The crime scene is barely cold when the senator's estranged daughter arrives hurling shocking allegations of murder at her father, despite a roomful of well-heeled witnesses who can provide Simmons with an alibi. Meanwhile, D.C.'s rumor mills and spin machines shift into high gear as speculation swirls around a tabloid- and TV-ready prime suspect: Jonell Marbury, a dashing lawyer turned lobbyist at a powerful K Street firm - and the last person to see the victim alive. But Rotondi harbors his own unsettling suspicions. And after a second woman is killed, he discovers that a long-buried secret from his past may hold the key to cracking the case.
Aided by sleuthing ex-attorneys Mac and Annabel Smith, Rotondi reawakens the prosecutorial skills that served him so well in his gang-busting days, following the stench of dirty money and dirtier tricks across the country and across the thresholds of back rooms and front offices alike - where doing the right thing is for fools and taking on the system is a dead man's gambit.
Don't miss more from Margaret Truman.

I listened to this book while I was recuperating from major surgery. It was an ideal story to take my mind off my condition.
This is a good "whodunit" that takes place in Washington D.C. There are many interesting characters, and plenty of plot twists.
This is a murder mystery, so there is violence. However, the violence is not described graphically. There are some sexual situations in the story. They are not described graphically.
I consider this book an entertaining, well crafted mystery.
Narrator Phil Gigante does a fine job. I liked his deep voice. His diction is excellent. I never had a problem understanding what he was saying.
Politics, Corruption, Murder
Yes, I went back a few times to see what I had missed. So good. Even back tracking made it a better listen.
The whole book has sections that could be called favorites. The stories with their sub-stories makes your say whoa, then it mellows, then here comes another whoa. The story made me wonder other that murder, how much of this crap goes on. Did I reach to far for that thought????
It's just amazing how the pen and reality are similar.
Really good story, not mushy, not overly violent but a few twists and turns that are enjoyable.
Yes, I would consider this version better than a print version because it came to life courtesy of the narrator!
Yes, with Murder on K Street I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! Margaret Truman wrote so many twists and turns into the novel. It was amazing and I didn't want to go to sleep. I wanted to finish the book.
The end was my fave I think. I won't give it away with a spoiler though.
Yes, I wanted to listen to it in one sitting but couldn't. Beautifully written and narrated though.
