America has enemies. The police, the FBI, the military can't always stop them. That's when they call him...Will Robie is a U.S. government freelance hit man. He works on the dark side. He's an expert at what he does, a professional, the best in the business. Robie is given a target--a man who has been designated as a threat to America, but whose guilt can't be proven in the court of law--and eliminates him with ease. During his getaway, however, Robie encounters another potentially deadly situation--and winds up saving a young teenager. He learns that she is a runaway from a private facility. The location of her parents is unknown. Robie returns her to the police, but he's worried and decides to keep tabs on her. But he also has to be careful because the police are investigating the hit that he performed. A tenacious female investigator in particular is taking a special interest in him, and she believes the two cases are connected. As Robie discovers more of the girl's past, he realizes that there is more here than meets the eye: the girl is at the center of a vast cover-up that may have to do with the disappearance of her parents and stretch to unthinkable levels of power. For the first time, Robie may have to leave the shadows in order to save this girl's life...and perhaps his own, as well.

David Baldacci's "Will Robie " series are just another one of my favorite book, There are 5 books and i love them all.

Another great Baldacci Book. Robie is a very likeable and well defined character. Even though he's an assassin, you can sense his human side. The young girl, Julie, while understandably tough, is rather obnoxious and difficult to take sometimes. Several other characters are also well defined and interesting. The plot keeps you listening with many unforeseen twists and turns, but comes together well in the last couple of chapters.

Listened to this on a road trip and it was riveting. It did seem like a large percentage of the answers to the questions that were piling up came in the last chapters, but the loose ends were dealt with in due time.

Will Robie is someone you respect and root for despite his hired assassin occupation. We see multiple facets of him, but never find out why he does what he does. . . Looking forward to reading more in the Will Robie series and other Baldacci books.

The first in the Will Robie series, very similiar to his other characters ( John Puller, and Oliver Stone ), but Baldacci always seems to come with a number of twists and turns that keeps the reader guessing. Narrators do a fantastic job as well.

My first novel by David Baldacci and it was awesome!! I listened to this on audio CD and have to say I sat in my car when arriving at my destination on several occasions to listen a little more. Great story that really keeps you guessing what is going to happen next and wondering how all the pieces fit. It is totally amazing how everything comes together in the end --great authors can do that!! I loved this story!! 10 out of 10 for me.
