Not one of Baldacci's best , and the ending was not up to Baldacci's usual standard, and became soapy and almost unbelievable, The last three or four chapters had a feeling of being rushed through by the writer.

This is my second Robie book, and I've listened to both.....book 3 had an amazing male reader and book 4's reader was not great....I got used to him, but.....anyway, I enjoyed the book, yet I don't believe people change that much in 20 years that you don't recognize them....a little hokey

Mr. Baldacci must have been under considerable pressure when it came to wrapping up this book. I am willing to suspend belief to some extent when enjoying fiction but the denouement of this book is beyond outrageous and certainly not worthy of a writer of his stature. Such a disappointment when I had read through the first 74 chapters with anxious anticipation.

agree with Happycanuck below. There could have been some great psychological tension in this novel but the plot was superficial. Nevertheless it is fast paced and there is satisfactory resolution, what one would expect from Baldacci

Disappointing.
After reading several Baldacci books this was unusual. It had an excellent story line and was the type of book that had you so hooked that you didn't want to put it down.
Then, after leading up to the last chapter, with "who don-nit" suspense it came unraveled and could have been written by a high school sophomore. Just a very weak ending.

Well written with a good pace. There were too many scenarios that were so far fetched that they were insulting to the reader's intelligence.

This book started out with a killing. It set the tone for the whole book - violence with a capital V. Yet, one wants Will Robie to kill, to be able to kill. WIll Robie loses his ability and takes an absence from his job to head to Mississippi where his father stands accused of murder. Will has not seen his father in two decades and there are a lot of unresolved issues between the two men including emotional and physical abuse. Will and his partner set about systematically trying to find an alternate suspect. Will they be able to? Will there be a lot of violence? Well, the answers are presented really well and in a fascinating manner in "The Guilty." One of Baldacci's better books.
