The Gods of Guilt

The Gods of Guilt

The ‘Lincoln Lawyer’ grapples with a haunting case in a 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.

Suddenly, Mickey’s not just trying to get his client off a murder charge, but there is a more personal connection: the victim was Gloria Dayton – his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow. Far from saving her, Haller may have been her downfall.

Haunted by the ghosts of his own past, and with his own guilt or redemption on the line, he desperately needs to find out who Gloria really was and who, ultimately, was responsible for her death.

Reviews

Michael Connelly is best known for his 'Bosch' series of LAPD prodedurals, but he's created an even better character in sleazy defence lawyer Mickey Haller ... Connelly probes justice and guilt, and the lengths people will go to in fluid, addictive prose.
CATHOLIC HERALD
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
