If you haven't read 20 or 30 previous David Baldacci novels, you will probably find this suspenseful, full of surprises, and fast paced. I didn't, but I still enjoyed it enough to read the novel that follows this one in the Will Robie series.
David Baldacci brings back Will Robie in The Hit, this second in the Will Robie series. Robie works for the US Government, but in a department that the US Government would deny any knowledge of...that being the Department of Sanctioned Assassinations. And don't worry...no spoilers here...all this is evident in the first few pages of the book.
Robie is the best at what he does. He kills people. But what if the second best assassin was almost as good as Robie? And what if the second best went rogue, and Robie's next assignment was said rogue agent? If said rogue agent were smart, and SHE is indeed smart, the tables could be quickly turned and Robie may be the one joining his past targets in the afterworld.
The Hit was an awesome page-turner, and Baldacci weaves some of Robie's past endeavors and characters from the previous novel The Innocent into the best Baldacci book that I've read to date. Some of Baldacci's work prior to The Hit had too many implausible scenarios (there are still a few here), where literally you would find yourself saying out loud, "Cmon, Dave, gimme a break." However, The Hit was extremely well written and super entertaining. If you like a good thriller, click the Add to Cart button...you won't be disappointed.
4 ½ stars.
What happens when two equally matched CIA agents (or whatever top secret organization they work for) are pitted against each other...each trying to kill the other. As with all Baldacci books, all is not what it seems when Robie gets the orders from on high to hunt down and kill Jessica Reel for she has turned or been turned rogue agent after "assassinating" two high-level CIA officials. I am a conspiracy theorist at heart and believe that truth is stranger than fiction, however when people complain that this coudn't have happened this way or that, I really want to know how they in fact know that it couldn't, I don't care if this gun wouldn't do this or that or the shooter couldn't be that good....it is called fiction for a reason and I read for entertainment, not reality, that is why we have CNN and really how much of that is real??????
I am not going to spoil my review by giving the reader a glimpse of the end, but I will see this....I can't wait to hear more from Will Robie.
