Item Details

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 that someone in the White House is a murderer. Their only problem? Staying alive long enough to prove it.--From publisher description.

Murder,and the white house is a
great way to have a great story teller as Phillip margolin shine.
enjoyable reading.

"How's this for a premise: the sitting U.S. president, who's fighting for reelection, might be a serial killer. Private detective Dana Cutler witnessed an assignation between the president and a young woman; the next day, the woman's mutilated body is found, possibly the victim of a killer stalking the streets of D.C. known as "the D.C. Ripper." Meanwhile, on the West Coast, a junior lawyer uncovers a link between a long-ago murder and the current president. Coincidence? Is the president in fact a serial killer? Or is someone else protecting his serial philandering? While some readers may find it a bit hard to believe, most will be rewarded with a fast-paced, twisty read."
