The Will Robie series by David Baldacci includes some of the author’s best military thriller and suspense novels, featuring Will Robbie, a ruthless and ice-cold assassin who is called in by the government when things get dire.
The first book in the series was published in 2012 with the title The Innocent, which proved to bet yet another great installment in the new assassin thriller subgenre, which includes some great characters like the Nowhere Man, the Gray Man, Victor the Assassin, Scot Harvath, and so many more.
If you love this genre of books, you will thoroughly enjoy reading the Will Robie books in order of publication, which in this case happens to be the same with their order of reading/chronological order.

America has its fair share of enemies, which is natural with such a powerful country. But with many enemies comes a serious danger. When the police, military or other official governments can’t contain the threats, then there is a last bastion of hope. The last person who could fix what others can not: Will Robie, stone-cold assassin who always gets his target and never questions his orders.
Will Robbie is one of the top operatives of a secret clandestine US agency. Usually, Will doesn’t question his orders. But there are times when the orders don’t make much sense. Like in The Innocent, when he is tasked with eliminating a Washington DC female government employee, or in The Hit, when he is after a fellow assassin, when Will realizes that things aren’t as simple as his bosses claim.
End Game, so far the latest in the David Baldacci Will Robbie books, departs slightly from the usual assassin-style novel and enters the detective mystery genre. Will is highly surprised when he is asked to take Jessica, another assassin (whom we also met in The Hit), and search for their boss, Blue Man, who simply disappeared while away on his yearly holiday. As Will soon realizes, it turns out that killing someone is very, very different from getting to the truth of a case and trying to save a life.
The Will Robie books are highly addictive, and since there are only a handful of books published so far, reading them in order will be a quick and fun exercise.
