The Hit

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 can match Robie’s talents as a hitman…no one, except Jessica Reel.

A fellow assassin—and 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 its own, the government looks again to Robie.

His mission: Reel in Reel, dead or alive.

Because only a killer can catch another killer, they tell him.

(Think this tale is that cut and dried? Think again…)

As Robie pursues Reel, he quickly finds there’s 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.
