“BRIGHT, WITTY, [AND] FULL OF WASHINGTON INSIDER INSIGHT.”
“SHE’S UP TO THE MINUTE. AND SHE’S GOOD.”
From the Inside Flap
Between them, Senator Cale Caldwell and his blue-blooded wife controlled as much power on Capitol Hill as the law would allow. Sadly, it wasn?t sufficient to protect him from a killer, even surrounded by his friends at a champagne reception in his honor.
The senator?s murder wasn?t the family?s first brush with violence. Only two years ago, a niece had been murdered, her killer never found. But when attorney Lydia James, counsel to a senate committee investigating the tragedy, suggests there might be a connection between the two deaths, she?s voted down fast. Yet strange rumors persist. The senator?s death could benefit many people, among them a bitter political adversary, an ambitious talk show host, and a master of spin who makes even murder look
good. . . .
