The Fifth Witness ~~ Michael Connelly

The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly
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.

Mickey Haller is working with people fighting mortgage forclosures and is called to defend a client accused of murdering the banker who headed up the mortgage loan division responsible for forclosure actions against her home.

Mickey puts his efforts into clearing his client although he has doubts about her innocence. As the reader might expect with Michael Connelly, the novel is well written and the court scenes are like a tightly contested tennis match with one side winning pints and the other countering. Was this client guilty or set up? These are the questions.

Mickey Haller is an excellent character who shows the difficulty of earing a living and dealing with a difficult client. He manages his business and family life with constant emotional and financial difficulty common to many of us and thus becomes sympathetic and a character the reader wants to succeed.

Michael Connelly polishes off the novel with a wonderful ending.
