    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    What did you like best about The Innocent? What did you like least?

    Narration good, but story implausible.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The music and sound effects are distracting and annoying. Why is this becoming a trend? Do audible listeners really find this adds to their listening pleasure? You need to start indicating on the order page whether a book includes this feature so I can steer clear in the future.

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Any additional comments?

    The story is great, but the dialogue is so stilted that even the excellent reading of Lou Diamond Phillips can't rescue it. The problem is that the characters don't ever use contractions when they talk, and as we know, that just isn't how people speak to each other. This isn't so noticeable when reading because we tend to contract in our heads, but with spoken word it just becomes stilted and silly to hear these rough and tumble characters speaking with such fomality -- even in the most crisis-ridden moments.
