The thing I love about David Baldacci is that his books never disappoint you. The characters behave in predictable ways. Things work or don't work because this feeds the author's plan. In this case the marriage of the two assassins in the book (the figurative, not literal marriage) is something that works well and that keeps the reader off balance just enough to make the story enjoyable.
Another thing I really like is that female characters are voiced by a woman, and male characters are voiced by a male. Ron and Orlagh do a great job on this book. I loved their performances.
The story is solid, and after years of listening to so many of the author's other characters, these are not just the same old guys with the same old problems. There is a refreshing newness to the writing. This keeps his work from ever getting old.
You'll enjoy the book.

What made the experience of listening to The Hit the most enjoyable?
Ron McLarty has always been a standout narrator of David Baldacci books. It grabbed my attention from start to finish.
What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
They both go beyond reading and become the actual characters.
Any additional comments?
Other listeners have complained about the sound effects. I thoroughly enjoyed the sound effects, perhaps because I am old enough to remember radio dramas before the advent of TV. I hope other audio books will include sound effects.
