Overview

Murder in Foggy Bottom (Capital Crimes Series #17) by Margaret Truman

Once it was a swamp. Now Foggy Bottom is swimming with real-estate sharks. When a man is found stabbed to death in this trendy D.C. neighborhood, it is major news. But within forty-eight hours the nation is gripped by a fear that leaves this comparatively small crime in the dark.

Three passenger planes are shot out of the sky. Everywhere–in law enforcement, in the media, and in the most secret realms of government–men and women scramble to find out who shot hand-held missiles at the planes, and why. It is a search that reaches from Moscow to the Pacific Northwest, putting some people’s lives in jeopardy and turning others lives inside out. But no one can guess the truth: that the epicenter of the terrorist outbreak is Washington D.C. . . . and a dead man behind a park bench in a place called Foggy Bottom.

Foggy Bottom was built on a swamp, but the D.C. real estate is home to the Kennedy Center and the State Department. Murders don¿t often happen here. The corpse is well dressed and Post reporter Joe Patamos is going to find out who has killed the Canadian. But his story will have to wait. Three planes have been shot out of the sky. Russian SAMs have been found at all of the scenes and all of the alphabet agencies been investigating. The Russians are suspect, yet the FBI strongly suspects a Washington state Neo-Nazi Militia. CIA operative Max Pauling is sent to Russia to gather Intel on the weapons as well as a potential link to the down planes that killed over 4 score American men, women, and children. Patamos believes that the body found in Foggy Bottom is relevant and both he and Pauling discover the link to the murder and the terrorist attack about the same time, but in separate hemispheres. Written in 2000, Truman keeps the suspense taut and captures the fear that all Americans felt that September morning in 2001. The characters are well developed and likable, but I felt that the story line could have been better developed.
