A MOVING TARGET
A U.S. Navy F/A-18 flying over Afghanistan is suddenly diverted and ordered to bomb a building in Pakistan, where a meeting between al Qaeda and the Taliban is taking place. After destroying its target, the fighter is immediately hit by Stinger missiles and the pilots eject over Pakistan. They are captured, assaulted, and dragged through the streets of Peshawar. The world is on edge.

a secret mission
The pilots are quickly forced onto a private Falcon jet headed for the Netherlands, where theyll stand trial for war crimes at the International Criminal Court. The building they hit was actually a medical post constructed by Europeans for Afghan refugeesand sixty-five innocent people were killed.

a trial by fire
Its up to Washington criminal defense lawyer and former Navy SEAL Jack Caskey to defend the two naval officers. Caskey implores President Obama to intervene, but he is wary of a direct conflict with the ICC. Already fighting a losing battle, an outraged Caskey works with his contacts in the shadowy world of special operations and CIA operatives to free the pilotsor help them battle through an international show trial and face imprisonmentfor life.

Jack Caskey, a Washington, D.C., criminal defense attorney and former navy SEAL, tries to prevent the judicial railroading of two U.S. Navy aviators by the International Criminal Court in this timely and provocative thriller from bestseller Huston (Marine One). When navy officers Doug Raw Rawlings and Bill Dunk Duncan bomb an approved target in Pakistan, they hit not a meeting between Taliban and al-Qaeda leaders, as expected, but European aid workers and their patients. After their F-18 Hornet is shot down during the mission, the captured pilots wind up in The Hague, where they’re charged with war crimes. Jack, who leads a hastily assembled team to defend Raw and Dunk, travels to Pakistan in a dangerous effort to find witnesses. Meanwhile, the U.S. government maneuvers to avoid the trial. Huston provides an intriguing look at international law, current American policies, and modern war. (May)

A Navy F/A-18 fighter jet gets shot down over Pakistan, and the two pilots are tried as war criminals in Huston’s latest blend of legal and political thrillers. Jack Caskey, former Navy SEAL, now a criminal defense attorney, is asked to represent the pilots in a court case being heard in The Hague at the International Criminal Court. The political ramifications of the trial and the difficulty of determining exactly what happened the night the plane was shot down push Caskey deep into a clandestine world of secrets. Meanwhile, the president of the U.S. contemplates a rescue operation that could jeopardize peace with several European countries. Huston has the background and know-how to make this high-concept story feel authentic. Caskey is a fascinating character, and the mystery proves engaging as well. Readers looking for Mike Nolan, hero of Huston’s previous novel, Marine One (2009), will be disappointed, as he’s not the main character, but the novel still shines. Recommend this to fans of both Tom Clancy and David Baldacci. –Jeff Ayers –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    I started this Huston book with some misgivings but it turned out a real page turner and I couldn’t put it down. Apparently, the ICC is a real institution and this could happen and its scarey.
    He also brings up the way Pres Obama has downgraded US military and intelligence activities and blames all the current problems on Pres Bush.
    I highly recommend all of his books and will look forward to the next one.

    Americans are fascinated by aircraft crashes, NTSB investigations and the high stakes litigation that follows the crash. But Jim Huston, an internationally prominent lawyer in this field, has really ramped up the excitement in Marine One. The aircraft that crashes is no ordinary plane. It’s Marine One, the President’s helicopter, and the President is killed when it crashes. But Huston doesn’t stop there. There is international intrique, a Congressional inquiry, State Department meddling, a deadly conspiracy to thwart the efforts of anyone getting close to discovering the true cause of the crash of Marine One and, just for the heck of it, a few lawyers who may or may not be dishonest. The end product is a sensational novel!

    James W. Huston served as a naval flight officer and is currently a trial officer in an international law firm. It would therefore only be natural that, upon embarking on a career in the writing business, he would pen military, espionage, or legal thrillers. And that is precisely what he has been doing for the past several years. He combines a “been there, done that” perspective with a bright-eyed and clearheaded vision of how the world works — and the place of the United States in that world — to create uncanny and seemingly prescient visions not of what might happen, but what almost certainly will happen, and all too soon.

    Following 2009′s brilliant MARINE ONE, Huston returns with FALCON SEVEN, which is even better than its predecessor. The inspiration and the basis for the book is one of the most important pieces of legislation ever passed by Congress, yet has received little fanfare. That would be the American Service-Members’ Protection Act, which authorizes the President of the United States to use all means necessary and appropriate to bring about the release of any United States or allied personnel imprisoned by, on behalf of, or at the request of the International Criminal Court. The ICC is a kangaroo court that has unilaterally claimed jurisdiction over undefined war crimes, whether the alleged perpetrators of them are from member nations or not.

