Murder in Georgetown
by Margaret Truman
Publisher:  Arbor House
Copyright:  1986
Book Club Edition

Washington's most powerful politicians, journalists, businessmen, and celebrity hangers-on had waited eagerly for their invitations.  It was one of Georgetown's most interesting parties -- a ride down the C and O canal in a mule-pulled barge.  It was great fun; certainly Harry Fleet, fur trader and founder of Georgetown, would have been proud.  But of course he's been dead for centuries -- unlike the uninvited corpse found floating in the canal.

The victim is Valerie Frolich:  senator's daughter, Georgetown graduate student, and a rising young star in the fiercely competitive world of investigative journalism.  The story she leaves behind would certainly have been the biggest of her young life -- an evil web of intrigue that starts with plummeting real estate prices and escalates to a violent entanglement of murder, bribery, kidnapping, and international espionage.

Now that story belongs to Joe Potamos, who covers the police beat for the Washington Post and knows where all the skeletons of the nation's capital are closeted.  He's going to need every sordid secret he can discover to unravel this case.  All he has to do is stay alive to make the connection.

Once again Margaret Truman has given us her inimitable insider's view of Washington, D.C.  For it is after hours, after the desks have been tidied, the closed-door meetings concluded, that the powerful return home to Georgetown.  There, behind the red brick facades of the elegant townhouses, the negotiating continues in hushed tones.  In her most ambitious novel to date, Miss Truman draws a chillingly realistic picture of how the real deals are made among Washington's power brokers.
