The Fifth Witness by Michael Connelly

A long-time fan of Michael Connelly's, I have come to expect, and accept, the necessity of an installment that bridges the gap from one part of a character's life to a new phase and direction for that character. The Fifth Witness serves just such a purpose. Mickey Haller takes on a difficult client when his heart is on the precipice of being fully ready for a dramatic career change. The courtroom drama doesn't disappoint but moves a little slower than the pace I've come to expect from Connelly. Despite that, everything comes together in the end for a dramatic close and the promise of even better things to come. I'm looking forward to starting the next one and discovering what is in store for defense darling (or not), Mickey Haller.