    The scenario that begins FALCON SEVEN and brings the ICC into play is hair-raising in its plausibility. An American pilot team on a flight mission in Afghanistan is redirected to a target in Pakistan, where, they are told, a meeting between members of al-Qaeda and the Taliban are taking place. Their mission is successful; almost immediately, however, their plane is shot down, the pilots are captured, and, in less time than it takes to tell it, the two Americans are frog-marched into the ICC in The Hague. It turns out that the target was in fact a building that housed and treated war refugees. The attack, which was supposed to hit only enemy combatants, resulted in the deaths of several dozen people.

    Jack Caskey, a former Navy SEAL who is currently a criminal defense attorney, is tasked by the National Security Council with defending them, even as a rescue mission is being planned to recover the pilots. As he begins plotting his defense strategy, however, the current President loses his will and calls the whole thing off. With time running out as the scheduled trial date approaches, he must defend the two United States airmen in front of a self-appointed three-judge tribunal that has in effect already made up its collective mind. Caskey — aided by a somewhat reluctant law school classmate employed by a high-powered law firm (which, interestingly enough, had represented several high-profile prisoners at Guantanamo Bay) and several associates — brings his experience as a defense attorney to bear as he crosses the globe to investigate several puzzling anomalies in the case, not the least of which is how a transport plane was practically on the site of the airmen’s capture to effect their transfer to the ICC facility.

    But a sharp legal mind is not the only tool in Caskey’s skill set. Aided by a former military colleague, he begins formulating a Plan B to rescue the airmen, just in case he is unable to bring about the miracle of obtaining a fair trial for his clients. And when the U.S. government seemingly pulls the rug out from under Caskey at the 11th hour, it looks as if he will have no choice but to implement that plan, no matter the consequences.

    Huston’s books demand to be read in one sitting, and FALCON SEVEN is no exception. Not that you’ll notice. You’ll read the novel (especially the last 100 pages) so quickly that you’ll have scorch marks on your corneas. Huston doesn’t just straddle the territory where military, espionage, and legal thrillers meet: with FALCON SEVEN, he owns it.

    James Huston has written a timely and exciting legal/political thriller in “Falcon Seven” that revolves around the war in the Middle East, and the political manipulations that arise from it.

    During a routine mission in support of the war in Afghanistan, an American fighter jet is shot down and its two-man crew captured and mysteriously hustled off to The Hague to face war crimes charges at the International Criminal Court located there.

    It falls to former SEAL and current criminal defense attorney Jack Caskey and his buddies to do all they can to free the airmen, either through winning the case in court – an almost virtual impossibility – or through “other” means. With the deck stacked against them, we follow Caskey & Company as they try to penetrate the fog surrounding the case, and the capture of the airmen, in an effort to see justice done.

    Fast-paced, with fully developed characters, and tightly plotted, this book was thoroughly engaging and tons of fun.

    But there’s no way to review this without acknowledging the elephant in the room.

    Huston clearly writes from a conservative point of view, and the main villain in the piece is liberalism and its practitioners, both domestic and international. There’s simply no way around that.

    If you’re conservative yourself, you’ll find yourself nodding along in agreement, and outraged by the actions of some of the characters.

    If you’re liberal, you’ll no doubt find yourself offended by the portrayal of Obama and his staff (yes, Huston uses real-life people in some parts), as well as that of European liberalism and anti-Americanism.

    Caveat emptor.

    From the opening page to the last page you won’t want to stop reading Marine One by James W. Hustion, the author of such exciting military legal thrillers as Balance Of Power and The Price Of Power. The pages will fly through your fingers. Marine One, is a super-charged, highly plot driven novel that starts off with the President taking off in a thunderstorm on Marine One to Camp David late at night to take part in a secret meeting that only three people in his administration know about. He never makes it, however, as Marine One loses its battle with the thunderstorm and crashes into a ravine, killing all aboard. From that point on the plot continues to build to a high pitch as trial lawyer, Mike Nolan, a Marine Corps reserve helicopter pilot, is hired to defend the French manufacturer of the helicopter after it is accused by the government of killing the President, as well as from a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the First Lady. The plot is well-developed, very believable and expertly blends political intrigue with courtroom drama that results in an exciting, fun reading experience. The main factor that keeps me from giving this book a five-star rating is that while Huston has created characters that mostly fulfill their intended role (i.e. with many not being much more than cogs in a well-oiled machine), they are not developed fully enough to get a strong sense in your mind of what they look like and what their back stories are, which would have better enabled me to identify with them. Nonetheless, Marine One is a fast-paced, entertaining legal thriller that is perfect for a summer beach read or to take on vacation (but not one that involves a helicopter flight). Enjoy!

