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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Narrator's Voice was Annoying"
    What did you like best about Marine One? What did you like least?

    While the story was somewhat predictable, it was nonetheless captivating as it unfolded. When I first started the book I was tempted to send it back. Just couldn't get past the narrator's high, whiny voice; most noticeable when he attempted to do a female character as they all sounded like old biddies. I did eventually get into the book enough that I could overlook the narrator and, to my surprise, he seemed to get better as the characters developed.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joe Barrett’s performances?

    Very, very reluctantly.


    Did Marine One inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, definitely hear a preview before buying

    "Totally captivating from the beginning."

    Excellent story, completely believable. Best narrator I have listened to in a while. Book would appeal to mystery/espionage lovers as well as legal thriller readers.

    "Excellent!"

    I found this to be an excellent story. The further into it the more riveting it became. It has moments where I actually felt myself tense up and moments where I laughed out loud.
    I enjoy this narrator too. He did one other audio book that I have listened to.

    "fantastic, gripping, well read."

    Once the story got going I was hooked. Really hated one of the main characters which tells you how good the reading of the character was. A damn good yarn.

    "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.
