When Oklahoma attorney Ben Kincaid came to Washington, D.C., to defend a senator caught in
a red-hot sex scandal turned murder case, he never dreamed he’d end up trading the courtroom for the Senate chamber. And after his not-so-distinguished client stepped down, Ben found himself appointed to complete the sullied senator’s term. Now, having barely gotten his political sea legs, he must rise to yet another challenge: advising the president’s next Supreme Court nominee during the sometimes thorny confirmation process. Luckily, Judge Thaddeus Roush’s popularity on both sides of the aisle looks to make him a shoo-in–until he decides to out himself on national television, igniting a Beltway uproar and setting the stage for a bare-knuckle partisan brawl.

Forced to scramble for spin control, Ben hastily calls a press conference for the now controversial candidate. But when, on live TV, a brutally murdered woman is discovered in the judge’s backyard. For the political forces out to torpedo the nomination of a gay Supreme Court justice, the shocking turn of events is pure gold. But Team Kincaid isn’t about to let the right man for the job get derailed.

In CAPITOL THREAT, William Bernhardt serves up a resounding one-two punch of political intrigue and legal suspense peppered with a volley of his trademark plot twists, sly wit, and persistent thrills. Download and start listening now!

    " An engrossing, if somewhat melodramatic, mystery about a gay man trying to become a Supreme Court Justice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Irene | 7/22/2010

    " I listened to this book. I am on the fence if I would recommend this book. the story is slow and the author does not give clues throughout the book.
    Once again I am thankful for the library so I have a chance to read/listen to books "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chuck | 4/29/2010

    " A supreme court nominee announces unexpectedly at his introductory
    news conference that he is gay. An unexpected ally is the junior senator
    from Oklahoma who I gather is a recurring character. I don't like this guy's style. Didn't finish.

    " Could not get into it, and I usually like this kind of book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/29/2009

    " The second book featuring Ben Kincaid in Washington. I have to be honest and say I wasn't as taken with this book as I was the first Capitol novel but it was still a great storyline. I just found it a little slow-moving. "

    " Just really started this, but it is promising to be as good as other William Bernhardt novels I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 2/25/2008

    " Ben Kincaid is now a Senator. I am not as fond of this book as the ones he is a trial lawyer. However, this one has some twists and turns and an ending that I never saw coming. "

    " Absolute power and the corruption ensues. But there are good guys everywhere...even in Washington "
