The Target (Will Robie 3) - David Baldacci
David Baldacci is becoming one of my favourite thriller authors. I loved King & Maxwell so when my Aunty Maureen loaned me The Target I couldn't wait to start it.
Although third in the Will Robie series, it was my first Will Robie book. I do think reading the first two books beforehand would have been beneficial to explain some of the history behind Will Robie and Jessica Reel, but I really enjoyed it as a stand-a-lone novel nonetheless.
The book tells the story of the US agents training for a hit on the North Korean leader which quite quickly goes wrong after the North Korean ally is discovered. This causes the North Koreans to retaliate and send out their own assassin and the book ends with a showdown between the two.
A definite page turner building up to an assassination attempt on US soil, with a nice twist showing that even bad guys or gals are human after all.
A big 5 stars from me and I'll be looking out for books 1 and 2 in the series.
Buy it from The Book Depository
