"Defense attorney Mickey Haller returns with a haunting case in the gripping new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling 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)"--
Michael Connelly may just be my favorite writer. In The Gods of Guilt he kept my glued to the pages. Although readers may figure out "who dunnit it," early on, it's impossible to figure out how the Lincoln Lawyer is going to prove it and win his client's freedom. Unlike many writers with multiple best sellers, Connelly keeps his books fresh, his characters multi-dimensional, and the action realistic. His main character, the Lincoln Lawyer, is an unusual mix of macho bravado and female sensitivity and intuition - making for an all-time good read.
