A sexy courtroom thriller

An Atlantica airplane fell out of the sky killing all 288 people on board. According to the authorities, a terrorist bombing was the cause. The families of all 288 passengers and crew are sueing the airline for negligence. Specifically maintenance of the aircraft thinking this is what brought it down not a terrorist bomb as stated.

This book really spins around Lisa, Max, Shank, Tony, Greg and Sam. The law clerk, the airline owner, the airline heavy, the pilot (Lisa's lover), the pilot's son and the supreme court justice...in that order. Lisa comes from a troubled background and Max has literally pulled her from the gutter and set her on the path to a legal career. Lisa feels obligated to Max to help sway the supreme court justice (however necessary) so he will rule in the airlines favor. Shank is the bad guy terrorizing Lisa, Max and Greg. There is a coverup going on and Lisa is determined to see the airline pay for the death of her lover.

A great mystery and very suspenseful. Unfortunately I picked up an abridged version of this book and surely missed all the good stuff. The audiobook was terrific but I think the full printed version would have been spectacular. So if you have the choice, choose the full version.

Not great but not as bad as the rating. A decent legal thriller.
