Will Robie is a hitman for the US government. In this storyline, Robie works two different jobs, but they don’t go well. Time off is recommended, so he heads home to Mississippi. Robie puts his sniper gear away only to end up in a down home mystery.

This is Robie’s first time home since his high school graduation. We discover why he left and how it made him the man he is today. Robie had no clue when he left that night how much he affected his father and the town. On his return, Robie meets up with old friends and relives painful memories. He also runs into old enemies and takes the time to make new ones. Robie discovers his father, an attorney when he left, is now rich, remarried, and a judge. He’s also sitting in a jail cell, accused of murder. Robie’s father refuses to see him, but that doesn’t stop Robie from searching for the real killer. Robie has to expose the town secrets, as well as his own, to save his family. It’s a jaw dropping case that will leave you speechless.

In Baldacci’s The Guilty we get the essence of small town living – the good, the bad and the unforgivable. Baldacci lays out plenty of clues and suspects to satisfy even the die-hard suspense reader. The audio version is read by Kyf Brewer and Orlagh Cassidy. Their narration takes listeners on a southern ride they won’t soon forget.
