Publisher's 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 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.

Narration is horrible!

It is insulting to an adult to add cheesy sound effects like gun shots, tires squealing, sirens, etc. It reminded me of a child's book with the buttons down the side- irritating. The two narrators feel disconnected- like they were recorded separate and spliced together. Luckily I've been with Audible a couple of years and know that this is not normal. I got a refund. I also don't think I'm a Baldacci fan. This was the first book by him I've tried. It was only so so- not good.

My First Balducci

Would you consider the audio edition of The Innocent to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio version. It brings life to the story. I even wanted to by the hardcopy to read along but I dont have time for that. I listen during work and gardening. It makes time pass smoothly. The sound effects and characters make it more interesting and draws me in. I saw the poster ad for this book on the DC Metro and I immediately downloaded it. Also.... I live in DC so I particularly enjoyed the name dropping of the cities and companys throughout the metro area. I hope he's reading this review with a smile!!! # thumbsup!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes....not wanting to miss a single sentence.I needed complete silence around me. So I used headphones :-)

Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

Super Agent Vance LOL

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me speak outloud during some gripping moments
