The Guilty with David Baldacci, Wednesday, February 10

Please note: This dinner is now sold out. Please email lorna@pen.org if you would like to be addded to the waiting list.

You are invited to a private dinner with novelist David Baldacci.

The dinner will be hosted by Roxanne Donovan & Tom Scarangello on Wednesday, February 10. Please note: This dinner will start at 7 p.m.

David will discuss his latest book, The Guilty, a riveting thriller where Will Robie is the government’s most professional, disciplined, and lethal assassin. He infiltrates the most hostile countries in the world, defeats our enemies’ advanced security measures, and eliminates threats before they ever reach our nation. But suddenly his skills have escaped him. Sent overseas on a critical mission, he fails, unable to pull the trigger. Without his talents, Robie is a man without a purpose. To recover what he has lost, Robie must confront what he has tried to forget for over twenty years: his own past.

Praise for The Guilty: “Another tremendous entry in the best-selling thrillermaster’s increasingly impressive resume…it is the relationships that truly stand out. Among the most noteworthy is the rapport between Robie and Reel, with the professional and personal trust and respect that the two share for one another – having risked it all for each other several times before – feeling believable and compelling, not to mention being the source of a fair amount of witty banter. The tense dynamic between Robie and his father is palpable as well, and their shifting relationship – and how they both deal with the wounds of the past – is one of the book’s highlights…A labyrinthine journey full of dead ends and surprising turns, with new reveals doled out at regular intervals as the story builds to its shocking conclusion, a spectacular double-twist climax that will leave even the most jaded thriller readers impressed.” —The Strand Magazine
