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)

    "Good Story but boring reader."

    Boring voice this time... The other Conelly stuff on audible.com was read more carefully, as by Dick Hill for instance.

    M. Conelly deliveres as always <3 Keep on typing, man!!!

    "Predictable and boring"
    What would have made The Gods of Guilt better?

    I wish it was shorter and narrated better.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this author a lot but this book did not do it for me. It was too long and tedious to listen to.

    "The edge of your seat"

    Very intriguing, and for the most part, kept one involved thru the end. Often, did not want to put the book down because of wanting to know the next tidbit.... Lots of unforeseen twists and turns.

    "Peter Giles"

    The first audio books Mr Giles read for Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series didn't impress me. In fact I thought he sounded silly and distracting. I have changed my opinion with this and the last in the Mickey Haller series. Great book, great story and outstanding reading.

    "Deep and complex story line"

    Awesome tale of murder, corruption, collateral damage, family drama and justice. Lots of players in the story so I had to make notes of who is who as the story unfolded and characters were reintroduced.

    Story
    "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!
