Late at night, the president rushes through the pounding rain to Marine One. His advisors plead with him not to fly, but he insists. He has arranged a meeting that only three people in his administration know about. In the midst of a brutal thunderstorm on the way to Camp David, Marine One crashes into a ravine, killing all aboard.

When the government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter for killing the president, Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps Reserve helicopter pilot and trial attorney, is hired to defend the company. What begins as a criminal investigation soon becomes the highest-profile trial of the century, as the First Lady sues the company for wrongful death. To clear his client, Nolan must 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.

Marine One expertly mixes political intrigue with courtroom drama and fast-paced action.

    " This book was amazing. It is a top-notch thriller that had me on the edge of my chair most of the way through. It has lots of legal twists and turns and a satisfying surprise ending. I can't recommend it more highly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Cara | 2/18/2014

    " Could have done without the bad language, but a good story, kept the suspense up pretty well throughout the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Susan | 2/6/2014

    " The President's helicopter crashes on his way to Camp David. The French company that built it has to prove it was not a defect but sabotage. The book is decent up to a point and I learned a lot about helicopters but the plot has enough holes to drive a truck through and the denouement was incomplete. "

    " I liked this book. I enjoyed the insight into the legal world and trials along with the mystery aspect. "
