From the Sunday Times number one best-selling author
Will Robie, from The Innocent and The Hit, returns in his toughest mission to date. A time to kill - or a time to die?
The mission is to enter one of the most dangerous countries in the world. The target is one of the toughest to reach. The result could be momentous - or it could be Armageddon. There is no margin for error.
US government operatives Will Robie and Jessica Reel have to prove they are still the best team there is. But are they invincible when pitted against an agent whose training has been under conditions where most would perish?
An old man is dying in an Alabama prison hospital, it seems there is one more evil game he has still to play. And it's a game which comes close to home for Reel and Robie. But this time the stakes might be way too high.
"David Baldacci has long proved one of the most accomplished of American thriller writers and has dabbled in a variety of genres…As ever Baldacci keeps things moving at express-train speed..this one will whet appetites for the next appearance of his agent hero" (

No idea ... but the Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy are (again) masterful at bringing the book to life. David Baldacci's writing and Ron and Orlagh's narration is a hard to beat combination.
The Target seems to be a collection of shorter stories woven together into a whole ... David Baldacci has created a great thriller which doesn't really let you relax much at any point. Start to finish in 2 days ... I just couldn't stop.
Ron and Orlagh bring the characters alive for me ... this is the 3rd Will Robie book, and the 5th I've listened to with them working together. I get lost in the characters and the story and forget it's an audiobook ... it becomes more of an audio play.
Don't know ... but I'd definitely be at the cinema to see it!
I think I'd have preferred a different ending to the book ... but I can tell I'm still pumped full of adrenaline - I hadn't really noticed it until I sat down to write this review.
