Arriving home from a fund-raising dinner, senior Illinois senator Lyle Simmons discovers his wife's brutally bludgeoned body. And like any savvy politician with presidential aspirations, his first move is to phone his attorney. In this case, it's his old friend and college roommate, former DA Philip Rotondi, who gamely agrees to step out of quiet retirement and into the thick of a D.C.-style political, criminal, and public relations maelstrom from which no one will escape unscathed.

The crime scene is barely cold when the senator's estranged daughter arrives hurling shocking allegations of murder at her father, despite a roomful of well-heeled witnesses who can provide Simmons with an alibi. Meanwhile, D.C.'s rumor mills and spin machines shift into high gear as speculation swirls around a tabloid- and TV-ready prime suspect: Jonell Marbury, a dashing lawyer turned lobbyist at a powerful K Street firm - and the last person to see the victim alive. But Rotondi harbors his own unsettling suspicions. And after a second woman is killed, he discovers that a long-buried secret from his past may hold the key to cracking the case.

Aided by sleuthing ex-attorneys Mac and Annabel Smith, Rotondi reawakens the prosecutorial skills that served him so well in his gang-busting days, following the stench of dirty money and dirtier tricks across the country and across the thresholds of back rooms and front offices alike - where doing the right thing is for fools and taking on the system is a dead man's gambit.

Listener Opinions

    " For a murder mystery whodunit this book came in with an easy to follow plot and characters that fit their role pretty well. The good guys and bad guys were revealed quickly and there were a few mildly curious bit players. Ultimately I felt like I was waiting for the plot twist that never came. As a predictable mystery goes it was fine, but not a book I would recommend for someone who likes to chase around complexity in their mystery reading selections. Maybe good for a mindless beach read or airplane ride, but for me it was mystery light. "

    " Story details lobbying practices in DC and features nearly two pages of Homeland Security Dept. ACRONYMS - an incredible alphabet soup. "

    " Scandalous Lobbying firm, in bed with Senator, has senator's wife killed. "

    " The story itself was fine - too many unimportant characters mucked up the waters. I get that mysteries are supposed to have multiple suspects to enhance the drama...but this was to the point of irritation. "
