Book review: The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly

What can I say? Mr. Connelly writes predictably satisfying legal thrillers, especially if like me, you prefer the legal part of that genre. I really like these Lincoln Lawyer books starring Mickey Haller. He has started doing a lot of foreclosure defense work, given the economy (the only real growth area for lawyers in the downturn). One of his more annoying clients, who is up in arms about the legal shenanigans of her bank, is accused of murdering the banker she holds responsible for her troubles. Naturally Haller, whose specialty is criminal defense, takes on her case. Meanwhile he has hired the first-ever associate for "Michael Haller and Associates" and might be getting an office. Could it be that our Lincoln Lawyer is settling down?

I borrowed this book from my father. He bought it in Germany, I think based on the pricetag. It's the UK edition.
