About the Book
K Street Killing (Washington Whodunit)
4th in Series
Camel Press (July 15, 2018)
It’s the height of campaign season, and instead of relishing newlywed bliss with her husband Doug Hollingsworth, Capitol Hill staffer Kit Marshall is busy with a tough reelection fight for her boss, member of Congress Maeve Dixon. Before Maeve and her staff–Kit included–leave Washington, D.C. to campaign full time in North Carolina, they have one last fundraising engagement.
On the iconic rooftop of a restaurant overlooking the Capitol and the Washington monument, Kit and her best pal Meg do their best to woo wealthy lobbyists for sizable campaign donations. Everyone’s enjoying the evening soiree until a powerful K Street tycoon mysteriously tumbles off the rooftop. Even with claims the fall must be suicide, Detective Maggie Glass and Kit aren’t so easily convinced foul play isn’t at work. While balancing Doug’s mid-life career crisis, Kit must spring into action to discover who killed the notorious Van Parker before Dixon’s candidacy sputters, even if it means investigating Meg’s handsome new beau, the victim’s conniving widow, and a bicycle advocate hell-bent on settling a long-standing grudge. When threatening note is left on Kit’s car, warning her to back off the investigation, she knows she’s closing in on the true story of what happened.

My Review: 5 Stars
This second book I’ve read in Colleen Shogun’s Washington Whodunit Series. In K Street Killing, Kit is working a fundraiser for her boss Maive Dixon when there is a suspicious death. Kit is also dealing with a change in her personal life as husband Doug considers a job in another city. As usual, I love reading about the world of politics and Shogun does a good job of letting the reader see this world of competition and negotiation. The mystery elements were good. I recognized some of the clues but didn’t figure out the killer. Death and intrigue in our nation’s capitol? Shocker.
