    David Baldacci is back with another in his hard-hitting Will Robie series, which matches an impactful thriller with some social commentary. After a harrowing mission in London, Will Robie is summoned to see the new Director of Central Intelligence. He’s met there by his sometimes partner, Jessica Reel, who has just come off her own mission that ended quite poorly. Together, they are informed that their handler, Roger ‘Blueman’ Walton, has g...

    No doubt about it: Government-sanctioned assassins Will Robie and Jessica Reel have never fail to get the job done, even when it comes at great personal cost and a smattering of collateral damage. This time, though, their efforts border on overkill (pun intended).Will and Jessica are returning to action after separate assignments that left them physically and mentally devastated. They've healed as much as humanly possible, but Jessica's mind is s...

    I have read several David Baldacci books, but this is the first I've read in his Will Robie series. And, after finishing this one so do I, of course, want to read the previous four books. As usual is Baldacci's writing on top and I love how the book from page one to the last is filled with action. No slow parts in this book for sure.For a new reader is this book pretty easy to get into. I find it very easy to get the gist of the main characters W...

    I'm usually a fan of the Will Robie series but this was not one of his best books. The relationship between Robie and Reel was weird and the criminal characters were just plain stupid, I felt like I could feel my IQ dropping while reading this book, definitely not one I would recommend.

    Audiobook - 11:54 hours - 2 out of 5 stars"End Game" - Will Robie #5, by David Baldacci, is not up to the standard of the earlier Will Robie books, suffering from a wandering plot and less than credible story line. Will's unaided and quick 'disposal' of 17 bad guys in just a few minutes at the beginning of the book (not a spoiler) was so unbelievable that it was surely facetious. The cliché-ridden dialogue is not improved by the narration, parti...

    End GameAs always a good book in a great series. It started out a bit slow for me but as I got into it I started enjoying it more. I wasn't sure how it was going to end and that's the best part. David Baldacci is never a disappointment, his writing is superb.
  • Scott
    Two of my favorite mystery/suspense writers are Lee Child and David Baldacci. There are very few books by either author that I haven’t enjoyed. This is the case with Baldacci’s new book, “End Game” which is his fourth adventure with Will Robie, a secret weapon of the United States government. Robie, along with his partner, Jessica Reel, are two of the most lethal assassins ever created. They are given the toughest assignments against the ...

    I've enjoyed this series and it has been mostly 4 stars. This book happens to be the 5th book in this series. I like the MCs. They play well off of each other. I liked the dialogue. It had humor, it was descriptive, and it didn't feel awkward when depicting the tension between the two MCs. I also like his plots. They are creative and stay in motion. This one felt a little "round and round" at times in their search for the truth, but there were pl...

    End Game is #5 in the Will Robie series by David Baldacci. “Blue Man is missing. Will and Jessica are tasked with finding him and bringing him back safe.” The last thirty pages are very good. But the rest is not DB’s best work. Story meanders. Spends time on the tension between Robie and Reel. Doesn’t seem to be much direction. Yawn 😴 Robie and Reel are starting to sound a lot like King and Maxwell. Baldacci is one of my favorite autho...

    INTENSE.I loved it! (4.5/5*!)
  • Vi MacDonald
    Terrible. Too much money for eBook that’s extremely repetitive, way too much info on Silo/underground bunkers and there’s very little difference between this and a previous Robb Will book. By 56% of story I just wanted it to end and started Skipping pages. Recommend this author take a look at John Grisham’s latest I couldn’t put it down. Really hope this author’s next book is a totally different storyline as this is the last book I’m ...

    See this review and more at www.TheRealBookSpy.com Readers haven’t seen Will Robie, David Baldacci’s fan-favorite CIA assassin, since 2015, when The Guilty hit bookstores. Now, after a two-year wait, Robie returns, and he’s back with a vengeance. Riding in on his Ducati Diavel, carrying a .45 H&K UMP and twin suppressed M11s, Will Robie cruises into Oxford Circus, one of the busiest stations in the London Underground. Previously, the Underg...

