Description

The President knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel.

Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair. They doubt their willingness to follow orders. And they will do anything to see that the two assassins succeed, but that they do not survive.

As they prepare for their mission, Reel faces a personal crisis that could well lead old enemies right to her doorstep, resurrecting the ghosts of her earlier life and bringing stark danger to all those close to her. And all the while, Robie and Reel are stalked by a new adversary: an unknown and unlikely assassin, a woman who has trained her entire life to kill, and who has her own list of targets--a list that includes Will Robie and Jessica Reel.

    I enjoyed the first 2 books, but the plot in this one is completely implausible, from some weird neonazi extremist kidnapping and patricide to a bizarre rescue of some characters we absolutely do not care for in a North Korean labor camp to the dumbest assassination attempt on the First Family. Characters are either good, so we must see them as heroes or victims, or evil, so they are completely shallow and must predictably die. No moral dilemmas whatsoever. Ending is very predictable, rushed, and abrupt. Feel free to skip this one. Not sure if I'll be picking up the 4th entry now.
  • Disappointing.

    Very disappointing. Far-fetched, crazy, unrealistic, predictable. Unlike other Robie reads.

    David Baldacci writes some of the best suspenseful stories I've ever read. This is another one in a long list of great books. I must admit I was teary-eyed at the end. I love Jessica Reel and Will Robie together! They work so well together and I love how they always have each other's back....Bravo, Mr. Baldacci!

    Have rated most of his previous books 4 stars. This one is simplistic and unimaginative.
  • Do NOT buy - possibly not written by Baldacci

    Nothing about this book reads like a Baldacci. It’s almost like he got some to “co-author” it for him. Do yourself a favour and get the sample first - you’ll know what I mean. S-L-O-W, dull, “I can’t believe it’s a Baldacci” book. Terribly painful.
