The Fifth Witness

Book: The Fifth Witness
Series: Mickey Haller #4
Author: 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.

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.-Goodreads

Review: This is a weird one to review. On one hand, I absolutely loved the case and how the murder played out. I definitely did not see that coming. On the other hand, I felt like Mickey didn't have much of a defense strategy and his announcement that he was running for DA at the end of the book seemed really out of character. Overall, still enjoying the series. 

Grade: 3/5