    I gave the book to my son the wannabe novelist as an example of how to keep readers glued to the page. For the last third of the book I was no use to anybody–couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter. Mr. Huston not only keeps the action going but clearly knows his subjects, from law to helicopter construction and mechanics.

    Wow! What a great book.

    This book was a page turner from the very beginning. The action is non-stop and the intrigue is first class.
    There was no boring, mindless chitter chatter either. The pacing was quick, the characters believable, and the story was riveting.

    I rarely give 5 stars, and this book was 5+.

    Its like reading a military/political Grisham.

    First up, I have most of the books written by this author. Honestly, I bought the book because I had enjoyed the other books. That being said, this is his best book to date!!! It got my attention on page one and didn’t let me go till the end. I was worried that the battery on my Kindle would die before the book ended. I could not put it down. If you buy only one book by this author, buy this book. All I can say is, I am ready for the next book by James Huston.

    What i liked about this is it was a page-turner.
    Fast and easy to read. I loved the drama and suspense.
    I also just finished The Jefferson Key and it sucked way bad!
    I would suggest this one any day.

    If James Huston’s new legal thriller MARINE ONE isn’t made into a blockbuster movie, I will be the most surprised thriller reader on the planet!

    Against the advice of his staff and the pleadings of his wife, President Adams boards his helicopter MARINE ONE in the teeth of a brutal thunderstorm and heads to a top secret night time meeting at Camp David in Maryland. When the helicoper crashes killing the president, the helicopter’s crew and all of the secret service on board, the search is on for the causes and a target for the political blame. Top on the list is World Helicopter, the French manufacturer of the aircraft, whose insurance company retains Mike Nolan, an Annapolis attorney, to defend them against a multi-billion dollar lawsuit filed by the former and now widowed First Lady and the other grieving widows of the crash.

    MARINE ONE is one HOT thriller – plenty of twists and turns, extensive believable dialogue, superb characterization, fabulous courtroom drama , sleazy political wrangling and grandstanding and a surprise ending that is so realistic, so chilling and, sadly, so believable that the hair on the back of your neck will positively stand on end.

    Highly recommended. Be sure you’ve got plenty of available time because (and I don’t say this too often) you won’t want to put it down.

    I’ve enjoyed all of James Huston’s books. He draws on a combination of legal issues, proceedings and pretty good action to consistantly produce page-turners. Falcon Seven directly addresses the American objection to the 1998 establishment in Rome of the international criminal court (I was there) and its claimed universal jurisdiction–including over members of the United States armed forces. Even though our president signed the treaty he urged the congress not to ratify it for the very reasons explored in this very good novel. I was sorry to see it end although the slam bang ending was terrific.

    James W. Huston’s Marine One begins with a bang. The title vehicle is of course the designation for the presidential helicopter. When it crashes in a severe thunderstorm while nearing its approach to Camp David, killing all aboard including the chief executive, the finger-pointing begins immediately. Attorney Mike Nolan both narrates the novel and acts as the lead counsel for the helicopter manufacturer’s insurer. The suspense genre has recently suffered from an epidemic of passive protagonists who never see anything coming even one move in advance and spend 300 pages getting pushed around by fate and their far more competent adversaries – before blindly lucking into a win at the end of the story. The author must be as repelled by that type of hero as readers such as I are, because his Mike Nolan is smart, observant, and proactive.

    Huston published five very good legal thrillers with military backstories in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but it has been six years since his last book. Marine One should bring back his old readers and win him new ones as well. It’s an excellent combination of legal strategy, mystery, and action. Yet the characters are believable, and they’re likable when they’re supposed to be. Huston spends a fair amount of time introducing a surprisingly large number of secondary and tertiary characters. The end of the novel certainly leaves it open to a sequel utilizing the same cast, though it doesn’t require one, and I’d be surprised if that wasn’t what Huston was thinking when he invested the time to give the backgrounds of various litigators, crash reconstruction experts, etc.

