Book after book, I am more and more disapppointed by M.Baldacci. Uncredible story, boring characters, no suspens at all. It happens nothing during 2/3 of the book, the 3 so called heroes meet at lot of people and got no clue. From the beginning, you understand that the events rely to one of the first murders and most of it, it is evident that the woman Robie starts to fall in love with will be a traitor at the end. I buy Baldacci book every time there is nothing else to buy on the market and I get always the same feeling

I can picture this story as a blockbuster. The Innocent is one of the best Baldacci story I have read for a while. He showed his mastery again in scene-setting and did a great job with visual imagination. The role of Robie in all his interactions and the other characters in the novel show characterization came out well. The character of Robie reminds me of Gavin in the thriller Triple Agent, Double Cross, who like Robie, is in great shape but equally rugged and soft inside. Complicated though Robie is, his purpose is good. And since he is someone crosses the paths of evil people, the circumstances he finds himself in make him the hero he cannot shy away from becoming in order to survive and stop the bad guys. In short, The Innocent is a story to read.
