Publisher Description

After failing a critical assignment overseas, Will Robie must investigate a murder accusation against his father--but to save him, he'll have to face a violent and deadly fallout in this New York Times bestselling thriller.

Will Robie escaped his small Gulf Coast hometown of Cantrell, Mississippi after high school, severing all personal ties, and never looked back. Not until the unimaginable occurs. His father, Dan Robie, has been arrested and charged with murder.

Father and son haven't spoken or seen each other since the day Robie left town. In that time, Dan Robie--a local attorney and pillar of the community--has been elected town judge. Despite this, most of Cantrell is aligned against Dan. His guilt is assumed.

To make matters worse, Dan has refused to do anything to defend himself. When Robie tries to help, his father responds only with anger and defiance. Could Dan really be guilty?

With the equally formidable Jessica Reel at his side, Robie ignores his father's wishes and begins his own desperate investigation into the case. But Robie is now a stranger to his hometown, an outsider, a man who has forsaken his past and his family. His attempts to save his father are met with distrust and skepticism...and violence.

Unlike the missions Robie undertook in the service of his country, where his target was clearly defined, digging into his father's case only reveals more questions. Robie is drawn into the hidden underside of Cantrell, where he must face the unexpected and possibly deadly consequences of the long-ago choices made by father and son. And this time, there may be no escape for either of them.

"I started downloading the next book before this one even ended! David Baldacci is a fantastic writer. I love his attention to detail by including the characters little habits, actions... everything through all of the books. I was not as impressed with this narrator for Robie but I am happy Orlagh was still the female voice. She is amazing! I don’t want the series to end!!!"

— Vickie Watts (5 out of 5 stars)

Quotes

  • “The story sings…Baldacci is a gifted storyteller, and he knows how to keep the pages turning.”

    — Associated Press
  • “Baldacci fans will not be disappointed. The action is slam-bang with his trademarked twist. Once past the climax, you’ll find yourself flipping back and rereading to find the clues the author has sprinkled throughout.”

    — Florida Times-Union
  • “A fast-moving thriller that will force readers into that ”zone,‘ where you don’t want to put the book down…Whether you are a die-hard fan or a newcomer to his work, you will not be disappointed in The Guilty.”

    — BookReporter.com
  • “A first-class thriller…David Baldacci’s four bestselling novels about government assassin Will Robie have straddled that line of edgy, high-concept suspense, augmented with a bit of the political thriller, and deep character studies. In The Guilty, Baldacci takes a different tack with a more personal but just as thrilling tale about Will’s past, giving compelling insight about how he became a man so willing to kill for his country.”

    — Sun-Sentinel (Florida)
  • “Two narrators enhance this mystery, the fourth in the Will Robie series, adding clarity to the detailed conversations between the characters. Keith Brewer handles the narrative and male dialogue, capably portraying assassin Robie…[and] gently projects Robie’s hidden Southern accent. Voicing the female dialogue, Orlagh Cassidy provides just enough characterization to differentiate Robie’s steely sidekick, Jessica Reel, the tough-as-nails local policewoman, and his father’s new wife.”

    — Sun-Sentinel (FL)
  • Another tremendous entry in the best-selling thrillermaster's increasingly impressive resume...it is the relationships that truly stand out. Among the most noteworthy is the rapport between Robie and Reel, with the professional and personal trust and respect that the two share for one another - having risked it all for each other several times before - feeling believable and compelling, not to mention being the source of a fair amount of witty banter. The tense dynamic between Robie and his father is palpable as well, and their shifting relationship - and how they both deal with the wounds of the past - is one of the book's highlights...A labyrinthine journey full of dead ends and surprising turns, with new reveals doled out at regular intervals as the story builds to its shocking conclusion, a spectacular double-twist climax that will leave even the most jaded thriller readers impressed.

    — The Strand Magazine
  • It's indisputable that Baldacci's handling of action just gets better and better....the action in small-town Texas will end up rivaling anything Robie has encountered in his long years of serving his government.

    — NJ.com
  • David Baldacci has never been better than in THE GUILTY. His latest to feature conflicted assassin extraordinaire Will Robie takes the character - and series - to new heights....A stunning success from one of America's great literary talents.

    " Yet another great story in the Robie series. I liked the fact Baldacci has kept Reel as a sidekick to Robie. The new narrator is as good as the last one.
