      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 assignment.Find Jessica Reel and do whatever it takes to eliminate her. She’s accused of going rogue after killing agents in the agency.Jessica 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 [...]

    • Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) says:

      Oh 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 kin [...]

      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 up.Will Robie is a professional assassin with the CIA. He is the man the U.S. 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 equ [...]

      3.75 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 equally 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 [...]

      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.

    • Alicia Coast says:

      A great read. It had me guessing what would happen next throughout the entire book. Even when I thought I had it figured out something else was thrown in. The ending wasn't overly corny either, which is a happy relief from many books today.

    • Will M. says:

      The Hit is the second book in the Will Robie series. After that amazing first novel, one's expectations clearly rocketed. The problem with expectations though is that it most of the time lead to awful disappointment. The Hit is one of thosemost of the timesituations.The biggest letdown of this novel would be the one and only Jessica Reel. The main reason why I liked the first book was because of Will and Julie. I just didn't see much connection from Reel and Robie. Their relationship felt really [...]

    • Kurt Young says:

      SpoilersAnother Baldacci book that will keep you turning pages; as long as you don't bother to think. Baldacci writes enjoyable books, decent dialog, characters with some depth, but in too many a rediculously silly plot ends up spoiling all the fun.In "The Hit" a CIA contract-killer turns on the Agency and begins killing fellow officers. The CIA responds by sending out another killer, our hero, Will Robie, to find her and stop her. A move so obvious that even our bad girl killer anticipates it, [...]

    • Paul O'Neill says:

      Excellent book by an excellent author. Baldacci has become one of my go-to writers if I'm in the mood for some kick ass action.

    • 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 [...]

    • Anand says:

      I read the first book of the series 'The Innocent' last week, and just finished this latest offering. I am a convert now- a new follower of Baldacci! Like the first novel, this also is a very mature read (obviously, in the scheme of things of an average thriller, and not overly serious stuff). The character development is again fantastic, and this time there is another assassin in whom Will Robie finds his match. The emotions and trepidation of someone who is wired to kill in cold blood, of some [...]

    • Mike French says:

      Another page turner from David Baldacci! He is becoming one of my favorite authors of all time.

    • Javi says:

      After reading the fabulous previous book in the series, " The Innocent", I had high expectations for the sequel. And for about two thirds of the book they were mostly met with a very intriguing promise: a face-off between two super skilled government assasins. So far, so good. But inexplicably, in the last third part of the book, everything falls apart. I mean everything. The plot, which was confusing enough to begin with, takes a turn into something unexplainable as the doomsday scenario is not [...]

    • Michael says:

      It’s hard to pin down why I liked this better than its predecessor, “The Innocent”. Maybe it’s because fellow author Ron McLarty puts his theatrical skills to work so well as a reader for the audiobook form for imbibing “The Hit” (and supplemented with occasional sound effects—when do I stop calling this “reading”?). I put my other ongoing books aside to inhale this tale of a “Spy vs. Spy” scenario where our hero CIA hit man Will Robie is tasked to quickly retire a fellow a [...]

    • Rizwan says:

      A good, solid action-thriller, but not necessarily a mindblowingly great one. After enjoying the sheer awesomeness of The Innocent, I was eagerly waiting to read through the next Will Robie thriller, and although its a very entertaining read for the most part, I didn't thought it was one-of-a-kind like the previous one. The settings and the storyline had refreshingly taken a new direction, as structure-wise the two novels are as different as they can be (while still being in the same genre), whi [...]

    • Nilesh says:

      The worst of the book written under a deadline pressure is present in this novel. The story is based on a single somewhat interesting premise: an ace agency hitman after another ace agency hitman. However, the author is completely bereft of ideas on how to make the plot interesting from start and the story suffers throughout.The formulaic bad people on the inside in the absence of a powerful external enemy does not have to be galling by itself. However, when the most cliched action sequences and [...]

