Once More Investigating A Capitol Crime

Monument to Murder: A Capital Crimes NovelMonument to Murder: A Capital Crimes Novel by Margaret Truman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It was such a loss when Margaret Truman died--her novels set in Washington, D.C with the McKenzies as a husband and wife team who find themselves involved in various investigations of the deaths of people in high places, were always so well written and absorbing. The reader had a sense of being there and rubbing elbows with powerful politicians and some of their lesser known henchmen whilst sipping a touch of Blantons with branch or a cube. Coming across another installment of the Capitol Crime series seemed too good to be true--was it a partially completed manuscript finished off by a lesser author and disappointing as a result? No, it was not--although the ending seemed a bit abrupt and not altogether satisfying. There is another tale available now and, having thoroughly enjoyed this outing, I will certainly read it,too. It is always hard to say good-bye to a favorite author. Happily, I needn't do so, yet!
