The Hit by David Baldacci


The Hit by David Baldacci

From David Baldacci--#1 bestselling author and one of the world's most popular, widely read storytellers--comes the most thrilling novel of the year. THE HIT 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 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.

Customer Reviews

Very disappointing

I have always like DB's books but this one had so many absolutely impossible scenarios and frankly absurd plotting that I would have quit reading after maybe 1/4 of the way. But since I had paid for it, I figured I'd keep reading and hope it got better or at least slightly believable. But it didn't.

It was a story with every possible cliche and impossible escape of the genre included in one book, a veritable "what not to do as a writer" guide for the prospective novelist.

I do not understand how this book came to be written, let alone published. After reading it I thought perhaps it was a very early "first attempt" novel by the author that had been resurrected because he is now well known. But no, it appears to actually be DB's current production. I don't know what happened to him but I hope he recovers.

Poor effort

Poorly contrived plot, amateurish dialogue... In a word: boring.

Simply awesome!!!

One of the best books I've read recently. Page turning suspense, great depth of characters, great plot.

Awesome job!!!
