3.0 out of 5 stars Can anyone guess what they do on Capitol Hill?, March 5, 2012
This review is from: Capitol Murder (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Some fighters use a one, two punch to win their matches.

In "Capitol Murder," Phillip Margolin delivers an interesting and well executed one, two, three pronged approach to his story.

First we have convicted serial killer, Clarence Little. He murders and mutilates young women. However, one of the cases where he was found guilty shows faulty evidence, resulting in the case being overturned. Due to this, Little's other convictions must be reviewed.

Brad Miller is an attorney who was active in overturning Little's conviction. Brad is living in Washington, D.C. and begins getting notes from Little boasting about the trophies he took from his victims.

A second layer of the plot involves a terrorist plot to blow up a professional football stadium while packed with fans watching a Monday night football game. Since this game is shown around the world, it would be a blow to the U.S. and demoralize the U.S. servicemen.

The final segment of the story has to do with Brad Miller. He is currently working for Senator Jack Carson of Oregon. Carson is an influencial public official but has unusual sexual behavior and will do anything to keep this a secret.

The story comes together nicely but perhaps a bitt too conveniently. It does have a number of interesting plot twists but there is the question of how realistic the plot would seem to the reader, in addition, the packed football staduim as a target of the terrorists has been done before.

The two central characters are Brad Miller and P.I. Dana Cutler. They are very likable and people who the reader will want to succedd in their actions.

The book is an easy read and I felt myself nodding in agreement with the satisfying ending.
