A solid popcorn novel. ( )
  auldhouse | Sep 30, 2021 |
The Fifth Witness is an excellent story about guilt and innocence. The Lincoln Lawyer has some very hard decisions to make. The book is highly recommended for a good Los Angeles centered suspense story. The book received a solid four stars in this review. ( )

Business for attorney Mickey Haller has degenerated to stopping bank foreclosures and fighting predatory bank practices until a female client is arrested for murdering a bank lending executive with a hammer, even though she was winning her legal battle. Using his usual team and a new associate, Mickey wages war with the prosecutor and pushes the judge to the limit as well while trying to convince his ex-wife Maggie to give it another go. Tight, suspenseful, with a lame surprise at the end. ( )

Old reviews went missing. How does save not working?

Great series. Where did my review go. I love this series! ( )

Reviewing a [a:Michael Connelly|12470|Michael Connelly|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1539114448p2/12470.jpg] novel almost feels unfair. His books sail along so smoothly, so seemingly effortlessly, and they are of such a high quality, that it's easy to take for granted how hard that is to actually pull off consistently. Compared with many other mainstream mystery authors, Connelly is just such a pro. I don't think this particular novel is his best (the courtroom machinations started to drag a bit, for me, at some point), but it's still at the very top of the genre in general. ( )

With The Fifth Witness it’s beginning to seem that Connelly can do no wrong. This latest novel is as shamelessly entertaining as its predecessors, with the customary skilful plotting even more burnished.

As well as making some telling points about the world we live in this is a reminder that in the crime fiction stakes Connelly is comfortably in the upper bracket.
 
“With me, it’s don’t ask, don’t tell,” Mickey tells the starry-eyed Bullock, who wonders why this junkyard dog never asks his client if she’s innocent. Though the answer isn’t as mysterious as you might like, the courtroom scenes—thrust, parry, struggle for every possible advantage—are grueling enough for the most exacting connoisseur of legal intrigue.
