By David Baldacci
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.
The guilty5By Bavarian HillbillyWell written book. I was afraid it would be typical of a Northern Author writing about the south. Not so much. Reminded me of Lee Child's protagonist Jack Reacher. Good storyline, and it will have you guessing on where it is going.
Great ending5By ProMaxOne of his most thrilling and touching books I have read. This entire series is a great read.
Horrible1By Cardiac Arrest 99This is absolutely the worst book I have read to date...
Waste of money1By SS in VAThis 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.
Verbose1By JjjytugfewsTook too long to get there.
The guilty5By Johntdoccan'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?
