Publisher's Summary

Defense attorney Mickey Haller returns with a haunting case in the gripping new thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly.

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).

What the Critics Say

"The combination of this fast-paced courtroom drama and Giles's steady and consistent narration makes for an engrossing listening experience…Giles's rich portrayals help listeners differentiate the multiple characters as Haller becomes convinced that his client is not only innocent but also the victim of an elaborate setup involving local police and DEA agents." (AudioFile)

"Connelly knows when to put his foot on the gas and when to take it off. Once he has you on board, turning the pages, you won't want to climb off." (Boston Globe)

"Haller is the kind of slick, cynical showman who can't resist making high drama out of every legal procedure....There's always something deadly serious behind Connelly's entertaining courtroom high jinks" (New York Times Book Review)

    "Not really credible."

    I am a Michael Connelly fan however l found this book seemed to be struggling to fill a required number of pages. Too many tenuous links. Too long to reveal indisputable evidence. Disappointing in my opinion.

    Story
    "Excellent entertainment as usual"
    If you could sum up The Gods of Guilt in three words, what would they be?

    One good lawyer!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Sympathy for the main character - I like seeing him finally succeed (in some ways, at least).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one scene - what stands out is the intricacy of the plot and the way it compels me to keep listening.


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

    A legal thriller!

    "Love this series"

    Great storyline, I'm always on the edge of my seat. The characters seem very human and real and I never know what's going to happen next. I think this narrator often sounds like he's reading from the book though and sometimes that takes me out of the story. So for this series has been one of my favorites on audible.

    "Good - but Harry is better"

    Found this a nice change from the Harry Bosch series - but not quite as good. Writing is solid and there are a few surprises along the way - but also a few things that seem improbable

    "As Always, Great!"

    As a former homicide detective for LAPD, the author know his stuff! Very accurate with police procedure and a great read. To bad he didn't make his character a DDA.

    "Amazing"

    Talk about redefining the "Perry Mason" court room confession! I am not a lawyer genre fan but I can't wait for the next book! I've listened to all of the Lincoln Lawyer books and I'm anxiously awaiting the next. And if Michael Connelly reads these... Earl is great, why? I was so happy he was in the drivers seat again.
