long car trip and helped make the time go by.

    "Tired of these readers!"

    Just getting bored with Ron and Orla. They read so blandly and it's just getting a bit old.
