Publisher's Summary

Jack Marconi is back in legal hot water. In The Guilty, Jack finds himself investigating a local restaurateur and spoiled playboy who's accused of attempting to murder his school teacher girlfriend. As the now brain-damaged young woman begins recalling events of that fateful dark winter night when she was allegedly pushed down the stairs of a West Albany mansion, she becomes the target of the powerful but angry foodie/sex-obsessed boyfriend once again. Only this time, he's cooking up a bloody plot to keep her silenced forever.

Almost okay ...

Would you try another book from Vincent Zandri and/or Andrew B. Wehrlen?

I've listened to a lot from both. My expectations from my previous experiences weren't met by either in this book, but I would still listen to others by them.

Has The Guilty turned you off from other books in this genre?

I'm less interested in this series by the author.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Mr Werhlen usually does an incredible job with voice distinctions. This was not one of his best narrations. But perhaps he shouldn't give his all to a book that was flailing. You know, sometimes you can only work with what you've got. Can't turn everything into gold.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book description had a promising mystery. It just didn't quite meet the hype.

Well Worth the Listen


This is an enjoyable murder mystery or was it just an accidental death. The cops don’t know or do not want to push to hard against the wealth and power of their community. The father of the victim hires Private Investigator Jack Marconi to prove the murder. All sounds pretty standard the it begins to turn to the dark side and P. I. Marconi begins to unravel a tale of power, intrigue, and a dark side the disturbs even him.
This is a great story with a enough twist and turns to keep you listening until the very end.
This is a good story with very good narration.

What a Page Turner!

If you could sum up The Guilty in three words, what would they be?

Corruption. Mystery. Sex.

What did you like best about this story?

The story-line was great. It really was compelling and kept me guessing until the end as to who was the culprit. The story had solid reasoning and was very enthralling. It was hard to put down.

Which character – as performed by Andrew B. Wehrlen – was your favorite?

I really enjoyed Blood. He is an action character and street wise. He was tough but yet likeable.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Be Sure and Stay Tuned to the End! You'll Be Glad You Did!

Marconi is a keeper

Shades of Parker's Spencer and Hawke. The Guilty hit on all cylinders and was a pleasure to listen to. Andrew B. Wehrlen did the material justice and I will be looking for more in the series. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Any additional comments?

This was my first Jack Marconi mystery and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I absolutely love this character! He's strong and capable and every bit the alpha male.

The mystery was multi-faceted and a bit disturbing. You know early on who the bad guy is but the big reveal at the ending was still a surprise.

I loved the narrator! Jack Marconi is written as an alpha male but Andrew Wehrlen made you believe. His narration was strong and affable and distinct. He's definitely on my radar for more.

Gets sillier every hour.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

As far as mystery / detective stories go, this book will be somewhere at the middle of the stack. The characters weren't pretty one dimensional and not very intriguing. The story kept getting sillier every hour and I kept losing interest in it. After a point, I just wanted to get it over with. So, no I won't recommend this book to a friend.

Did Andrew B. Wehrlen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Not really. All the different characters sounded more or less the same. I had to figure it out myself about who was the speaker of this dialogue.

Was The Guilty worth the listening time?

Not really. Reason explained in the first answer above.

Any additional comments?

I received this book for free from the author / narrator / publisher, in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fast Paced Ride

Did Andrew B. Wehrlen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I definitely knew when the female characters had dialogue versus the male characters. However, the majority of the time all the male characters sounded alike...fast tempo in speech and a little cocky. The listener eventually learns to pay attention to who is in the scene and gets the gist. I gave the story and performance 3.5 stars. It could have been a fun performance if Mr. Wehrlen varied the tempo and style of the various main characters.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Zandri creates a fast paced thriller. He builds a wide variety of cast members to keep the story moving...a career-motivated blogger, a smooth detective, a couple of rich and powerful entrepreneurs, a silver-spooned playboy, a street smart/newly released from prison and 'looking-out' for his neighborhood informant and, of course, several curvy and sexy women. Mr. Zandri will keep you guessing until the end.

Enjoyable Mystery

Any additional comments?

While "The Guilty: Book 3" isn't the *best* mystery/thriller book I've listened to, it also holds it's own pretty well. This tale involves some bad players of the vampire type variety and also your good-old-fashioned rich, power hungry jerks. The only remotely strong female characters in this book were empowered sexually and in no other way, which I do not super love. Overall, I'd give the story a 7/10 and I probably wouldn't recommend it to my friends only because I think there are better stories to be read!

extremely Good.. !!

Very intense story line. Held my interest from beginning to end. Could not put it down! Although I did guess the killer very early in the book but it did not distract from the story.. excellent book. In fact the whole series is very realistic and sucks you into the characters life, to the point you have to remember that it's a book.. Very highly recommend..

Till death do us part

Any additional comments?

Author Vincent Zandri can be counted on to come up with a good story and larger than life protagonists and The Guilty does not disappoint. A civil court case between the very rich architect father of a girl left brain damaged after a fall on the icy steps of her fiancée's home and that same fiancee, involves PI, former prison supervisor, Jack 'Keeper' Marconi in an investigation to find out if she fell - or was she pushed?
The story is wild, twisted and very enjoyable and made all the more so by the narration of the excellent Andrew Wehrein. His voicings of each of the protagonists is distinctly individual and he becomes the fast talking, rather jaded investigator, Keeper. The story is told in the first person from the PI's point of view, with occasional 'news bulletins' from a food blogger's column. A cleverly written outrageous story with witty asides and well performed: a must for all who enjoy the charismatic bad boy investigative genre. My thanks to the rights holder who gifted me a copy of this fun book, via Audiobook Boom at my request.
