Discovering the body of a friend and colleague was not what Adina Donati had in mind when she moved to Washington D.C. in search of excitement. An administrative assistant at a prestigious think tank, Adina is drawn into the middle of the murder investigation. The police don’t seem to be making much progress until Adina stumbles onto important clues and discovers just how dangerous life in the nation’s capitol.
My Review:
This is a captivating whodunit that will keep you on the edge of your seat with its plot twists and turns. I couldn't put it down and when it was done I eagerly wanted more. The characters are well developed and the story line holds your interest from the first page. I love visiting D.C. and this book really brought me back there with the details and story. I was hooked and hope you will read it to be hooked too.

(The book on Amazon:

I took a deep breath and let it out slowly, then described the scene to him to the best of my recollection. I could almost envision the restroom as it had been when I entered. The white sinks, the gray and white swirly wall tiles, and the open stall doors. Seemingly empty, until I approached the end stall.
It all came back to me and I started to tremble. “Hilary was laying on the floor, on her side, her hair falling into that pool of blood. Shockingly red and dark in contrast to the cool gray of the ceramic floor tiles.” Something wasn’t right, “Something bright green in her hair?”

  10. A captivating book which interests me. D.C. would be wonderful to visit especially The Holocaust Museum. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

  11. I would enjoy visiting DC and the Smithsonian. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  12. I went through Washington, D.C., on my way to Williamsburg, VA. I was on the Greyhound bus. It took about 12 hours to get to D.C. from Toledo, Ohio, and we had to get off the bus in Cleveland and Pittsburgh so the coach could be cleaned and refueled and one was a layover. We had a stopover in D.C. so all I saw was the bus station. They had a Hardee's inside and a gift shop so I bought some souvenirs like magnets and postcards and food from Hardee's. I caught a glimpse of the Capitol.

    I'd like to visit the zoo and the Smithsonian and if there's another natural history museum I'd like to go there too. A tour of the White House would also be great.

  13. I like the synopsis, sounds like a good read.


  14. I haven't been to D.C. im years but have spent many a times caught in the Beltway driving from Florida to Philadelphia! This sounds like an interesting book! Thanks for the chance!

  15. I haven't been to D.C. and really have no desire to go, except that I hear there is a book convention in the area. Maybe someday I will get there. But for now, I will just have to go there through books....

  16. I wonder what life is like in Washington D.C. for top official. This poor woman finds her friend and colleague dead. Would like to know the details. What happened?

  17. I have fond memories of our trips to Washington, DC. but have not been a quite a few years due to health issues. But what I remember for one thing is how organized the city is; with easy ability to get around even with the deepest subways ever. One hot summer day while there, there was a power outage and no escalators were working and we had to climb all of the stairs to the trains. Not a fun thing to do on a day when it was near 100 degrees.

    I will be anxious to read your book; sounds great. Glad that I was able to have time to read Shelly's blog post today to find out about you, Cassidy.

    Would love to win a copy of your book. I am not a very lucky person in general, but it is still fun to enter with hope.

    Much success.
