I've read several but I enjoyed it like it was the first one I ever read. I think the Associated Press said it best (about Margaret Truman as author), "She's up-to-the-minute. And she's good but you get the drift! :)

Love this series - and this may be the last. Ms. Truman has passed away

Rosalie Curzon, a Washington, . Love this series - and this may be the last. Truman has passed away. Read most of them - maybe a few on shelf yet to catch up on. I've enjoyed some others more than this one - if you're reading Ms. Truman, I think the ones set in specific Washington DC building and featuring Mac & Anabelle Smith are the best.

The book that made Capote's name, "In Cold Blood" is a seminal work of modern prose, a remarkable synthesis of journalistic skill and powerfully evocative narrative.

In an esteemed writing career spanning nearly three decades, Margaret Truman penned twenty-four thrilling Capital Crimes novels, which The Atlanta Journal-Constitution called a “dazzling series.” Now, in her crowning achievement, Murder Inside the Beltway, Truman brilliantly shows that politics can be not only dirty but downright deadly.Rosalie Curzon, a Washington, D.C., call girl, is found bludgeoned to death in her Adams-Morgan apartment. Investigating the grisly homicide are Walt Hatcher, a tough, sour, intolerant twenty-three-year veteran of the D.C. police department; Detective Mary Hall, who, unhappy with the way women are treated on the force, is conflicted about her career; and rookie cop Matthew Jackson, an introspective young man and the product of a mixed-race marriage, whom Hatcher looks down on.The murder scene is in a disturbing state of disarray, suggesting that Rosalie had fought to the bitter end. Then Hall discovers a video camera nestled high on a bookshelf. Had the victim taped some of her clients during their sexual liaisons?As the investigation proceeds, so does business inside the Beltway. President Burton Pyle is running for reelection. His opponent, consummate politician Robert Colgate, is expected to easily defeat Pyle, whose administration has been rife with corruption and scandal. Colgate, though, is not without cracks in his slick exterior. Rumors swirl about his failing marriage and various dalliances. Moreover, there’s no love lost between the two candidates: The campaign has morphed into one of the most distasteful and nasty in memory.Then, on a bright Saturday afternoon on the Washington Mall, the daughter of Colgate’s closest friend is kidnapped. The abduction rocks the nation’s capital, but no one is prepared for the bombshell about to hit the city, an explosive development that erupts when Detectives Hall and Jackson uncover a shocking connection between the kidnapping and the Curzon case–and a killer whom no one will see coming.

Love her books! Engaging, well written, set in historical locale of Washington DC. Never disappointed in her books and am now hooked on reading all of her mysteries!
Mr Freeman
I've loved Margaret Truman's mystery books since the first one. It was evident that she may have developed the plot idea, worked a bit on the characters, but it was also evident that someone wrote the novel based on her ideas. They had trouble capturing her writing technique. But I'm glad someone "wrote" this last novel of hers. I will miss her excellent plot twists and turns and particularly her inside knowledge of the Beltway. Goodbye, Margaret.

All the Margaret Truman books are fun reads if you are familiar with Washington D. C.

This was an awesome book! I could hardly put it down, and I read it in two days! It flowed very nicely, and there was no repetitive or repeats on topics to get the point across like there are in so many other novels. It was very well written! These Capital Crime stories are the best!

Remarkably brings up links to today's political atmosphere. As a native Washingtonian, descriptions of my home town added to its interest.

As always Margaret Truman has written a sizzler about life in Wahington DC. And who better to write about the capital and politics. Beginning with the murder of a prostitute who filmed her Johns in action and leading up to a Presidential Election with lots of power brokers, unhappy spouses, seamy side of life and crooks galore, it's a real whizbang of a tale. My only regret is that it will be Truman's last book. I have enjoyed all the Capital Crimes series over the years.

I have enjoyed all of the books I have read by this author. Easy, but interesting reads.
This is a good story. It kept my interest throughout. The author goes off on tangents at times, but I've learned to ignore them. I only have one of her Capital Crime books yet to read, then I will have read every one of them.
