Publisher's Summary

The trap is set. Failure is not an option.

When government hit man Will Robie is given his next target he knows he’s about to embark on his toughest mission yet. He is tasked with killing one of their own, following evidence to suggest that fellow assassin Jessica Reel has been turned. She’s leaving a trail of death in her wake, including her handler.

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?

Fairly good story

It seems strange that the voice of Ron McLarty has changed it was much more throaty in the first. It's a good story and I have downloaded the next. hope everything is ok with the narrator?

GREAT BOOK , GREAT NARRATION!!

I CAN ALMOST GUARANTEE I AM GOING TO ENJOY A BOOK NARRATED BY RON McLARTY AND ORLAGH CASSIDY AND THIS ONE WAS NO DIFFERENT. THE DAVID BALDACCI BOOKS JUST FEEL A CUT ABOUT THE OTHER AUDIO BOOKS. THE CHARACTER OF WILL ROBEY IS MEMORABLE AND I HOPE BALDACCI WILL CONTINUE WITH THIS CHARACTER.

Great story

Love the characters and the story is immersive and entertaining. Love this series of books and engaging narration - with just the right touch of sound effects.

Loved it

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. The characters are human and you find yourself gunning for them. No unexpected twists or turns but still a really good read. Well worth the credit.
I have read all David Baldaccis books and this is up there as a favourite.

Probably a good book, but spoilt by narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is the second book in the 'Will Robie' series. I gave up on the first book after just 30 mins. I flicked thru a couple of minutes of this book. The same boring scary monotones of 'Ron McLarty'.Other book reviewers suggest that this is a great read from David Buldacci.It is the narrator that brings a book to life, and 'value adds' to the experience. Ron McLarty does NOT have this skill.P.S. I absolutely hate "Sound Effects". Save that stuff for the movies and the big screen.

Any additional comments?

It is the narrator that brings a book to life, and 'value adds' to the experience. Ron McLarty does NOT have this skill.I will make sure that any future purchase does not involve him.
