Robie had killed evil before. People were happy, thrilled, that another monster had met his end. But the world went on, as screwed up as ever, and another monster - maybe even worse - would replace the fallen one.
On that clear, crisp morning in the normally serene Central Park, his trigger pull would be remembered for a while. Investigations would be made. Diplomatic broadsides exchanged. More people would die in retaliation. And then life would go on.
When government hit man Robie is given his next target he knows he is about to embark on his toughest mission yet. He is tasked with killing one of their own following evidence to suggest that fellow assassin Jessica Reel has been turned. She is leaving a trail of death in her wake. Including her handler.
The trap is set. To send a killer to catch a killer. But what happens when you cannot trust those who have access to the nation's most secret intelligence?
The White Rose was the name taken by a resistance group of mostly college students in Munich during World War II who worked against the tyranny of the Nazis. The group had taken its name from a novel about peasant exploitation in Mexico. Most of the members of the White Rose were executed by the Nazis. But pamphlets they had printed were smuggled out of Germany and dropped by the millions from Allied bombers. After the war the members of the White Rose had been hailed as heroes.
❤️ I seem to love every Baldacci book I read (I have not read as many, but he manages to deliver every time).
This story had me guessing what would happen next throughout the entire plot. Even when I thought I had it figured out there came a new twist.
The ending was not corny either, which is a good change to many books today.
If you enjoy conspiracy theories, you will definitely enjoy this.
