Bullseye is a short
story that brings two of Baldacci’s bestselling characters
together -- Oliver Stone from Camel Club (Hell’s
Corner) and deep-cover government assassin Will Robie
Innocent). I am familiar with Oliver Stone and the
Camel Club but Robie is new to me. After listening to Bullseye,
I look forward to trying the latest Robie title, The Target.
The Bullseye audio version is two hours long.
Oliver Stone wants to deposit a check at the bank in a Georgetown
Mall. While waiting in line, he notices Will Robie ducking
in at the last minute. Stone recognizes him because Robie
has actually followed Stone in the past. Stone wonders why
Robie is in this bank, and who he is following this time.
Bank robbers walk in and quickly kill Charlie, the security
guard, Stone is called grandpa and slapped upside the head,
and Robie is punched for being a law abiding citizen. The
two are tied up together. They silently size each other up
while observing everything they can, including a tattoo. At
one point, Stone finds his phone and calls a friend, who then
calls a friend in his “club.” That’s just
the beginning. It’s two hours of plotting, escaping
and revenge, Baldacci style. It’s the only way to go.
Having one Baldacci character promises action and intrigue;
having TWO popular characters leads to the ultimate showdown.
So what’s next for Baldacci? Hopefully, Stone and Robie
will meet King and Maxwell in the next short story.
