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.

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.
Will Robie series is one of the best of David Baldacci's. His characters come to life on the page. Couldn't put this one down I'd rather lose sleep than wait to see what Robie will do. The action around Robie keeps you turning page after page. Definitely 5 Stars.
Another great book by David
The narration is fantastic, brings it to life.
Could not stop listening
They say this is a work of fiction but it could be true
This was a good story, but it felt like the author was trying just a little too hard. Had he backed off the action sequences a little, the story might have felt a little more believable. But the author tells a good story, I liked the main character, and would probably listen to another book in this series. The reader was pretty good too.
