The Target Synopsis

Government operatives Will Robie and Jessica Reel are faced with a lethal mission. An attack from North Korea looks likely as US involvement in an attempted coup is revealed, and a bond of trust has been broken at the very highest level. Chung-Cha is a young woman who was raised in the infamous Yodok concentration camp. It's a place where honour, emotion and compassion don't exist. Cold, calculating and highly skilled, Chung-Cha has been trained to kill. And the task she has been given is to destroy the enemy at all costs. A dangerous and deadly operation of cat and mouse plays out between East and West. But who will be the hunter and who will be the hunted when the true target is finally revealed ...?

The Good Book Guide Review

How on earth does he do it? The American writer David Baldacci is undoubtedly one of the most prolific of modern thriller specialists, producing (over many years) a series of truly individual thrillers in a variety of genres, with very few missteps along the way. What’s more, he appears to carry on without an army of collaborators (the latter a syndrome that is increasingly the norm among thriller writers) and The Target continues this healthy trajectory. Government assassin Will Robbie has to deal with the fallout from the conflict between the US and North Korea, and it’s as compelling a read as any of Baldacci’s recent books.
