    I loved this bookWill Robie returns in David Baldacci’s The Hit the 2nd book in the Will Robie Series After his last disastrous mission in The Innocent he returns home and given a new assignmentFind Jessica Reel and do whatever it takes to eliminate her She’s accused of going rogue after killing agents in the agencyJessica Reel is a fellow assassin who he’s worked and trained with in the past and he’s baffled about her turning against the people and the company she has worked with But this will not stop him from doing his jobAs he gets closer to Reel certain events pertaining to this case show that there’s to what information he has been given And when a high level CIA boss who he had met with to talk about his suspicions is killed he realizes that something is now right about his missionWill and Jessica come face to face they realize that to survive they will have to work together to finding the people who are trying to kill them both They will have to use all the skills to staying alive “Success or failure was always defined largely during the preparation With good planning all one had to do was execute Even last second changes could be made with greater ease if the planning in the first place had been precise” I loved Jessica Reel She’s a hardened and ruthless assassin jaded as just as lethal as Will “Sorry it’s come to this Will Only one can survive of course” Jessica Reel We The chapters told from Jessica's POV give a deeper insight into her character and some of the reasons why she becomes an assassin “What happened to you as a child particularly something bad changed you absolutely and completely It was like part of your brain became closed off and refused to mature any further As an adult you were powerless to fight against it It was simply who you were until the day you died There was no “therapy” that could cure it That wall was built and nothing could tear it down”“She apparently didn't expect any trouble but she also never expected everything to go perfectly either That was a good rule to live by Robie knew Because perfection was rarely the case in the field” Will begins to uestion what he does Who determines what is good or bad or should die or live He also has to deal with having Julie Getty the young teenager he saved in The Innocent in his lifeGreat character developmentI am very interested in Will’s boss the Blue Manhe’s a mystery and we never discover who he really isFantastic and gripping plot filled with death defying action tension and a gripping and dramatic climax A total page turner that will keep you glued to the seat of your chairIf you love political thrillers this series is a must

    2nd read completed in 42018 on AudiobookI am rereading these first book on audiobook and I have to say it was a great idea I love the way the narrators brought these beloved characters to life Will and Jessica are mirrors of each other and the way in which Baldacci explores that relationship is beautiful Jessica's life seems tragic than Will The fact that she isn't a sociopathic machine killer is a great testiment to her inner character considering the way she grew up and the fact that this was exploited when she was recruited as an assassin I like that Will was not the type to just go straight to eliminating her He asked uestions and delve deeper based on the fact that what he knew about Reel didn't gel with what he was told I like that they don't stay adversaries very long yes it's a spoiler but you know this if you follow the series I think they make a great team Plus Julie likes JessicaI recommend these books if you haven't read themOh man I loved this book Baldacci took the firm foundation he built in The Innocent and kicked it up sky high It was like he asked How can I really do something interesting with Will Robie in the next book? And he did He introduced Jessica Reel Jessica Reel is the female counterpart to Will and that is something indeed Jessica is Grade A high level lethal kickbutt to the extreme Her life is as edgy as you can image just like Will I love bonafide tough women characters and it's kind of hard to find the well done ones But Baldacci has impressed me because that is definitely JessicaI liked her so much I really didn't want her and Will to be adversaries Good thing that Baldacci resolves that very well in this book Because if you have someone guarding your back you'd want someone like Will or Jessica And you definitely wouldn't want them gunning for youAs far as the action this book is high level Yet the plot and a workable story isn't sacrificed just for a good action scene Everything holds together and if it served the story better not to have an onscreen action scene Baldacci wasn't afraid to do that This book is a good combination of action and thrillersuspense I don't love a lot of political conspiracy type storylines because I just find it dry but it's well done here Not too much to bore me but sufficient for the story With characters like Will and Jessica you have understand what their motivations are and what would push them over the edge and that was here in the novelThe pacing was excellent I never got bored Any downtime between action seuences progresses the story and allows us to learn about the characters Actually one of my favorite parts of this book was seeing the way Will and Jessica's minds worked It's uncanny how their minds seemed to click That was the fun of this book Had Baldacci decided to take it in another direction it still would have been a fantastic book but I liked it better the way it was done And I have high hopes to see of this dynamic duo or at least see Jessica pop up again I did get my other wish for this book I did get to see Julie again She wasn't in this book as much but it fits the story It was just good to know that she and Will are still in each others' lives and they know they can count on each other Also great to see Nikki Vance and Blue Man againI can't say enough good things about this book Just adored it I definitely want to get copies of these books for my collection because Will is definitely on my list and Jessica as well Please write books about Will Mr Baldacci

    Baldacci delivers again If you like conspiracy stories chances are you will like this one When I started reading this book I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it as much The Innocent the first book in the series But fortunately things picked up and didn't let upWill Robie is a professional assassin with the CIA He is the man the US government calls on to eliminate our enemies terrorists traitors He is not the only professional assassin with the CIA Jessica Reel a fellow assassin is eually professional dangerous and maybe as skilled as Robie But now she appears to have gone rogue having killed two fellow members of the agency To catch a killer you send another killer This is what Robie's superiors tell him But as Robie pursues Reel he finds that there is to her betrayal than meets the eye There appears to be a vast conspiracy that involves many in different levels of government Some in very powerful positions In order to try and stop the conspirators from succeeding and unleashing havoc on a global scale Robie and Reel will need to work together They will have to trust each other because they can't be sure who else can be trusted Even within their own agencyThere used to be a TV show in the 1960's The Prisoner starring Patrick McGoohan as a British former secret agent who is abducted and held prisoner in a mysterious village where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job They do not use names in the village Everyone is assigned a number McGoohan's character Number Six which he refuses to acknowledge usually went up against Number Two who tried to extract information from him on behalf of the unseen Number One I saw a lot of similarities in this novel You knew many of the conspirators and even Number Two but the story left you guessing until the very end on the identity of Number One

