“A winner…nonstop action and twists…The best Baldacci novel in years.” Associated Press
“[The Hit’s] pace is relentless, and Baldacci’s reworking of his perennial theme—absolute power corrupts absolutely—gives the book a sense of urgency and cultural relevance that many thrillers lack.” Richmond Times Dispatch
“I pictured this book in a ten-word review: Page-turning, pulse-racing action, with surprises and thrills galore. Or as a one-word review: Mesmerizing.” Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
“This is a page-turner of a book. You will see where it is going long before you get there but you won’t see who’s pulling the strings. Baldacci sets up a raft of villains that will keep you looking over your shoulder to the very end.” Daily Express (UK)
“An engrossing, action-packed thriller.” Examiner.com
“With a lightning pace, captivating characters, and astonishing twists throughout, The Hit is guaranteed to keep your attention from the first page to the last.” Times-News (North Carolina)
“Agent Will Robie is a master of killing, and David Baldacci’s thriller is an excellent match for audio. Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy prove a formidable team in ramping up the tension…McLarty does the lion’s share of the narration, finding unique voices for Robie and the various agents, while Cassidy smoothly and clearly portrays the various women involved. The use of two narrators helps provide tension and a theatrical atmosphere. Great narration skills and plotting will grip listeners.” AudioFile

Good audiobook.

The narration was superb. I just couldn't seem to give the story 5 stars. Can't put my finger on why. Buy the book you won't be disappointed.
