Book Reveiw-Irreparable Harm-Melissa F Miller

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

I actually read the 2nd book in the Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller series by Melissa F Miller. You can read my review of Inadvertent Disclosure here. I liked it so much that I actually went in and purchased Book 1 in the series, Irreparable Harm. I finally found the time to read it and enjoyed it thoroughly. Will I be purchasing and reading more in this series--you can bet on it!

Irreparable Harm is a tale of corporate greed which pits a lawyer from a high profile firm in a very strange situation. As we know client/attorney knowledge is sacrosanct--but what happens when the lawyer knows or suspects that lives are in danger? I wondered how Sasha met up with the federal air marshall--well, this book will explain all.

As of 2/16 the e-book is free on Kindle!! I don't know how long this will last!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

After eight long years, attorney Sasha McCandless is about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up.

When a plane operated by her client slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard, Sasha gears up to defend the inevitable civil lawsuits. She soon realizes the crash was no accident: a developer has created an application that can control a commercial plane's onboard computer from a smartphone.

Sasha joins forces with a federal air marshal, and they race to prevent another airline disaster. But when people close to the matter start turning up dead, Sasha must rely on both her legal skills and her Krav Maga training to stop the madman before he kills her.

I'm not sure how you read that fast either. There's a lot of book reviews out there. I'm still working on one I got last week. lol
A lawyer turned writer I bet she's filled with all kinds of musings from her cases for her books.
