The Gods of Guilt Michael Connelly read online review & book description:

Defense attorney Mickey Haller is forced to bend the law until it breaks when he is hired to defend a man accused of killing a prostitute in this novel of courtroom suspense, the "best one yet" (The Washington Post).

Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game.

When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger.

Haunted by the ghosts of his past, Mickey must work tirelessly and bring all his skill to bear on a case that could mean his ultimate redemption or proof of his ultimate guilt. The Gods of Guilt shows once again why "Michael Connelly excels, easily surpassing John Grisham in the building of courtroom suspense" (Los Angeles Times).

  • Best of All Connolly’s Novels

    By BarbaraGenie
    I’ve ready each of the authors books and loved them all. However, this book was his most brilliant work in my opinion. It was a riveting page-turner. The characters were awesome. And the title, Gods of Guilt, has many shades of meaning.

    Love the Mickey Haller stories but this one is my new favorite. What a ride! This story kept me captivated for days; I only HATE that I finished it.
  • Loved it!

    When I read the first installment in the Lincoln Lawyer series I was hooked by Mick Haller. I enjoy Connelly's first person writing style, which seemed even more realistic in this book because of the way he expertly wove comments about The Lincoln Lawyer movie. I hope The Gods of Guilt isn't the final book in this series!
  • Great!

    Michael Connelly never fails to weave an exciting tale. His characters are always spot on and the amount of research he does is obvious in every one of his books. Can't get enough. I thoroughly enjoyed the dual endings--it gave a little insight as to how this master story teller thinks.

    By far and away the weakest effort from Connelly to date. Rambling, and way too "clever". I wouldn't at all be surprised if it was ghost written. I found myself having to psyche up to finish it off. Very disappointing.

    Awesome book, great story. Keeps you glued to the story, you think you know what is going to happen next then he throughs you a curve and your off stunned thinking omg never saw that coming. Loved every second not a dull moment in the book. Had to force myself to stop reading and got to bed. LOL

    This book was a fun ride! It kept my attention beyond my time limits to read. I could hardly wait to return to the world of the Lincoln Lawyer. As to the "bonus" chapter. I preferred the shootout...lots of action. (And, why does everything have to be believable? It's fiction from start to finish, right?
