"Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous." -- Exodus 23:7 (NKJV)

I enjoyed this thriller by David Baldacci. He manages to add nuances to the usual clichés in the genre to craft a different kind of story where a government assassin finds himself facing ethical and emotional issues that he doesn't expect. While it's hardly a deep-character-development novel, Baldacci succeeds in making his characters interesting and attractive enough to keep you turning the pages.

While all thrillers are a bit near the top, if not over it, I found that this one contained elements that made it seem more realistic at times than most of the genre. That was due to careful plotting that I admired while reading the book . . . and even more after finishing it.

I also liked the way the plot twists were designed to reveal new clues concerning what is really going on.

If you've liked any earlier David Baldacci books, I think you'll like this one.

The book begins by establishing the solitary work of Will Robie in getting rid of the bad guys under difficult circumstances. After you are well into that, he comes to a hit that surprises him . . . and leads to some unexpected events. In the course of those events, he meets a runaway girl who attracts his protective instincts. In a role reversal, he ends up trying to look out for her while taking care of his own precarious business. It makes for some amusing scenes and sequences that humanize the thriller and increase its appeal.

Enjoy!

This book by Baldacci is one of the best he's ever written. It grabs you from the first page and continues to the last page. With so many twists and turns, it becomes almost impossibe to stop reading for a minute. Highly recommended and as good, if not better, than The Camel Club.

This is the first of David Baldacci's books I have read. I like both his writing style and the development of his characters. As I have not yet completed the book, I will reserve judgment on whether the ending meets my expectations, but anticipate it will be as unpredictable as the story itself.
Will Robie may have just made the first — and last — mistake of his career.
It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie refuses to kill his target, and then becomes a target himself. His protection of a teenage girl, who is a run-away from a foster home and whose parents have been murdered are linked to the murder of several people. With the assistance of a DCIS detective, whose life is also at risk through association, they not only try to make some sense of the evidence, but also protect the life of the girl.

Ever since Absolute Power it seems as though Baldacci writes for the big screen. All the way through The Innocent it was if the chapters were scene blocks for a motion picture. By no means am I suggesting that it isn't entertaining as a book because it absolutely is. The plot went deeper than anticipated, the action was more visceral than expected and the characters worthy of connecting with (except some of their interactions were a bit sugary). He is the king of the vanilla-thrilla and I applaud his ascension to that throne, still, I believe he is going shock us all in a future effort where the thrills will be less formulaic and the originality will impress.

Loved it!! Great read! Keeps you guessing all thru it. Liked how he was protecting the teenager and the attitude she threw back at him. She was tough but innocent.

Card board characters, predictible "action", and an absence of plot all go into making a book that is started and never really completed. Definitely not a page turned and definitely worse than some of Baldacci' earlier work. Stay clear.
