The Gods of Guilt (Mickey Haller Series Book 5) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
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.
From the Back Cover
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. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

An entertaining but not very surprising courtroom thriller from the reliable pen of Michael Connolly. The Lincoln Lawyer packed a wallop - built a world and provided a wonderfully flawed hero in Bosch's half brother, Mickey Haller. I skipped to novel 5, but a lot of the magic of the first Haller has worn thin.
It draws on some of the characters of the first novel to set up this wrongful murder story. This is an asset and a liability. Like with LL, the female characters are poorly drawn Mary Sues that Haller overly praises for doing their jobs (Aronson). The mystery itself is OK, but you know what's coming. There are a couple of surprises that don't really succeed.
That said, its never dull and Connolly obviously relishes the Haller character, so it's worth a read. Just don't expect greatness.
Well, as I was coming to the end of the Connelly portfolio, I kinda felt that the Haller series didn’t feel as good as Bosch. A bit less fluid, and not quite as entertaining, but a decent read nevertheless and I’d probably still be reading them if there were more.
On to Lee Childs’ Jack Reacher now.
