Description

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.

    This book nabbed me from the first chapter! At times the book is intense and I couldn’t bear to put it down. I like the Will Robie character; I like his strength, the fact that he uses his head and while he might follow orders 99% of the time, he also questions himself and authority. He is idealistic, which isn’t very politically savvy, but on the other hand if we can’t believe there is good there’s no point taking our next breath. I also liked Jessica’s character, although she went rogue you can see how she would have come to this point. Loved the twists and turns. I also liked Blue Man. This is the 2nd book in the series I’ve read and I’ll definitely be reading the next in line. This is what Baldacci does best! Keep it coming!

    I felt like was a good start but it petered out and left me disappointed. Felt like he phoned it in. The Robie series started nicely, but no where to go with this.
  • Great read, as usual for Stuart!

    Very weak. No plot. No action. No characters. This is my first and last David Baldacci book.
  • Great read

    This second book is another great "Will Robie" read. I am looking forward to additional Robie series.

    Loved the book.. I waited a long time for this one... I have read them all and this was very good.. I just miss the Camel Club Crew!!! The books that shared characters seemed to draw on intrigue more...
