Don't be turned off by the 3 star rating. This is a really good, fast paced thriller. It's just that the more books I review the more I see the difference in good to great. There are many reviews I'd like rewrite, because I tend to be generous in praising books.
In the first book of the series, Executive Privilege, I was thoroughly entertained with Margolin's humor and the tension between most of the characters. Here there is the fascinating and mysterious side story of escaped serial killer Clarence Little which seemed more of a convenient "get out of a bind" ploy by the author. Still, Clarence is a master manipulator. His sequences in the tale are still quite riveting.
Jonathan Davis is great as the narrator.
If you liked the characters in Executive Privilege, (I love them!) you'll enjoy this book. The mystery is good as well.

What did you like best about Capitol Murder? What did you like least?
this had a good outline and characters. I have not listened to #1 & 2 as they were recorded in earlier years and I wanted to experience readers' current recording cadence closes to 2014. I thought author spent too much time referring to #1 & 2 and not staying with the story a bit more in-depth. the 3 stories had a lot of information that connects the whole novel, but at times sounded more of an outline. I have more of this author in my wish list due to some good readers.
Would you recommend Capitol Murder to your friends? Why or why not?
this is not my genre, I am a core romance listener, but am desperate to hear more of JD voice telling me a story. The characters are great, and book1 & 2 may do better justice to them. Author has a way of spinning a tale and this books' ending did not disappoint.
What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I love JD reading abilities. His 2014 deep cadence in Sandra Browns' Mean Streak, was so great, I have been trying to find other reads/authors that his voice can do justice to the story. JD performance saved this story. JD is his main stream name. I do not know if he has a romance or erotic A.K.A. name, but I would love it if someone would point out that name. i.e.: sean crisen aka dan john miller of Nora Roberts the Pagan stone, hot.
Did Capitol Murder inspire you to do anything?
I will keep searching JD reads until I can ID his voice on the audible samples. Dana story may be good as she is tough and smart as a whip. She actually is the glue to this story, not Brad. Book 1 & 2 may showcase Brad more, but you have to buy the books to know.
Any additional comments?
ps: Clarance is just plain creepy, but adds to this story. Side note: this is my 2nd read from this author. So far After Dark seems the best story read by Angela Dawe, you will need a tissue.
