I have just finished reading The Hit by David Baldacci. The brilliant plotting, unexpected turns, thrills and vicious spills elevates this crime thriller to ‘unputdownable’ level.
Amongst the inner circle of duplicitous government assassins lurks a suspected rogue operator. Ace assassin Will Robie is given his next hit – he is tasked with killing one of his own, Jessica Reel, who’s leaving a trail of death in her wake. Has she been turned against her employers, the nation’s secret intelligence service, or are there other reasons for her sudden nefarious actions?
Surprises shoot the reader between the eyes from the first pages and tension builds as affinity sways back and forth between the uncompromising, hard-core assassins Robie and Reel.
This is 574 pages of eyebrow-raising excitement.
