Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.
Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail.
Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in. Connelly proves again why he "may very well be the best novelist working in the United States today" (San Francisco Chronicle).

It is a good story. Enjoyed listening. It kept my interest. Yes it is similar to the Lincoln Lawyer. But still a good story. Fun to listen to. Liked the relationships of the main characters.
Yes for a light murder/ lawyer story.
Peter Giles brings enthusiasm and character to the role.
The end with ultimate justice for all. And they lived happily ever after.
I've read nearly all of Michael Connelly's books and have loved all of them. With Fifth Witness it has been another fun listen....A good plot, good characters.
Mickey Holler. Well developed. I also like Mickey's team of supporters: Chico in particular as he comes with an entire entourage....
How to ruin a good read by making it a movie......sorry, but is there anything finer than the brain creating the picture as you read/listen? No.
Easy listening, entertaining, enjoyable
The end...but I can't say what it is or it will spoil it for the future reader...
I enjoyed hearing about the manipulative acting by lawyers in a courtroom.
The Foreclosure Victim
really enjoy the combination of this author and actor...will continue to choose books with this combination.
