It's been awhile since I read the series and I'm pretty sure we meet Heath further down the road I just can't place anyone at the moment. It's like starting from the beginning. There is so much action and although, I'm not sure you can move 3 feet without running into a cop in Vegas it was still a fun worthwhile read. I cannot get enough of Chandler. What a tough cookie.
Full of thrills, chills, and action, Chandler is an assassin on the trail of something that a man is auctioning off to the highest bidder. She is not informed of what the “something” is, only that she is to obtain it and bring it to her handler. After Chandler is not able to get the item from the auction place, she has to pose as something she is not and travels with the possessor to Las Vegas along with his bodyguard.
Chandler is baffled when she is unable to locate the item on the possessor before it it to be handed over to the highest bidder. When she finally realizes where it is, another assassin is in her way. After quite a few thrills, chills, and amazing feats, who will end up with the item? It certainly won’t be the highest bidder, but which assassin does it end up with?
Hit may keep you up all night. It certainly did me. Anyone a fan of any of the books written by either of these two authors, together, separately, or under any of their under names will certainly enjoy this series.
Not exactly what I was expecting, but I did like the story overall, it just wasn't totally in keeping with what I expected from Konrath. I really like the Jack Daniels series, and kind of expected it to have the same tone. But, the style of this was different. And I can't really say that I liked it. I didn't hate it, and it was a very quick read, but if I am being totally honest, just a tad disappointing.
There is a lot that goes on towards the latter half of the book, some of it is really outrageous. After reading this book, I would never, ever assume being a spy is glamorous. It is interesting because Chandler didn't seem like a bad person, but what she did wasn't exactly something I could cheer her on to complete. However, I didn't want her to die either. So I basically rooted for that, and waited to see what the outcome would be.
Given I am a fan of Konrath, I'll most likely continue with the series, especially since JD will be in a book at some point.
It was an excellent first, full of action and a little romance with a love-hate relation between the main characters. The plot is intense in all the book. My only dissapointment is the use of the Spanish language by Heath, who is supposedly hispanic descendant, raised in Mexico but can't manage something as basic as the genres in that language. And that cost the book one star less.
Minor issues with Hit (though nothing that kept me from enjoying the book immensely) would be these. As noted, the Heath character was a nice addition to the series (though, if I might offer a bit of criticism, his character as expressed through his dialogue occasionally veers a bit wildly between a Ricardo Montalban-type smoothie and the crudity of a gaggle of cholos waiting at the day-labor site on the corner. “Hey, mamacita!” indeed.)
Also, it strikes me that there were far more editorial issues/glitches with Hit than I’ve been used to seeing in the earlier Chandler books. For example, there is a sentence where Chandler is on the run and stops at a table with empty "desert plates" (rather than dessert). Little things, but still...
All in all, though, Hit is a great read and well worth the reader's time.
Top reviews from other countries
Three extremely over the top, but thoroughly enjoyable books, gain an addition to the series with: Hit.
Set sometime before the events of Flee (but given some of the people and scenarios mentioned, I believe this segues into 'Three' but I've not yet read so cannot confirm), Hit sees Chandler given a mission to take out an arms dealer but meeting her match in the form of his bodyguard.
Gun fights, martial arts, sex, lots of running, Vegas and bullets ensue in this fast paced short story which entertains and intrigues, even if it stretches believability. But heck, that's what the Chandler books are about. If you want snappy dialogue, some violence and sex, then this is a treat just for you.
Go buy, and buy the other books too (and Exposed - A Thriller (Chandler Series) and you won't be disappointed
