The President knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel.

Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair. They doubt their willingness to follow orders. And they will do anything to see that the two assassins succeed, but that they do not survive.

As they prepare for their mission, Reel faces a personal crisis that could well lead old enemies right to her doorstep, resurrecting the ghosts of her earlier life and bringing stark danger to all those close to her. And all the while, Robie and Reel are stalked by a new adversary: an unknown and unlikely assassin, a woman who has trained her entire life to kill, and who has her own list of targets-a list that includes Will Robie and Jessica Reel.

The best one so far in this series. Excellent plot, several different "adventures" keeps the reader involved, the narrators, as usual, do an outstanding job.

Because I just read King and Maxwell and was riveted throughout the whole book, I had to try another Baldacci book. Although I enjoyed listening to the Target, the start is slow and feels like walking through mud. However, the beginning did set enough hooks into me that I was unwilling to leave and wanted to see how the book finished. Out of the 11 discs, the action doesn't start happening until disc 6 or 7. Hearing the horrifying accounts of North Korea labor camps in this fictional novel is at times difficult to listen to (because you don't want to believe that people treat each other this way), but it does give you another world view perspective.

Baldacci is the best, well just about the best. Keeps you driving somewhere to listen to the book. Very suspenseful, looking forward to the next book.
