Publisher's Summary

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 on behalf of the First Lady.

Nolan knows that to win his case, he has to find out what really caused Marine One to crash and why the president threw caution aside to go to a meeting no one seems to know about.

    "My Absolute Favorite"
    Would you listen to Marine One again? Why?

    There was nothing that I didn't like about this book. I wish I could forget it all and have the experience of listening to it all over tomorrow.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really haven't listened to many legal thrillers but I'm hooked now. It was just the right amount of suspense, action and intelligent intrigue.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    My first by this narrator but not my last. He was perfect as the protagonist.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was hooked from the first page and it never let up.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I wished for were about 3 more chapters to expound on the ending a little more. It was all great but it ended very abruptly for my taste.

    "Enjoyed very much"

    Narrator was very good with various voices for characters. Writing is very discriptive and high and low points placed well. This had somewhat of an unexpected climax.

    Combine national & international interests with suspenseful litigation & courtroom drama. Throw in scientific analysis and legal craft -- holds interest to the end.
