Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

William Bernhardts bestselling novels featuring Oklahoma defense attorney Ben Kincaid capture the bare-knuckles reality of high-stakes criminal defense, as lofty ideals of justice clash with power, corruption, and wealth. In Capitol Murder, Bernhardts hard-charging hero takes on his most shocking, headline-making case yet.

Kincaids legal success has earned him a dubious reward: a journey through the looking glass into the Beltway. Here, in the heart of the nations capital, a powerful U.S. senator has been caught first in a sordid sex scandal, then in a case of murder.

Senate aide Veronica Cooper was found in a secret Senate office beneath the Capitol building, on Senator Todd Glancys favorite couch, blood pouring from the knife wound in her throat. The young womans death comes on the heels of the release of a sordid videotape depicting her and Senator Glancy in compromising positions.

With the senators reputation in tatters, the evidence against him-as a sexual predator and possibly a killer-mounts. By the time a nationally televised murder trial begins, Kincaid and his team know theyre facing the challenge of a lifetime. According to public opinion, and even in Kincaids most private thoughts, Glancy is one more politician who cannot admit his own culpability.

But while a dramatic trial unfolds in the courtroom-loaded with pitfalls, traps, and an astounding betrayal-another trial is taking place on the mean streets of D.C., as Kincaids investigator pursues a young woman who was a friend of Veronica Coopers, plunging Kincaid into a bizarre world of Goths, sadomasochists, and a community of self-proclaimed vampires. Somewhere in this violent underworld lies the secret behind Veronica Coopers demise . . . and the crux of Senator Glancys innocence or guilt.

In a case that pits Kincaid and his freewheeling partner Christina McCall against the brutal machinery of Washington politics, the answers they seek are hidden in a murderous maze of lies and hidden motives. And in William Bernhardts best novel yet, getting to the truth is an unparalleled experience in pure, satisfying suspense.
