Description

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.

Great story.

Story is gripping, at times tugging at the heart strings too. You feel empathy for the characters. Story, although fiction, is believable. Descriptive detail creates clear images in the readers mind. It’s a long one and totally worth the credit. Peter Giles does a great job giving each character their own voice and remembering it when the character appears again. I think this is one of my favorite Michael Connelly books even though I am a Bosch fan through and through. I’ve finished all Connelly’s books. Where to next I wonder?

Another spellbinding Mickey Haller courtoom romp

Connelly is a masterful writer whose awesome skills have never been more effectively applied than in this engaging story of the dangerous fight to set an (almost) innocent man free.

Having produced thousands of voice-overs, I'd have to rate Peter Giles up there with Humphrey Bower as one of the best narrators (actors) I've ever heard.

Michael Connelly and Justice go hand in hand.

It was a great story line and the twists and turns. Connelly explains the legality of law proceedings with expert skill and is able to blend them into the story brilliantly. Thoroughly enjoyable!

What about Peter Giles’s performance did you like?

Simply splendid, such easy listening.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Everyone deserves Justice!

I still love the short connections made with Harry Bosch.

Outstanding Connelly

What did you love best about The Gods of Guilt?

The ins and outs of political and legal battles faced by Haller in his defense of his client.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely. The plot is full of unexpected but credible twists and turns.

What about Peter Giles’s performance did you like?

Actually, I wasn't overwhelmed by his performance. He does a very good job using different voices but tends to be whiny.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It just kept me on the edge of my seat.

Any additional comments?

I've read and enjoyed all of Connelly's Bosch series but am enjoying the Mickey Haller books even more.

Most likely the best Mike Haller story so far....

I've always considered Mike Haller the byproduct of a diversification strategy where Bosh is the 'core business' ( and the best of all) , while books centered around other characters have the objective to sort of "give a break" to Mike Connelly and let him write without having to consistently reinvent great Bosh stories. This book sets for me a new paradigm; the character of Haller is now maturing , taking a shape and role that stand out on their own ( who cares anymore if he is Bosh half-brother ?). The story plot is as good as it gets, the different characters -including the recurring cast around Mike Haller- engaging and forceful and the reader/listener is hooked to the book from the very beginning.
The Gods of guilt is a great book and makes me - for the first time- look forward to the next Haller story....

Gripping, but runs out of steam at times

Of course, Michael Connelly knows how to write crime fiction and he is extremely good at creating unusual, but plausible characters. This is one of the reasons, why I am a real fan of the Harry Bosch series. In Gods of Guilt, Mickey Haller, the Lincoln lawyer, is a completely different character and much less likeable. It comes with the profession that we tend to regard lawyers as scum, because they try so very hard – if the money is right – to get criminals of the hook. This story is a classical example of this conflict. Mickey Haller takes over the defense of a pimp, who is accused of having viciously killed one of his prostitutes. All the evidence is pointing his direction and his past as a smalltime perpetrator does not help him. No wonder, Mickey Haller’s daughter, as well as his ex, have serious issues with that. Against all odds, Mickey Haller and his team work very hard to uncover the truth and to prove the innocence of his client. From this point on the story becomes more a detective story with all the usual ingredients, even attempted murder. Regardless of all the action, the story sags a little bit in the middle part, but ends with thunder and lighting. All in all, nicely told and entertaining enough.

Michael Connelly...

... he's the best! No more to say. I've tried a lot of authors but Michael Connelly is the cream of the crop in this genre.

nerviger Sprecher

Gute Geschichte, die das erste Buch der Reihe wieder aufgreift. Aber nerviger Sprecher, der immer gleich intoniert und irgendwie gehetzt klingt. Lieber das Buch lesen!

Wieder ein super Buch

Ich habe kaum ein besseres Buch des Autors gelesen. Es ist phantastisch geschrieben, gut recherchiert und spannend.

Inhaltlich geht es um einen "digitalen Zuhälter", dem man einen Mord in die Schuhe geschoben haben soll. Aber selbst lesen macht am meisten Spaß.
