Another enjoyable page-turner by Baldacci.

Among the best things this author does is write fun thrillers with a lot of local appeal. Living in the greater Washington DC area, many of his settings are familiar to me - things I see or drive by regularly. Couple that with his generally loveable, if misunderstood, heroes and their foibles, and I am usually hooked.

The Innocent was no exception - tough guy, Will Robie, is a government assassin and very good at what he does. He finds himself in the middle of a seriously bad situation, and not sure who to trust, while on the job. He somewhat reluctantly teams with a young girl and an attractive FBI agent... sexual tension, shoot outs, awkward moments as he finds himself unexpectedly protective of the teenage girl, combined with a slowly unfolding mystery with all kinds of political and international intrigue. All told, a fun read.

I personally like The Camel Club series - particularly the first couple books - better than anything else I've read by Baldacci. But this was not bad.
