Friday, April 13, 2012, Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, 6:30pm reading and signing.

Phillip Margolin has written fifteen New York Times bestsellers, including his latest novels, Capitol Murder, Supreme Justice, Executive Privilege, all three from his Washington Trilogy. Each displays a unique, compelling insider’s view of criminal behavior which comes from the author’s long background as a criminal defence attorney who has handled 30 murder cases. Winner of the Distinguished Northwest Writer Award and the Spotted Owl Award for Executive Privilege, Phillip Margolin lives in Portland, OR. More on him and his books.

On the heels of a year full of misbehaving elected officials, such as Anthony Weiner, DSK, and others, Phillip Margolin returns with a Washington, D.C. based thriller that questions whether our representative’s sex scandals could put national security at risk. 

CAPITOL MURDER (4/3/2012) is the third instalment of his gritty political fiction series that includes Executive Privilege and Supreme Justice. In this riveting page-turner, Margolin returns reader favorites Brad Miller and Dana Cutler to Capitol Hill as they encounter a serial killer who has escaped from death row, and terrorists who plot to blow up an NFL stadium. 

Meet Jack Carson, a United States Senator with a Top Secret security clearance and a penchant for affairs. Despite warnings from his vigilant chief of staff, Jack follows his lust right into a nest of terrorists. When the breathtakingly beautiful campaign donor with ties to an international terrorist organization is found mutilated, the serial killer (and Brad Miller’s former client) Clarence Little appears to be involved. With his location unknown, his sights on D.C. and possibly Brad, it is up to the duo to beat the clock and solve the twisted plot before it is too late for them both. 
Brad and Dana’s discoveries lead them right up to the Senate’s door, unmasking years of corruption and intrigue that are eerily reminiscent of real-life political scandals. This work points the lens of fiction on the real ripple effect relationships have. With Margolin’s unique multi-narrative style, CAPITOL MURDER delivers readers a page turning thriller sure to keep them up at night and looking over their shoulders in dark alleys.
