The Innocent David Baldacci Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
America's best hitman was hired to kill--but when a D.C. government operation goes horribly wrong, he must rescue a teenage runaway and investigate her parents' murders in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.
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 pull the trigger. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and is on the run.
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.

User reviews about this book
Couldn’t stop reading
This book is masterfully written. The plot becomes a bit obvious concerning who the main other killer is but forgivable for how the story is told. Action fans may have a problem with how godly the main character’s skills are but it is evened out by other goings on. The obviousness of the story and the character development is only reason why hold back the fifth star.
That being said, this is one of the better action novels I’ve read in a very long time.

Best Baldacci novel yet!
By El Vato.
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.
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.

Great story line , writing style, and creative implementation of a combination of fact and fiction. I don't want to put your books down when I read them.
Thanks for providing such intrigue and entertainment in such an easily accessible manner.
More Twist and Turns!
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!

Believable characters and events...twists and turns that kept me guessing ! Very good contrast between the 3 female leads; and, I’m ready for more Robie!
