Book Description

9 Oct 2012
An assassin with a mission. But whose side is he on? This is another action-packed thriller from one of the world's most popular writers. 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 were 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?

Review

"Forget Fifty Shades of Grey--the page-turner of the season is The Innocent by David Baldacci...The reader wants for nothing: there are car chases and shootouts, snipers and moles, safe houses and digestible bio-transmitters...The tale starts at a blistering rate and accelerates through 100 short action-packed chapters...this is Baldacci back at his best."-- The Times (London) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tiresome nonsense 16 Dec 2012
By RoverP
Format:Paperback
Yes, it's a fast paced action thriller but the plot is so contrived and implausible and the characters are nearly all so stereotyped and unlikeable that well before half way through I was getting bored with it.

It contains so much of what is worst in American crime / thriller writing. The central character, Secret Agent Will Robie is depicted as an all American hero who almost single handedly defeats a bizarre terrorist plot. What a guy! Sure, he gets some help from a female FBI agent who also seems willing to put her own and other people's lives at risk, so, hey, she's cool too! They "gun" engines, do donut turns, run red lights etc and when they face gunfire from well trained and well equipped adversaries they are seemingly protected by a magical shield whilst death and destruction explodearound them. You get the picture.

And despite a bus full of passengers being blown up and numerous other murders being committed it seems that the FBI agent is the only person officially on the case. Nonsense, of course but it creates the vacuum of reality which allows Baldacci to hype up his hero.

No doubt this storyline would make for a half decent action movie but for me it just doesn't work as a book. It is one shallow chapter of contrived action after another and it simply gets tiresome.

2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed!! 18 May 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Firstly, just let me say that I love the works of David Baldacci, until this. I've waited eagerly for the lastest offering and was sorely disappointed. It was as if this book had been written by someone else. Badly expressed, laboured (I felt as if I was being talked down to a lot of the time) and just not Baldacci. I know from other reviews that it has been raved about - sorry, not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Murders and Innocent Bystanders 28 April 2012
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David Baldacci has written a superb action packed thriller. Will Robie is employed by a US government agency as a hit-killer. He has killed many with ruthless meticulous military style preparation on the orders of his superiors who perceive threats to US on a global basis or merely see people or situations as problems. A muscular rock-solid intelligent assassin turning 40,he had recently killed a heroin supplier (Rivera) in Edinburgh along with his bodyguards intent on raising finances to plan a military coup in Mexico, a potential threat to America. His next mission was the killing of Saudi Prince Talal in Tangier who had abducted and murdered US servicemen and was a threat to the West. He returns to Washington.

No mission for 3 months until instructed to kill a woman in her 30's with 2 children. Robie finds she is a government agent and told she is part of a terrorist organisation. After breaking into her apartment he finds her in bed with her 3 year old son. Conscience kicks in and despite the angry insistence of his handler to kill them both, Robie cannot. The situation is resolved when a single shot from a long range sniper kills both. Robie realises he is probably the next target and puts plan B into action and makes a run for it.

Meanwhile, we are introduced to a 14 year old smart and intelligent precocious 14 year old Julie Getty, in and out of foster care because of her parents' drug problems from which they are trying to recover. Julie loves her parents, escapes from the current negligent foster carers and heads back home. Unfortunately, she enounters an argument between a man and her father. Her parents are both shot dead. Julie witnesses the killer and realises she is in danger and needs to escape and goes on the run.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of "The innocent". 26 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not one of Baldacci's best offerings - the plot takes a sharp detour towards the end; not what you could call a twist, but more of a change in direction. Not sure that I'll be keen to read any sequels...

2.0 out of 5 stars Bond+Rambo not Le Carre 24 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast moving and totally implausible, more like Bond (with some Rambo) than Le Carre. Could be an exciting read if one were able to suspend disbelief, but I didn't manage to.
