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.

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.

Would you listen to The Confession again? Why?
Not in its current state. The sound quality is woeful, unpredictable and frankly annoying.
What did you like best about this story?
I quite like the abrupt ending. It makes a change interesting when you have committed to the entire series.
Would you be willing to try another one of Sam Guncler’s performances?
I would try to avoid
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I find it frustrating when a series has a different narrator for EVERY book. We become invested in these audiobooks giving up hundreds of hours so it gets annoyingly confusing when the voice, previously associated with a character, changes.<br/><br/>The sound quality was WOEFUL throughout this book.
I have listened to all of the audiobooks in this series - 4 out of 5. It appears as if number 4 is not available to us in the UK as an audiobook, which is a shame, because they are all atypical so you can't guess the formula and that's Great!
This is my favourite, but I hope that the next one will be my favourite too, and the one after that, the best, and the one after that…
If you haven't read any of the others, search for the first one: Special Circumstances. You'll love it & get hooked!
