Former mob hit man now in the witness protection program tells his story to a budding novelist. The book is suppose to be a work of fiction until Washington politicals take control of it. Mac and Anabelle help the young writer regain control. Good book

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.
