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.

    "Entertaining!"

    Great plot, character development and story. The narration was fabulous and though the final result was hinted at the twists and turns kept you guessing.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Best book I have read in years."

    I love thrillers, especially when it involves espionage, legal drama, and aviation. This book covers all of those points in spades. It has been many years since I have gotten so involved in a story that I stayed up all night to finish it.

    "Surprised to find it enjoyable!"

    I don't normally find legal thrillers entertaining, but this one really delivered for me. It had a nice, round assortment of red herrings, sleazy lawyers, secrets, blind alleys, and mystery to hold my attention throughout the book. Bravo!

    Story
    "Very Good......but"
    Would you try another book from James W. Huston and/or Joe Barrett?

    Without question.


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

    I thought the ending was weak. The plot/story builds VERY nicely....but in the climax/reveal the 'bad guy' seems implausible. I love mystery thrillers that are reality based. Maybe another chapter to explain or expose the 'bad guys' and the reactions of the 'interested parties' would be more satisfying. This is from a guy who knows he can read/listen but not write.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The book has many great scenes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    When it came to Netflix. I haven't been to the movies in ten years.

    Story
    "Aircrash Investigation + Grisham courtroom drama"

    Marine One is engaging, suspenseful, interesting AND, best of all, is without the bad language that has become so common place in books.

    The story is about a helicopter crash in which the US President is killed and the subsequent trial against the manufactures of the helicopter.

    I great listen which kept me glued to my earphones. I will be looking at more audiobooks from this author.

    "Wow!!"

    Expecting a book about flying adventure and helicopters, I got a legal drama. Despite the book's wrapping in the banality of the legal process, the theme and exciting plot continued until the very end. I thought that a couple of the lawyers ought to be taken out back and shot, but that is the talent of the author coming through. Teased with innuendo and crammed with facts, the book is a winner. Read more Huston!
