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 hitman…no 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.

What others are saying:
“The best Baldacci novel in years.”
“I pictured this book in a 10-word review: Page-turning, pulse-racing action, with surprises and thrills galore. Or as a one-word review: Mesmerizing.”
“[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
“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.”
“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.”
