Publisher's Summary

Ace reporter John Cotton is a fly on the wall, seeing all, hearing all, and keeping out of sight. But the game changes when he finds his best friend's corpse sprawled on the marble floor of the central rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. Suddenly Cotton knows too much about a scandal centered around a senatorial candidate, a million-dollar scam, and a murder. And he hears the pursuing footsteps of powerful people who have something to hide... and a willingness to kill to keep their secrets hidden.

Another exciting Hillerman book!

Hillerman did write other novels then just the Leaphorn and Chee series. It was exciting as expected. The technology was dated i.e. No cellphones and printed newspapers but still makes for a great read/listen!

Intriguing and well read.

Hillerman was a master at building suspense without resorting to the current common practice of using unnecessary graphic detail. This story deals with political intrigue, mysterious accidents, misappropriation of funds, and shadowy figures seeking to silence reporter John Cotton. Erik Bergman's excellent reading keeps the listener engaged in every scene. Very enjoyable!
