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 near impossible--until a kidnapping suddenly throws Dana into the maelstrom of a deadly, all-consuming conspiracy. . . .

Angle of Impact is probably not the best book for legal thriller addicts to take on their next airplane flight, but for terra firma reading it is strong, fact-packed, and very gripping. Philadelphia lawyer Bonnie MacDougal takes a real-life collision between a light plane and a helicopter over a suburban park and turns it into a personal and professional challenge for her fictional counterpart, Philadelphia lawyer Dana Svenssen. As she did in her first novel, Breach of Trust, MacDougal sprinkles just the right amount of detail about civil liability and forensic evidence into her exciting stew.From the Publisher:
Bonnie MacDougal's ANGLE OF IMPACT opens with the collision of an airplane and a helicopter -- and the debris rains down on an amusement park, including a roller coaster. When it was time to design the cover for our paperback edition of ANGLE OF IMPACT and we discussed using a different image for the roller coaster, I decided to do a bit of research on the structure of roller coasters. I got on the Internet and was amazed at all the different types of rides existing around the country. I found images of the scariest, the fastest, and the meanest rides around. A designer here eventually created the artwork for the cover without using any of the images as reference but as inspiration. Its a sleek, mean monster of steel...a rival to all other coasters.
