None of the characters did stupid things. None of the women were rude or hated men. It was refreshing to have characters the reader could root for and care about.
Actually none. This is the first book in memory where I wasn't saying, "oh come on...!" Brilliantly plotted, page turner, nice characterization.
Both didn't over act. It flowed nicely.
Relief. High Five. At last. I kept looking to see how many books David had written and smiling.
I've begun on the Camel Club..I do hope my subscription keeps up or David does.
PLOT: CIA Hitman is about to make a "kill' when he changes his mind seconds later he is the the TARGET~
Robie is one of the BEST CIA hitmen ~on his latest job he finds *PREY* is a mother living in poverty~ every bit of info he has been given is WRONG. After discovering a small child and infant with her Robie backs off the kill and a "back up" sniper kills them instead now Robie is NOW the target. As he makes a brilliant escape he comes across a teenage runaway. When the bus they are both riding on goes up in flames in a explosion both Robie and the teenage girl are now on the run *together*~ the girl is more than a run way she witnessed her parents murdered. AS Robie and the girl who is both intelligent and a computer savy. they find the path of several muders are part of the same dark plan. ..ending with a mysterious ARAB who has his own agenda to kill the President. This a very good audiobook. The characters are both entertaining and build as they move along. The Reader was very good and over all this was a long audio but held up and did not drag at all. Lots of twits and turns and holds the intestest. Baldacci is a very interesting author who also a lawyer who also blends in some legal issues with black ops in his latest thriller I would give this 4 out of 5 for very good audio and reader and over all story.
I might if it were produced as an audio book, not bad theatre.
By trying to act. The sound effects and music were the most detracting part.
Audio books shoul dbe just that. An opportunity to listen as a form of reading.
Seriously hated the sound effects....this is my first book by this author and I really didn't like it at all!
Me pareció una historia maravillosa, los sonidos que ambientan sin olvidar la representación de Cassidy y McLarty EXCEPCIONAL
Claro que Judy...si todos los teen fueran asi de avidos,,,
I LOVE THEMMMM
CRY, AND A LOT OF ANXIETY....
This was not a typical GI Joe, Navy Seal, Super Hero Gorilla. The introduction of the young side-kick made the character Human.
Maybe not on the edge but certainly well planted. The uncertainty of the characters next move did this.
The male, female voices makes the story esier to follow
Need better inflection in the female voice
If I had the time, yes
Good entertainment for the money
I actually didn't figure it out until just before it was reveiled....definitaly not by the book figure it out crime sceen.
4 out of 5
No way I figured it out ahead of the explanation.
I always like this reader. The sound effects were just distracting.
Finding out the father. Don't want to give anything away.
Please leave out the sounds effects in future books.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
The is the first of a series. I made the mistake of reading the second one first (The Hit). I liked it a great deal. The second book has a number of references to book one. When I finished book two, I researched and found “The Innocent.” In this novel, we are introduced to Will Robie, Juile and Nikki Vance. Robie is a contract killer for the CIA, Vance a FBI special agent and Julie a 14 year-old tough girl. So the deal is, people get shot, Julie’s parents are killed as part of a plot for who knows what reason and then the hunt for the truth begins.
McLarity and Cassidy do a good job narrating this book – they also do the second as well. Baldacci add charters depth layer by layer. There are a few technical facts in the book that defy physics, such as bullets do not gain momentum after they are shot as he suggests; but I can’t fault Baldacci or his editors for not getting a passing grade in physics.
The story appeals to those who like thrillers with a little tech and government thrown in for seasoning. There are many unconnected bits throughout the story and Baldacci manages to connect most of them. It not just about the mystery, it is about how the characters grow and how they adapt that makes this listen interesting. You’ll get hooked quickly. I give the “The Innocent” and the next in the Robie series “The Hit” a big thumbs up.
