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 . . .
THE INNOCENT
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 fourteen-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.

Another great Baldacci Book. Robie is a very likeable and well defined character. Even though he's an assassin, you can sense his human side. The young girl, Julie, while understandably tough, is rather obnoxious and difficult to take sometimes. Several other characters are also well defined and interesting. The plot keeps you listening with many unforeseen twists and turns, but comes together well in the last couple of chapters.

Listened to this on a road trip and it was riveting. It did seem like a large percentage of the answers to the questions that were piling up came in the last chapters, but the loose ends were dealt with in due time.

Will Robie is someone you respect and root for despite his hired assassin occupation. We see multiple facets of him, but never find out why he does what he does. . . Looking forward to reading more in the Will Robie series and other Baldacci books.

The first in the Will Robie series, very similiar to his other characters ( John Puller, and Oliver Stone ), but Baldacci always seems to come with a number of twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing. Narrators do a fantastic job as well.

My first novel by David Baldacci and it was awesome!! I listened to this on audio CD and have to say I sat in my car when arriving at my destination on several occasions to listen a little more. Great story that really keeps you guessing what is going to happen next and wondering how all the pieces fit. It is totally amazing how everything comes together in the end --great authors can do that!! I loved this story!! 10 out of 10 for me.
