The Hit by David Baldacci
  

Lovereading view...

Government assassin, Will Robie from The Innocent, is sent to kill a fellow agent who has turned. She is a female colleague who Robie is intrigued as to why she should now be killing federal employees. Is there some rot at the top? So in true Baldacci escapist fashion we are given a highly unfeasible plot in a fast-paced, page-turning style that is pretty formulaic and gtreat fun. He is a true escapist’s author, one of the best.

If you like David Baldacci you might also like to read books by G. M. Ford, James Patterson and Tom Cain.

The trap is set. To send a killer to catch a killer. But what happens when you can't trust those who have access to the nation's most secret intelligence?
