At the start of Michael Connelly’s terrific new Lincoln Lawyer novel, Mickey Haller is way, way down in the dumps. In The Gods of Guilt, we find him drinking too much, consumed with guilt and reduced to parking on a hillside overlooking his daughter’s school to watch her at soccer practice. The man is charged with murdering a high-priced prostitute whose Web sites he oversaw and whose assignations he managed online; a digital pimp, Mickey calls him.

Gods of Guilt-Sidekick is not Michael Connelly's novel but a summary of the novel done by Book Buddy. It was not what I expected and its only use would be for study purposes. Another excellent book by Michael Connelly - - The protagonist is Mickey Haller - he was the subject in the Lincoln Lawyer book and movie. Connelly makes a reference to the movie in this book and its a pretty funny reference. Like the Lincoln Lawyer, this book delves deeply into how a court room works - the gritty details behind the relationships between the judge, the prosecution, the defense team and the accused. Its a fascinating look at how our legal system works.

The Gods of guilt are us. We, who have a conscience, a sense of morality, a sense of humanity, and everything that makes us compassionate.
Mickey lost his election bid for DA and this is months later. He has become estranged from his 15 year old daughter. She still sees life in black and white, right or wrong, nothing in between. To make matters worse between them, Mickey is called on to defend a digital pimp who is accused of killing one of his girls. He had defended that same girl several years ago and she had a special place in his heart. He had helped her out of the life, or did he?
Clearing this client might clear up several crimes from years before and he has his usual antagonists who don't want to stir the pot. He is accused of muddying the water by bringing in evidence and witnesses from seemingly unrelated cases. However, the judge gives him the leeway he needs and things get done, but not before there is collateral damage.
I like the method of story telling that leads me to believe that trials are actually conducted in the manner this books talks about. Defense attorneys are the scum of the earth, but, like vultures, they do have their place in society...making sure that their clients are represented and treated fairly in all things related to law.

There is not much praise I can give Michael Connelly that has not already been heaped upon him by his readers and by critics. His crime writing is absolute genius. His series featuring Detective Harry Bosch is one of my favorite crime novel series. While I prefer Bosch to Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer, the other main character of several Connelly novels, including the one I review here The Gods of Guilt, I find that Haller is almost as fascinating as Bosch. I think my prejudice for Bosch lies in the fact that he is solving a crime while Haller is presenting a defense—and yes, solving the crime in the process, but somehow the courtroom setting is not quite as appealing to me as all of LA, which the Bosch novels use. That being said, Connelly is a legal scholar. In this novel, his character Haller presents his case in a detailed propulsion of evidence until there is no doubt what the legal outcome will be. And yet, the final scene is a stunner. This is what great writing is about, and Connelly is a great writer. Telling the tale of a high-tech pimp accused of murdering one of his prostitute clients, we grow to love both of them, for we know, as is necessary in a novel like this (so I offer no spoilers) that the pimp is innocent. And we know that Haller will present an explosive defense, even as we know he may bend the law a bit to get the job done. Supporting him are some colorful characters indeed: his biker investigator, his ex-wife secretary, his mentor in the nursing home, his sometimes-con driver Earl, and the brilliant young lawyer Haller has hired to assist him in his firm, a firm that is run out of a Lincoln town car, hence the moniker Lincoln Lawyer. And Connelly doesn’t shy away from several mentions that Haller had been portrayed in a movie—said movie being The Lincoln Lawyer starring Matthew McConaughey as Haller. Being not only a writer, but a prominent source of a Bosch TV series and a couple or more movies based on his books, Connelly embraces that with gusto, endearing his readers for he seems to be saying, “See. I know you saw the movie, so I’ll just use it in the plot.” What fun!

Michael Connelly is one of those writers' who is able to grab the reader's imagination with his first sentence: "I approached the witness stand with a warm and welcoming smile. This, of course, belied my true intent, which was to destroy the woman who sat there with her eyes fixed on mine." From this opening, Connelly's latest Mickey Haller book, THE GODS OF GUILT, weaves its way through a slalom-like plot that has Mickey and his team wending their way through multiple precarious scenarios as they build a defense for their latest client, a cyber-pimp known as Andre LaCosse.

Currently at odds with his daughter, who has distanced herself from her father following the death of a school friend and her mother at the hands of one of his clients, Mickey is experiencing more than a little personal angst over both this rift as well as the murder of a previous client named Gloria Dayton.

This is a tale brimming with a cast of dangerous players doing what they can to derail Mickey's case. It also offers an illuminating look at the mechanics of a legal system that has lawyers walking a fine line between seeking justice by finding the truth and just helping their clients "beat the rap".

While this is a realistic and perfectly pitched legal drama, never fear because there is more than enough excitement and action taking place outside the courtroom to keep the reader engrossed to the final page.

Final Observation: Defense can be a deadly sport if you're Mickey Haller and your client list is made up of the dregs of society.

It can have more than one meaning when it comes to this story. The guilt that's been placed on Mickey's client; the guilty actions the antagonists take to cover their tracks; or defense attorney Mickey Haller, who lost more than he's run for the DA's office after a former client gets in an accident. The public and his daughter vilified him. Eventually he comes across a client whose been arrested for murder and he wants Mickey representing him. The victim turned out to be Gloria Dayton, a prostitute Mickey had believed had gotten out of the life. He had represented her on multiple occasions in the past. Her suspected murderer is her pimp whom Mickey believes to be innocent and will do everything in his power to defend.

Out of all of The Lincoln Lawyer novels, believe this one to be the best so far. The title has an interesting meaning that I will let the reader enjoy on their own. This is Mickey Hall at his all time low. He's alienated his daughter, the public didn't want him for their district attorney and when things just might be getting better for Mr. Lucky, he will lose another soul he cares about.

This book is Michael Connelly at his best.
