Reviews 'The Hit', authored by David Badacci was absolutely mind-boggling!! Will Robie and Jessica Reel are both professional, highly skilled assassins deployed by the U. S. government to eliminate enemies of the state and monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims. Reel is just as lethal as Robie, but she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency. Nobody understands the 'why' behind this, but to try to stop one of their own, the governments looks again to Will Robie to bring in Reel, dead or alive. It is the agency's premise that only a killer can catch another killer, which pitts Robie and Reel against one another. The two had started out training together, worked together for a time, and came to know one another well; each has a deep abiding respect for the talents and skills of the other. As Robie begins to pursue Reel, he very soon realizes there is more to her betrayal than what he's been told. Her attacks on the agency conceal a much larger threat that will send shock waves through the U.S. government and around the world. In an attempt to try to protect a woman in the #2 position in his agency, Robie goes to her home in a very sparsely populated area, and is amazed to learn she has only two men guarding her....particularly with two men high up in the agency already having been murdered. While the two are conversing inside, Robie hears muffled shots and discovers the two guards have been fatally wounded. He knows there are too many adversaries for him to successfully protect the woman in this situation and determines he needs to take her with him and flee, but she is shot before he can get her to his car. It is greatly surprising for him to realize a woman secluded behind trees is shooting at the enemy with a long distance rifle, which gives Robie time enough to get the gal he is trying to protect into a different vehicle that is far safer. He isn't positive, but is convinced the woman aiding him was Jessica, which only adds to his confusion about the true state of things. It is cloak and dagger stuff going on with the government agencies. Robie has always followed orders without question in the past, but he begins to wonder if now is the time to be more discriminatory because his people in the upper positions are being killed. He is almost certain Jessica is the shooter killing them, but can't believe she could be 'turned' and begins to seek answers as to why she would do this. The only way to find out is to find Jessica and talk to her before she kills him. This book most definitely keeps one on the edge of their seat throughout, and when finished reading it, be totally awestruck that anyone's mind has the ability to contrive such an intricate government plot. Highly recommend this book! I started this book on a Friday and couldn't put it down until i finished it on Sunday. Truly wonderful read!
At the end of the very first chapter, I wished I could stay in my comfortable chair as long as it took to finish this book. By the time the second chapter ended, well, let's just say the laundry didn't get done as planned and dinner was a couple of hours late. That said, I should have known that would happen; last April, I read The Innocent, the first of author Baldacci's series featuring unofficial government hitman Will Robie, and I didn't want that one to end either. Will is, of course, the best there is at his job, save perhaps one other: A hitwoman named Jessica Reel. And when Jessica suddenly goes off the grid and starts assassinating members of the government agency that employs her (and Will), guess who the powers that be pick to track her down and, if necessary, kill her? Needless to say, it's not that simple. Not only will Jessica prove to be a morethan-worthy opponent for Will, it's possible she's not a traitor at all, but rather trying to eliminate a clandestine plan orchestrated by someone (or several someones) inside the agency that threatens the well-being of governments throughout the world. It's up to Will to determine which side she's really on and then to decide how he'll proceed from there. Figuring that out takes quite a few plot twists and turns, and to a certain degree, some of it is expected. I did get a couple of chuckles along the way, especially when Will "watched an ad for Cialis with an older man and woman in bathtubs that were set outside. It was apparently a sexual metaphor he had never figured out." You're not alone, Will - try as I might, I just don't get it either. Given all the goings-on between Will and Jessica, there seemed to me to be only two ways the book could end, but thanks to Baldacci's great skill as a writer of thrillers, I couldn't be sure which would happen until the last couple of chapters. The final few pages set the stage for the next installment - and you can bet I'm already chomping at the bit to read that one as well! The Hit is David Baldacci's latest novel and it is one of his best works. Once you start reading it, you will not be able to put it down until the very last page of the last chapter. The story revolves around two of the US government's top assassins, Will Robie and Jessica Reel. It starts when an assignment to assassinate a Middle Eastern politician ends in the death of the man who is supervising the entire operation. The suspected killer is the agency's only woman assassin -- Jessica Reel. The agency now considers her a rogue agent and a murderer. To find Reel, the agency ropes in its best operative, Will Robie. But as Robie goes about his new task of finding Reel, he learns that she is one of the very best and that he has his work cut out for him. Jessica knows that she is being hunted down and that she has very little time to complete the task she has set out for herself. She needs to make sure she
