The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly

Defense attorney Mickey Haller is handling mostly foreclosure cases right now because of the downturn in the economy. When Lisa Trammel, one of his clients, is accused of murdering Mitchell Bondurant, Mickey agrees to defend her. Bondurant was a vice president at the bank that held Lisa's mortgage. In fact, Lisa had held numerous protests at the bank and there was a restraining order against her. The prosecution feels they have enough evidence to convict Lisa, but Mickey and his team delve into Lisa's, Bondurant's, and the bank's backgrounds in order to present a case to the jury. The Fifth Witness is the fourth book to feature Mickey Haller and is actually the best of the lot, focusing on Mickey's preparation for the trial and the trial itself. A page-turning legal thriller.
