keeps you juggling too many characters from the beginning that lack development. overall a decent storyline.

The second book of the Capitol Murders series, I picked this up from the library mostly based on the series name. Having lived near and worked around DC, the setting is well known to me.Revolving around the death of a prominent US Senator, Truman takes us deep in the political intrigues of a senator's family, and the skeletons rattling around in the closet. Who had the motive to kill the Senator? One of his two sons, his adopted daughter, the head of a cult, his wife, a television talk show host, a rival senator, a SIG, or someone else entirely? Follow Lydia's investigation as the special investigator appointed to a Senate commitee group to "find out what happened."

Like other Margaret Truman murder mysteries in her series set in the District of Columbia, this book is enjoyable entertainment. Her books bring the familiar buildings of the nation's capital to life. For the onetime area resident, it's a visit back to the land of national memorials, museums, and monuments; to marble and granite government buildings with their columns, domes, balustrades, and stone steps; to Rock Creek Park, The Mall, the Potomac River, and Georgetown; and to national treasures like the Smithsonian. Her stories achieve mystery without resorting to gimmicks, no cleverly-authored trickery to fool the reader, no artificial and contrived plotting. Her characters are interesting and they often reappear from story to story. For the most part they are complex but clear, with motivations and backgrounds typical of the people who come to the nation's capital for fame and fortune, for power and service, for good and bad.
