Marine One by James W. Huston

Today’s recommendation, is for the guys, or anyone who enjoys fiction without romance, or mushy scenes – just the facts in a plot driven novel.

The president of the United States is killed when Marine One (the president’s helicopter) crashes during a bad thunderstorm. Marine Corps reserve pilot and trial attorney Mike Nolan is hired by the helicopter manufacturer to find out what happened. Americans want to blame the manufacturer of the helicopter for the accident. After all, it wasn’t even an American product: it was made in France!

Questions abound, such as: why was the president so determined to fly from Washington to Camp David that night? Why can’t the investigation team find the tip weights from the rotor blades? Why was Mike’s super private investigator murdered?

Those are just a few of the questions that Mike Nolan needs answered as the many twists and turns of this crime story are unraveled.
