Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author David Baldacci returns with his most breathtaking thriller yet....

Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of the most lethal people alive. They're the ones the government calls in when the utmost secrecy is required to take out those who plot violence and mass destruction against the United States. And through every mission, one man has always had their backs: their handler, code-named Blue Man.

But now, Blue Man is missing.

Last seen in rural Colorado, Blue Man had taken a rare vacation to go fly fishing in his hometown when he disappeared off the grid. With no communications since, the team can't help but fear the worst.

Sent to investigate, Robie and Reel arrive in the small town of Grand to discover that it has its own share of problems. A stagnant local economy and a woefully understaffed police force have made this small community a magnet for crime, drugs, and a growing number of militant fringe groups.

But lying in wait in Grand is an even more insidious and sweeping threat, one that may shake the very foundations of America. And when Robie and Reel find themselves up against an adversary with superior firepower and a home-court advantage, they'll be lucky if they make it out alive, with or without Blue Man....

I am so tired of respected authors phoning it in.

I would be surprised if Baldacci even read this book much less wrote it. I like the series and the narrators so I had to get it, but come on, this is an insult to your fans. The situations and dialog are ill conceived and amateurish at best. A real disappointment.

For Baldacci, a very poor effort

Implausible, bad dialogue, and I️ struggled to finish. The plot and behavior of the two main characters was almost laughable.

Might need to be groupie type fan

To stick with this one.

I'm not even half way thru so maybe not 100% fair to review before finishing.... but as someone who has been an obsessive --when does the new one hit the book shelves-- groupie type fan and a rabid fan of Will and The Camel Club...used to being wowed with in the first few chapters......I am underwhelmed.

I was counting down days to getting the notice my pre-order was ready for down load and cleared my plans for a day of nothing but listening.

So far....I am having to shut it off and walk away for a bit. It is going to take me a while to get thru it.

Some have mentioned the body count......yep...it is high.....but meeehh...it is the genre.....that's what comes with this sort of plot line.

My issue with the theme:
It's trite, tired and old hat rehash.

So much so..... I just can't stay with it.

Maybe it will get better the farther I get into the story line but right now...UGH!

If this is gonna be your first Robie/Reel listen.....skip it.....cuz it might turn you off what is a great series from a great author.

Narration is 100% spot on, these two always make the words and dialogue work no matter how off and trite.......the author has it.

Not up to what I have come to expect from Will Robi, Jessica Reel, or David Baldacci

Entertaining But Predictable

Brewer and Cassidy give a great performance of this latest Baldacci shoot 'em up. The storyline fell a little flat for me.

In the beginning of the novel, there are two operation involving the main characters that are quite compelling and whet the appetite for the listener for the rest of the novel.

The the rest of the novel, however is a low-stakes game of cat and mouse that (for me) leaves the listener wanting more true action, more drama, and a grander scale that we are used to with Robie and Riel.

I did listened to the entire novel faithfully and was entertained - just not as much as I was expecting.

Big letdown, what happened?

Wow, this was a great series before this last book. I waited a long time and was excited to catch up with Will and company. This book was odd with an overall forced and rushed narrative all the way through. From the plot, to the style, it seemed like Baldacci was letting his teenage nephew write it for a mid term project to appease the series fans.

End game

Not what I expected. The first one of your books i did not find good. To slow in the beginning and I expected something better for the cost, and the reader sucked. Write a story about a bad President and the future of our country.

Political hack job

What disappointed you about End Game?

Baldacci spends so much time trying to squeeze in political commentary, the plot and flow suffer so much I moved on to my next book.

What could David Baldacci have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Focus on plot, not trying to make as many political statements

What three words best describe Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance?

excellent as always

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from End Game?

would not cut scenes, just smooth the plot

Any additional comments?

Get back to what you do best, leave the politics for your cocktail hour

Hurried

Not as good as the others, seemed shallow, little if any character development, and everything a bit over the top.
