Michael Connelly is the bestselling author of detective novels and crime fiction featuring “Harry” Bosch and Mickey Haller. This month his newest Mickey Haller novel “The Gods of Guilt” was released.
In “The Gods of Guilt” criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller is back running his practice from the back of his Lincoln Town Car after almost becoming District Attorney. Murder cases have always been his favorite and now he is asked to defend Andre La Cosse who is a pimp accused of killing a former client of Mickey’s. Gloria Dayton was a prostitute he thought he had helped get out of the life but it turned out she was back in town and back to her old life. Worst of all it might have been him who put her in danger in the first place.
Now he is being haunted by the ghosts of his past which could drastically affect his career and future. He not only discovers that Andre may not be guilty but the case involves a possibly corrupt DEA agent, a cartel thug and other questionable characters. The tile comes from Mickey’s Haller’s opinion of the jury as being Gods of guilt.
Michael Connelly’s books have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into numerous languages. “The Lincoln Lawyer” was his first legal thriller and introduced the literary world to Mickey Haller. It was turned into a movie starring Matthew McConaughey as Haller in 2011.
