The Guilty by David Baldacci
So what is Robie to do? The Blue Man sends him home to deal with his family problems - his father has been accused of murder. In typical Baldacci fashion he begins to unfurl the murder mystery.
I was hooked - sort of. This all felt more contrived than other Baldacci Robie books. I am tired of him almost finding his way out of the dark of the CIA and being pulled back in. This did it again.
I really didn't like the end of the book. The pulled and broken father/son relationship is stretched and messed with throughout this book. And then it is miraculously mended. I don't really like that. It pushes the edges of Robie in a way that I don't appreciate. And makes me even sadder when I think about it in relationship to friends with father issues - neatly tied solutions just don't ring true!
So - did I like it? It kept my interest and my focus on the beach in Mexico. But - i wouldn't recommend it.
