When the body of special FBI agent George Pritchard is found hanging behind the target at the Bureau's firing range, foul play is immediately suspected. Ross Lizenby and Christine Saksis are assigned to the case. As their search for answers gets underway, it soon becomes apparent to Ross and Christine that the Bureau is hiding something. But would they go so far as to murder one of their own to keep their secrets buried?
Refusing to back down, Ross and Christine continue to investigate. But their quest for the truth is complicated when they become romantically involved. And when Christine stumbles upon more incriminating evidence, she must decide whether her loyalties should lie with the Bureau—or with the truth.

This novel was very engaging. Having grown up in Washington DC, President Harry Truman's daughter, Margaret, shows her readers the ins and outs of a society most of us only see on TV shows and movies. This particular work takes us into the FBI's headquarters and has us wondering and investigating alongside Agent Christine Saksis to find out who killed Special Agent George Pritchard. The journey to the answer is well written and clever, and the truth is more than you would expect.
