Publisher's Summary

America has enemies - ruthless people that the police, the FBI, even the military can't stop. That's when the U.S. government calls on Will Robie, a stone-cold hitman who never questions orders and always nails his target.

But 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 - her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. He needs to help her.

Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he's convinced she is at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power. Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save this girl's life... and perhaps his own.

    Pretty much junk. Entertaining, I suppose. It could have been a short story easy enough.

    "Good stuff"

    This was my first listen for this
    Author. I was pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed the narration. I liked that it had been augmented with some sound effects and also separate narration for the female portrayals.

    Some of the storyline felt a little predictable but the overall plot was original. Will definitely check out the next title in this series

    "Great book"

    As always David Baldacci knows how to tell a story. The characters are compelling and consistent. I've read other books he had written and though some characters are similar they have their own personality and story that always draws you in and entertains.

    Story
    "Good read...narrator for teen was very obnoxious"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The teenage character was obnoxious and pushy. I felt that she could have had less of a role in the plots.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Innocent: A Novel?

    The multiple story lines is good.. Easy to follow.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    The main character Will is my favorite. The teenager Julie made me want to stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This is probably my 200th audio book and my first review because the teen character was so annoying in the story!
