Description

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.

No Sale Price Can Make This a Worthwhile Purchase

Narration on par with the skills demonstrated at your 14 year olds grade eight drama class...which are the perfect accompaniment to a story that jumps so many sharks, the Fonz himself would be jealous.

Figure it out

The story was one you should pay attention. Very interesting kept my attention. The characters are interesting to figure out who did what who is involved.

A good mix

The extra character development makes this story work much better than some of the other series. #Audible1

Excellent!

David Baldacci is able to combine an exciting sometime violent story with kind, likeable and believable characters. The narrators are excellent and really add to the enjoyment of the story. I found this audiobook better than an action movie.

Awesome Read!

The story is awesome. The theatrics from the performers and the sound effects bring the story more alive then if I just read the book.

Competing with podcast productions?

The addition of background sounds are decent. Their placement makes sense, reinforce themes, and amplify the drama.

The randomly placed music however is intrusive and a waste of production effort IMO. It detracts from the story with it's seemingly arbitrary placement and does nothing to enhance the storytelling, the characters, or the plot. I'm so distracted with the haphazard 'musical' interruptions, I can't finish the book.

Good listen to pass the time

It was a good listen, but don't expect too much. The Narration was the best part of this experience. The Story was abit stagnant at times, the middle of the book doesn't really give you any directions.

Its an ok book. I would probably continue the series, but only if i had a credit to spare, or if it was on discount or free

Stellar

They should leave out the music and sound effects .They were distracting and not needed.They cheapened the experience of listening to the novel.

Solid!

Thoroughly enjoyable novel, fairly good performance, would have preferred the ladies voice to be different based on the characters.
Overall solid storyline.

Story Is OK. Performance, Not So Much.

No review this time. Just some quick notes.

The novel starts slowly. It takes awhile for the plot to grab your interest. But once it does, the ride is good fun.

The concluding tying up of loose ends is hackish. Build the conclusions into the plot. Don't wait for the last few chapters and then have the characters amaze each other with descriptions of how each plot line was resolved. At best, this is evidence of a lazy writer. At worst, an incompetent one. Baldacci is fully competent. He can do much better.

Narration is uneven. Female voices, in particular, seem miscast. An FBI agent with such a strong, though intermittent, Brooklyn accent?

Audio production is awful. The sound effects and music are distracting, making it impossible to lose yourself in the story. This audiobook would work better with less: fewer narrators (McLarty could handle it better alone), fewer sound effects, less music. It might be good for Baldacci to remember: One reason many of us prefer books to, say, movies, is that books allow our imaginations to "fill in the blanks." The sound of a stereotypical bullet adds little; and has a cost.

Conclusion? Decent escapist fiction. But probably a story better READ. Buy the book. Skip this audio.

Shockingly Bad for Baldacci

Having read or listened to over 15 other Baldacci novels (and LOVED them all) I was sorry I didn't read the negative reviews on this one.

I DETEST the music and sound effects that are creeping in to many recordings lately. The music and effects included in this one was over the top and didn't enhance the experience for me at all. It is extremely annoying and distracting.

Nevertheless, when the story is phenomenal, I grit my teeth and ignore the sappy music or gun shot noise. The plot here is so far fetched I couldn't decide which was more painful.

It's hard for me to believe that this book is not a first effort by an author who may or may not get published one day. Does Baldacci now have a stable of writers cranking out books for him like James Patterson?

Disliked all the Sound Effects.

What did you like best about this story?

Good story with lots of turns that kept you away from the ending.

Any additional comments?

I just didn't like all the sound effects, didn't feel they added anything to the story.

Worst performance I've heard

I generally don't leave reviews but I was compelled to review this performance.... The sound effects are very distracting and the added female voice sounds spliced in and computer generated (wrecked the story for me listening to her). The guys voice was only marginally better..... Over all decent story but the performance was so bad I didn't finish this book, only the second book I didn't finish ever.

A Painful Listen

This is dramatized! Sound effects throughout. Annoying. Very shallow story. This is the first audio book in 11 years I couldn't finish. Refund please.

Fun book-sound effects, music, two voices annoying

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Drop the sound effects, music, and two voices! I found it very annoying. I regret downloading this book before any reviews were posted. I won't make that mistake again.

How could the performance have been better?

Drop the sound effects, music, and two voices. I like Ron McLarty reading (only).

"Drop The Sound Effects"

Another very good novel from DB but perhaps a bit too long (3.5 stars)! And I beg of you please drop the sound effects it drove me crazy, let me use my imagination.

I Hope There's a Sequel!!

If you like action and suspense, then you will like " The Innocent". Baldacci has created a character called Robie who is a hitman. He is sent out on assignment that he can not complete. Robie figures out that he was set up. And now is on the run. Robie encounters a 14yr old girl named Julie. Julie see's her parents shoot and killed. And now is running for her life. There paths cross on a bus. Julie is a sassy, street smart girl. And Robie is rough around the edges with a good heart. And takes Julie under his wing. And the adventure begins. I enjoyed both characters a lot. I hope Baldacci writes another book with Robie and Julie. It would be interesting to see what Julie grows up to be? And what Robie's next assignment would be? Baldacci has done it again, and wrote another great book.

The softest hitman I can remember.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I'm almost halfway through but since I'm not going to finish here's a quick review. It doesn't make sense. With the kind of man the government assassin is supposed to be, someone that avoids personal/emotional involvement, he goes out of his way the entire time, for this 14 year old girl (up to chapter 46 anyway). High tech spy devices used to track a kid? Treating the kid as if she's an adult, most of the time. The FBI agents have corny sophomoric dialog. Lots of the dialog seems rushed. I mean, as if to abbreviate some how. You could imagine this being an abridged version.

What could David Baldacci have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

More interesting supporting character(s). This is my first David Baldacci book and I like several things about the protagonist but it's like he's trying to be two different people.

What three words best describe Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ???s performance?

Ron McLarty was really good but not great. He was FANTASTIC in Salem's Lot. Orlagh Cassidy sounds as if much or all of these recordings were done apart from the other reader and then the dialog was spliced together. Often times the tones and inflection, that you expect, isn't there.

Was The Innocent worth the listening time?

No. I didn't make it past chapter 46.
