Description

A gripping new mystery from New York Times bestselling author Maggie Sefton

Molly Malone was driven from Washington, D.C., by political back-stabbing, scandals, and personal heartbreak. But now she's starting a new life in the one place she swore she'd never come back to.

When Molly's only Washington job prospect falls through, her politico niece, Karen, sets her up with a position in the office of a freshman senator. As the former wife of a congressman, Molly is alarmed to hear that Karen is having an affair with her boss, congressional chief of staff Jed Molinoff. Just days later, Molly finds Karen shot to death. Discovering that Molinoff has ransacked Karen's apartment, Molly investigates further . . . and finds herself in the crosshairs of a shadowy political group that's killing anyone who gets in its way.

"Sefton has a sharp ear for dialog and knack for writing strong female characters that serve her well as she ventures into suspense."--Library Journal

"Welcome to Molly Malone's Washington...where parties and power go hand in hand with mystery and murder."--Brian Freeman, author of Spilled Blood
