Publisher's Summary

When Oklahoma attorney Ben Kincaid came to Washington, D.C., to defend a senator caught in a red-hot sex scandal turned murder case, he never dreamed he'd end up trading the courtroom for the Senate chamber. After his not-so-distinguished client stepped down, Ben found himself appointed to complete the sullied senator's term. Now, having barely gotten his political sea legs, he must rise to yet another challenge: advising the president's next Supreme Court nominee during the sometimes thorny confirmation process. Luckily, Judge Thaddeus Roush's popularity on both sides of the aisle looks to make him a shoo-in - until he decides to out himself on national television, igniting a Beltway uproar and setting the stage for a bare-knuckle partisan brawl. Forced to scramble for spin control, Ben hastily calls a press conference for the now controversial candidate. But then, on live TV, a brutally murdered woman is discovered in the judge's backyard. For the political forces out to torpedo the nomination of a gay Supreme Court justice, the shocking turn of events is pure gold. But Team Kincaid isn't about to let the right man for the job get derailed.
In Capitol Threat, William Bernhardt serves up a resounding one-two punch of political intrigue and legal suspense, peppered with a volley of his trademark plot twists, sly wit, and persistent thrills.

Capitol Threat (Unabridged

A fast paced great read! Laugh out loud moments! Bernhardt skillfully interwove layers of intrigue that kept me anxious for the next plot line. His inside glimpses of lobbying activities and senate confirmation hearings were intense and sobering.

Liberal Propaganda

Book displays an extreme liberal agenda which many may not agree with and find very tiring. Final theme is that even violent murder is excusable if to unmask the murderer would stifle the liberal agenda. Murder may be bad but drilling for oil in Alaska is worse, yada, yada, yada. Extreme liberals who agree with such radical views will love this. Everyone else will probably find it both trite and even offensive. I couldn't wait for it to end.
