Publisher's Summary

Representing a man accused of throwing his wife overboard, chic attorney Lauren Hill begins to artfully present her case. But when Judge Howell seems to morph into God, Lauren's life of infidelity, poor parenthood, and self-absorption is questioned by the Almighty, who charges Lauren with committing the seven deadly sins. 

But is this real or fantasy? Is Lauren on the edge of a nervous breakdown, or is God presiding and ultimately deciding Lauren’s fate? 

In Defense of Guilt is a gripping story of self-discovery, justice, and ultimately, love.

IN DEFENSE OF GUILT makes You THINK!!!

The narration was great and the story ,thought provoking, a look at yourself kind of book. With a twist. I received this book free for a review and this does not change the outcome of my review. I will be listening to this book again, it really had me thinking about my own life.

I’d Defend the Narrator, but not the Book nor the Author

•audiobook• In defense of Defense of Guilt, maybe I’ve watched too many Law & Orders and spin offs. Listening to this was a crossover of Touched by An Angel and Legally Blonde, but without the endearing characters and humour. For some reason, the “hottest” attorneys acting like immature brats having a pissing contest on the playground aka courtroom was unkindly torture to the brain. Emotions were devoid except for the occasional “Am I crazy?” episodes. Here we have another ex(?) attorney stepping into the writing game. But without class and double heaps of perhaps crash writing course. The book description was great. The idea was good. But the writing failed to keep it interesting. Luckily, it was a short book narrator by a talented voice actor, Lawrence Alexander, and swallowing a couple chapters a day was possible. If he narrated more fiction, I would definitely listen to him more! We all wonder how defense lawyers live with themselves when their job is to provide reasonable doubt. I never bought into her “cleverness” nor her intelligence. None of the characters really popped out to become living, breathing people. A book to skip, but a narrator to look out for.

Chilling good read!

First, I have to start off by stating that I got this book free of charge in exchange for a review, but as I always state, this does not in any way impact my review. My reviews are always honest and my own. Representing a man accused of throwing his wife overboard, chic attorney Lauren Hill begins to artfully present her case. But when Judge Howell seems to morph into God, Lauren’s life of infidelity, poor parenthood, and self-absorption are questioned by the Almighty, who charges Lauren with committing the seven deadly sins. But is this real or fantasy? Is Lauren on the edge of a nervous breakdown, or is God presiding and ultimately deciding Lauren’s fate? In Defense of Guilt is a gripping story of self-discovery, justice, and ultimately about love. This is a great book for those who love legal thrillers of John Grisham and Scott Turow.

Interesting themes.

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The narrator was excellent and really improved the experience of listing to the story. There is no grad plot twist but the story unfolds as we learn more about the main character. Although the book is religious it is not intolerant and definitely more reflective of my stance on religion than other novels. Overall an interesting read especially the court plot.
