By David Baldacci

When the U.S. government assigns agent, Will Robie a new target, the cold hit man who always hits his target, no questions asked does not fulfill this mission. For the first time in his career he does not kill the target as something doesn’t feel right. Now, his life is on the line and he becomes the target.

When fleeing the scene he becomes involved with a teenage runaway from a foster home. She’s not your ordinary teenager as she is also on the run after her parents have been murdered, and her life is in danger. Against all of his die hard rules, Robie rescues her and can’t walk away. He’s soon convinced that she is at the center of a massive cover up.

For me this humanness and compassion on the part of a known killer gave the book a whole new dimension. The man of steel has emotions and uses them in a wonderful way.

The villain is way too obvious, but it is another fast paced, action tale of espionage and betrayal from one of our favorite and brilliant authors.
