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.


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 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.

    Can't go wrong with David Baldacci and Ron McLarty. This is definitely a man's man book. May not be right for the soft or female.

    Baldacci is awful at dialog between characters. At times it makes the book hard to listen to.

    I wish I had read his books in order. Listened to a couple others that he wrote later so thwe s was like a prequel. It explained a lot though. Wasn’t that into the southern accent this female character had since it does not seem that way in later books.

    I’ve read several Baldacci novels and have enjoyed them all until now. If I had to use one word to describe this piece of work that word would be tedious.

    Nice ride with some surprising twist

  • Greg T

    Enjoyed all the David Baldacci series. Ron McLarty is the best narrator so far.

  • Laurie McVittie

    It's an experience to listen to any of the David Baldacci books. The story-telling is great, the storylines are captivating, and we enjoyed the male and female narrators. Ron and Orlaugh do great jobs. We are huge fans and listen to them on our trips and local drives, sometimes going out of our way to listen a little longer. We just started the next in the series and we are never disappointed.

    I enjoy the male/female narration. Often times when a book is narrated by just one person, it's awkward when they speak dialogue for the opposite sex. Ron and Orlaugh do an amazing job and heightens the enjoyment of the storytelling

    I love this series! I did The Innocent first and realized this was the most recent of a four book series and went back to the beginning. I really love the way he develops the characters and yet each book stands on its own! I've been a huge fan ever since Absolute Power!

  • Samantha Gately

    I've listened to a couple of his books on tape so far and love all of them! The narration definitely plays a huge part in a good book on tape as well! Love both the author and narrator!
