Review--The Target by David Baldacci

The Target (Will Robie, #3)The Target by David Baldacci
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Will Robie and Jessica Reel have been called upon again to defend their country. And, as usual this is going to be a difficult mission.  This is a little different though because they have to go back through training before being deployed.  Why?  Well, the DCI, Evan Turner, wants them to prove their loyalties to the country.  He is still having a little trouble trusting them after their last mission.

Meanwhile, in North Korea Yie Chung-Cha is preparing for a mission of her own.  Raised in a labor camp in Yodok she made the way out by killing her own family and performing for the Supreme Leader.  She is preparing a retaliation move on the United States for a foiled plot.

Another great book by David Baldacci.  He has me on the edge of my seat again.  Wanting to know what is going to happen next.  I have listened to the other books in this series and was a little disappointed when the gunshots and explosions didn't jump off the page.  The audio versions of the Robie books have actual gunshots and explosions that will have you ducking for cover.

This installment of Robie series, gets deeper into Jessia Reel's past, has appearances by Super Agent Vance, and Julie Getty.  This story was like an unusual roller coaster ride.  It takes you up gets you all excited and then the excitement dies down all to be drawn back up again.  I hope there is going to be more from Robie and Reel, because they always keep me on the edge.  The excitement is contagious and I can't wait for the next book.
