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).
Comments to eBook The Fifth Witness (A Lincoln Lawyer Novel)
Michael Connelly just made me a fiction fan again. I normally read non-fiction (history, political-economics) and sometimes historical fiction here and there....but I have read my share of fiction in the past, and still make sure to read a classic here and there. I did read his book "The Lincoln Lawyer" which I thought was okay (I give it a 6.5 or 7 on a scale of 1 to 10). But I saw this book was highly-recommended, and thought I'd give him another shot. Boy, am I glad I did. This is one of the best novels I've ever read. I am an attorney, and a former criminal defense attorney, and the novel had me riveted. I think he had a few things incorrect (the standard of proof in a Preliminary Hearing is not Preponderance of Evidence, but rather, Probable Cause") but this and other very minor quibbles do not detract from this. It was rather heavy on courtroom narrative and following, blue-print like, the structure of a trial (opening statement, then prosecutions witness after witness, then defense's witness after witness, and the expected ups and downs)...but that's why I bought the book: I wanted to see some true-to-life court legalities---and it was very entertaining and realistic. All I can say is when I was finished, I thrust it upon my wife, insisting that she read it immediately. And I will be reading another of his books as soon as possible.
I'm not much a legal drama guy or so I thought until I read all three of the preceding Mickey Haller books. With The Fifth Witness, I guess I am now really into this genre or maybe it's Connelly's writing. I enjoyed the others in the series but this one was right in my wheel house. Not only does the bossy and borderline unlikeable female teacher strike a cord with me but the seemingly all too real scenario of her being accused of murdering someone who could be responsible for her home foreclosure feel a little too close to home. By the time I was halfway through with this, I was committed to not only the story but to the characters (something that happened to me in the Bosch series).

If you're looking at this for a one time read - you're in good shape having not read the others. But if you think you're going to enjoy it, why not start with the first of the series? If you're going to take a ride with The Lincoln Lawyer - you might as well go the distance. Alright, alright, alright!
This a novel about a situation that developed during the past decade in which homes were undergoing fore closer at a record rate. This left many people very upset at losing their home but there was also much money to be made by the companies that were contracted to do the fore closing. Mickey Haller defends a fore closed home owner of murdering a banker thought to be involved in her losing her home. Learning that the manager of the fore closing organization is about to be accused of fraud by the banker and there by lose millions of dollars Mickey finds a new motive to have the banker killed. This leads to an exciting court room battle that will find the reader not wanting to put the novel down.
Good story. Connelly is very good at fleshing out his characters thoroughly and putting together an interesting plot. What strikes me the most about the Lincoln Lawyer series, however, is how flawed our legal system is. Yes, it's better than what a lot of countries have, but that might not be saying a lot. What we have is games between prosecution and defense, much that is relevant that is withheld from the jury for one reason or another, and juries that are expected to decide whether someone is guilty or innocent based on legal posturing and insufficient, sometimes erroneous information. This is, of course, exaggerated in fictional writing but maybe not by much. Bottom line: Enjoy the book but live your life of crime vicariously and steer clear of the law.
I really enjoyed this book as I did the others that I have read, including the Harry Bosch series. I only have one problem. To this day I don't know what Mickey Haller looks like. In this specific book there is one reference in passing that talks abut his dark looks. What does that mean?

Harry Bosch's physical appearance is a mystery. Only in the first books of this series when he was a young man was he described, but from there onwards, he is just a body.

Come. Mr Connelly, show your main characters' eyes and faces.
In the back of my mind, I was giving Michael Connelly's "The Fifth Witness" a five-star rating as I was reading it. This, to me, was another successful Lincoln Lawyer novel, filled with loops and great courtroom drama. Then I got to the last ten pages. I had to drop two stars. Two things happened at the very conclusion that just did not fit. ****SPOILER ALERT****DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU ARE GOING TO READ THIS BOOK!**** First, the killer, for some reason, reveals the truth. Why? I mean, it did not fit the way the killer had been acting before! Second, Michael Haller, telepathically it seems, knows where a dead body is. How? I don't think I missed any clues or anything. If I had, I don't think it was my fault. I hated to change my star value for the book, but the conclusion was just too quick and too out of left field. In fact, it was from another stadium.
