FIGURING OUT HOW OUR HERO MICHAEL HALLER WOULD PROVE THE INOCENSE OF HIS CLIENT AND WHAT THE LAST SAY WOULD BE AFTER HE GETS HER OFF. DID SHE DO IT OR NOT?
CISCO IS ALWAYS ENTERTAINING
I always love the audio version because it is so flexible for entertainment within my lifestyle.
I enjoy all the Mickey Haller books. I am a fan of Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch is also a great character.
I generally don't order audio books by Michael Connelly because of Peter Giles narration. I ordered The Fifth Witness because it was one of the special order offers from Audible. After listening to him in Brass Verdict, which was my first book narrated by Mr. Giles, I was so disappointed, I chose no more of them, planned to read them.
My attitude about this was not changed by listening to him again!!
His inflections are so out of character. Everything ends on an up note like a question. His voice is not strong enough to carry the hard driving character of a defense lawyer. He also does not carry off the different voices very well, they all sound like him, the female voices are more like his voice.
Yes, when the end was revealed and I turned out to have guessed right!!
Please find another narrator. I really enjoy these stories, but will not order another audio with this narration.
Sometimes the courtroom stories get a bit tedious, but not this one. It held my interest all the way through.
Similar to the Lincoln Layer, of course.
Peter Giles did a great job keeping the characters in context.
I like mysteries that give all the clues then bring the final ending together picking up the clues left along the way. I honestly didn't see the conclusion coming. None of the characters did predictible things to make the book more exciting, it was fun. The courtroom was a bit slow at times. But I highly recommend this one.
I enjoyed the intricate legal maneuvering and the interaction between diverse characters.
The plots twists and turns and keeps you guessing.
The scene when Haller realized his client was guilty.
Absolutely! Unfortunately, life gets in the way. Had to take occasional breaks.
Michael Connelly is a writer whose books grab you immediately. No slogging through several chapters waiting for the story to get going.
Perfect rainy day listen. Micky is back - trying gutsy twists to defend his client, hoping to reunite with Maggy, leading and instructing his defense team and reaching a life changing conclusion at the end of the tale. I enjoyed Micky's current adventure and look forward to Michael Connelly's next Micky Heller story.
Can you say Lincoln Lawyer Part 2 movie? Another great book by Connelly, and I have read them all. I only wish I had gotten it for the sale price!
Taken from current circumstances involving housing foreclosures, a good, quick story. MC never disappoints.
Realistic, emotional and suspenseful.
Based on the content and strong character development, this book compares favorably among the early John Grisham novels.
Haller was by far the best performed. His emotions were expressed strongly when read about his daughter and ex-wives.
The ending was surprising and satisfying.
Will look for more from this author and narrator.