    Nolan seems like the textbook attorney from central casting for this particular role. He is a respected trial attorney at the top of his game, a former Marine copter pilot himself, and has been involved in investigating or litigating aviation disasters before. One of the novel’s minor flaws in fact is that Nolan’s fitness for the role of lead counsel is nevertheless repeatedly called into question by the insurer who hired him to begin with and their insured (French-based WorldCopter). Nolan uses his Marine connections and those of his private investigator to try to answer some puzzling questions such as why the president was so insistent on flying despite the rough weather.

    The court of public opinion, prompted by a jingoistic senator, a very quickly-delivered National Transportation Safety Board verdict, and a media rush to judgment, quickly determines that the foreign manufacturer is to blame for building a faulty helicopter that killed the president. Nolan is forced to split his limited legal and investigatory manpower in exploring multiple plausible alternate theories. This is another point where the reader is perhaps forced to suspend a bit more disbelief, when the novel begins to resemble one of those artificial English country house murders where the baronet is found murdered in his study while hosting six people who all have equally strong motives for wishing him dead. The author himself seems to acknowledge the same when one possible crash theory (pilot error) is referred to as the NTSB’s default “the butler did it.”

    But a more kindly view of the multiple alternate theories sees them not as part of a formula but as a structure, one on which Huston builds. The main downside of this aspect of the story is that he leaves too many of these multiple threads still tangled together as the novel’s end approaches, forcing a rushed resolution to many of the side issues. But the main story basically stays on track.

    There are a lot of little things I liked about the book. For example: the fact that Nolan is apparently happily married although we see and are told relatively little of his wife. This is another welcome departure from the usual suspense-with-romance-tacked-on formula that likes to present readers with multiple bright attractive characters in their 30s who are nevertheless mysteriously available. Thankfully Huston spares us having to cringe our way through Nolan teaming up with a plucky female reporter who initially thinks all veterans are sadistic babykillers but eventually grows to appreciate the sterling qualities of the misunderstood hero.

    Another strength is the very detailed and realistic accounting of the trial and the pre-trial motions and legal maneuverings. Huston is a trial lawyer himself and is on familiar ground here. His opponent is an odious ambulance-chasing sleaze who resorts to every dirty trick in the book and them some. Yet Nolan repeatedly out-thinks and moves to successfully block him, even turning apparently weaknesses into strengths by intelligent anticipation of events. However, Huston doesn’t make the mistake of making Nolan’s foresight too perfect, and not every stratagem of the opposition is fended off.

    Not that there’s necessarily only one opponent, but there’s no need to get too detailed. If you like suspense, give Marine One a try, and then go back and catch up with Huston’s back catalog. I almost feel as if I need to apologize for not giving the book five stars. Probably it won’t still be being read 100 years from now, but it’s not trying to be War & Peace; it’s simply trying to be the best legal-military-suspense novel it can be today, and it certainly succeeds at that. Whether it’s a five, a four, or a four and a half star thriller isn’t important. What is is that it’s eminently readable.

    After waiting a number of years to see a new thriller by James W. Huston, I found it to be every bit a page turner as his previous books that I have read. I will be purchasing his other that I have sitting in my save for later file very soon. James Huston ranks right up there with Dale Brown and Stephen Coots.

    I read quite a variety of books, and lately, I’ve been reading more law/law enforcement/military/federal/etc themed books.

    Marine One is about the President’s helicopter going down, and the lawsuit that follows.

    There are parts in which the writer is a bit condescending toward his audience, unintentionally, I’m sure. I like for an author to assume that if I’m reading this book, I’ve read others or I find the subject matter interesting. I want to avoid excesses of exposition. The book is written in the first person, from the POV of the defendant’s attorney, so it’s possible that it’s the character who’s a little too talky rather than the author. Either way, there are more than a few places where he “tells” rather than “shows.”

    The Main main characters are fairly well fleshed-out, and some of the secondary characters are one-dimensional or two-dimensional. The attorney’s wife, for example, is mentioned in passing half a dozen times, and then gets two spots toward the end of the book where she gets a whole paragraph. I didn’t feel I knew her well enough for her to advance to a major minor role at the end.

    The denouement in the courtroom virtually ended the book. It was a rather abrupt ending.

    Let me be clear, I did enjoy this book, just not as much as I expected to do.

    Just finished book..enthralled to the end..quite believable since we’ve watched this president kowtow to every tin horn nation and principality. We’ve sat and seen his henchman Holder distort the civil liberties, the last being the family of the border patrol officer who can NOT claim victim status in our courts. it is quite a convincing scenario about our servicemen and the ICC…

    What I really liked about this book is that the scenario it deals with could happen tomorrow. No suspension of belief is necessary to appreciate this story.

