Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Bestseller Huston (Secret Justice) grabs the reader by the lapels with the opening sentence of the first chapter of this outstanding thriller: "If my radio alarm had gone off, I would have known the president was dead." During a violent thunderstorm, President James Adams takes off in Marine One from the White House for a supersecret meeting at Camp David. A few miles out, the helicopter begins to disintegrate and plunges to the ground, killing everyone aboard. The helicopter's French company, WorldCopter, hires Annapolis attorney Mike Nolan to defend it against charges of criminal responsibility. Mike soon finds there are a number of possible culprits to pin the crash on, including the rabidly conservative Marine Corps pilot and the mysterious men who were awaiting the president at Camp David. Mike powers the case forward, even though the government warns him away and assassins attempt to kill him. This is nonstop legal suspense at its best. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

From Library Journal:

When the President is killed in the crash of the Marine One helicopter, while en route to a mysterious meeting at Camp David, the world wants to know why. Mike Nolan, former marine helicopter pilot and lawyer, is tapped by the chopper's French manufacturer to protect them from claims of liability as initial suspicion points at them. But the more Nolan digs, the more he finds. Was it sabotage or mechanical defect? The pilot hated the President; so was it an assassination? Why was the President so desperate to get to Camp David in the first place that he would go during a terrible storm? Why are State Department goons threatening anybody who tries to find out about the secret meeting? And why are people close to Nolan winding up as dog food? Literally. Equal parts thriller, mystery, and legal procedural, Huston's sixth novel is a gripping and fast-paced read. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 1/09.]-Robert Conroy, Warren, MI (c) Copyright 2010.
