The Gods of Guilt
Defense attorney 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" is the most recent title in Michael Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer series. Per usual, protagonist Mickey Haller takes a licking and comes up still ticking.

Connelly's character, the Lincoln Lawyer has become boring, and the plot and storyline predictable. Haller defends a murder suspect where there's introduced prostitution solicitation online, controlled via a computer guru, in a pseudo pimp role. Included is the overall duties and activities of trial lawyers(prosecution & defense), the court room procedures, jury, judge and their interactions at a trail

Everybody has a jury, the voices they carry inside. Earl Briggs sits on my jury, Gloria Dayton, too. They are there with Katie and Sandy, my mother, my father, and soon Legal Siegel as well. Those I have loved and those I have hurt. Those who bless me and those who haunt me. My gods of guilt. Every day I carry on and I carry them close. Every day I step into the well before them and I argue my case.”
