"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."
"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 diehard fan or a newcomer to his work, you will not be disappointed in THE GUILTY."―BookReporter
"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 (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."―Providence Sunday Journal

There was a time when David Baldacci was my second favorite author. He slowly dropped from #2 but remained in my top 5. Then he dropped somewhere between 6 and 10.
Now I sadly can state I’m close to giving up on him completely. His novels have become formulaic. Characters interchangeable. It almost feels like he uses the same template—and then just inserts whichever character. (Am I the only one who feels there no difference between King and Sean Maxwell and Will Robie?)
I will say that, for some reason, I never got into ‘The Camel Club’ series. That was okay, though because I loved John Puller as well as King and Maxwell and Robie and Reel. His standalones were…good. But even those always felt like it could have been one in a series.
Lately, the only novels of his I’ve enjoyed are the John Puller books. “The Forgotten,” which was the first Baldacci book I ever read, as well as ‘Zero Day’ and ‘The Escape’ were great novels.
However, the last several non-Puller books I came across were really struggles to get through.
First Family (K & M) was a big disappointment. The president’s family was so unbelievable the book was almost laughable. But I suffered through it cause…well, it’s Baldacci.
I read ‘Split Second,’ the first K & M book. I finished it mostly due to the fact it was interesting to see how K&M started out. The story, the plot and the writing was a bit of a struggle. But I read it cause…well, it’s Baldacci.
“The Innocent” was the first Will Robie novel. I found it awful, especially Robie’s sidekick who was 13 going on 35.Read more ›
While a major hit by Robie is successful, the collateral damage of the death of a young girl by the same bullet is too emotional for Robie to take. He is not able to complete his next assignment where a young boy is in the same room as his target.
His controller tells him to take a break and get himself together again. At the same time, he tells him that his estranged father has been arrested for murder. Reluctantly Robie goes back to the small Mississippi town that he left over 20 years ago to find out what has happened. Robie has to face up to his past and the estranged father who physically and mentally abused him for so many years.
I enjoyed the first half of the book (3.5 stars) as Robie adjusts again to life in the small deep-south town he abandoned a long time ago. Many things have changed. His father is now a Judge, has remarried a beautiful woman around Robie's age and has a 3-year-old son (so Robie now has a stepmother and half-brother). He starts to come to grips with the past and tries to work out if he can help his father - the only way to get his father released is to find the actual murderer. But his father is not very enthusiastic about his help.
The second part of the book is basically a third-rate whodunit (2 stars). When his colleague Jessica Reel comes to help him the body count escalates. Robie and Reel discover more murders, blackmail, pedophilia, incest, and consanguinity. Of course along the way they get ambushed and chased by the baddies.Read more ›
This is, without doubt, the worst of that series. And that's due pretty much to one thing: the absolutely preposterous and ridiculous big reveal ending. I won't say what it is so as not to give a massive spoiler, but quite frankly I thought it was absurd beyond belief (literally).
