Reckless Homicide is a top notch legal thriller. I "flew" through this trial involving an airline, an airline pilot, the pilot's brother, and a airplane crash. It raises a good question - who is responsible when a plane goes down? The ending completely took me by surprise. I highly recommend this novel.
A surprisingly readable novel by an author I was unfamiliar with before picking up this work. This is a pseudo-legal thriller.
