A Murder Involving Unsavory Members of the FBI
This is really two stories. In one, we see the murder of George Prichard, an FBI agent in Washington. He was not liked by his colleagues, but an FBI team sets out to find his killer. Soon, they run into puzzling roadblocks. Christine Saksis, the acting head of the investigating team, becomes suspicious when roadblocks become active, but concealed, opposition by the FBI directors. At this point, we see the second story in this book, in which FBI directors engage in coverups, spying on agents, and character assassination to keep the FBI's squeaky clean image. If you like a low-key mystery, devoid of gore, this is for you.
Poor even for Truman
The story improved slightly once Bill's character was introduced, but it was too late to save this book. I didn't give a rip what happened to any of the characters, and Truman herself seemed more interested in showing off her knowledge of DC restaurants. Her "sleuth" was just another stock Truman character: naive young woman spends several years in an intelligence organization before discovering that power plays and mind games are afoot, then resigns in a disillusioned huff. This one didn't even do any serious sleuthing...she just went around pissing people off until clues just popped out of their mouths. And the plotting was just plain sloppy. I've already forgotten what the book was supposed to be "about."
this is the ultimate mystery by Truman.
This is her best book ever. And wow, what an ending. a huge masterpiece. Who did it? Ask the president's daughter.
