The Innocent: A Novel

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....

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.

    Iam a new Audible member. I love the selection of books. Its easier than strolling around a library. I find my self chosing books and catagories that I never thought of.

    Story
    "My First Balducci"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Innocent to be better than the print version?

    I prefer the audio version. It brings life to the story. I even wanted to by the hardcopy to read along but I dont have time for that. I listen during work and gardening. It makes time pass smoothly. The sound effects and characters make it more interesting and draws me in. I saw the poster ad for this book on the DC Metro and I immediately downloaded it. Also.... I live in DC so I particularly enjoyed the name dropping of the cities and companys throughout the metro area. I hope he's reading this review with a smile!!! # thumbsup!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes....not wanting to miss a single sentence.I needed complete silence around me. So I used headphones :-)


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

    Super Agent Vance LOL


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me speak outloud during some gripping moments

    Any additional comments?

    Ron McLarty is an exellent reader and Baldacci continues to crank out novels that are still entertaining. This had an interesting plot with some good twists and turns which made for an intersesting listen.
