THE FIFTH WITNESS
A Lincoln Lawyer Novel
by Michael Connelly


New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly's acclaimed thrillers starring "Lincoln Lawyer" Mickey Haller inspired a major motion picture.  The fourth novel in the series, The Fifth Witness, finds the L.A.-based lawyer using the economic downturn to his advantage.

With so many homes in foreclosure these days, Haller has turned the back of his Lincoln town car into a foreclosure defense office.  His first client, Lisa Trammel, has WestLand National Bank attempting to take her house.  But the case takes an unexpected turn when the bank's representative is found murdered in a parking garage and Haller's client is accused of the crime.

"Combining ripped-from-the-headlines information on the mortgage crisis with a cast of characters that defies stereotypes at every turn of the plot, Connelly shows once again that he will never simply ride the wave of past success." - Booklist, starred review

THE FIFTH WITNESS
WINNER OF THE HARPER LEE PRIZE FOR LEGAL FICTION


Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times.  Criminal defense in Los Angeles has virtually dried up, and he has had to expand his business into foreclosure defense.  But just when Mickey thinks criminal court is in his rearview mirror, one of his new clients is accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home.

For Mickey, it's back to what he does best.  He puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, despite what seems to be a mountain of evidence against her and his own suspicions that his client is guilty.  His digging reveals that the murdered banker was involved in dirty dealings of his own.  After two professional thugs put Mickey in the hospital, he knows he's on the right trail.  Now, despite the growing danger, the lawyer is ready to mount the best defense of his career.

"EXCELLENT... A ROUSING LEGAL THRILLER."

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
