There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The whole shebang stretches credulity (well, mine anyway) beyond breaking point, and to be honest I found it a bit of a chore to read. By two-thirds, I was simply past caring who lived and died and who did what to whom. I might take a pass on future Robie and Reel books, should there be any more.
As other reviewers have indicated, after few chapters I had to check the front to make sure I wasn't reading a Jack Reacher story.
What shocked and disappointed me most, however, was the way in which David Baldacci has, in this book, completely changed the characters of Reel and Robie. Although both of them are government assassins, David Baldacci has always given the characters a strong personal sense of morality which made it possible to like and even admire them in spite of what they do. In 'End Game' Jessica Reel, always shown as a brave, capable, and independent woman, is turned into some sort of Mills and Boon heroine, creeping into Robie's room to leave meaningless notes, and coming out with lines like 'I love you Will, but you can't fix me'!!!
Robie, becomes a second class Jack Reacher. Lee Child has always depicted Jack as a fighting hero with a rather casual attitude when it comes to women, so we expect and accept it. In this book, however, Robie, previously shown as a disciplined, focused and loyal person. becomes a contemptible character who, in the middle of what is supposed to be an urgent search for a man he likes and admires, leaves the he woman he says he loves to go and have sex with a woman he hardly knows. He uses Malloy and walks out when he's done - at least Jack Reacher shows some respect for the women he sleeps with.
The plot of this book is also completely flawed. Too many bad guys popping up all over the place, too many conveniently staged rescues, too much sloppy characterisation and too little adequate motivation for what's happening.
I definitely won't be buying any more Robie and Reel books and as someone who has every book David Baldacci has written I am a bit wary of buying any of the others now.
Is he going to sabotage John Puller, Amos Decker, Shaw and the Camel Club next?
I know If I read David Baldacci, it going to be good !
So no let downs here, as Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of my favourite characters from one of my favourite authors.
Robie and Reel are complex characters, and anything they do is a pleasure to follow . . ." Baldacci knows how to get readers to turn the pages, and he's in top form here" "An edge-of-the-seat ride from one of the world's thriller masters ". . ." The heart-stopping action shows Baldacci is in fine form". Such true comments from some Baldacci fans and reviews.
Will Robie, highly trained assassin and the US government’s most indispensable asset, is called to London.
An imminent terrorist attack threatens the Underground and with the US next in line, Robie is the perfect choice to stop it before it begins.
He knows he has one chance to succeed. One chance to save London. One chance to make it safely home to find out what has happened to fellow agent Jessica Reel following their last deadly mission together.
Jessica Reel is fighting her own battles and recovering from her injuries in Iraq.
But Robie is about to learn that even if he succeeds, the worst is yet to come.
The Blue Man is missing
The game has started. Now only Will Robie and Jessica Reel can end it ....
This story allows Baldacci time for the growing relationship between Robie and Reel, a clever, different, well paced, action packed thriller.
Lots of great characters, especially Sheriff Malloy.
I really enjoyed this book reading half the book in two days !
