Book Review: The Hit (Will Robie #2) by David Baldacci
Synopsis on Good Reads
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 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.
My Review on Good Reads
5 of 5 Stars
The first thing I’ll recommend is read The Innocent first. The first book isn’t essential to the story in that it’s still an enjoyable book on its own, but you will enjoy it even more and understand some of the nuances better if you read the series in order. The second thing I’ll say is read the Innocent and then read The Hit! If government and undercover action mysteries sound like a match for you, you won’t want to put them down.
I’ve come to really love Will Robie. He’s a somewhat dark hero, but he’s a professional assassin; a somewhat dark occupation! Form the very beginning there is actin and a twist. And the just who is a good guy and who is a bad guy starts to blur by the end of the first chapter.
The book is riveting and as you get unto it you find it’s much bigger than just one rogue assassin and just the United States. With a huge list of books to choose from David Baldacci really has become my “go-to” author when I want to feel guaranteed I’ll enjoy the book I’m about to read.
