    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 . . .

THE INNOCENT

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 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.

Gary Becker, January 18, 2013 (view all comments by Gary Becker)
I can't believe how captivated I am reading Baldacci's books! Every one of them keeps me on the edge of my seat and continuing to read until I'm out of time.... The Innocent was an interesting twist from the normal cat and mouse game and I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a film one day. Here the hero takes a young girl under his wing of protection until the case of the murdered parents are located. You will not be able to put this book down (nor any of the Baldacci work actually.) I've now purchased a stack of them and are going through them one after a time. Baldacci's writing style is probably #1 in my list of authors and I'm sure you will like reading all of his work as well!
