Editorial Reviews

Review

“BRIGHT, WITTY, [AND] FULL OF WASHINGTON INSIDER INSIGHT.”
Houston Chronicle

“SHE’S UP TO THE MINUTE. AND SHE’S GOOD.”
–Associated Press

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. . . .

Format: Paperback
The second in Margaret Truman's "Murder in Washington" series is better than the first. In "Murder on Capitol Hill" Truman has a surer grasp of character and plot than in "Murder in the White House", but her research is still done from memory and the story is predictable. Senator Cale Caldwell is murdered at a party, leaving readers a finite number of suspects as heroine lawyer Lydia James leads the investigation. Truman gives us an interesting and well-drawn array of suspects, but most readers will have worked out the plot halfway through.
As in "White House", Truman relies heavily on her Washington memories rather than researching new ones. So instead of interesting and detailed insights into the Senate's back rooms, we get a lot of chats in restaurants and bars. Despite its title, there is very little description of Capitol Hill. Readers interested in juicy insider insights will be disappointed. With a few pen strokes, the book could be set in any city. A quick read, not bad, but lots of room for improvement.

None of Margaret Truman's mysteries rise to the level of the greatest mystery writers, but they are clearly the best of the celebrity mysteries and show a real understanding of Washington and politics.

Senator Caldwell is murdered at a party in his honor. Lydia Grant is picked to head a special Senate committee investigating h is death. She comes to believe his death may be connected to that of his foster daughter Jimmye. A decent mystery with some good political flavor.

While these books are all similar by title and even general plot, they are all very interesting and still a great read. She really does the political thriller/murder mystery well as her depiction of Washington politics and the peoople involved is very accurate and believable. I am interested to find the twist in each one.
