Margaret Truman had a way about her when it came to depicting the world of Washington government. Not great literature, to be sure, but certainly entertaining. The Secretary of State is murdered in the, where else, the White House. Why him, why there? A relatively young and inexperienced attorney on the President' s staff is assigned by the President himself to get to the bottom of the mystery. Along the way, he becomes involved with global trade, family intrigue, bribery, sexual favors and, have I left anything out? I hope you get my drift; there's something for everyone. Oh yes, did I mention a surprise ending? It's a typical Margaret Truman novel, so sit back with your favorite beverage, put your feet up and enjoy..

For a first book, it was good. Interesting characters. Built suspense with a slight surprise ending (I had guessed some of it, but not all.) Having already read many of this series, I can see a slight difference from the later ones - there isn't as much in-depth, behind the scenes look at life in the book's location (in this book, the White House). After reading most of the other Capital Crimes books, I came away with an informative picture of life in the National Gallery of Art, the House, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian, etc. This story mostly centered around the characters with not much atmosphere. It did become a page turner all the way to the end. The series gets better and better.

I absolutely adored this book. To be fair the first chapter (54 pages) were very, very slow. I was very, very concerned. However, once the book got started (Chapter 2) it was wonderful. Admittedly I'm a policy work who lives DC and politics, but I loved this book. The policy details, the history, and, yes, the mystery. The mystery itself was well thought out, as was the characters and the plotting. I honestly don't think anyone but a former White House residence and insider could have written this with the realism that Ms Truman did, and I doubt anyone else could have gotten away with the plot.

A great book that you I couldn't put down (after I got 50 pages in.)
Ishnjurus
I find this story a bit boring, and dry, even though there are several scenes that could have been full of emotion. I also wasn't a fan of all the body shaming and sexist comments/ attitudes, though I'm sure many of those were simply the prevailing beliefs when it was written. I bumped it up a star because it's set in DC and there was a bit of behind the scenes info on the white house.
Bloodhammer
The first few chapters were a little slow going, but then I really got into it. The characters were fairly interesting, but I prefer more insight into their lives. The end was really great and made up for the slow beginning.

3.5 star. The President assigns his Special Counsel Advisor to solve the murder. He wants to keep as much as he can from the press. As the killing is being looked into you get some insight into politics and things that possibly go on in Washington. Wasn't a bad start to the series. It will be interesting to see how the next one takes place after the finish in this one.
Daiktilar
Solid story, well written; perfect for a mystery lover. I couldn't help but imagine a young Francis Underwood as this story's President Webster. Love a good Washington intrigue.
Suspenseful and well written. The intriguing plot has some holes put pulls you along fast enough that you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. The ending was abrupt and left a lot of unanswered questions. All in all an enjoyable, game say and quick read.
