Publisher's Summary

Confessions abound - some of them quite unexpected - in Sheldon Siegel's legal thriller, the fifth in the outstanding Mike Daley/Rosie Fernandez series set in San Francisco.
Mike Daley doesn't go to confession much since he left the priesthood twenty years ago and became a lawyer, but that doesn't stop his old friend, Father Ramon Aguirre, from trying to get him there. "It wouldn't kill you to go to church once in a while," he tells Mike. But it does kill someone.
For several months, a ruinous sexual harassment suit has been building against the San Francisco Catholic Archdiocese, and when the plaintiff's lawyer is found dead, an apparent suicide, an almost audible sigh of relief is heard in certain quarters. But that is before the police find evidence of murder. Even worse - the evidence points to Father Aguirre.
Mike and his ex-wife law partner, Rosie, jump in to take the priest's case, but what started out as difficult soon appears impossible as forensics, witnesses, and secrets from Father Aguirre's past all incriminate their client. Soon, their wits are the only things keeping the priest from a life sentence or worse, and wits simply may not be enough-unless they can conjure up a miracle of their own.
Of Siegel's most recent book, Publishers Weekly said, "The verdict is clear; another win for Siegel." And so it is again with The Confession.

Most Helpful

Predictable but still enjoyable.

Would you listen to The Confession again? Why?

Not in its current state. The sound quality is woeful, unpredictable and frankly annoying.

What did you like best about this story?

I quite like the abrupt ending. It makes a change interesting when you have committed to the entire series.

Would you be willing to try another one of Sam Guncler’s performances?

I would try to avoid

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I find it frustrating when a series has a different narrator for EVERY book. We become invested in these audiobooks giving up hundreds of hours so it gets annoyingly confusing when the voice, previously associated with a character, changes.

The sound quality was WOEFUL throughout this book.

The Best One Thus Far!

I have listened to all of the audiobooks in this series - 4 out of 5. It appears as if number 4 is not available to us in the UK as an audiobook, which is a shame, because they are all atypical so you can't guess the formula and that's Great!

This is my favourite, but I hope that the next one will be my favourite too, and the one after that, the best, and the one after that…

If you haven't read any of the others, search for the first one: Special Circumstances. You'll love it & get hooked!
