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.

    "Great Start but Faded Fast"

    Engaging first few chapters but the story really got lost in a confusing path of angles and turns that never really came together.

    The big build up to the ending fell flat when a new twist was added to close out the story.

    Go elsewhere.

    "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.

    "Good story but long tiresome buildup."

    I gave this 4 stars because it was a very good book but took a long time to get there, however it was good enough to keep me around till it did get exciting. Bravo!

    Story
    "Very repetitive."

    It should have been one third as long as the repetition was agonizing. I almost gave up but the ending which was the last 15 minutes was wonderful. The main character, a lawyer, was aggravatingly naïve and put himself and all of his assistance in grave danger. Not believable that anyone of his caliber would do so.

    Story
    "Fantastic Storyline!"
    Where does Marine One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listen to about 20 audiobooks so far about 5 of which were fiction. I would rate this audiobook’s storyline and performance the 2nd best audiobook that I have listened to.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I am a huge fan court room and political drama TV Shows (Boston Legal, The West Wing, The Practice, etc.) the fact that this audiobook had both was what kept me on the edge of my seat.


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

    I have not listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before but I would listen to him again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have listened to this book in one sitting if I had the time.

    "Thrilling story with amazing narration"

    I couldn't put it down. The story is amazing and the narration adds to it immensely. I never read a legal thriller before but this is just as interesting as any other fiction thriller on the market.

    Story
    "Sensational read.."
    What did you love best about Marine One?

    I enjoy stories and films about aviation and this one didn't disappoint. Great story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It kept me listening. I tend to listen to books at night on my IPAD when I'm trying to fall asleep. This book didn't help me sleep because it kept my interest from start to finish.


    Which character – as performed by Joe Barrett – was your favorite?

    The lawyers for the insurance defendants were brilliant.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It didn't make me laugh or cry. What it did do was hold my interest for periods longer than I care to admit.


    Any additional comments?

    An absolutely excellent read for anyone that has an interest in Aviation. Highly recommended.
