Irreparable Harm (Sasha McCandless Legal Thriller Book 1)
Meet attorney Sasha McCandless in Irreparable Harm, the fast-paced, whip-smart legal thriller by USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa F. Miller.

After eight long years, Sasha is about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up.

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.

Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker already struggling to keep his family together, suddenly finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when a bizarre string of disasters starts tearing apart the world around them. The Internet goes down. A bird-flu epidemic starts raging. Rumors spread that it's all part of a coordinated foreign attack. And then the power goes out as a monster snowstorm plunges New York into frozen darkness, becoming a wintry tomb where nothing is what it seems...and no one can be trusted.

[#5 - I don't often see free books with this many reviews so it probably has something going for it. Not exactly a novel premise.]

Noble Beginnings: A Jack Noble Thriller (Jack Noble #1)
In March of 2002, while the eyes of the world focused on Afghanistan, Jack Noble finds himself on the outskirts of Baghdad, Iraq. A Marine in name only, Jack is on-loan to the CIA. Normally an integral part of the team, he finds that he is nothing more than a security detail in Iraq.

Jack and his partner Bear have a run-in with four CIA special agents over the treatment of an Iraqi family. Within hours Jack and Bear are detained.

All Jack wanted was to finish his enlistment and move on with his life. All he did was intervene and save a family from unwarranted violence at the hands of four CIA agents. But he soon discovers that he did far more than intervene. He has placed himself dead square in the middle of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of the U.S. government.
