Deadly intrigue, breathtaking twists, and exhilarating suspense await in the third book of Phillip Margolin's New York Times bestselling Washington Trilogy. Hot on the heels of Supreme Justice, Margolin delivers another heart-pounding thriller featuring private investigator Dana Cutler and lawyer Brad Miller, who are forced by a terrorist attack on a football stadium-and by the escape of Executive Privilege's convicted serial killer Clarence Little-to follow a sinister trail of lies, treachery, and betrayal into an unexpected new arena: the U.S. Congress.

Back cover copy

Convicted serial killer Clarence Little has escaped from death row in Oregon. A murder matching Little's M.O. is discovered in the Georgetown home of powerful Oregon United States Senator Jack Carson. And Carson, a high-ranking member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has disappeared.

Washington, D.C., attorney Brad Miller, the senator's legislative assistant, sends private investigator Dana Cutler to Oregon. While she is uncovering the senator's shady past, a terrorist cell is plotting to destroy a packed football stadium. What Brad and Dana discover links the escaped serial killer and the missing senator to a horrific event that could dwarf the 9/11 attacks.