    • Skip says:

      Another winner from Baldacci. Will Robie is tasked with finding Jessica Biel oops, Freudian slip, I meant Jessica Reel, the only assassin who scored as high as he did in qualification testing. She has turned rogue, killing her handler and the #2 man (DDO) in the CIA. First, she rescues Robie and then he rescues her as he senses something is seriously wrong. Eventually they team up to take on the evil within. Tension filled, fun.

    • Veronica says:

      The second book in the Will Robie series is an enjoyable follow up to the first one. Some of the politics are a little overly done and the ending felt a bit rushed, with the final showdown somewhat anti-climactic, but the middle makes for an intriguing game of cat and mouse.

    • Serryl says:

      This was my first Baldacci novel. A co-worker gave it to me for free, saying that she rarely bothered keeping books past the first read. I found that comment odd at the time, but (having finished the book) I now see that "The Hit" is highly disposable. It's not bad, but there's little lasting value.My strongest criticism is of Baldacci's excessive tendency to tease the reader. Almost every conversation between characters is composed of abrupt statements that leave 80% of the meaning unsaid. Here [...]

    • Mike (the Paladin) says:

      I've read several books by David Baldacci. If I've had a problem with them it's been that often political and societal views get to be veryont and center. I even decided against starting a book by him recently based on a review of a friend who was hit in the face by this in a "different novel" by the writer.Here the author's views are present but they don't (in this book or the one preceding it) overwhelm the plot or the characters. I read the first in the Will Robie series and liked it. I found [...]

    • Maureen DeLuca says:

      This is the 2nd in the Will Robie series. The first book "The Innocent" was , for me, a 5 star read. I absolutely loved it! At one point during this read I was truly headed for a 4 star read-but towards the very end of this book there were way too many agency potential 'bad guys' to keep straight and having me then say "What?" I had to re- read it more than once, scratching my head. Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eli [...]

    • Fred Forbes says:

      I notice from some of the sniping in the less than complementary reviews that some people seem to have expectations for "professional government assassin" stories that I think are bit unrealistic. So one needs to suspend belief now and then about both characters speaking Arabic without an accent or all of a sudden having massive firepower in their hands or put up with a side jaunt to Ireland that makes little sense. The purpose of this type of book is to provide a bit of "mind candy" and enterta [...]

    • 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 Jessical 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.

    • Matt says:

      Baldacci’s latest brings the reader back to the Will Robie scene, the reluctant US sniper whose assignments always seem to pull on his moral compass. When assigned to remove a sniper gone rogue, Robie is left to chase her around, trying to piece together her next move before it is his last. With his friends in the crosshairs, Robie must find this renegade before it’s too late, while also piecing together a terror plot that’s fallen into his lap. What looks like a simple kill order at the o [...]

    • Monnie says:

      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 b [...]

    • Amy says:

      This is definitely my least favorite Baldacci book. First, I have read so many books since The Innocent that I didn't remember the background on Will, Julie, and Vance. Baldacci does NOTHING to help the reader remember these characters. Is that crucial for the book? No, and it does allow you to read them out of order. However, I found it frustrating as the true character identities were just out of grasp in my memory. Fortunately I still had The Innocent here to quickly skim the ending to rememb [...]

    • Tiffany Reisz says:

      3.5 starsMostly a standard issue thriller but a good page turner. Great last few lines.

    • VaultOfBooks says:

      By: David Baldacci. #2 in the Will Robie Series. Grade: B+The Hit is the second book in the Will Robie series by David Baldacci and it comes bang on the heels of “The Innocent” that introduced us to the cold-blooded assassin Will Robie. This is a stand-alone book and reads independently of book one, yet has enough meat for you get under the skin of the main character, Will Robie and get to like this machine-like deadly killer who is CIA’s best secret weapon.I was between books and this pro [...]

    • Terri Lynn says:

      I have been so busy lately it took me a while to read this. I like David Baldacci's work and the Will Robie character. Will Robie had a creepy childhood and his adult life hasn't been anything to write home about. He works as an assassin for the CIA. Yes, it is a fact that our government allows the CIA to murder people in cold blood and if the paid assassins get caught doing it, they pretend not to know anything about it. Robie is an elite even among these assassins but there is someone working [...]
