The 'Lincoln Lawyer' grapples with a haunting case in this gripping thriller from 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.

Smart-talking defence attorney Mickey Haller is the second of the masterful creations of the 57-year-old Connelly - after his unforgettable Detective Hieronymus 'Harry' Bosch.Haller first appeared in 2005 and this is his fifth incarnation. It underlines the fact that Connelly is one of the great crime writers, a novelist who creates a fictional world so succinctly, and inhabits it so purposefully, that you are convinced it must be real. His mastery of place and character, his ease with dialogue, his control of plot gives his books a subtlety that is irresistible. — DAILY MAIL
Connelly's fifth novel to feature roguish defence lawyer Mickey Haller is even better than last year's The Black Box — MAIL ON SUNDAY EVENT MAGAZINE
Connelly tells his story in the taut, driven, journalistic style that has become his trademark as an author over the course of two decades and 26 novels. The result is a propulsive, intricately plotted and emotionally involving tale, but The Gods of Guilt also marks the emergence of Mickey Haller ... to become a complex and fascinating character in his own right. — IRISH TIMES
