David Baldacci — The Guilty

I always enjoy David Baldacci’s novels. I enjoyed this one too, even though it was too macho and filled with too much killing by both the bad guys and the good. I guess that’s to be expected when the two main characters are government assassins—Will Robie and partner Jessica Reel.

The plot twists and turns, interesting but at times unbelievable. I like that Robie goes back to his hometown to help his father, who he hasn’t seen or spoken to in over twenty years. I felt as if the first two or three chapters explaining why he did this could have been condensed into a couple of pages or left out altogether.

Not my favorite of Baldacci’s books, but interesting enough to keep me reading to the end.
