This story was an entertaining listen, but the ending was a "stretch".... The court room drama was very satisfying but the ending while viable, it left me disappointed. Even though the ending was potentially possible, I guess I wanted something more. I wanted an ending that would have taken down the bad guys who were involved in the courtroom drama.
The court room tactics were the best part of the story. Which side, the defense or the prosecution, would come up with the best "gotcha" moments. There were lots of legal wrangling going on while each side were investigating who manufactured key parts of the helicopter that crashed killing the President of the United States. Determining why the helicopter crashed would determine who was responsible.
The narrator was on point, no complaints there...

I really enjoyed this one. This book suggests the sword of damocles theory how people in positions of power are always under constant threat. The President's chopper crashes and the expected media frenzy ensues, the manufacturer of the chopper is the obvious scape goat so a court battle follows while evidence is covered up and a the real story wreaks of conspiracy. The action starts right from the first page, and I was hard-pressed to find one dull moment. Always on the edge of my seat, the narrative is fast paced and free flowing. The only criticism I have is regarding some of the chapters in the first half. This book reads like an abridged version. sometimes, the chapters would just stop! The author tries to make it suspensefull by cutting the chapter off, mid-sentence, but it gives an unfinished impression. I was quite surprised at this. Having said that, the Narrator does a brilliant job with tones and accents, etc. It is very well read, and an exciting story to listen to.
