Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Marine One has good lawyers, evil lawyers, a fascinating premise and an inside look at the down and dirty world of litigation where billions are at stake. Add in a dead president and shadowy assassins and you have a very good read.” Phillip Margolin, author of Fugitive
“Bestseller Huston grabs the reader by the lapels with the opening sentence of the first chapter of this outstanding thriller…This is nonstop legal suspense at its best.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Equal parts thriller, mystery, and legal procedural, Huston’s sixth novel is a gripping and fast-paced read.” Library Journal
“A mystery with political intrigue, courtroom drama, and international controversy. Huston is a solid storyteller and brings it all to bear.” School LIbrary Journal
“Experienced stage, screen, television and voice over actor Joe Barrett’s performance is perfectly matched with the book. He uses an excellent variety of voices that suit the characters. His portrayal of the opposing lawyer, a condescending and evil person, is perfect. The drama is enhanced by perfect tempo and pacing, and the suspense never sags.” SoundCommentary.com
