Publisher Comments:

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.

The job of a government hit man is never through. The minute he finishes one job, it's on to another. This time, the agency is after one of their own, an assassin as good as�"if not better than�"Robie himself. It's a race, killer against killer, and all is not as it seems. I love the way Baldacci crafts his characters in a very realistic manner, with a keen sense of pacing and detail.
The development of both Robie and Reel is stellar in form. Two killers with the similar skill set, tracking each other and making hits that leave the ignorant victims and witnesses with their heads spinning, thinking a traceless ghost has done the impossible. Only--Baldacci is so meticulous with his descriptions that the reader knows exactly how it was done, and we are left in awe of individuals with finely-honed skills.

Also highly entertaining is to read the acknowledgements at the end of each book and find out that one of the things Baldacci does is name characters after charity donors who request it! And the characters are always amazing. Well played, sir!
