Capitol Murder (Paperback)
Bestselling author Phillip Margolin returns to Washington, D.C., with an electrifying race to track an escaped serial killer and cut off a major terrorist attack.
Convicted serial killer Clarence Little has escaped from death row in Oregon, and his former attorney Brad Miller receives threatening messages in Washington, D.C., where he is now working for Senator Jack Carson, a high-ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. A dead body, murdered according to Little's M.O., is found in the senator's Georgetown home, and Carson has disappeared. While Brad's friend and private investigator Dana Cutler is in Oregon digging into Carson's shady background, a terrorist cell is poised to destroy a packed professional football stadium in one of the biggest attacks on American soil. As the senator's personal life begins to dovetail with the cell's evil plan, Brad and Dana will risk it all to uncover the truth and save their country.
