After the president is killed when his official helicopter crashes on its way to a mysterious meeting in Camp David, Marine Corps reserve pilot and trial attorney Mike Nolan begins an investigation to discover the cause of the crash.

McMillan Palgrave

The president rushes across the South Lawn through a pounding thunderstorm to Marine One to fly to Camp David late at night. His advisers plead with him not to fly, but he insists. He has arranged a meeting that only three people in his administration know about. After fighting its way through the brutal thunderstorm on the way to Camp David, Marine One crashes into a ravine in Maryland, killing all aboard.

The government blames the European manufacturer of the helicopter and accuses 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, then from a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the most notorious lawyer in America on behalf of the First Lady. Nolan knows that to prevail in the firestorm against his client, 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. To clear his client, Nolan must win the highest-profile trial of the last hundred years with very little working for him, and everything working against him.

Marine One expertly mixes political intrigue with courtroom drama and fast-paced action in the most exciting thriller of the year.

I know we live in the times of hellish privatization and American plutocracy and American oligarchs and American hegemony, but this is the most stupid premise for a fictional thriller imaginable.

I really liked this audiobook. It kept me listening when I really should have been doing other things. Loved the gravely voice of the reader.

"On its way to a top-secret meeting at Camp David, the helicopter carrying the president crashes, killing everyone on board. Annapolis attorney Mike Nolan is hired by the helicopter's manufacturer to defend it against lawsuits, but the more that Mike learns, the more questions he has. First of all, was there a mechanical defect, or was the helicopter sabotaged? And why was the president headed to Camp David - in a terrible storm - for a meeting that only three people knew about? Fans of techno-thrillers, legal thrillers, and political thrillers should find this a compelling read."

A court room, military, political and corporate thriller. Highly recommend, 8 of 10 for me.

This political thriller really turns up after a slow and somewhat tedious start. You won't want to stop once you get to the second half. 8 of 10 stars
