display_descriptionTake yourself on a journey into the world of international art dealers and museum curators, European castles and the White House. Margaret Truman's Murder in the Smithsonian tangles readers in an international plot that spans continents and governments. When Dr.Lewis Tunney, a brilliant historian, is boldly murdered during a posh black-tie affair at the Smithsonian Museum, Washington is set spinning with intrigue. D.C. Police Captain Mac Hanrahan takes over the case, but the more he uncovers, the more deeply he becomes entangled in the web of secrets, lies, and revenge. From the deceased Tunney's strong-willed fiancé, Heather McBean, to the congressmen with secrets to hide, Hanrahan finds himself under increasing pressure from all sides. He must do whatever he can to protect his government-and Heather McBean. Murder in the Smithsonian is the fourth volume in Truman's beloved Capital Crimes series, in which Truman enlivens history with her first-hand knowledge as the daughter of a U.S. president. The twenty-five Capital Crimes novels, published between 1980 and 2011, all revolve around Washington, D.C and its landmarks. The Smithsonian's museums, with their quirky staff, forensic scientists, and sometimes-spooky exhibits are the perfect setting for a thrilling political crime novel.
