"The Gods of Guilt" is the most recent title in Michael Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer series. Per usual, protagonist Mickey Haller takes a licking and comes up still ticking.

Connelly's character, the Lincoln Lawyer has become boring, and the plot and storyline predictable. Haller defends a murder suspect where there's introduced prostitution solicitation online, controlled via a computer guru, in a pseudo pimp role. Included is the overall duties and activities of trial lawyers(prosecution & defense), the court room procedures, jury, judge and their interactions at a trail

The gods of guilt ---- by Micheal Connelly - C- 2014 ---- Great story! ---- Mr. Connelly did some house cleaning and has me waiting for the next story. The new storyline should be really interesting. ----- Enjoy! ---- RichardPaul (finished 3-17-2014) Five Stars!!

Everybody has a jury, the voices they carry inside. Earl Briggs sits on my jury, Gloria Dayton, too. They are there with Katie and Sandy, my mother, my father, and soon Legal Siegel as well. Those I have loved and those I have hurt. Those who bless me and those who haunt me. My gods of guilt. Every day I carry on and I carry them close. Every day I step into the well before them and I argue my case.”
