    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 disappointed you about The Innocent?

    I used to love Baldacci, but he seems to have peaked with his earlier stories. With each recent Baldacci release the stories get increasingly contrived and the scenes more and more implausible. This one is the worst. I keep listening to the end of each, hoping they will somehow get better, but they never do. The story isn't complex, it's just dumb. Don't waste your credit, much better stuff out there.


    Did Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The performers did a great job... the best they could with such awful material.

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Overall

    This is my first review, and is written only to warn my fellow listeners. As a long time reader of fiction, I have become accustomed to accepting sometime implausible circumstances or events, but this work stretches the idea beyond limits. Characters are poorly (or implausibly) developed. The authors have a love of $3 words –too bad they often misuse (and sometimes overuse) them. At times they seem to want to show off their knowledge of the arcane. Alternately their descriptions often reveal little familiarity with locations, circumstances or human nature. Why I continued on trudge on to the end I can only attribute to a combination of hopefulness and strange curiosity –akin to the attraction to traffic accidents. Not surprisingly no payoff ever came. The ending was muddled (at best) leaving more loose ends than a pair of cutoff jean shorts. Save yourself.

    At 34, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all...his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

    This is the first audiobook I could not finish. The story, the descriptions, everything left me asking why I was wasting my time.
