Libro: The gods of guilt

The gods of guilt
Michael Connelly
Portada: Craig Fraser
Edita Orion Books
1ª edición de bolsillo en Gran Bretaña: 2014
467 páginas

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. The Gods of Guilt shows once again why "Michael Connelly excels, easily surpassing John Grisham in the building of courtroom suspense" (Los Angeles Times).

Cuando aposté por Michael Connelly hace años no era muy conocido, no tenía el nombre y prestigio de otros autores, pero no me fallado en ninguno de sus libros, ya sea de Harry Bosch o de Michael Haller como es este.

Es impresionante lo de este hombre.
Y el mes que viene está anunciado un nuevo libro, The burning room, esta vez con el detective Harry Bosch.
