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.

"Nonstop legal suspense at its best."(Publishers Weekly)
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.
As a DOD aircraft accident investigator I found this book so compelling that I finished it in one day. Great storyline,well read,factually accurate and easy to follow.
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.
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.
My first by this narrator but not my last. He was perfect as the protagonist.
I was hooked from the first page and it never let up.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I have not listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before but I would listen to him again.
I would have listened to this book in one sitting if I had the time.
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.
I enjoy stories and films about aviation and this one didn't disappoint. Great story.
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.
The lawyers for the insurance defendants were brilliant.
It didn't make me laugh or cry. What it did do was hold my interest for periods longer than I care to admit.
An absolutely excellent read for anyone that has an interest in Aviation. Highly recommended.
My passion has always been learning about history, but only lately as I am in my 60's have found the time to read, follow history's account
Very well researched book and great story, enjoyed it and couldn't put it down.
I will look for more books written by this author.
The narrator was excellent.
