With this book, Chris Papst has become a new force in the world of politics and political writing. His story, on the rise and fall of Harrisburg, is a perspective that can be applied to many political organizations throughout the United States. I don't live in Harrisburg, but I see the same mistakes happening in my hometown. Chris writes for those interested in politics, history, journalism and those who want to ensure that the future of the United States is one that flourishes within the boundaries of maintaining fiscal responsibility. Chris makes the reader care about what is occurring in local government. His story is interesting and fast paced. Hopefully, Harrisburg's story will impact future governments.

This is a case study in political ineptitude and corruption at state and city levels. Capital Murder depicts how easy it seems to get started down such an impossible path that actually becomes an inevitable but preventable disaster. You might think details are too nuanced to understand how a city’s debt could grow to four to five times the annual budget. The author has done a brilliant job of laying out the path to destruction, why we need to know know this story and how to heed its call to accountability.
