The Innocent

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 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.

The Innocent3 star

Much too predictable and the writing had a cadence like a Dragnet episode. Because I like Baldacci I read on, expecting the book to get better but it never did. 35


The Innocent5 star

Grabbed me from chapter one and took me late into the night and one though the next day until I finished it. I just had to know what was going to happen next. The author has continued to write in a captivating style; one that keeps me wanting more. I have read many of his books and will continue to do so. 55

More Twist and Turns!5 star

True to his writing, another “can’t put it down” book! I had stopped reading a few years back and seriously wanted to bring that back into my life. This guy was in my top 5 favs for intriguing excitement! It was no mistake, I’m back! Can’t wait to read the next one in this series. And I love that he does such a great job of building the character to such a level, you feel like you know him personally! 55

The Innocent5 star

Though all Baldacci's books are compelling, this one reaches another level. One of the best books I've read in a long, long time. 55


The Innocent1 star

Convoluted, awkward, forced plot and shallow character development. Coincidences and improbabilities torque the narrative, which is not the best course for an action novel. If I wanted that, I'd read science fiction. By far not the author's best work. 15


The Innocent5 star

This book was awesome!!! David Baldacchi is an incredible spy thriller writer.. The best I have ever read.. Lots of research done and not a lot of fill in with over-descriptions, like so many other writers....You can't put it down!!! 55

Hope the characters continue, really enjoyed. 55

Good, not great.4 star

This was my first Baldacci book and I enjoyed it but I never got really excited reading it. Nice pacing and interesting characters yet I never really cared all that much who lived or died......including the main characters. The book must have been pretty good because I just finished it and it is now 1:43 A.M. Ugh! I have to get up at 6:10 A.M. or work. Sweet dreams! 45


Great read!5 star
