    One thought on “The Fifth Witness”

    1. Oh, Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey!No, I don't mean Mickey Haller, I mean Michael "Mickey" Connelly. I prefer the Harry Bosch series, as the Haller series tends toward long courtroom scenes. But really, I just love Connelly. His homework and legwork and writing quality and plot complexity are so far superior to others in the genre. I recommend avoiding detailed reviews of this book. There's some exquisitely skillful misdirection in the story, and if you happe [...]

    2. I'm on a Michael Connelly/Micky Haller roll right now. I picked up THE FIFTH WITNESS while on vacation and stayed up late the other night to finish it. Not to worry, I went to bed satisfied.Once again, Michael Connelly excels in courtroom drama. What continues to amaze is how well Connelly thoroughly understands the Criminal Justice System, which actually is neither a system nor about justice. It's about who can best entertain a jury with their magic show and sleight of hand, which is often only [...]

    3. I honestly can't believe how many 4 and 5 star reviews this book has gotten so far.I've read nearly everything that Connelly has written, and read most of them in very quick succession. I hate to be one of those internet extremists who either ABSOLUTELY LOVES something, or declares it THE WORST THING EVER, but yeah. This is about the worst book Connelly has ever written.First, it seems rather obvious that Connelly wanted a Mickey Haller novel out around the same time as the big screen version of [...]

    4. In a difficult economy, the criminal defense business is not all that it used to be and so Mickey Haller, the Lincoln Lawyer, is reduced to defending clients who are about to lose their homes to foreclosure. One of his clients, a not very pleasant woman named Lisa Trammel is not content simply to let Mickey wage the legal battle on her behalf. She begins her own campaign on line and in the streets to defend herself and others against what she perceives to be the villainy of the greedy bankers wh [...]

    5. It's the middle of the housing crisis and tough times for lawyers. Criminal defense attorney Mickey Haller, ever the opportunist and survivor, has shifted his practice to handle clients under foreclosure. When one of them is arrested for the murder of the banker who's started foreclosure procedures on her home, Mickey finds himself handling a high profile case that becomes a potential beacon for all those disenfranchised homeowners facing displacement. This was all courtroom drama and psychologi [...]

    6. I actually am a trial lawyer specializing in homicide cases. I've done over twenty murder trials on both sides, so I probably should just stop reading these kinds of books because I always find procedural and legal errors that annoy me and then I annoy everyone else by pointing them out and complaining about them. A disclaimer here: no on will watch any of the CSi or Law and Order shows with me anymore. Most common response I get: "it's just fiction, get over it.". So, I'm not going to nit-pick [...]

    7. More of a 3.5 since there are some major twists & turns, but the title character's moment was a bit weak & there were major pacing issues - probably that's why the moment was weak. The court room scenes dragged while other parts, especially the end, jumped in time & blazed by - almost outlines. I'm sure the court scenes were realistic, but a bit too much so. Asking the sames questions is various ways got very old very fast, especially for the minor points. I've noticed Connelly's wri [...]

    8. I basked in the pleasure of riding again with Mickey Haller, known as the” Lincoln Lawyer” because of keeping an office in his car. As much as I love most Connelly’s series with Detective Harry Bosch, I was glad not to have the dllution of focus be having both on the caper in this one (which was the case in “The Brass Verdict” and “The Reversal”). Here Haller takes on the case of a woman in the process of foreclosure accused of bludgeoning to death a banker behind taking her home. [...]

    9. Mickey Haller's criminal defense practice has slowed, so he has been working with people whose homes are being foreclosed. When one of his new clients, Lisa Trammel, is accused of murdering Mitchell Boudorant, the banker who is trying to take away her home, Mickey takes her case. With evidence pointing at his client, Mickey and his team have an uphill battle to craft a believable defense.This book takes us from the arrest, through the collection of evidence, the preliminary hearing, a courtroom [...]

