Includes a teaser excerpt from Capitol Murder, the third book in the Washington Trilogy! The first book in Phillip Margolin's New York Times bestselling Washington Trilogy, a powerful tale of murder that snakes its way through Washington, D.C.'s halls of power, leading straight to the White House and the most powerful office on earth. When private detective Dana Cutler is hired by an attorney with powerful political connections, the assignment seems simple enough: follow a pretty college student named Charlotte Walsh and report on where she goes and whom she sees. But then the unexpected happens. One night, Cutler follows Walsh to a secret meeting with Christopher Farrington, the president of the United States. The following morning, Walsh's dead body shows up and Cutler has to run for her life. In Oregon, Brad Miller, a junior associate in a huge law firm is working on the appeal of a convicted serial killer. Clarence Little, now on death row, claims he was framed for the murder of a teenager who, at the time of her death, worked for the then governor, Christopher Farrington. Suddenly, a small-time private eye and a fledgling lawyer find themselves in possession of evidence that suggests thatsomeone in the White House is a murderer. Their only problem? Staying alive long enough to prove it. Executive Privilege, with its nonstop action, unforgettable characters, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, proves once again that Phillip MargolinA??whose work has been hailed as "frighteningly plausible" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and "twisted and brilliant" (Chicago Tribune)A??belongs in the top echelon of thriller writers.

Professional reviews

"When young Oregon attorney Brad Miller constructs a routine appeal for a convicted serial killer, he comes to believe that one of the murders the killer was convicted of is actually unsolved. Meanwhile, a troubled P.I. on the East Coast asserts that the latest victim of an active killer dubbed the D.C. Ripper was a mistress of the President. The common thread: the President was once the Oregon governor. Narrator Jonathan Davis delivers the fast-paced action with a controlled punch. His unpretentious characterizations add credibility to the key players in the story, and his restraint conceals of the identity of the killer. Inconsistent pronunciation of geographic names may be annoying to Pacific Northwest listeners. But thanks to Davis's solid reading, this implausible story makes for entertaining listening.
