Description

Will Robie is the government's most professional, disciplined, and lethal assassin. He infiltrates the most hostile countries in the world, defeats our enemies' advanced security measures, and eliminates threats before they ever reach our shores.
But now, his skills have left him. Sent overseas on a critical assignment, he fails, unable to pull the trigger. Absent his talents, Robie is a man without a mission, and without a purpose.
To recover what he has lost, Robie must confront what he has tried to forget for over twenty years: his own past.
THE GUILTY
Will Robie escaped his small Gulf Coast hometown of Cantrell, Mississippi, after high school, severing all personal ties, and never looked back. Not once. 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.

    This book is a disaster. The plot is so convoluted as to be unbelievable. Poor characters. Just a complete disaster of a book. Baldacci is capable of good stories. This is not one.

    can't go to sleep without finishing this one. Never expected the outcome. It's a non stop read. Loved it. I felt the Mississippi heat the entire time. Where's my ice cold sweet tea?

    This book does not disappoint at all! It keeps you interested from the beginning to end which was a bit of a surprise twist for me! I loved all the other books in this series too!

    a pleasant read that trots along with predictable turns. But like so many books then rushes to the finish in the last few chapters
  • Slow

    I've read all of Baldacci's novels, and this is one of the most gripping reads. Had only the slightest idea of who the murderer might be, and that's only because I have read thousands of novels, at least 1k in the genres of murder/spy/intrigue/mystery/psychological/thriller,.... I particulary enjoyed learning Will Robie's back story, finally! What a series of twists in the plot!
