Publisher's Summary

Will Robie is an assassin with a mission. But whose side is he on?
Back in DC after successful missions in Edinburgh and Tangier, assassin Will Robie sees his latest assignment, to eliminate a US government employee, go badly wrong. What had she done? Or what did she know? Robie is now a wanted man. But it seems that he’s not the only one on the run.
Young teenager Julie Getty is devastated by the inexplicable murder of her parents in their home. Who wanted them dead and why, is a mystery. But Julie is smart enough to believe that their killer will come after her. Robie and Julie meet when he saves her from an attempt on her life as they are trying to leave town. The police investigating the hit start to take an interest in Robie. He’s particularly attracting the interest of Special Agent Nicole Vance, who believes that the two cases are connected.
Robie finds himself in a dangerous position as he is tasked to investigate a crime at which he was present. Does he need to change sides to save lives - including his own?

Monotonous monotone by narrator Ron McLarty

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The audio book started with "Sound Effects", something I absolutely hate. It is an insult to the narrator, showing his/her voice will not carry the story.I have looked at other reviews of this book. The story line should interest me. But, I gave up after listening to Ron McLarty's voice for 30 mins.I want a refund for my wasted time and money.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing read by Ron McLarty. Nothing from Macmillan Audio Books

What didn’t you like about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance?

Ron McLarty's voice is better suited to the 30 seconds of scary advertisment to the next big horror movie block buster. Ron also sounds like he is a 3 packet per day smoker.Orlagh Cassidy. Only heard her voice for a few seconds. No opinions.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Innocent: Will Robie, Book 1?

Only got 5% into the audiobook, before I gave up. Cut the narrators, and start again.

Any additional comments?

I have also purchased the next book in the series "The Hit". It will not be listened to either. I am now even more annoyed at spending money on thse two audio books.

A very enjoyable book, performed by masters

Not only is this a great story but the performance by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy was superb. A definite valuable asset in my collection. Just get it and start listening.

An easy listen....

...apart from the annoying musak and awful sporadic sound effects. I read/listen to books to utilise my imagination I did not like the intrusive additional noise.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

Don't judge by other reviews!!!! I have thoroughly enjoyed this book from the beginning. Don't want to give anything away so I will just say it keeps you in suspence to the end and couldn't stop listening. It is the first time I have heard an audio book with sound effects, I must say they did make me jump a few times but it is not off putting but adds to the suspence. Go listen and enjoy........

great story

I did love the story, but I feel like it was let down a bit by the performance. They really could have done without yhe cheesy and distracting back up music that failed to create atmosphere. The narrators were ok, but a bit flat. I admit I am easily put off by things like that though, and apart from those points I did enjoy the story

Will Robie is an exciting character.

David Baldacci wrote a good story in this genre. Will Robie is exciting and interesting and I look forward to hearing his further exploits. I am not sure if Ron McLarty has the right voice for this character but I believe he reads well. Orlagh Cassidy's voice is matched to her character much better. Similar to other audiobooks by this company the use of background music to try and heighten the tension and mood should not be necessary and often spoils the performance.
