I would like to read The Guilty by David Baldacci. This exciting thriller features assassin Will Robie, who left his small Gulf Coast hometown of Cantrell, Mississippi, after high school, severing all personal ties, and has never looked back since . He went on to become one of the government’s most professional, disciplined, and lethal assassin, infiltrating the most hostile countries in the world, defeating our enemies’ advanced security measures, and eliminating threats before they ever reach our shores, until a critical assignment goes wrong.
Then he discovers that 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. Dan has refused to do anything to defend himself. When Robie tries to help, his father responds only with anger and defiance. With the equally formidable Jessica Reel at his side, Robie ignores his father’s wishes and begins his own desperate investigation into the case. However his attempts to save his father are met with distrust, skepticism and violence and that digging into his father’s case only reveals more questions. Robie finds himself drawn into the hidden underside of Cantrell, where he faces unexpected and possibly deadly consequences
