Capital Crime: Mystery writer and amateur sleuth Jessica Fletcher can't believe her luck when she finds herself in Washington, DC to support a new literacy initiative. Not only does she get to spend a week helping with such an important cause, but she also gets to spend time with Scotland Yard inspector George Sutherland, who happens to be in town for a conference.
During an extravagant affair at the home of Maine's junior senator, Jessica dn George discover the body of the senator's chief of staff. The woman's death is deemed accidental, but Jessica and George suspect something more sinister. Their search for answers leads them from the shadowy halls of the Library of Congress to the DC social scene and even to the FBI. To unravel the clues in this political puzzler, they will have to read between the lines - and the lies...
Another very entertaining Murder She Wrote book.
An interesting mystery set in Washington, DC where Jessica sees her "person of interest" once again albeit briefly. Fun and light.
Great! Just like watching the show!
This is a Jessica Fletcher book that takes place in Washington, D.C. It sheds a light on how politics and lobbyists work together. A good escapist book.
It's hard for me to believe I've read 22 of these books. This one has to be one of the best I've read. Got through it in less than a day. In fact, I put all the other books I'm reading aside to finish this one. There was lots of action from the first page. And it continued right through to the end.
Of course, it's just a novel, a work of fiction. Who would ever believe any of the members of Congress and their aides would do something underhanded?
