Synopsis (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.  

My take

We are in no doubt about who or what caused the crash of Hemisphere Air Flight 1667 for we are there when Angelo Calvaruso hits SEND on his smart phone. But who is behind it, and what does he/they hope to get out of it?

The race to avert another disaster is nicely paced, and and I enjoyed the tight plotting. An excellent read - I'm just sorry it took me a while to get around toreading it.

My rating: 4.5