    And now I want to know how their story continues!!I really hope I don't have to wait two years again for the next book.
  • Terri Wino
    Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of my favorite David Baldacci characters, but in this book I just wanted to give both of them a swift kick in the ass. Somehow, they both managed to get on my nerves in this book, for different reasons. However, since I won't include spoilers in my review, I'm not going to specify why.There was quite a bit of action in this book, which I enjoyed. There were quite a few over the top moments when credibility just...
  • Barb Martin
    Things got a little ridiculous in David Baldacci's new novel, "End Game."The story takes place in rural Colorado, and the cast of characters includes skinheads, Branch Davidian types and other folks of a "sovereign nation" mind bent.Guns are blazing. Our bad guys are killing people willy nilly. Why then are we supposed to believe that "our" people aren't going to join the ranks of the dearly departed?Baldacci knows how to spin a yarn, so he kept ...
  • Joyce
    A terrific thriller. Reader will not be able to put this book down until the last page.Fascinating characters play out a most interesting story line filled with twists and turns. Keeps the reader guessing and filled with surprises all along the way. A very good read.
  • Robert Knotts
    Excellent story. Loved the humanization of Blue Man during this story as well as Robie and Reel.
  • Judy Collins
    Review to follow.
  • Alan
    The mystery element and the red herrings were well done. The end felt like a let down as it went the cliché route of the big bads explaining their evil plot to our heroes and then of course making the mistake of giving the heroes a "fighting chance" to escape alive with the expected result. The lead in was good though.I listened to the audiobook and Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy do an excellent job covering all of the voices, giving each of them...

    Never took Baldacci for a Breaking Bad fan but overall, it was one of the most enjoyable reads of 2017...
  • Tina Woodbury
    For all of my reviews: www.readingbetweenthepagesblog.wordpr...Will Robie and Jessica Reel are back in another mystery and a race against time to save someone very important to both of them.Robie and Reel have recovered from the wounds they received when we last saw them in The Guilty (Will Robie, #4). They are once again doing what they do best, taking down the enemy. They have not spoken in months and their relationship is strained and as confu...
  • K Saju
    A long wait of two years for the character of Will Robie and Jessica Reel to come together again and wreck havoc on the bad people. As a team they are 10x more efficient and deadly. Good enough book with Will in picture its more on guns and destruction and this book does not let you down in that area. My particular favorite sequence in the book was Jessica's Iraq's fight sequence .. totally was with her feeling the sand myself.Recommended for Bal...
  • Ronie
    I'm a die-hard David Baldacci fan, and I've enjoyed the Will Robie books (Amos Decker is my favorite), but I ended up pretty disappointed with this book. I both read the hardcover and listened to the audio, so the more-than-usual curse words felt over the top. Just too much. And I was disappointed in how quickly Will ended up sleeping with another character and his near-cavalier attitude about it. This felt like a real departure from his stories ...
  • Patrick Clark
    Baldacci is a great storyteller. His vivid description of setting placed the reader right in the scene and pace make it hard to put the book down. End Game takes Robie, and his partner Jessica Reel, to the terrific wide open spaces of rural Colorado where they encounter a dangerous counter-culture. A great book for anyone that likes a page turning thriller.
  • Dee Haddrill
    Another fantastic thriller by David Baldacci that will keep you guessing through to the last page.
  • Greer Andjanetta
    A s0-so mystery story featuring two DB characters who are professional CIA assassins trying to find a missing official in Colorado. Hate groups, neo-nazis and assorted small-town locals both help and hinder them. The book never really develops any real drama and plods along to the inevitable conclusion.
  • Freda Witt
    Love Baldacci, even when they get a little technical. They talk about guns and bullets enough that I should know a little on the subject!
  • Darcy
    Well this one was interesting on so many levels. First off I was surprised that Blueman was missing, of course Jessica and Will would be the ones to figure things out. The second thing that was interesting to me was the dynamic between Will and Jessica, it was strained and off. I wanted them to talk about why, instead both of them avoided it for the most part and then Will did the very stupid thing all guys do. The debacle that everyone fell into...
