Set throughout our nation’s political power center, the compelling, intriguing stories from former first daughter and master storyteller Margaret Truman have delighted legions of fans. Now in one thrilling volume, here are three classic suspense novels in the acclaimed Capital Crimes series.


Clarence Sutherland, head clerk to the Chief Justice, is found murdered in the courtroom, sitting in his boss’s chair with a hole in his head. Who would want to kill such a bright young man? The answer: practically everybody.

“Truman’s hints as to the real state of Washington are terrifyingly true.”
–Chicago Sun-Times


When literary agent Barrie Mayer dies from what looks like a heart attack at London’s Heathrow Airport, her best friend, CIA agent Collette Cahill, is ordered to discover the truth–and to find Barrie’s missing briefcase.

“[Truman] invades the turf of John le Carré. . . . [Murder in the CIA] is very good.”
–Los Angeles Times Book Review


Congressman Paul Latham died clutching a 9-mm pistol, and one man suspects the shattering truth: The suicide was a carefully planned murder–which will prove to be part of a chilling conspiracy that reaches halfway around the world.

“Truman ‘knows the forks’ in the nation’s capital and how to pitchfork her readers into a web of murder and detection.”
–The Christian Science Monitor
