During this past week I turned the pages of The Innocent by David Baldacci. This fast-paced story kept my interest during the entire story. The unexpected twists were welcome, making the story unpredictable. Will Robie is a character with flaws and, although he is a trained killer, did have me rooting for him. My support for him began when he refused to carry out a kill on a woman he senses is innocent; and then rescues a teenager from a certain death. The twists and turns in the novel do not stop right until the end. I enjoyed this story and have the next one featuring this character on my book list.
The following is a little teaser introducing you to a situation the main character finds himself in:
“All intruders found would be executed. It was just that sort of place.
Robie turned over on his back, his face to the ceiling.
Three days, or seventy-two hours to go.
It seemed his entire existence was one uninterrupted countdown.” (p.22)
Do you enjoy reading fast-paced action stories?
