Will Robie is an assassin with a mission. But whose side is he on?
Back in DC after successful missions in Edinburgh and Tangier, assassin Will Robie sees his latest assignment, to eliminate a US government employee, go badly wrong. What had she done? Or what did she know? Robie is now a wanted man. But it seems that he’s not the only one on the run.
Young teenager Julie Getty is devastated by the inexplicable murder of her parents in their home. Who wanted them dead and why, is a mystery. But Julie is smart enough to believe that their killer will come after her. Robie and Julie meet when he saves her from an attempt on her life as they are trying to leave town. The police investigating the hit start to take an interest in Robie. He’s particularly attracting the interest of Special Agent Nicole Vance, who believes that the two cases are connected.
Robie finds himself in a dangerous position as he is tasked to investigate a crime at which he was present. Does he need to change sides to save lives - including his own?

Not only is this a great story but the performance by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy was superb. A definite valuable asset in my collection. Just get it and start listening.
I particlularly liked the use of different voices and sound effects something many other audio books have not had.
Yes, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat, you never knew whether the bad guys were after the girl or Will
Unfortunately I don't have that opportunity, but I found myself siting in carparks at my desitnations so that I could get to the end of chapter.
Baldacci continues to offer intrique and good story plots to keep reader involved
Robi is central character but his professional blandness is nicely countered with fiesty 14 year old Julie
Good narration by both parties
enjoyed the book immensely although slightly predictable it was still a great listen and worth the download.
