The first book in Phillip Margolin’s New York Times bestselling Washington Trilogy, a powerful tale of murder that snakes its way through Washington, DC’s halls of power, leading straight to the White House and the most powerful office on earth.

When private detective Dana Cutler is hired by an attorney with powerful political connections, the assignment seems simple enough: follow a pretty college student named Charlotte Walsh and report on where she goes and whom she sees. But then the unexpected happens. One night, Cutler follows Walsh to a secret meeting with Christopher Farrington, the president of the United States. The following morning, Walsh’s dead body shows up and Cutler has to run for her life.

In Oregon, Brad Miller, a junior associate in a huge law firm is working on the appeal of a convicted serial killer. Clarence Little, now on death row, claims he was framed for the murder of a teenager who, at the time of her death, worked for the then governor, Christopher Farrington. Suddenly, a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer find themselves in possession of evidence that suggests that someone in the White House is a murderer. Their only problem? Staying alive long enough to prove it.

Executive Privilege, with its nonstop action, unforgettable characters, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, proves once again that Phillip Margolin—whose work has been hailed as “frighteningly plausible” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and “twisted and brilliant” (Chicago Tribune)—belongs in the top echelon of thriller writers.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by David Gott | 2/18/2014

    " Predictable and unimaginative. But is was free on Amazon so worth the time I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lorie | 2/18/2014

    " Well, this was not one of Margolin's best efforts. I had the killer figured out within the first 3 chapters. I read the whole thing figuring I must be wrong and waiting for the big twist. It never came. *sigh* And the end, the VERY end, was extremely anticlimactic. Overall, it was still a good read, but I look forward to the next one with hopes for improvement. (Gone, But Not Forgotten remains one of my favorites of all time) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Una Tiers | 2/12/2014

    " This was a great book, the blood and gore precluded me from giving it five stars. The pace is terrific. Characters are a little shallow. The author keeps you guessing until the surprise ending. "
