    "They're back! A Really Fun Series."

    Don't be turned off by the 3 star rating. This is a really good, fast paced thriller. It's just that the more books I review the more I see the difference in good to great. There are many reviews I'd like rewrite, because I tend to be generous in praising books.

    In the first book of the series, Executive Privilege, I was thoroughly entertained with Margolin's humor and the tension between most of the characters. Here there is the fascinating and mysterious side story of escaped serial killer Clarence Little which seemed more of a convenient "get out of a bind" ploy by the author. Still, Clarence is a master manipulator. His sequences in the tale are still quite riveting.

    Jonathan Davis is great as the narrator.

    If you liked the characters in Executive Privilege, (I love them!) you'll enjoy this book. The mystery is good as well.

    (If this review is helpful, please rate it!)

    I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.

    "Many twists and turns in this one"

    This is like a roller coaster ride with all of the twists and turns that the plot takes. It is indeed a well devised mystery. It kept me guessing, trying to string it all together like a puzzle. To me that is a good thing, making a mystery more enjoyable. I will definitely buy then next in this series.

    "A Rodeo Ride"

    Margolin does it again, another Political Thriller racing to a great end. This is better than reality within the Beltway.

    "Very Entertaining and Suspenseful"

    Yes, I agree that you kinda know that the suspense surrounding what Clarence Little (the serial killer) is up to is just a convenient ploy by the author to bring added suspense to the story, but that's okay because he brings it all together in the end in a good way, and there are other suspenseful parts to the story. Dana Cutter is my favorite character. She is a superwoman. A detective who can handle different weapons and has good instincts. I enjoyed Capitol Murder just as much as I enjoyed Executive Privilege. I will read more of Phillip Margolin. Jonathan Davis is an excellent performer. He must speak several languages because his range includes several dialects.

    "Entertaining and interesting."
    What made the experience of listening to Capitol Murder the most enjoyable?

    Though I'm not into legal matters, I like to hear about the maneuvers and intricacies of this field; these books do just that in a very simple and mysterius way.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not quite, but I found it interesting. It was a clever spin.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jonathan Davis?

    Iam an admirer of his narrating style; however, this was not one of his best. Lethargic would be the way to describe this book's narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Surprising and different; I thinkkk the story is quite intriguing.


    Any additional comments?

    The author seems to have another book in mind, but I don't think that should be the ccase. I believe the subject is getting a little thin. On a separate note, what can we do to make the studios understand that the noise at the beginning of the books is nothing but a useless distraction? Not to mention those books where gthey opt to incorporate more noise in between chapters...! Really annoying!
