LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW

The alleged murderer has his share of secrets, but Falk smells conspiracy in the air. And although she turns to her mentor, law professor Mackenzie Smith for help, she's got to beat a cunning madman and a nuclear blast....

About the Author:

Margaret Truman won faithful readers with her works of biography and fiction, particularly her ongoing series of Capital Crimes mysteries. Her novels let us into the corridors of power and privilege, and poverty and pageantry, in the nation’s capital. She was the author of many nonfiction books, including The President’s House, in which she shares some of the secrets and history of the White House where she once resided. Truman lived in Manhattan and passed away in 2008.

From Publishers Weekly:

In characteristic unadorned and bloodless prose Truman ( Murder at the National Cathedral ) delivers this formulaic mystery bound in conspiracy, the 11th in her series of capital crimes. Air Force helicopter pilot and lawyer Major Margit Falk is assigned the defense of Robert Cobol, a CIA officer charged with the murder of Dr. Richard Joycelen. The victim, deputy director of a defense research project devoted to small nuclear devices, was shot inside the Pentagon, purportedly the most secure building in the world. While Margit works up Cobol's defense with the help of mentor Mackensiesic Smith, who has featured in earlier Truman mysteries, world powers adjust to the nuclear capability recently exhibited by a small Arab nation. Margit's boyfriend, Jeff Foxboro, is helping his boss, the senator who heads the committee investigating how the country's despotic leader got the bomb. Not surprisingly, the murder and the bomb are linked, a connection Margit must sacrifice her career to prove. Guidebook descriptions of Washington sights and lengthy discussions of federal agencies and departments provide copious background, but this simplistic tale generates little suspense. Literary Guild selection.
