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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The assassination must be both successful and untraceable. Anything less would bring the president down and endanger the nation. To complete the mission, this meticulous chief executive turns to a team that he believes is unassailable: Will Robie and Jessica Reel. But this masterful pair has enemies, some of whom are dedicated to making this their very last assignment. David Baldacci’s The Target holds multiple layers of suspense and plot surprises.”

    Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review

  • “In unsparing detail, Baldacci depicts the brutal conditions in the North Korean camp, in particular their impact on twenty-five-year-old Yie Chung-Cha, a prisoner groomed as a deadly assassin.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Baldacci picks up where he left off with CIA assassins Will Robie and Jessica Reel in this no-holds-barred tale of perfidy and murder at the highest level…Robie and Reel fans will thrill to see their favorite spies back in action.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy are a great team of narrators in this lightning-paced thriller. More exciting adventures and plenty of violence are in store for trained assassins Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel, even though some doubt their ability to follow orders. McLarty’s performance is heartfelt and empathetic, and Cassidy’s warm, low voice takes the hard edge off of Jessica’s character. Cassidy’s use of pacing and accents adds both drama and character to the wide variety of other female characters, including North Korean Min, who is ten years old, and her savior, Comrade Yie. Together, the narrators pull the listener into the plot’s many twists and turns. Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award.”
