Angle of Impact is probably not the best book for legal thriller addicts to take on their next airplane flight, but for terra firma reading it is strong, fact-packed, and very gripping. Philadelphia lawyer Bonnie MacDougal takes a real-life collision between a light plane and a helicopter over a suburban park and turns it into a personal and professional challenge for her fictional counterpart, Philadelphia lawyer Dana Svenssen. As she did in her first novel, Breach of Trust, MacDougal sprinkles just the right amount of detail about civil liability and forensic evidence into her exciting stew.
