There's a smartphone app capable of crashing a commercial jet. And it's for sale to the highest bidder.... Attorney Sasha McCandless is closing in on the prize: After eight years of long hours, she's about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up. Then a plane operated by her client slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard. She gears up for the inevitable civil lawsuits. But, as Sasha digs into the case, she learns the crash was no accident.
"Not as good as the Aroostine Higgins series"
In the name of science, an international team of researchers creates a deadly virus capable of killing untold millions. While the U.S. government quietly stockpiles a vaccine, a militaristic group of doomsday preppers begins to mobilize in response to the economic collapse they're convinced is coming. Then the Doomsday virus is stolen and a researcher is murdered.
Even Sasha's most daunting cases to date haven't prepared her for her current challenge: Finding a wedding reception venue that her mother and Connelly can agree on. Wedding planning woes become the least of her worries, though, when Bodhi King, a forensic pathologist for the City of Pittsburgh, comes to her for help. Young women across the city are dying, and he suspects their deaths are connected. After he voices his suspicions, he becomes a target.
"Really good relationship/chick lit novel but..."
Attorney Sasha McCandless is back in Irretrievably Broken. The venerable law firm of Prescott & Talbott is reeling from the murder of partner Ellen Mortenson - purportedly at the hands of her estranged husband - when a photograph of the dead woman arrives, her face Xed out and "ONE DOWN" scrawled across the bottom. Within days, a second partner is murdered, her husband also accused. Sasha doesn't practice criminal defense, so she's suspicious when her former firm asks her to represent Ellen's husband. Owing Prescott a favor, she takes the case and soon finds herself representing not one, but both, of the so-called Lady Lawyer Killers.
It's been six months since an airplane crash altered the course of attorney Sasha McCandless' professional and personal life. She's busy building her solo law practice and tending her budding relationship with federal air marshal Leo Connelly, who helped her stop a madman. When Sasha drives from Pittsburgh to rural Clear Brook County to argue a run-of-the-mill discovery motion, she finds a town bitterly divided over the issue of hydrofracking the Marcellus Shale beneath it. Outsiders from the oil and gas industry and environmental activists threaten to rip apart the fabric of the small town.
