A host of vivid characters people the narrative, including a lovely State Department analyst who finds herself attracted to undercover types; a militia leader in Idaho who leads his people into gunfire; a reporter at odds with his boss but not with a good story; and a secretary of state who loves baseball slightly more than her job.
Fast-paced and informative about flying, food, statecraft, and the violent "wetwork" under the dryly elegant exterior of diplomacy, Margaret Truman's Murder in Foggy Bottom is another winner in the Capital Crimes series.

Great book, okay narration
I've read most of Margaret Truman's books and this one is just a good as the others. It could be happening in real life today and her insight of the inner workings of the government make it even more interesting.
This is my first time listening to one of her books. Alan Sklar's voice just didn't have enough range for me. Many of the characters sounded similar. I noticed my attention wandering and I would even lose track of who was speaking.
I will continue to read Margaret Truman but I'll stick to reading them to myself.

If you could sum up Murder in Foggy Bottom in three words, what would they be?
Missiles, Russians, FBI
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, the comparison between the two sources of information about the missiles had me going for a while. Good plot and sub-plots.
Have you listened to any of Alan Sklar’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, never. Not a bad job.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reaction just liked the book. Great detail makes you be part of what's going on.
