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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Michael Connelly may be the best thriller writer we have. Jane Henderson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Connelly excels....the consistency of his excellence is remarkable. Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times
Connelly inherits the mantle of Raymond Chandler and his legendary detective Philip Marlowe. And the similarities between the two writers don't stop there. Their books share a kind of ambitious artistry that strains to reach beyond genre fiction....Connelly understands how to deliver a great story of many pieces that coalesce into page-turning literature. Chuck Leddy, Boston Globe
“Connelly writes crime fiction verging subversively on literature.” Amazon.com, editorial review
Any new book by Michael Connelly is a cause for celebration....Connelly is one of the best crime story writers on the scene today. Each new novel refines his talent and makes its story one to be remembered. Jackie Cooper, Huffington Post
“Plenty of drama, danger, and suspense in this gem of a legal thriller.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A gripping novel, both in the courtroom and outside of it, and a testament to the melancholy maturing of Mickey Haller.” Booklist (starred review)
“Illuminating.” Kirkus Reviews

I sometimes think Mr. Connelly is writing for me only.

The Gods of Guilt, as all of his books makes me feel like I am one of the family. Riding alongside Mickey Haller as the drama unfolds. I find myself speaking to Mickey to advice him of the dangers ahead. Don't laugh! I am not the only one who gets so engrossed. It's the magic of a master story teller Michael Connelly and narrative from Peter Giles only increases the brew that has you spell bound.
