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).

    "Lincoln Lawyer Settles Down"

    Pretty good tale but not as edgy as Lincoln Lawyer but still ok. Still, it's far better than the recent Bosh novels.

    "Courtroom Drama"

    This book was surprisingly good. I was kind of amazed on how I got into the courtroom drama so quickly and the story kept my interest all the way till the end. I never read anything from Michael Connelly before. I liked how he incorporated our current economical status at people loosing their homes due to foreclosure and the courtroom process of the main character being accused for murder. After finishing this book, it makes me want to read more of his other titles.

    Story
    "Fills the Time if you Have Nothing Else"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would only recommend this book for a light summer read or in a pinch. Story was adequate. The author repeats or expands upon basic details to such lengths that I almost quit the book a few times but didn't have anything else lined up in the queue to listen.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Connelly again?

    Possibly.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Peter Giles?

    The narrator read the book like a movie trailer which was very distracting from the story and nauseating at times.


    Was The Fifth Witness worth the listening time?

    Not really worth the time listening too.

    "this should be made into a movie"

    This was really good. maybe the best one yet. Buy this book if you like lawer crime novels and you will not be disapointed.

    "Fifth Witness...wow!!!"
    Where does The Fifth Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great read....almost as good as a James Patterson novel....he is...in my opinion...the best!!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This story kept you on the edge as you never knew who was lurching in the shadows.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Giles’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first listen to Peter Giles and it did not disappoint!
