Here's the set-up:

There's a smartphone app that can crash a plane. 
And it's for sale to the highest bidder . . .

Attorney Sasha McCandless is closing in on the prize after eight long years: she's months away from being made partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up.

Then a plane operated by her client slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard. Sasha gears up to prepare a defense to the inevitable civil lawsuits.

She quickly 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 who's investigating the crash. As they race to prevent another disaster, people close to the matter start to die. And she's next on the list.

Sasha will need to rely on her legal training and her Krav Maga training in equal measure to find and stop a madman before he strikes again.

Irreparable Harm is a taut introduction to an unforgettable protagonist.

From the reviewers:

It is extremely rare to find the well developed, beautifully written novel that can give readers a sense of place inhabited by characters of depth. It is even more rare to combine that with a mystery/thriller genre that will keep you up to the early morning hours turning pages at breakneck speed. Melissa Miller hits the mark in Irreparable Harm.

The characters are real, the language is fast paced, cutting, and witty. This book will be enjoyed by all but will a special treat for lawyers and anyone who has ever loved Pittsburgh. Can't wait to read more from this author.! I couldn't put it down and it consumed my entire weekend until I finished the very last page! The storyline is believable and full of suspense! I fell in love with the characters and am hoping she brings them back in another story. Melissa F. Miller has incredible talent as a writer and her knowledge of the legal system is very thorough. I am really looking forward to her next book. 

Melissa F. Miller is a commercial litigator. She and her husband practice law together in South Central Pennsylvania, where they live with their three young children.

When she is not in court or on the playground, Melissa writes crime fiction.

Readers have also praised her Kindle book,  Dark Blooms,  which includes two finely crafted short stories and an excerpt from Irreparable Harm.
