The Fifth Witness | [Michael Connelly]

The Fifth Witness

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.

Publisher's Summary

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).

    I enjoyed hearing about the manipulative acting by lawyers in a courtroom.

    The Foreclosure Victim

    Story
    "enjoyed a great deal!"
    Where does The Fifth Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Would you recommend The Fifth Witness to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes for a light murder/ lawyer story.


    What does Peter Giles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Peter Giles brings enthusiasm and character to the role.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end with ultimate justice for all. And they lived happily ever after.
