“Irreparable Harm” by Melissa F. Miller

Thoroughly enjoyable! Packed with action and intrigue! Those were my first thoughts upon reading Irreparable Harm. I was completely taken in my Sasha McCandless. Here’s this delicate, petite woman, who appears to be as harmless as a fly, but threaten her and you’ll find yourself flat on the floor. Sasha trains in Krav Maga which she uses more than once while investigating this case. Sasha is also a highly respected lawyer who is about to made a partner in her firm, but only if she handles this case properly.

A commercial aircraft has crashed killing all onboard. The airline who owns the plane is Sasha’s client. As she and her team begin to dig into the lives of the passengers they uncover information that is very suspicious. Did somebody plot to bring down that plane deliberately? An employee at a technology firm inadvertently sends Sasha critical information that was supposed to be kept secret. Now Sasha has two thugs after her trying to get the information back, at any cost. Sasha must use all her resources to untangle this spider’s web.

I found it very hard to tear myself away from this book. The characters were wonderfully believable. I even enjoyed the action scenes. I loved the idea of this small woman taking down the big thugs. There also a fair bit of courtroom drama too. I felt like there was a really good balance of the action, intrigue and drama. This book is part of a series which I have added to my reading list. I highly recommend this legal thriller.
