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 hit man who never questions orders and always nails his target. But Will Robie may have just made the first, and last, mistake of his career.
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.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Narrators Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy team up to bring Baldacci's latest thriller to life in this enjoyable audio edition. Forty-year-old Will Robie is a top government assassin who for years has carried out his hits with a cool, do-the-job-don't-think precision. But that all changes when Robie refuses to kill an assigned target. It's a decision that puts him on the run and his life in danger. Meanwhile, Julie Getty, a 14-year-old girl who witnessed the murder of her parents, is also running for her life. These wildly different individuals must come together and determine who is out to kill them and why. Of the two readers, McLarty does most of the heavy lifting, providing narration and voicing all the male characters. His slightly gruff, world-weary delivery perfectly suits both Robie and the tone of the novel. Cassidy performs all female dialogue: her reading is clear, and she ably differentiates multiple characters with subtle but effective characterizations. A Grand Central hardcover. (Apr.)
