✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Irreparable Harm by Melissa F. Miller


Irreparable Harm
By: Melissa F. Miller
Narrated by: Suzanne T. Fortin
Series: Sasha McCandless Legal Thrillers, Book 1
Publisher: OrangeSky Audio

After eight long years, Sasha McCandless is about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. 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. 

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Irreparable Harm starts out with a high tension scene and it doesn't let up. Oh, there are times when things slow down a bit, but the tension doesn't ease. This is the first in a series featuring Sasha McCandless, and I've just gotta tell you - Sasha is one tough lawyer, and I don't just mean in the courtroom. As it turns out, she's pretty darn good at taking care of herself. The storyline is a little out there, or at least I hope it's a little out there - if not, I may never get on an airplane. It's also a bit convoluted, and while I would usually knock a book for that, it works here. There are a lot of moving parts in this one, and Melissa Miller brings it all together wonderfully.
Suzanne T Fortin gives voice to Sasha, and she does so quite well. The excitement and tension of the book comes through loud and clear, from courtroom drama to physical fights, it's done so well that I could picture it all. 
In the end, this one doesn't have as much courtroom page time as I expected, but that along with the drama and action blends together so well that I didn't even notice it until I'd finished listening and thought back over the story. It's a great mix of solid storytelling and narration, and I'll be checking out more work by both Miller and Fortin.
