Publisher's Summary

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.

What made the experience of listening to The Gods of Guilt the most enjoyable?

I had a very long journey to complete and being able to listen so such a good book was a tremendous help. None of it was boring, I enjoyed every bit as the story unfolded, especially Mickey's solutions to problem. There are a lot of references to the first book, bringing back old characters and explaining what has become of them. You were rooting for the good guys to win all the way and the book didn't disappoint.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gods of Guilt?

His client is very different from the clients of previous books but I won't say why as it would be a spoiler. Needless to say, you'll understand if you've read the other books and read this book.

Have you listened to any of Peter Giles’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I'm not sure if I've heard him before but he was very good on this one.

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

I'd have happily listened to it in one sitting but it was a little too long to do that but I did finish it very quickly.

Any additional comments?

This'll be a book I'll listen to again and again.

Kept me interested

This book is certainly worth reading, I felt a little less sympathy for Mickey Haller than I have in previous books, somehow he started off by being a bit unpleasant, but seemed to improve in the course of the story. I need to be able to like the characters in a story.
The story was good and dealt with well. Overall I enjoyed the book
