The Fifth Witness Pdf Summary Reviews By Michael Connelly

The Fifth Witness Pdf 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.


The Fifth Witness Review



4.0 out of 5 stars Haller brilliantly defends a client he doesn’t like

The Fifth Witness is as tense, dramatic, and well written as the other two books I’ve read so far in this series. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because I didn’t like the personality of Haller’s client, Lisa Trammel. Haller doesn’t like her either, but believes everyone accused of anything deserves a defense. And she might, after all, be innocent.

The story takes place at a time when mortgage foreclosures were rampant. Haller has mostly switched from defending criminals to fighting foreclosures. Lisa is one of his foreclosure clients, and then becomes an even more needy client. She’s accused of murdering the banker involved in her foreclosure.

I’m afraid I found foreclosures less riveting than some of the other themes in the Mickey Haller books.

But Haller’s personal life adds spice to the plot. I’ll have to move on to the next book to see how that resolves.

The maverick L.A. lawyer who uses his Lincoln town car as an office now is specializing in “foreclosure defense.” Haller’s first foreclosure client, Lisa Trammel, is fighting hard to keep her home, maybe too hard. The bank has gotten a restraining order to stop Trammel’s protests, and she becomes the prime suspect when Mitchell Bondurant, a mortgage banker, is killed with a hammer in his office parking lot. A ton of evidence points to Trammel, but Haller crafts an impressive defense that includes “the fifth witness” of the title.

Michael Connelly Author Of The Fifth Witness pdf Book decided to become a writer after discovering the books of Raymond Chandler while attending the University of Florida. Once he decided on this direction he chose a major in journalism and a minor in creative writing — a curriculum in which one of his teachers was novelist Harry Crews.

After graduating in 1980, Connelly worked at newspapers in Daytona Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, primarily specializing in the crime beat.

They wrote a magazine story on the crash and the survivors which was later short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. The magazine story also moved Connelly into the upper levels of journalism, landing him a job as a crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, one of the largest papers in the country, and bringing him to the city of which his literary hero, Chandler, had written.

After three years on the crime beat in L.A., Connelly began writing his first novel to feature LAPD Detective Hieronymus Bosch. The novel, The Black Echo, based in part on a true crime that had occurred in Los Angeles, was published in 1992 and won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by the Mystery Writers of America. Connelly has followed that up with over 30 more novels.

Over eighty million copies of Connelly’s books have sold worldwide and he has been translated into forty-five foreign languages. He has won the Edgar Award, Anthony Award, Macavity Award, Los Angeles Times Best Mystery/Thriller Award, Shamus Award, Dilys Award, Nero Award, Barry Award, Audie Award, Ridley Award, Maltese Falcon Award (Japan), .38 Caliber Award (France), Grand Prix Award (France), Premio Bancarella Award (Italy), and the Pepe Carvalho award (Spain) .