    10. Good series! a more dramatic storylinelots of courtroom antics plus lawyer stuff then it ended with a plot twistwell written (paperback!)

    11. Un thriller giudiziario che mi ha preso ma che consiglio solo agli appassionati del genere (io lo sono, ovviamente). Per gli altri potrebbe risultare un po' noioso, dato che si svolge per lo più in tribunale. Tra schermaglie, trucchi e trucchetti dell'accusa e della difesa, si impara qualcosina sul funzionamento del sistema giudiziario USA.Ho trovato un MISTERO. Leggete questo brano:Conosci Shéhérazade? Musica classica, di Ravel, credo. La eseguono ogni anno all’Hollywood Bowl.»Due paia di [...]

    12. Surprise, surprise, surprise! No surprise to me that this was a 'blow me away' book since I've loved each and every one of the Mickey Haller series but there were surprises throughout this book. And the end, well there was a surprise on each of the last ten pages. I knew that other reviewers said there was a surprise ending, but with each one, I didn't think there could be another one. They just kept coming page after page.Publishers Weekly stated "The plot is worthy of a master storyteller." Wh [...]

    13. I guess the streak of great books by Michael Connelly had to end sometime. After the last several books just owned me, demanding my undivided time and attention, the latest legal thriller by Connelly was kind of a disappointment for me. I don't mean to say it was a terrible book or not worth the time. It just wasn't up the standard his last few books have set.But the good thing about Connelly is he's so prolific that within six months we'll have a new novel to read and hopefully get that streak [...]

    14. I love few things in life, my wife, as always, being NUMBER 1. That said, I may develop a reader's bromance with Mr. Connelly if his books, especially Mickey Haller, continue to be this good. Connelly takes a great topic (a la 'torn from the headlines, Law & Order') in forclosures and mortgage fraud and spins it into a great legal thriller. LOVE IT!We learn a little more about Mickey after his flirt with the 'other side' in THE REVERSAL, and see that while times are tough, Mickey can still d [...]

    15. nah not for me. although i did enjou lincoln lawyer, but the fifth witness is using the same plot as lincoln lawyer. maybe because i am not familiar with usa justice system making it harder for me to enjoy this book. basically, michael saves the day.

    16. Everything I dislike about legal thrillers is front and center in this well written novel from acclaimed cop writer Michael Connelly, and that I read it is both a tribute to the fact that I like Connelly's Bosch series of books so well and that he can sure spin a good tale. Eventually, however, when the story revolves around the outcome of a trial, and especially a criminal trial for murder, there can only be two possible outcomes and its not whether the actual person being defended is guilty. T [...]

    17. So this was a really great installment of the Lincoln Lawyer series. Sometimes Connelly gets a little too meta for me though (talking about Matthew McConaughey and who would play Mickey Haller in a movie starring him) but that wasn't too annoying for me. I think the biggest reason I can gush about this one, is that if you read this and "The Gods of Guilt" back to back the development or spiraling of Haller's character was wonderful to read. We also get a pop up of Bosch in this one. Seriously th [...]

    18. This weak book by Connelly is still better than an average book by other authors. I enjoyed it in spite of the flawsORY BRIEF:The bank is foreclosing on Lisa’s home. Bondurant, a bank executive is murdered. Lisa is the accused. Haller defends her. The title refers to a witness taking the fifth – refusing to answer questions which may imply guilt to a juryVIEWER’S OPINION:This was ok, not his best, but good. It kept my interest. There’s a lot of courtroom time which was ok as an audiobook [...]

    19. As I finished this book a few days ago I had another one of those writer moments where I realized just what "pro" means, and what "bestseller" means. Connelly characterizes any and all descriptive terms a person could use for an author/craftsman. He masterfully injects himself into his work on every level and the result is a very strong voice made even better by his high skill level. As I wrote a few weeks ago when I started this book, it's ALL there, everything a reader or writer could want in [...]

