This is my first Margaret Truman mystery and I found it very well written, the plot was intricate enough to keep you guessing until the end and her knowledge of insider politics made it well worth the read. The mention of actual people as part of the story made it very believable. I've got another one of her books in my To Be Read pile and I'll definitly be looking for more. It's always fun to find a new author that you haven't read before and find you enjoy their books.

With theatrical skill, Truman shifts her scenes
With each new change of lighting, you see different facets of character, different faces of villainy. In the end, nothing you assumed at the start holds true.
The Houston Post
Excellent characterization, a plot that is involved but not too complicated and a pleasing
writing style are combined in this latest mystery, novel. It's good reading by an author who seems to get better with each murder. . . . There are many more locations Washington for murder
to happen, and we hope this excellent author
will use them in subsequent novels.

"Truman does a good job of building an intricate plot. I could not guess who the murderer was

From Publishers Weekly: "Likely to follow Truman's eight earlier mysteries up the bestseller lists, her ninth opens with a grand performance at the Kennedy Center honoring Senator Ewald, favored to win his party's nomination for president. But hopes dim after the extravaganza when Professor MacKenzie (Mac) Smith finds an Ewald campaign worker, Andrea Feldman, shot dead behind the Center. The senator's son Paul, who has been sexually involved with Andrea, is arrested for the murder, whereupon his wife, Janet, disappears. As a professor of law and Ewald's friend, Mac uses his skills to investigate those in Ewald's orbit. The suspects include the senator's wife, Leslie, his campaign manager, Ed Farmer, and a host of others capable of murder so as to cause a scandal ruinous to the candidate. At last, Mac penetrates the mystery, thickly layered in the complexities of Washington political processes, once again brought vividly to life by Truman's expertise. Literary Guild main selection."