  4. Linda Wells Linda Wells says:

    Baldacci created a scenario incorporating contemporary government inter agency struggles to expose and eliminate a plot that would de stablilize major worldwide political forces Two US government assassins Will Robie and Jessica Reel set out to thwart the plot At times they find themselves in potentially fatal competition with each other Baldacci blends political reality and believably constructed fiction to produce a great story

    He checked his rearview for Vance Reel and assorted bogeymenI’m not growing paranoid I am paranoid And who could blame me?cHer firm core had come from agonizing exercise and careful diet It had nothing to do with appearance The core was power central And fat slowed you down In her world that was poisoncThere were three ways to approach the mission For a mission was what Jessica Reel was onYou could start from the bottom and move to the topOr start at the top and move to the bottomOr you could mix it up be unpredictable go in no particular orderThe first option might be symbolically pureThe third approach greatly improved Reel’s odds of success And her ability to surviveShe opted for success and survival over symbolismcIt had been traumatic in ways that even now Reel didn’t fully understand or appreciate The experience had come to define her and guaranteed that many normal things people did in life would never be part of hersWhat happened to you as a child particularly something bad changed you absolutely and completely It was like part of your brain became closed off and refused to mature any further As an adult you were powerless to fight against it It was simply who you were until the day you died There was no “therapy” that could cure it That wall was built and nothing could tear it downMaybe that’s why I do what I do Engineered from childhoodc“It’s ancient history I’m not much into history I try to be of a forward thinker”“Your compartmentalization skills are amazing Robie”He shrugged “Necessary part of the job Hindsight might be twenty twenty You learn from mistakes and you move on But every situation is different One size does not fit all”“A lot like working cases So how much longer are you going to be doing what you’re doing?”“How long are you going to be doing what you’re doing?”“Probably till I drop”“You really think so?”“I don’t know Robie You said you’re a forward thinker I’m of a live in the present kind of person So when are you going to call it uits?”“I probably won’t be the one making that decision”She sat back took in the meaning of his words nodded “Then maybe you should try to make sure you’re the one deciding”“Doesn’t go with the territory Vance”They said nothing for about a minute Each played with the drink in front of themFinally Vance asked “Have you seen Julie?”“No” he replied“Didn’t you promise her you’d keep in touch?”“I promised you too and look what happened”“But she’s just a kid” countered Vance“That’s right She has a long life ahead of her”“But a promise is a promise”“No not really” answered Robie “She doesn’t need me anywhere near her She’s got a decent shot at a normal life I’m not going to screw that up for her”“Noble of you”“Whatever you want to label it”“You’re a really hard person to relate to”Robie again said nothing“I guess as long as you do what you do this is how it’ll be”“It is what it is”“Do you wish it could be different?”Robie started to answer this seemingly simple uestion and then realized it was not nearly as simple as it appeared to be “I stopped wishing a long time ago Vance”“Why keep doing it then? I mean I have a crazy ass life though nothing like yours But at least I have the satisfaction of putting slime away”“And you think I don’t?”“I don’t know Do you?”Robie put some cash down on the table and rose “Thanks for the call It was nice catching up And good luck on your case”“Do you really mean that?”“Probably than you know actually”c

    I can't believe I'm the only person who didn't like this book It felt like he wrote it in a day just to get a book out The characters were not developed at all They came and went in the blink of an eye The doomsday scenario wasn't explained thoroughly at all Every scene they just sort of poof killed who they needed to kill I thought this book was very generic

    375 StarsWill Robie is an exceptional CIA assassin whose true love is his current weapon of choice When an agency “handler” and the Deputy Director of the CIA are executed the evidence points to another eually skilled killer Jessica Reel and the white paper dubbed “Apocalypse” — a recipe for eliminating menacing leaders of unstable regions simultaneously Initially accepting his superiors’ conclusion Robie packs up his arsenal and sets out to hunt down and kill Jessica Reel before she can return the favor Baldacci serves up enough action and suspenseful espionage to keep the pages turning Although at times Robie doesn’t seem to possess nearly the bravado one might expect he is — without a doubt — an adversary from which nightmares abound And those pulling his strings have overlooked one crucial element Robie is just as adept at calibrating his suspicions as he is a sniper rifleChock full of political agendas henchmen and believable conspiracies The Hit is nearly just that

    I read the first book in this series and I thought it was okay This one had me hooked The author has a way of balancing action with story that works really well

  9. Suzanne Suzanne says:

    There were some really entertaining moments in this book but I did not get into it as much as I did book one I will continue the series because I do like the character of Will Robie and want to see how things go on the Jessica Reel front If you like conspiracy types of storylines I believe you will enjoy this book and series from what I have read My uick and simple good but had trouble really getting into this installment

  10. Luffy Luffy says:

    It's with a disappointment of ample magnitude that I greeted the final chapters of this book This proves that no book is guaranteed to excel whoever the author But Baldacci didn't do many things wrong He just wasn't inspired to write another breathtaking spy novel There was not only goodwill that carried over from the first book There was also attachment I cared about Will Robie and though I knew he wouldn't die I cared about the people who mattered to him This book is about on the same level as The Forgotten with similarly genteel twists and suspense that lacked mordant Strictly speaking David Baldacci has yet to fail me he didn't even completely bail out It's just that the third book in the series The Target is now a mortal among books as there is no great hype from this one to carry over
