Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Truman's latest capital city mystery ( Murder at the Kennedy Center ), well served by the rich ecclesiastical accoutrements of its solemn setting, gets off to a fine start as law professor Mackensie Smith and his new wife, art gallery owner Annabel Reed, investigate the murder of high-profile Episcopalian priest Paul Singletary. Leader of Word of Peace, an international anti-apartheid group whose followers number an unsavory element as well as idealists, the dashing Singletary had acquired many enemies who could have bludgeoned him to death in a Cathedral chapel. Combining business with pleasure, Mac and Annabel continue sleuthing on their honeymoon in London and the Cotswolds, where another priest is killed and Annabel's life is threatened. Back in D.C., government agencies interrupt the investigation, a soloist from the Cathedral boys' choir exhibits great anxiety, two canons accuse each other of murder, the choir director quits and Truman's mystery unravels disappointingly in a melodramatic, arbitrary resolution. Gentlemanly Mac and lively Annabel deserve a more convincing vehicle. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
YA-- When Episcopal priest Paul Singletary is murdered in Washington's National Cathedral, there are so many logical suspects that it's difficult to choose among them. This latest volume in Truman's series of tales of murder and mayhem in the nation's capital again features law professor Mackensie Smith and his intelligent new wife, Annabel Reed. Their companionable relationship is a definite plus, as are the details of life in Washington. While the plot is not as exciting as in some of her earlier works, Truman's writing and characterization continue to please in this well-drawn mystery.-- Judy Williams, Fairfax County Pub . Lib . , VA
