The Gods of Guilt by Michael Connelly Book Summary


Defense attorney Mickey Haller is forced to bend the law until it breaks when he is hired to defend a man accused of killing a prostitute in this novel of courtroom suspense, the "best one yet" (The Washington Post).   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).

Gods of GuiltI love the Mickey Haller series. I have trouble with the guilt he carries and the anger from his ex-wife and daughter. Our courts are built on prosecutor and defense lawyers, he has a necessary and vital role in our judicial system. I would like to see him satisfied with the job he does. I hope he is moving on from his ex-wife..Score: 5/5

LetdownBy far and away the weakest effort from Connelly to date. Rambling, and way too "clever". I wouldn't at all be surprised if it was ghost written. I found myself having to psyche up to finish it off. Very disappointing..Score: 2/5

Gods of GuiltAs usual Michael Connelly grabs you by the arms and pulls you into the life of the Lincoln Lawyer. In this book we see much of the heart of Michael Haller and his pure need to see justice done. We feel his sense of guilt, his passion for truth and his response to personal losses. I always wait patiently (?) for the next book, hoping they are not weekly books knocked out for the $$ they bring because he will lose me as an avid fan if he turns into Robert Patterson whom I used to love to read. Keep it up Michael. You're doing great!.Score: 5/5

Best of All Connolly’s NovelsI’ve ready each of the authors books and loved them all. However, this book was his most brilliant work in my opinion. It was a riveting page-turner. The characters were awesome. And the title, Gods of Guilt, has many shades of meaning..Score: 5/5

Best So Far!Love the Mickey Haller stories but this one is my new favorite. What a ride! This story kept me captivated for days; I only HATE that I finished it..Score: 5/5

Great!Michael Connelly never fails to weave an exciting tale. His characters are always spot on and the amount of research he does is obvious in every one of his books. Can't get enough. I thoroughly enjoyed the dual endings--it gave a little insight as to how this master story teller thinks..Score: 5/5

The Gods of GuiltGreat! Loved it! Couldn't put it down..Score: 5/5

Another Extra Base Hit!As with every Connelly book I've read--and I've read almost all of them--this was a page turner that I could hardly put down. While I prefer the tortured and driven Harry Bosch to the glib and somewhat self righteous attorney Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer-series is as good showing the ambiguities of trial work as it is with law enforcement, while bringing real characters to life in fascinating tales. Sorry for the reality that Harry is getting old enough that further adventures will be hard to credibly craft, but old lawyers never die..Score: 4/5

Uneven,but basically a good twisty storyTo me, this was not his best. I am more a character reader than a plot reader, and so I read this kind of book for the fast paced mindlessness of it. This was not a mindless read as it had all the Twists and turns of court drama, some gratuitous violence, and some interesting strategies..Score: 4/5

Loved it!When I read the first installment in the Lincoln Lawyer series I was hooked by Mick Haller. I enjoy Connelly's first person writing style, which seemed even more realistic in this book because of the way he expertly wove comments about The Lincoln Lawyer movie. I hope The Gods of Guilt isn't the final book in this series!.Score: 5/5

The Gods of GuiltI have read all of Connelly's book and this by far was my least favorite book. There was to much jumping back and forth with the past and present that never really came together. Not enough back story, it felt like there were large holes in the story. I spent the first few chapters thinking I missed reading a book in this story until I checked the web and found many readers thought the same. There was not a missed book just Connelly trying to fill in two years, you could not relate to those two years. Everything was ok with his daughter in his last book but not in this. A rushed novel..Score: 1/5

WowThis book was a fun ride! It kept my attention beyond my time limits to read. I could hardly wait to return to the world of the Lincoln Lawyer. As to the "bonus" chapter.

Mr. Connelly Does Not Disappoint!Just when he needs it, Mickey Haller gets a case where his client is not simply "not guilty" ( I hesitate to call his client innocent), but the case has lots of intricate twists and turns and an extremely satisfying ending. Haller exposes corrupt cops and wins the day, plus he goes a long way in repairing some important personal relationships. Michael Connelly has another winner. Harry Bosch even makes a brief cameo!.Score: 5/5
