    Will Robie, a veteran assassin for a US Government agency, is a stone-cold hitman who never questions orders, and always finishes his job. However, when Robie is sent to assassinate a target in Washington D.C., his gut feeling forces him to abandon the mission, an unexpected act of rebellion that makes him a target in his own agency.

    Summary Of The Book

    The stoic protagonist, Will Robie, is asked to kill a government employee. However, this erstwhile ruthless assassin finds himself unable to complete the task. After abandoning the hit, he takes an exigent decision to leave town and head to New York. On the bus, he has a chance  to encounter with a teenage girl who has left her foster home and is on the run. Upon discovering that both her parents were murdered, and that the girl’s life might be at risk too, he has no option but to help her.

    However, the more he learns about her, the more he is convinced that she is at the epicentre of a high-profile cover-up, one that might explain the death of her parents. The police, while investigating this hit, start to take keen interest in Robie. Between them and a relentless female investigator who believes that the two cases may be connected, Robie is fighting for his life, and his freedom.

    Throughout the book, Will Robie’s character is highly mercurial. His dispassionate outlook on taking someones life contradicts the surprisingly humane choices he makes in the course of the story. The Innocent boasts of a clever, intricately planned plot that has the classic Baldacci twists and turns.

    Good read.

    Short story. Not a great one. Good for a single read if u r travelling or u r alone for a long time.

    David tries to pack a punch in this one, but falls short of twists that can bind a reader to a book. The story becomes predictable and a bit slow paced in the middle. Although the writer tries to make up at the end. The story has got a nice little humane face.

    Rate: 3.5 or 4/5.

    Very few writers have the ability to keep the reader glued to the book. This book, like any other baldacci book does just that.

    Following a thrilling plot with shocking twists, this book is definetely a must read!
