The Fifth Witness

By Michael Connelly (Trade Paperback, 2011)
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).

  • "The idea that Connelly is very good comes as no surprise, but the consistency of his excellence is remarkable, given that he's publishing two books a year right now. I picked up The Fifth Witness one night last week, intending just to get a feel for the story, and found I couldn't put it down until I'd finished it more than five hours later."
    (Los Angeles Times).

  • This is Connelly at his thought-provoking best."

  • "Once Connelly has you on board, turning the pages, you won't want to climb off. As popular entertainment goes, it doesn't get much better than this."

  • "I've said many times that Connelly continues to show why he is one of the best - and most consistent - living crime writers. 'The Fifth Witness' adds evidence to the case."
