In The Innocent by David Baldacci, Will Robie is a government assassin who likes to watch the normal people that live around him and hopes to live to be like them one day. To that end, he’s started attending neighbor events and has started a flirtation with an attractive woman across the hall. When he aborts his newest assignment due to a crisis of conscience only to find that his handler had a back-up plan, Robie goes on the run and meets a 14-year-old girl with people after her. Robie vows to find a way to keep her safe and, hopefully, save himself at the same time.
