The Innocent by David Baldacci Book Summary

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.

The Innocent (David Baldacci) Book Reviews

Fast pacedGreat story from many angles. Lots of twists and turns. Not predictable. Overall, a really enthralling read..Score: 5/5

Fantastic!Loved this book! Excellent story line that just gets better chapter by chapter with a great ending!.Score: 5/5

Non-StopThis is the best action, suspense, mystery type book I've read in I don't know when. I'm not well-educated on the ins and outs of being a government hit man, governments or government agencies, but it was all very believable to me. Also, it has so many layers and twists. Some authors would have made the story much simpler. When I began to think the plot was winding down, a whole new piece would enter. Can't wait to find out what happens to Robie next..Score: 5/5

I’m sad.I miss David Baldacci. Like Robert Ludlum, someone has clearly bought the Baldacci name..Score: 2/5

Kept me engrossed the whole timeI loved this book and could not put it down. The twists and turns in the storyline are great. Loved the characters. Will Robie is a decent guy and I really felt bad for the way he has chosen to live his life on one side but on the other he makes a difference every day he shows up for work. Love Julie’s character and her spunk reminds me of a friend of mine (also named Julie) and even super agent Vance. Yes, there are some things unlikely in the book but for me the pieces fit together and worked. I was completely engrossed in the book and that ultimately that’s what makes me give a book 5 stars..Score: 5/5

SuperbThe characters were as complex as the storyline. Yet "Innocent" was an easy read. I was hooked from page one. I didn't think I would like a character more than Oliver Stone, but Baldacci has outdone himself. I actually just reread this novel in preparation for "the Hit." I almost never read a book more than once. "Outstanding and thought provoking".Score: 5/5

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!.Score: 5/5

Another book by a man who thinks women are used to further the storyline of menI get tired of the whole pointless love interest that does nothing to further the plot and has a sex scene/romance in it for no reason. This book has quite a few main characters who are underdeveloped and poorly written. I enjoyed the plot for the first half of the book, but lost interest by the end..Score: 1/5

Worth a read...Second or third Baldacci book I've read, first in this series...I'm a big Connelly/Silva fan, so I love this genre...overall, a worthwhile read, kept my interest and a good buildup to what was a fairly predictable end...the one thing that really bothered me was, without spoiling anything, I am not sure what 14 year olds Baldacci has spent time with, but as a middle school teacher, I can promise you that no 14 year old speaks in the dialogue this one did, even the smartest, most precocious ones! Other than that mild annoyance, I would recommend it, and I'm starting the second one in the series soon..Score: 4/5

Floyd4622Amazing read! There were a couple of times I had to stop reading for a while. It was just so intense with the details of torture of Mercy I had to take a break. The other was pitting the sisters against each other. I have read nearly all The author’s books. A great talent for building his characters..Score: 5/5

Couldn’t stop readingThis 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..Score: 4/5
