5.0 out of 5 stars Connnelly continues to impress with an enthralling piece of crime fiction
The Gods of Guilt marks the fifth appearance of straight-talking defence lawyer Mickey Haller. He is the half-brother of LAPD officer Harry Bosch, who appears in previous novel "Black Box". The author rotates the characters well.It is interesting to find out how the characters differ in terms of personality. The approach of handling cases is interesting to explore.The...

3.0 out of 5 stars Hung Verdict on this book
I have a hung verdict on this book and so I am giving it 3 stars.
I found the first half of the book sluggish and not particularly well written. I am a big Michael Connelly fan and it pains me to say that I found the writing very simplistic and not descriptive or evocative. It just tells the story. That is not enough for me when you consider the superlative writing...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gods of Guilt,
Excellent, more of these court room dramas required please this has kept me up late to find out how achieved.
5.0 out of 5 stars worth the wait,
The pace of this novel races from beginning to end. It's a breathless ride, straddling law, humanity, advocacy and characters who are real in their human failings. My only problem is of my own making. This book kept me busy all yesterday and today. I'm tired and gave eyes train and wouldn't have it any other way.
4.0 out of 5 stars The God's of Guilt,
Again,well written by a lawyer who suffered a life changing car accident, returning from a jail, where he had been interviewing an
inmate, for a crime he was framed for. On his way back to jail, to B seriously assaulted in a court holding cell, by another prisoner.

4.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT,
Another cracker from Connelly!! Was expecting another twist towards the end but still a stunning read and refreshing to get into after so much other tosh out there. Not the best Haller book that's out there but still worth a read. Can't wait for November and the new Bosch book!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Another great crime story from Michael Connelly.,
I thought I was going to miss Boesch too much to appreciate another protagonist, but I was totally convinced by Mickey Haller and greatly enjoyed this recent work of Connelly's.
It is very well written, with a tightly constructed plot and plenty of tension.
4.0 out of 5 stars Haller at his best,
I chose a 4star rating as the story has a natural direction but that does not take away the enjoyment of the tail. As usual with Connelly the side characters take shape and you feel as if you know them and hope they do not get hurt. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Warms up slowly.,
I really enjoy Michael Connelly books but this one takes a long time to really get going. It's the usual Micky Haller fare with a good cast of characters and a reasonably complex plot. Not a page turner but anyone who enjoys court room drama will enjoy this.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book with Connelly at his sharpest yet,
Excellent book with Connelly at his sharpest yet. Twists and turns kept me hooked. Haller isn't always the most likeable character, yet the reader finds themselves shouting his corner. I sincerely hope they make another film of this "Lincoln Lawyer".
5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Connolly is my favourite crime author,
I chose the 5star rating because 1.characters are believable 2.excellent storyline. 3.names are realistic. 4.written with accelerated pace. 5.humour added for the reality feel. Therefore the 5 stars..........
