Description

Will Robie is an assassin with a mission. But whose side is he on?

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 are 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?

Almost a DNF for me

I have listened to a lot of Baldacci's books and I really like them, so I thought this one would be good. Well...I was disappointed.
The Innocent starts off good and has me hooked for the first few chapters then the story gets confusing. From the eight chapter to up to the near the end there is no story. It is the same information being repeated over and over and over again. Robie works for a super secret agency with a lot of power, or so you're suppose to believe but obvious and simple detective investigating techniques weren't even used. Then...., at the very end, Robie obtains all the answers in one paragraph. I swear I was reading a murder she wrote novel but Robie was inserted as the main character. It's my best guess that Balducci had a deadline to met and this book was the end result.
I don't know if this new character is supposed to be his answer to Jack Reacher, but it really misses the mark. The writing was good, but the plot was so contrived. I got dizzy from rolling my eyes so much. The hero and his little "innocent" made many leaps in their conclusions from very limited information. bleh

Ron McLarty, Orlagh Cassidy and the sounds effects nearly drove me crazy. It sounded like a B grade movie not an audio book.

Monotonous monotone by narrator Ron McLarty

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The audio book started with "Sound Effects", something I absolutely hate. It is an insult to the narrator, showing his/her voice will not carry the story.I have looked at other reviews of this book. The story line should interest me. But, I gave up after listening to Ron McLarty's voice for 30 mins.I want a refund for my wasted time and money.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing read by Ron McLarty. Nothing from Macmillan Audio Books

What didn’t you like about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance?

Ron McLarty's voice is better suited to the 30 seconds of scary advertisment to the next big horror movie block buster. Ron also sounds like he is a 3 packet per day smoker.Orlagh Cassidy. Only heard her voice for a few seconds. No opinions.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Innocent: Will Robie, Book 1?

Only got 5% into the audiobook, before I gave up. Cut the narrators, and start again.

Any additional comments?

I have also purchased the next book in the series "The Hit". It will not be listened to either. I am now even more annoyed at spending money on thse two audio books.

Captivating tale

What did you love best about The Innocent?

I particlularly liked the use of different voices and sound effects something many other audio books have not had.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat, you never knew whether the bad guys were after the girl or Will

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unfortunately I don't have that opportunity, but I found myself siting in carparks at my desitnations so that I could get to the end of chapter.

Not only is this a great story but the performance by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy was superb. A definite valuable asset in my collection. Just get it and start listening.

good listen

What did you love best about The Innocent?

Baldacci continues to offer intrique and good story plots to keep reader involved

Who was your favorite character and why?

Robi is central character but his professional blandness is nicely countered with fiesty 14 year old Julie

What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good narration by both parties

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

enjoyed the book immensely although slightly predictable it was still a great listen and worth the download.

A Thriller Through & Through!

A fantastic book with a complex yet interesting storyline... Memorable characters especially Julie Getty who is feisty, intelligent, street-smart and captivating... The narrators Ron McLarty & Orlagh Cassidy always bring the story to life! Kudos the McLarty & Cassidy duo!!!!

Sounds effects add nothing

Any additional comments?

Personally I enjoy a book being read and using my own imagination for sounds effects and such like. The fact that these were added in this audio book, together with it being read by two people (male and female) made it seem more like a recorded stage production than an audiobook. Listened to the first bit, and stopped. Am going to buy the paperback second hand from the local charity shop. While this type of production might suit some, it did not for me. So based on this I would not suggest this book, but as I said, that is me.

he had me from minute one

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

looked for something new after Bosch and Reacher and here it is.Robie is the same cool type and makes it fun to listen.
