    After the presidents' helicopter, Marine One, goes down in a brutal thunderstorm, the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter, accusing them of killing the president. Senate investigations and Justice Department accusations multiply as Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney in civilian life, is hired to defend the company from the criminal investigations and a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America.

    Ron says: "Great courtroom thriller"
    "Very enjoyable listen."

    Story
    What did you like best about Marine One? What did you like least?

    Fascinating premise. Good look into the FAA crash investigation process. Also revealing look at civil suit process. What I liked least was several plot points and characters were not resolved well by book's end.


    If you’ve listened to books by James W. Huston before, how does this one compare?

    First Huston read. Will not be the last.


    What three words best describe Joe Barrett’s voice?

    Adequate. Entertaining. Average.


    Could you see Marine One being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I would recast it with Grisham's the Rainmaker. Matt Damon as the lead attorney and Jon Voight as the sleazy civil attorney.


    Any additional comments?

    My family listened to this book on a trip. Everyone enjoyed it.

    Story

    No one was aware of the storm's sudden force. Not the Hurricane Hunter crew trapped in its center. Not the family marooned on a resort island while searching for their missing teen. A deadly Category Five hurricane has never hit the Georgia coast in modern times. Until now. No one predicted the storm's sudden force. A crippled Air Force recon plane, trapped in the eye of a violent hurricane. An outspoken tropical weather forecaster, fired from his network TV job before he can issue a warning: the storm is changing course and intensifying.

    What did you like best about Eyewall? What did you like least?

    Action surrounding the Hurricane Hunter aircraft was riveting, palpable. Good descriptions of St. Simons Island also. Author may need to flesh out his characters a bit more. But all in all a very entertaining listen. I intend to watch for his next 2 novels Dr. Bernard is working on.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have worked less with the meteorological data explanations and built more backstory into the characters.


    What about Marshall Seese’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyed it. Good characterizations.


    Do you think Eyewall needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think a sequel is appropriate. Author tied up most of the character loose ends fairly well at the end of the work.
