Capitol Murder

Deadly intrigue, breathtaking twists, and exhilarating suspense await in the third book of Phillip Margolin's New York Times bestselling Washington Trilogy. Hot on the heels of Supreme Justice, Margolin delivers another heart-pounding thriller featuring private investigator Dana Cutler and lawyer Brad Miller, who are forced by a terrorist attack on a football stadium—and by the escape of Executive Privilege's convicted serial killer Clarence Little—to follow a sinister trail of lies, treachery, and betrayal into an unexpected new arena: the U.S. Congress.

"Phillip Margolin knows how to pack in the thrills." —Tess Gerritsen

  • Publisher's Weekly

    January 16, 2012
    PI Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller, now working as a congressional legal aide, contend with sex scandals, an escaped murderer, and a looming major terrorist attack on U.S. soil in bestseller Margolin’s busy third Washington, D.C., thriller (after 2010’s Supreme Justice). Cutler is dispatched to Portland, Ore., where Miller’s boss, Sen. Jack Carson, has gotten involved with a Middle Eastern seductress, Jessica Koshani, who possesses a DVD showing Carson in a compromising position. Koshani blackmails Carson into returning to D.C., where he’s to report to her on what the authorities know about a suicide bombing her employers are plotting. Meanwhile, Miller must keep track of Clarence Little, a serial killer and former client sent to prison in 2008’s Executive Privilege, who’s been sending Miller cryptically threatening letters since escaping custody in Oregon. Some readers may struggle with the large cast and many scene shifts, but Margolin manages to pull everything together in the end. Agents: Jean Naggar and Jennifer Weltz, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency.
