I enjoyed this book, my first by Margaret Truman, and will be looking for others. Very believable accounting of the goings-on in Washington.
I was very surprised to find that Margaret Truman has written at least 23 or 24 "Capital Crimes Novels"--the capital being Washington DC, of course. I read it out of curiosity to see what kind of tales teller she is and how entertaining her writing might be. I was agreeably surprised and entertained and plan to read more. Her tale was readable and with the requisite "how will it end?" suspense. While there was a murder, the book was not filled with violence or profanity. It is always rewarding to find a writer who knows enough words without resorting to a continuing stream of profanity. As an old Navy man, I have heard just about every word there is to hear, but I find that intelligent words are best. I did find the ending a little soft after a terrific build up, and I did find a bit tedious numerous instances of listing what one character had to eat with great regularity. All in all, however, the book was worth the time to read it.
Fascinating view of Washington, DC and its inhabitants.
