Inhaltsangabe: Attorney Bonnie MacDougal knows firsthand the fast-paced world of the big-city law firm and the effect a frenetic practice can have on a lawyer's family life. This intimate knowledge infuses her thrillers with stunning authenticity. And now, with Angle of Impact, she gives us an explosive novel of suspense that literally begins with a bang.
Dana Svenssen, a brilliant, overworked Philadelphia lawyer, is on her way to a routine business meeting when her carefully ordered world detonates. The helicopter carrying her client collides with an airplane directly over the amusement park where Dana's two daughters are spending the day on a class trip. As fiery debris rains down on screaming families, Dana desperately races to the scene to find her children. Then, in the frantic aftermath, she discovers that the tragic accident isn't an accident.
Yet determining the probable cause of the collision is arduous and near impossible. As Dana assembles a crack team of forensic aviation experts to reconstruct the disaster, her troubled marriage threatens to crash and burn as well. Until a kidnapping suddenly throws Dana into the maelstrom of a deadly, all-consuming conspiracy.
Sharp, tautly written, and packed with vivid characters and nonstop action, Angle of Impact shows that Bonnie MacDougal has earned her brilliant reputation as "the female John Grisham." *

Rezension: Angle of Impact is probably not the best book for legal thriller addicts to take on their next airplane flight, but for terra firma reading it is strong, fact-packed, and very gripping. Philadelphia lawyer Bonnie MacDougal takes a real-life collision between a light plane and a helicopter over a suburban park and turns it into a personal and professional challenge for her fictional counterpart, Philadelphia lawyer Dana Svenssen. As she did in her first novel, Breach of Trust, MacDougal sprinkles just the right amount of detail about civil liability and forensic evidence into her exciting stew.
