Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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).

Review:

"[I]lluminating about the ways in which the law works and doesn't." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Thanks to Mickey's complexities, the Lincoln Lawyer series keeps getting better. I think this is the best one yet, but admittedly, I've thought that about them all." Washington Post

Review:

"Mr. Connelly writes courtroom drama as a changeable set of circumstances, so that Mickey's role as manipulator is at least as important as his detecting. In this book, he does a very satisfying job of feinting about what he's truly after until he leaves his real target wholly unprotected, and the maneuvering is masterly." Janet Maslin, the New York Times
