Description

America has enemies—ruthless people that the police, the FBI, and even the military can't stop. That's when the US government calls on Will Robie, a stone-cold hit man who never questions orders and always nails his target. But Will Robie may have just made the first—and last—mistake of his career... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, DC. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: he refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people. Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a fourteen-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway—her parents were murdered, and her own life is in danger. Against all of his professional habits, Robie rescues her and finds he can't walk away. He needs to help her. Even worse, the more Robie learns about the girl, the more he's convinced she's at the center of a vast cover-up, one that may explain her parents' deaths and stretch to unimaginable levels of power. Now, Robie may have to step out of the shadows in order to save the girl's life—and perhaps his own.

Professional reviews

"With a musical score supporting moments of tension, guns firing in the background, doors slamming, and car engines roaring, this audiobook comes alive as the protagonists race to unravel a conspiracy that reaches into the White House. Initially, some of the dialogue between narrators Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy sounds dubbed and mechanical, but as the story progresses, the delivery becomes more engaging. While some listeners may not appreciate this enhanced aural experience, the sound effects and multiple narrators certainly provide a more dramatic format. M.L.R. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
