Laura is a young intern in Washington, D.C., working for handsome and likable Congressman Hal Gannon. Laura falls for the charming Gannon, but when she catches a stewardess at Gannon's apartment, she vows to destroy him.
Private investigator Robert Brixton is a former cop who has also worked for the FBI. When Laura goes missing, Brixton is hired by Laura's family to gain insight into the case that the police might have missed.
Brixton tracks down rumors about Gannon-a staunchly moral "family advocate" according to his political position, but a womanizer according to gossip-but the congressman vehemently denies having anything untoward to do with Laura. Then Laura is found dead in the congressional cemetery, and many more questions are raised. . .
Donald Bain thrills again with Margaret Truman's Internship in Murder, the riveting next installment in the Margaret Truman's beloved Capital Crimes series.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
In Bain's pedestrian third Capital Crimes novel (after 2014's Margaret Truman's Undiplomatic Murder), Washington, D.C., PI Robert Brixton looks into the disappearance of Laura Bennett, an attractive, ambitious 22-year-old intern, who was working for Florida congressman Hal Gannon. Laura's wealthy father, Lucas Bennett, is a major financial supporter of Gannon. Lawyer Mackenzie Smith, a friend of Lucas, tries to contact Laura, but he gets no help from Gannon's office and a strange reaction when he talks to Gannon at a party. When Laura's body turns up in the Public Vault of the Congressional Cemetery, Gannon becomes the chief suspect in Brixton's eyes, if not in those of Superintendent of Detectives Zeke Borgeldt. While Brixton's investigation uncovers no incontrovertible evidence of Gannon's rumored affairs, it does provoke another murder and an attempt on Brixton's life. The political insider edge has worn dull, and Bain brings little suspense to this less than capital tale.
