One cold November night when Kat Kominski was fifteen years old, she and some friends held up a convenience store. In the heat of the moment, one of the others shot and killed an off-duty cop moonlighting as a security guard. Kat and her pals fled the scene in a panic, and no one was caught.

Thirteen years later, Kat—now Kate White—has built a new life for herself. Now a single mom with a nine-year-old son, she works as a prosecutor in the Philadelphia DA’s office. But her dark past returns to haunt her when she walks into court one day and has a devastating encounter with a prisoner, Mario Castellanos, one of her companions from that terrible night.

Hardcore criminal Mario is facing a possible sentence of twenty years. He lets Kate know that he is counting on her, his old friend turned prosecutor, to make sure he goes free instead. If Kate doesn’t do what he wants, he’ll claim she was the one who killed the off-duty cop.

Kate is in a bind: If the truth about her past gets out, she stands to lose everything, including her son. But she can’t do what Mario wants, either. As Mario ups his demands, blackmailing and terrorizing her, she is forced to turn for protection to a sexy homicide detective, Tom Braga, who suspects her of…something. The two clash repeatedly as Tom keeps digging into her past, trying to learn the truth.

Then another, far more menacing, threat rears its head, and Kate realizes that her life—and her son’s—are in terrible danger. Frantic, she sees that she has nowhere to turn. Except, maybe, to Tom.…

    " I read the Reader's Digest abridged version of Karen Robards's Guilty staying up late last night to finish it. What a great story!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 2/7/2014

    " Not my favorite KR book, not by a long shot. Forgetable characters, plot and premise. Blah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda | 1/25/2014

    " Another good book by Karen Robards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/21/2014

    " I liked this book. It pretty much keeps you guessing on a number of items right up to the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Horton | 1/16/2014

    " You can't go wrong with a Karen Robards book. She manages to make you laugh and continues to add twists to her books so that you probably will not guess who the bad guy is until you get all the way to the end. Great suspense! Great! Seriously! Frustrating! And, lastly, a wonderful love story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 1/13/2014

    " If I had to read one more line about the main character taking a "deep and hopefully calming" breath, I was going to scream. This book was just so repetitive. It was also very difficult to get into - I almost put it down several times and only continued reading because I had already paid for it and hate to waste my money. The romantic scenes between the two main characters were decent, but really the only redeeming thing about this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/2/2014

    " Far better than I thought it was going to be when I started reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/17/2013

    " I would of given this book a five, except I thought the ending was too slow. 90% of the book was a fast read, however the last 10% just seemed too long to me. I liked the book and the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 10/11/2013

    " Fairly interesting legal thriller, but the author made a mistake in stating that the Chesapeake Bay goes up to Philadelphia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 10/5/2013

    " It was ok; kind of predictable it had potential but not really go anywhere. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patty | 9/1/2013

    " It might seem trivial, but there were way too many geographical errors that took me out of the story. The Philadelphia Naval Yard on the Chesapeake Bay? Really?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 8/4/2013

    " it was good...a little too nicely wrapped up "

    " This wasn't one of the best books I've read by Karen Robards, but it was enjoyable. It was a fast and easy read and kept me interested. I thought that the ending seemed a little bit rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 3/19/2013

    " I am really growing to like Karen Robards. Her stories tend to capture my attention and I find myself not able to put the book down. Her characters are always somebody that anyone could relate to, and I find myself liking her characters instantly. "

    " When you think you left the past for good and when you turn the corner its right there ready to come back to you. Guilty is about how sometimes the past comes back when you least expect it and with it, it can ruin your life. "