    20. Bosch makes a cameo appearance as Haller’s half-brother, for what purpose I could not ascertain. I like Connelly very much, especially the Harry Bosch series, and I liked Lincoln Lawyer, which featured Mickey Haller, the lawyer who operates from the backseat of a Lincoln. This book seemed a bit “off” although it may have been the narrator, Peter Giles, who was certainly not as accomplished as Adam Grupper.Haller has made mortgage foreclosure cases a specialty (Connelly expounds at length a [...]

    21. Mind boggling and one of the best courtroom dramas you'll ever read, with Mickey Haller. Lisa Trammel, a jilted home foreclosure client accused of murdering the bank's loan officer. Holy cow this one was good. Without giving it away, I was very impressed with the characters involved, the strategies used in the courtroom and the doubt seeded. It is no wonder why defense attorneys charge so much for their services. If you get someone like Mickey Haller, he's worth every single penny. Brilliant, br [...]

    22. This, the 4th in the Mickey Haller series was gripping! Mickey's client, Lisa Trammel, has been accused of murdering Mitchell Bondurant, the bank executive she blames for trying to take her house from her. With so many people unable to pay their mortgages, the forecloser business is booming, and Lisa is in the middle of it. The twists and turns in this case, while each side tries to prove whether Lisa killed Mitchell or not, will keep you on the edge of your seat. Surprise witnesses, shocking re [...]

    23. Truly excellent. He really got the pace of the courtroom right and kept the hints in the right framework. I know many do not rate this as highly as The Lincoln Lawyer. However, I think it is every bit as good and maybe better.

    24. Reading a Michael Connelly book is a win win deal. Mickey Haller is a favoriye character like Harry Bosch. Another great court room drama. Mickey is intelligent, owns a courtroom, his staff the least likely of characters and I imagine him to be easy on the eyes. If you haven't read this series, give it a try!

    25. Meh. This one was kinda bloated. I thought the ending was brilliant though.3 stars.Side note: none of these books are earth-shatteringly good. So why can't I stop reading them??

    26. 9/10This is the best Mickey Haller book I've read. I think it just beats the first one, "The Lincoln Lawyer" just by a fraction. It was a great read with decent characters which I've grown to know over the previous 3 books in the series. Mickey is a clever and witty lead who holds your interest in what's going on and his team and minor characters back him up well. The woman he's defending is a pain in the rear but it works well as that is the way her character is supposed to be. You're supposed [...]

    27. STANDARDDopo tante recensioni particolari, in cui ho descritto soprattutto le emozioni che mi hanno procurato i libri, per una volta cambio stile. Scrivo una recensione standard (se ci riesco). Connelly, oltre ad essere un ottimo scrittore, è laureato in ingegneria, quindi questa sarà una recensione "per ingegneri". Molto schematica. Almeno finché resisto. Ne approfitto intanto per protestare contro le poche stelle con cui si possono valutare i libri e per farvi ripassare un po' di matematica [...]

    28. First Sentence: Mrs. Pena looked across the seat at me and held up her hands in a beseeching manner. Attorney Mickey Haller has left defense law and has been spending his time defending homeowners against banks and agencies threatening to foreclose on their homes. One of his clients, Lisa Trammel, started marching in front of the bank who held her paper, to the point where they took out a restraining order against her being within 50 feet of the banks offices. When Mickey receives a call that Li [...]

    29. Great legal thriller and a real nail-biter all the way to the end. I don't usually go for courtroom mysteries, but Michael Connelly is the exception. Mickey Haller managed to make a bunch of enemies, both in and out of the justice system, so the followup book should be great.

    30. A pure courtroom drama and I was so happy to read this 500 page tome. I think this is my favorite book from the series. I am sure Connelly will write more, but it's sad that now there's only one more book in the series left for me to read. Ohd I loved that nod to Matthew McConaughey as Haller in the Hollywood adaptation of the first book. Is a sequel of The Lincoln Lawyer in the works?
