Publisher's Summary

Private investigator Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller have overcome more than a few daunting challenges and powerful enemies to see justice done. Now wicked threats old and new are about to bring them together once again. Convicted serial killer Clarence Little has escaped from death row in Oregon, and Brad receives threatening messages in D.C., where he is working for Senator Jack Carson, a high-ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. A dead body, murdered according to Little's M.O., is found in the senator's Georgetown home, and Carson has disappeared. While Dana is in Oregon digging into Carson's shady background, a terrorist cell is poised to destroy a packed professional football stadium in one of the biggest attacks on American soil. As the senator's personal life begins to dovetail with the cell's evil plan, Brad and Dana will risk it all again to uncover the truth and save their country.

They're back! A Really Fun Series.

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.

- Charles Atkinson "Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?"

Very Entertaining and Suspenseful

Yes, I agree that you kinda know that the suspense surrounding what Clarence Little (the serial killer) is up to is just a convenient ploy by the author to bring added suspense to the story, but that's okay because he brings it all together in the end in a good way, and there are other suspenseful parts to the story. Dana Cutter is my favorite character. She is a superwoman. A detective who can handle different weapons and has good instincts. I enjoyed Capitol Murder just as much as I enjoyed Executive Privilege. I will read more of Phillip Margolin. Jonathan Davis is an excellent performer. He must speak several languages because his range includes several dialects.
