Political thriller, terrorists
by Bob Walch
After unmasking a U.S. president's involvement in serial murders
and saving the life of a Supreme Court justice, private investigator
Dana Cutler and lawyer Brad Miller are at it again.
The third novel in Phillip Margolin's Washington trilogy finds
a former adversary, Clarence Little, the convicted killer from "Executive
Privilege", back on the streets after he escapes from Death
Row. The mutilated remains of a wealthy woman suggest the Capitol
Hill killer is back to his old tricks.
The fact that the woman was a heavy donor to Senator Jack Carson's
campaign fund and also had ties to an international terrorist group
muddies the situation. Carson has a penchant for bedding sexy women
and the Congressman's extra-curricular activities seem to have now
placed him in a very compromising position.
To heighten the tension and complicate matters for Cutler and
Miller, the terrorist group has reputedly targeted an NFL stadium
for an attack. Working against the pressure of a tight timeline,
the duo must sort out this mess quickly. If they don't, hundreds
of lives could be lost.
Political corruption, international intrigue and a nasty sex scandal
lie at the heart of this gritty story as bestselling author Phillip
Margolin works his magic again in an action packed thriller.
