2.0 out of 5 stars What is David Baldacci doing.....?, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Target (Will Robie Series) (Hardcover)
The first Robie book was an excellent start; the second had its moments but was pushing credibility too far which spoilt the emergence of Jessica Reel, now "The Target" does it all over again. Baldacci is an excellent author but at times you would think he is writing under pressure to deliver so many books in a given time frame and as a consequence the quality has diminished alarmingly. I enjoyed the book by blanking out sections which will sound strange but I think you have to or you wonder what is the author up to. The starting plot is excellent and well written; the move to North Korea equally good, even the side plot with the neo-Nazis was interesting until the outcome when once again the hero just seems to have access to anyone and everything to secure a result. It marginally got back on track with the original theme and then out of the blue they are off to a rescue mission deep inside North Korea with an ex-pat who just happened along and was willing to ‘help’; the whole episode was so poor it ruined the remainder of the book. I can accept a lot of literary licence but Baldacci is over doing it and ruining it for two potentially interesting characters. He did the same with his Maxwell and King and John Pullen books.
