Publisher's Summary

Arriving home from a fund-raising dinner, senior Illinois senator Lyle Simmons discovers his wife's brutally bludgeoned body. And like any savvy politician with presidential aspirations, his first move is to phone his attorney. In this case, it's his old friend and college roommate, former DA Philip Rotondi, who gamely agrees to step out of quiet retirement and into the thick of a D.C.-style political, criminal, and public relations maelstrom from which no one will escape unscathed.

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.

Good Storytelling

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 as usual

If you could sum up Murder on K Street in three words, what would they be?

Politics, Corruption, Murder

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

Yes, I went back a few times to see what I had missed. So good. Even back tracking made it a better listen.

Which scene was your favorite?

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????

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

It's just amazing how the pen and reality are similar.

Any additional comments?

Really good story, not mushy, not overly violent but a few twists and turns that are enjoyable.

Wow, what a story!

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on K Street to be better than the print version?

Yes, I would consider this version better than a print version because it came to life courtesy of the narrator!

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

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end was my fave I think. I won't give it away with a spoiler though.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wanted to listen to it in one sitting but couldn't. Beautifully written and narrated though.
