3, Dana Cutler Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

“Phillip Margolin knows how to pack in the thrills.” —Tess Gerritsen

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 16, 2012 – PI Dana Cutler and attorney Brad Miller, now working as a congressional legal aide, contend with sex scandals, an escaped murderer, and a looming major terrorist attack on U.S. soil in bestseller Margolin s busy third Washington, D.C., thriller (after 2010 s Supreme Justice). Cutler is dispatched to Portland, Ore., where Miller s boss, Sen. Jack Carson, has gotten involved with a Middle Eastern seductress, Jessica Koshani, who possesses a DVD showing Carson in a compromising position. Koshani blackmails Carson into returning to D.C., where he s to report to her on what the authorities know about a suicide bombing her employers are plotting. Meanwhile, Miller must keep track of Clarence Little, a serial killer and former client sent to prison in 2008 s Executive Privilege, who s been sending Miller cryptically threatening letters since escaping custody in Oregon. Some readers may struggle with the large cast and many scene shifts, but Margolin manages to pull everything together in the end.

Capital Murder

Great reading....will keep you in suspense

Who wrote this trash?

I have read several of Margolin's books. His previous books have been enjoyable. This was clearly an exception. After 300 or so pages I couldn't take any more. Poorly written, predictable plot with ridiculous characters. It has to be pretty bad to put it down after 300 pages, and it was!

Didn't get it

Ultimately, the book got interesting with about 30 pages left. It skipped around so much that I had a real hard time following it and the book seemed to be written with so much filler just to fill pages that it was really hard for me to read. I'm one of those that can't start another book until I'm finished with what I'm reading and this one took me about 4 weeks. It was almost a chore to read it.
