Synopses & Reviews
Fiona FitzGerald, a senator’s daughter turned Washington, D.C., homicide detective, is back for her fifth gripping thriller, investigating a murder with explosive consequences on Capitol Hill.

The venomous scribe had made a living by dishing dirt on—and destroying the careers of—the nabobs of Washington’s elite. So there are almost as many suspects as columns Ms. Dearborn had written . . . or was about to write. Through a combination of wit, intuition and creative deduction, Fiona plumbs the secret of the crime and zeros in on the killer, resulting in a heady brew of murder and intrigue in the corridors of power of our nation’s capital.