    The International Criminal Court is as real as a heart attack. The US Congress considered it to be a loose enough cannon that it authorized any US President to use any means necessary to protect any US Servicemen who are sought to be brought under it’s jurisdiction. “Any means” is all encompassing. President Clinton told the US Senate not to ratify it after he signed it and President Bush withdrew our signature. What made this book so topical is that it occurs in the present. The president in the White House when two navy airman are charged by the court with war crimes is Barak Obama. I dare say that the author’s instincts about how Mr. Obama would handle this crisis are right on.

    Others have set out the plot line in detail and have pronounced it a page turner. I will take it one step further. I plan to re-read it. It is THAT good. Huston, given his military and legal background is in a perfect place to write such anovel and I only hope that the situation he conjures up remains a piece of fiction, because it would not take much to turn it into a grim reality.

    It has been a while since we were favored with a James W. Huston novel and the wait was more than worth it. As a pilot and retired trial lawyer, a book such as this goes down very easily for me. I have represented defendants in product liability cases and the litigation that Huston recounts in this book while a few decibels higher in sound and value than most, is very realistically set out.

    This is a story that has you, right from the prologue. As events transpire and Mike Nolan gets drawn further and further into the mystery of the crash of Marine One with the president on board, it becomes more and more difficult to put down.

    I read it in two days and for the last 100 pages, I turned OFF the Red Sox game I had been watching so as not to be distracted from the flow of events. I am a die hard Sox fan and if that isn’t a measure of what a gripping story this is, I don’t know what is.

    I have read several of the author’s books so I’m familiar with his style. This is an excellent read…….but it felt like a documentary. There is zero character development….the protagonist has a wife and kids but you never know anything about them or him. He is never described at all, you can’t begin to form a mental picture of him. And the same goes for all the other characters, he has an assistant and we know her name but we don’t know what she looks like or much about her. I like to form visuals of the characters and in this book it is impossible.

    As to the documentary aspect, the book reads like an excellent description of what to expect as an attorney when a helicopter crashes, how to investigate the crash and all the rest….which I enjoyed partially due to the fact I’m a pilot. It’s a great story line, I just wish he made the characters more real.

    Yep, read it in a day. Love getting a book you can’t put down. There are so many reviews that claim this, but only about 1 in 100 delivers. No jingoistic flag waving, just a fun and intelligent read. I love the fact that Huston has the ability to invent new heroes for each book so there are no continuity issues, and you can enjoy the story for what it is. No spoilers for this review, just a recommendation that you read it ona a day off work, start early and expect to finish it late.

    James Huston starts his novel with a bang and ends with a compelling trial that clarifies why Huston will be at the top of the politico thriller for a very long time. As someone who does not normally like legal dramas, this novel turns the genre upside down. Calm cool and collected is how the lead character handles himself at all times and what truly makes this shine is facing a sleazeball New York trial attorney the likes of which the full page ads in the yellow pages have never seen. You will be hooked from page one and held through page 324.

    A good, entertaining yarn. If you’re a purist about rotary wing aircraft technology, you’ll groan a bit, but the helicopter is almost…almost incidental. This is a political – legal thriller, not a techno-thriller. Even the core technical premise is a stretch.

    It is a little like reading an abridgement though. The plot moves along, description is minimized and the characters are straightforward. They are what you see. Thankfully we’re spared a litany of each character’s personality disorders that seem to be so common in modern novels. It is irritating when otherwise intelligent characters fail to demonstrate any paranoia or take relevant precautions until they suffer the consequences. From the outset, this is clearly a very high stakes set of circumstanses and the protagonist’s response really doesn’t reflect that understanding. I suppose that’s necessary to developing a little intrigue, but being stupid or too busy isn’t very satisfying.

    Nevertheless, because it moves along and has an intriguing plot, it makes my cut.

    The President of the United States is killed when Marine One crashes during a horrific thunderstorm. Marine One is the President’s helicopter. Nothing is normal or as it seems regarding the crash. Was it an accident due to the weather, equipment failure or a assassination of the President?

    The Goverment almost immediately accuses the manufacturer of Marine One of negligence & causing the death of the President. A lawsuit is filed on behalf of the First Lady and the other wives who lost their husbands on the doomed flight. it is up to attorney Mike Nolan to find out what really happened and save the manufacturer of Marine One from losing billions of dollars and their reputation.

    I enjoyed this book, it was suspenseful and fast paced. The attorneys on both sides are well written and packed with personality. You learn a thing or two about our government,the court system and of course helicopters. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. It keeps you guessing up until the end when you find out what really happened. A fun read.
