Overview

Private investigator Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller have overcome more than a few daunting challenges and powerful enemies to see justice done. Against tremendous odds, they successfully unmasked an American president's involvement in a chain of murders. They also saved the life of a Supreme Court justice while foiling a conspiracy by rogue members of the CIA to fix a case headed for the court.

Now wicked threats old and new are about to bring them together once again. Convicted serial killer Clarence Little has escaped from death row in Oregon, and Brad receives threatening messages in D.C., where he is working for Senator Jack Carson, a high-ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. A dead body, murdered according to Little's M.O., is found in the senator's Georgetown home, and Carson has disappeared. While Dana is in Oregon digging into Carson's shady background, a terrorist cell is poised to destroy a packed professional football stadium in one of the biggest attacks on American soil. As the senator's personal life begins to dovetail with the cell's evil plan, Brad and Dana will risk it all again to uncover the truth and save their country.

Phillip Margolin proves once more that he is a true master of suspense, delivering another high-octane thriller set in Washington's legendary corridors of power. Capitol Murder's breathtaking pace and electrifying twists will have old fans and newcomers racing to the final, stunning page.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
PI Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller, now working as a congressional legal aide, contend with sex scandals, an escaped murderer, and a looming major terrorist attack on U.S. soil in bestseller Margolin’s busy third Washington, D.C., thriller (after 2010’s Supreme Justice). Cutler is dispatched to Portland, Ore., where Miller’s boss, Sen. Jack Carson, has gotten involved with a Middle Eastern seductress, Jessica Koshani, who possesses a DVD showing Carson in a compromising position. Koshani blackmails Carson into returning to D.C., where he’s to report to her on what the authorities know about a suicide bombing her employers are plotting. Meanwhile, Miller must keep track of Clarence Little, a serial killer and former client sent to prison in 2008’s Executive Privilege, who’s been sending Miller cryptically threatening letters since escaping custody in Oregon. Some readers may struggle with the large cast and many scene shifts, but Margolin manages to pull everything together in the end. Agents: Jean Naggar and Jennifer Weltz, Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency. (Apr.)

    I have read seven of Mr. Margolin's novels and enjoyed them all

    I have read seven of Mr. Margolin's novels and enjoyed them all including Capitol Murder. I have rated this below average because it read as if it were a "rush to market/publish" piece when compared to the other two in this series: Executive Privilege and Supreme Justice. The characters were not developed well. This book could not stand on its own if the narrative develop from these to previous books were unknown.

    The misuse of adverbs is annoying, e.g. "She held it tight." Tight modifies how it was "held" and should be an adverb with the addition of -ly (tightly). This is an occurrence that happens 100-200 times in each book. Yes, I know. All the mystery and suspense writers butcher English. Also, all firearms mentioned have the ammunition in magazines, not clips. These are two entirely different pieces of hardware.

    But back to the story, it began slowly, meandered somewhat with multiple threads, and concluded abruptly. Entertaining but not satisfying. I will continue to purchase and read all of Mr. Margolin's published works and trust this is a one-time aberration. GW Hiesterman

    Three stars means good, and this book is a good read for a lazy

    Three stars means good, and this book is a good read for a lazy day or a crowded flight. The time will quickly pass. Capitol Murder will not challenge you much. You'll forget about it minutes after you are finished with it, but no harm will be done. No animals will be hurt, and, if you get the e-book, no trees will have suffered needlessly.

    Very interesting read - worth checking out.

    Overall I liked the book because it held my interest from start to finish. I thought the ending was realistic but left some items hanging (that may be addressed in the next novel, but it could have been wrapped up more cleanly).

    Still a very good book.

    Highly recommend

    This book is for mystery read fans like myself. The characters are well-developed, the plot is fantastic. I did not anticipate the ending, but it was quite a surprise. This is the second book by this author with familiar characters from Executive Privilege. I look forward to reading more by Phillip Margolin.
