Book review of the day: The Fifth Witness

You can help. Send your book review to books@whaleoil.co.nz and we will put it up when it is your turn. Please set your submission out with the name of the book, then the author and then describe in your own words what the book is about. Also if you happen to be a commenter please include your username.

This year we are going to review books daily until the reviews run out. By doing this for individual books this gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once like we have done in previous years.

Each post is set out as comprehensively as possible with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Ginny

The Fifth Witness

By Michael Connelly

Ginny said: “It is a long time since I have finished a book. This one I finished easily. Michael Haller defends a woman on a murder charge. The victim was employed by a bank which was foreclosing on this woman’s home mortgage. A really good twist at the end.”

Amazon said: “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. ”
