Reviews for Hit

AudioFile Reviews 2013 May
Agent Will Robie is a master of killing, and David Baldacci's thriller is an excellent match for audio. Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy prove a formidable team in ramping up the tension as Robie, a highly skilled hit man, pursues Jessica Reel, a fellow agent and assassin who appears to have gone rogue. Robie quickly finds that there's more to Reel's apparent betrayal than meets the eye, including a significant global threat. McLarty does the lion's share of the narration, finding unique voices for Robie and the various agents, while Cassidy smoothly and clearly portrays the various women involved. The use of two narrators helps provide tension and a theatrical atmosphere. Great narration skills and plotting will grip listeners. S.C.A.
