Publisher's Summary

A few short blocks from the safety of the museums and monuments on the National Mall, a ruthless killer prowls the streets of Washington, D.C. Federal prosecutor Jeff Trask joins a team of FBI agents and police detectives as they try to solve the series of brutal murders. As the body count rises, the investigation leads to a chilling confrontation with the leader of an international drug smuggling ring, and no one is safe, not even the police.
Written by former Washington prosecutor Marc Rainer, Capital Kill is a swirling thrill ride through the labyrinth of a major federal investigation and trial, with a gripping conclusion that no one will see coming.


What the Critics Say

"Jeff Trask is an Assistant U.S. Attorney who becomes embroiled in a high-stakes international case.... Characters are well developed. The streets of Washington, D.C. come alive; those who have lived or worked in the nation's capital will recognize Rainer's cunning use of seedy locales to give the action in the book a realistic tone. Trask, an engaging main character, works to find out who is behind the heinous murders plaguing D.C. Despite being extremely intelligent, he comes across as an everyman. The book's intense action, realistic tone and memorable characters will keep readers engrossed in this thriller with a superb payoff." (Kirkus Reviews)

I found the book very entertaining. The narrator did a fine job except for his ethnic accents. They were a bit cartoonish and need to be dialed back a bit. Overall, it was an enjoyable listen.

What disappointed you about Capital Kill?

The book was written as if for a child...or was it just the author thinking out loud? This could have been a really good book, but there was too much "explanation" in dialogue.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Nice twist. The ending wasn't a complete surprise, but I liked it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Very poor attempts at accents, especially the Jamaican. Not much differentiation between character voices.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The book has good potential, and a re-write with less obvious content would make it much better. If one is new to legal thrillers, this may be a decent start.
