Oh, and if you have tried to access my offer for a free copy of Diversion or another of my website-only offers in the last few weeks and were unable to because you got an error, it’s fixed now! Give it another try!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am currently reading The Gods of Guilt, book six in Michael Connelly’s Mickey Haller series. Mickey Haller is also known as “The Lincoln Lawyer.” Michael Connelly always satisfies with lots of tension, action, and legal twists and turns, and this one is no exception.

I was left sitting on the floor, surveying the damage. I had blood on my mouth and teeth and down the crisp white shirt I was wearing. My tie was on the floor under the defense table. It was the clip-on I wear on days I visit clients in holdings cells and don’t want to get pulled through the bars.

Michael Connelly, The Gods of Guilt

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.

  3. I haven’t read anything from this author, but it sounds like an entertaining read. I hope you’re enjoying it. My TT this week is a bit more mainstream… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/05/30/teaser-tuesday-30th-may-2017/

  4. Wondering how he ended up under the table. And the clip on tie sounds like a great idea given the circumstances. I haven’t tried these books yet, but I’m intrigued. My Teaser

  5. Under the defense table? So this is in the courtroom? Interesting. I’ve sort of avoided this series because I always think of legal thrillers and being not all that thrilling. Maybe I should rethink that. Great teaser!

    Here’s my last Teaser for May

  6. Whose blood is it? Curious now. I hope you enjoy the book.
