America has enemies – ruthless people that the police, the FBI, even the military can’t stop. That’s when the U.S. government calls on Will Robie, a stone cold hitman 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, D.C. 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 is 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 this girl’s life… and perhaps his own.

David Baldacci is a go to author for me, I know I will like his books. This book was a fast read for me and a good start to 2021.I liked how this came full circle, I felt like everything was explained at the end in a way that answered all my questions. I thought it was really well done, especially with all the story lines going on throughout.
I had a feeling about a certain character in the book that I ended up being right about in a way. I liked Will Robie as a character and I can not wait to read the rest books in this series.
Over all this book was really good, which I have found with all of Baldacci’s books and it was a great start for 2021.
