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.

A Great Legal Thriller

This novel held my attention from beginning to end, and it had a plausible ending. The story is very interesting which centers around the San Francisco Catholic Archdiocese, a sexual harassment suit, and a murder which is made to look like suicide. This is a very interesting and suspenseful story with well developed and interesting characters. This story had solid twists and turns that kept me listening wanting to know what will happen next.

The main characters, Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez (his ex-wife and law partner), are pressed into service when their friend, who is a priest, is caught in a circle of deception and is accused of murder. Mike feels obligated to defend him but as soon as forensics, witnesses, and secrets from the priest's past comes crashing down around them, a bad situation becomes worse.

Sam Guncler's narration is very very good. Especially his ability to switch between the supporting characters' dialogue, the protagonist's (Mike Daley) inner voice, and Daley's spoken words.

narration is excellent! Story is really good, too

I enjoyed the story & Sheldon Siegel's writing style. The narration by Sam Gunther was incredible. I was especially impressed with his ability to switch between Mike Daley's (the protagonist's) inner voice & spoken voice.
