Gotta love Will Robie - the government hit man with heart and soul

The Hit  (Will Robie, #2)The Hit by David Baldacci
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Gotta love Will Robie - the government hit man with heart and soul.

This is the second book in the Will Robie series. It bears mentioning here that you really should read book one, The Innocent, first. If you don't then I believe there may be a bit of confusion regarding Julie and Vance, his friend from the FBI.

Robie has been ordered to kill a killer in this thrilling work. But as usual, all is not as it seems, there is something below the surface that makes Robie suspicious about the government and their motives, while also making him wonder if the killer he has been ordered to hit had reasons for her actions. We are led on a bread crumb trail through an amazing plot, feverishly turning pages to see what will happen next. Characters are so well drawn you feel like you've been invited to secret meetings. You really care what happens in this well-crafted tale.

This book fell just slightly short of the first in the series, a common fate. It was so good though, that I'm looking forward to the third book in the series - I hope there is one!
