Overview

Attorney Bonnie MacDougal knows firsthand the fast-paced world of the big-city law firm and the impact of a frenetic practice 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 nearly 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 proves that Bonnie MacDougal has earned her reputation as "the female John Grisham."—London Evening Standland

"Starts fast and keeps moving . . . Gives readers an insider's view of the way big law firms try big cases." —Phillip Margolin Author of The Burning Man

About the Author

Bonnie MacDougal is a trial lawyer who practiced for sixteen years in major law firms across the country. Born in suburban Philadelphia, she received her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College, magna cum laude with Honors in English literature, and her law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she was a moot-court champion and held a fellowship in legal writing. Her law career took her to Anchorage, Alaska, and Little Rock, Arkansas (where she was one of the few lawyers ever to practice law with Bill Clinton), before she returned to Philadelphia. She joined Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, a prestigious law firm with more than 200 lawyers, where she developed an expertise in complex litigation and tried a number of high-profile lawsuits. Although her novels are works of fiction, they were inspired by actual cases in which she was involved. Bonnie is now engaged as a full-time author, although she remains involved in litigation on an occasional consulting basis. She lives in suburban Philadelphia with her husband and two daughters.