"takes care" of all the people in her "list." And after she manages to target the agency's number two, things are getting extremely difficult for her. Plus, she knows she may not stand a chance against the best of the best -- Will Robie. Robie finds out that tracking down Jessica is not going to be easy. To make things more difficult, it seems the files the agency has given him are incomplete. He begins to feel that there is more to the case than meets the eye. Jessica must have her reasons and he intends to find out what they are. As Will is about to catch a break, the person he is meeting gets attacked and is shot before she could give him more information. As Will tries to save her life and his own, he gets help from someone he suspects to be Reel. But why would Reel help Robie? There is definitely something going on and Will finds that he cannot trust anyone. David Baldacci has gotten his groove back with this novel. There are so many unpredictable twists and turns which will leave the reader hooked. Although the way things were going with Robie and Reel, I could almost see how the book was going to end, the last chapter leaves the door open for another book in the Will Robie series. I can't wait for that next book to be published. I don’t know how David Baldacci managed to write two great novels in a row but he did, and that’s what counts. A few months ago he surprised us with the second instalment of his John Puller series “The Forgotten”, which was much better than the first novel, and now he pulls the same trick with his Will Robie vehicle “The Hit”. If there’s one thing someone can always come to expect from a Baldacci novel is high-octane action, unconventional heroes, conspiracy theories and enough twists and turns to make their head spin. If you add to that mix the “sympathy for the devil” element, then you’ll come to understand what this book is all about. I’m not saying that Will Robie is the devil, but he’s as close to him as they come, since he’s a gun for hire; though the US government’s gun for hire. He’s a coldblooded assassin, someone who’s supposed to have no feelings, who’s trained to follow orders without any second thought, and who’s not supposed to have a mind of his own. But is that even humanly possible? At first glance it looks as it is, but as the plot unravels and the mysteries, as well as the bodies, start piling up, things seem to change. And soon enough Robie doesn’t only start to question the motives of his superiors, but also those of himself. He’s supposed to be the good guy, no matter what he does; he’s serving his country; but are the rest of the people just as patriotic, or in some cases blindsided as he is? That’s not the only question that arises in his mind though; there are too many to list. Could he one day have a normal life? Could he connect with people like others do? Was he right to stay afar from the girl whose life he saved? Could he be loved? As one can easily guess, Robie is damaged goods. However, as it
seems, he’s not in this hell of a life all alone. There’s a rogue agent who’s in just a bad place, or even worst, as he is. And there are people, who in the names of patriotism or ambition, are willing to do just about everything; even become mass murderers, if that’s what it takes. Baldacci has given us yet another explosive novel, with lots of action and welldrawn characters that can take one’s breath away, and which I’ve read in one sit. I’d highly recommend it to all his faithful fans, but also to anyone else out there who enjoys a good thriller. David Baldacci never ceases to amaze me. Ok, sometimes he does but more often then not he writes a very tight exciting story. :-) This one was one of his best suspense thriller novels. The characters were well defined, and the action was non stop. This is the world in 2013 and if you believe that there are segments of our government that are not in synch with what most of us would believe would be the best interests of democracy, then you will really love this incredibly exciting page turner. I became totally invested in the two leads and felt for them throughout the book as they chased one another to the truth. This was fast paced and very scary on many levels including the knowledge that there are those in our country that want armed rebellion to bring down our elected government. Will stay with this series as i will for most of Baldacci's books.
